Highlights for Sony VPL-FH31/W 4300 Lumens 1920 x 1200 WUXGA 2000:1 3LCD Installation Projector

The Sony VPL-FH31 4300 Lumens WUXGA Installation Projector (White) is designed to fit smoothly into almost any environment where a high-quality projector is required. Its brightness, zoom and throw range, coupled with its wide lens shift range, mean it can perform where other projectors would struggle - even in high ambient light.

Once installed, the VPL-FH31 has excellent image capabilities and a long lifespan that delivers low Total Cost of Ownership. Sony's BrightEra technology improves and maintains color purity throughout the life of the system by protecting the LCD panels against harmful ultra violet light. Clever features such as synchronized lamp and filter replacement cycles reduce costs and downtime.

Featuring the usual wide range of features, the VPL-FH31 also allows for edge blend (multiple projectors with seamless connection), warping and Portrait mode installation for retail, corporate signage applications. Other features include advanced projection capabilities such as side-by-side image projection and DICOM medical training, the VPL-FH31 is an obvious projector choice for venues that demand quality, unique installation locations and practicality.

This product comes with PrimeSupport - fast, hassle-free repairs and a helpline offering expert technical advice, giving you the peace of mind that Sony is looking after your equipment and your business.


  • 3 LCD XGA BrightEra Panel Technology: Sony's BrightEra Panel Technology gives more accurate color rendition, higher brightness and longer lifespan for a lower Total Cost of Ownership
  • Ultra High Resolution: The VPL-FH31's WUXGA (1920x1200) 16:10 format resolution delivers absolute best image quality
  • Very High Brightness: 4300 Lumens Color Light Output: With very high brightness of 4300 Lumens Color Light Output, the VPL-FH31 gives a clearer image in high ambient light, making it highly suitable for larger venues
  • Wide Zoom Range (x1.6) and Throw Ratio (1.4 to 2.3) as standard: The standard lens has a wide zoom capability and throw ratio, offering more flexibility over the positioning of the projector, which can be installed closer to or further away from the screen
  • Wide Lens Shift Range: Vertical: +60%, Horizontal: +/- 32%: The VPL-FH31's wide lens shift range means that the projector can be positioned closer to the ceiling, or horizontally offset to avoid ceiling obstacles
  • Long Lamp Replacement Time: 3,000-4,000 hours (High/Std): Longer lamp life means fewer visits by maintenance personnel and lower Total Cost of Ownership
  • Lamp/Filter Replacement Cycles Synchronized: Synchronized lamp and filter replacement effectively halves the number of visits needed to maintain the projector in peak operating condition
  • Interchangeable Lenses: Z1024, Z1032: The VPL-FH31 allows you to choose different lenses for increased flexibility
  • Edge Blend: Multiple VPL-FH31 projectors have the ability to project a single seamless image onto a screen (wall) creating an exciting visual event, or retail or corporate signage application
  • Warping Projection: Warping projection allows the customer to adjust the corners and sides of a VPL-FH31 projected image to any convex or concave screen set up or wall for dynamic signage displays
  • Portrait Mode: The VPL-FH31 can be installed on its side (fan side down) for any portrait signage application
  • Side by Side Image Projection: Side by side twin image gives you the ability to project from two inputs (RGB + any other Input) at the same time, making the projector ideal for applications like video conferencing and DICOM medical training
  • DICOM GSDF Simulation: The VPL-FH31 offers DICOM GSDF Simulation (HDMI with computer signals), which conforms to GSDF (Grayscale Standard Display Function) of medical standards for DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine)
  • Wide Range of Image Adjustments: This wide range of image adjustments allows the projector to be installed in almost any location. Where equipment is being upgraded, installers are more likely to be able to use existing mounts
  • User Panel Alignment: Pixel alignment shifts the entire image or desired range (H: 16 X V: 10 pixels) for complete color correction
  • Color Matching: The VPL-FH31 offers brightness and color matching adjustment to the original image for complete image accuracy
  • Lower Operating Power Consumption than Previous Models: Lower operating power consumption helps reduce energy consumption and lowers running costs
