This is a fully featured 2000 ANSI lumens 350:1 contrast ratio projector. Its 0.63" 3LCD imaging panels (the part that creates the image) delivers sharper and brighter images with superior grayscale detail. Smooth, seamless color combined with an unparalleled grayscale range delivers incredible detail to every image displayed by the VPL-ES7.
The VPL-ES7 also has the international credentials you've come to expect in more expensive projectors. It's got a world-ready 100 to 240 volt 50/60 Hz power supply. It can handle NTSC, NTSC 4.43, PAL, PAL-M, PAL-N, PAL-60 and SECAM video signals. And it has a 17 language onscreen display (OSD). The VPL-ES7 also decodes and displaysclosed-captioning information from programming that provides it, benefiting those in your audience with hearing impairment. It helps people whose native language isn't English.
This projector can also handle 720/60p, 720/50p, 1080/60i and 1080/50i high definition signals. (The "50" variants are used mostly in video production.)
Although Sony doesn't bill the VPL-ES7 as a "short throw" projector it can still create a pretty big picture in a pretty tight space. At a distance of just 7.5 feet it can project an image that measures 80 inches across diagonally.
Although you can permanently mount the VPL-ES7 if you present on the move you'll appreciate its Off & Go feature. Instead of waiting around for the fan to cool down and the lamp you can just turn the projector off, unplug it from the wall socket and be on your way.
Overall a great product from Sony which can achieve a lot of success.
High image quality in cinemas, and in all the films we are, in fact, obliged Sony. Without them there would be no no no 3D HD video. Today, everyone recognizes that digital projectors in cinemas give a better picture than the film: more clean, clear, stable, rich, contrasting... In General, pleasant in all respects. If not Sony, such projectors in movie theaters and in our time were rare, because the film industry is a very conservative industry, though it does not say at first glance.
Many filmmakers until recently used to shoot film camera. It's not their love for the film to work with it much more. Only now they began to develop a digital camera. And thanks to Sony, which has put a lot of effort to do this.
Now let's talk specifically about the model Sony VPL ES7.
Advantages: Quite good transferred image, the brightness is enough to use day even not really shading the room. The diagonal image size to ~a 7.62 meter that very few do not. Use only in ECO mode. The lamp life 3000 hours power 190 watts. Modest size, with a weight of 2.9 kg very comfortable to carry. The fan noise is almost inaudible.
Cons:Almost none. The noisy fan only modes high brightness, but it all applies. Pretty weak speaker, but he is not the main function of the projector.
Enjoy the company of six months. Not every day, but during this time clocked about 150 hours. If the lamp in ECO mode will work claimed 3000 hours, it will last 5 years. After the first few viewings, satisfied, as if he had been in the cinema. Watching movies with high quality images even after 6 months of impressive. TV, of course, brighter and more contrast, but a TV with such a diagonal is very costly. Impression from the use of only positive. Problems or no.
