Sony BRAVIA VPL-AW15 Projector

720P Home Theater Projector
Calculate Throw Distance

From Sony —   Driven by advanced features like 3LCD technology and 1080/24p True Cinema (1080p requires 1080p source), the VPL-AW15 HD projector makes images look more lifelike than ever. And a screen size of up to 200"(diagonal) presents you with the most theater-like atmosphere possible. Sit back and enjoy the bright scenes that the Advanced Iris2 Function delivers. Even more impressive is an achieved 12,000:1 contrast ratio, which produces deeper, more robust dark colors and vibrant and clear bright colors. Capable of being mounted on a table or the ceiling, this projector can transform almost any room into a cinema.

ANSI LUMENS  is the most commonly accepted industry standard brightness measurement. The ANSI lumen rating measures the brightest white that a projector can produce by averaging nine light meter measurements taken across the projected image.
