The new ultra short throw Sony VPL-SX535 is a 3,000 ANSI lumen 3LCD projector with 2500:1 contrast ratio spec that uses an XGA (1024×768) resolution LCD. It claims to project an 80-inch image from less than two feet away. Integrated with Ethernet control and Sony’s BrightEra technology that claims to deliver improved panel light resistance, higher resolution, high brightness and increased panel reliability, the VPL-SX535 includes an EcoMode, lamp dimming in different ambient conditions and less than 1 watt of power in stand-by, making it a GreenAV product.
The new VPL-SX535 inputs include VGA and S-Video, but no HDMI?!? What the heck? It is network controllable, plus has IR and RS232.
It lists for $2,030 and full specs are here: http://pro.sony.com/bbsc/ssr/product-VPLSX535/
