Sony VPL-CS2 SuperLite Projector Review

The VPL-CS2 “SuperLite”™ LCD Projector is Sony’s smallest and lightest projector, and yet it provides superior image quality via three panel LCD technology. While small, the projector offers big features such as digital keystone correction, multiscan capability, enough brightness to display images with the lights on, Sony’s new Projector Station software, a remote control, and a carrying case.

Extremely Small and Lightweight
The CS2 is Sony’s smallest projector. It is the same size as B5 notebook paper, and it weighs just 6.4lbs! In addition, the CS2 comes with an easy to grip handle and detachable strap that allow you to take it anywhere.

High Brightness Output
Using a new 120W UHP lamp, the VPL-CS2 can output 600 ANSI lumens of brightness, enough to display images in a fully lit room.

Silent Fan Noise
A new mechanical cooling structure combined with sapphire glass on the polarizer plate mean the projector needs less air. Add a state of the art fan design, and this projector outputs just 36dB of fan noise, quiet enough for normal conversation even when very close to the projector.

Multiscan Capability
An internal scan converter allows the projector to display many resolutions such as VGA, XGA, and SXGA in addition to its native SVGA resolution. The ultimate in flexibility allowing easy connectivity to a variety of sources.

Unique Mechanical Design
Unique Mechanical Design – The VPL-CS2 front cover protects the unit from shock and dust, and also doubles as the front leg during operation. Nothing to lose, easy, convenient. In addition cover has a built in handle for easy transport when not in use.

Digital Keystone Correction
A state of the art video processing engine enables the VPL-CS2 to adjust the video image to remove keystone errors. Handy and useful when projecting an image very high on a wall.

USB Hub Function
The VPL-CS2 features a USB hub port for enhanced digital connectivity.

Projector Station Software
Sony new Projector Station software allows the projector’s remote to launch an electronic presentation via the touch of a single remote control button. It also allows a computer to remote control the projector’s image control features such as brightness, contrast, and picture mute. A total of 127 projectors can be controlled.

Remote Control
The VPL-CS2 remote control is small, and beautiful. It allows control of electronic presentations and a computer’s mouse functions, and when used with Projector Station software it can automatically open an entire presentation with the press of just one button.

Carrying Case
An attractive way to keep the projector dust free and move it about the office or home. The detachable strap can be removed and connected directly to the projector.
