Sony Launches Education Program for Displays, Projectors


Sony has its eye on the education market. The company recently launched a new program, called "Eye on Education," aimed at providing discounts, support, and other benefits to K-12 schools and post-secondary institutions on its displays and projectors.

The program provides discounts, education-specific service and support, financing options, free extensions of warranties, and "trade-in opportunities," according to Sony. As part of the program, Sony has discounted several business projectors for education customers. The projectors start at $584, with six of the models for less than $1,000. Education discounts range from roughly $400 to about $2,500, depending on the model.

LCD displays and digital signage players have also been discounted significantly as a part of the program.

The discounts are available without the need for rebates. Sony is offering one rebate program now through Sept. 30: a free extra lamp with the purchase of a VPL-CX100, VPL-CX120, VPL-EX5, or VPL-EX50 projector.
