Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The VPL-EX245 does not support full HD. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago also do not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Epson 475Wi, or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A are also worth considering.

HD-Ready

Average Projector Brightness

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the NEC UM330Xi (£925.40) (3,300 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
