Sony plans to increase its share of the mid-brightness projector market with a combination of new laser and lamp models for business, academic, large venue or entertainment use.
Two of the new models combine 3LCD with a laser models lightsource (VPL-FHZ65 and VPL-FHZ60) to expand Sony’s growing line of Z-Phosphor laser projectors. They join the world’s first 3LCD laser projector, the 4,000 lumen VPL-FHZ55, widely used in smaller rooms, and the 7,000 lumen VPL-FHZ700L designed for larger venue commercial spaces in education, corporate, government and museum applications.
The new WUXGA (1920 x 1200) laser models deliver brightness of 6,000 lumens (VPL-FHZ65) and 5,000 lumens (VPL-FHZ60) as does the similarly bright lamp model (VPL-FH65) and the 5,000 lumens (VPL-FH60). The new models are designed to deliver enhanced picture quality with new features such as “Reality Creation” and “Contrast Enhancer,” which are both technologies already being used in Sony’s high-end home cinema projectors.
Robert Meakin, Product Marketing Manager for B2B projectors at Sony Professional Europe said: “We have a very simple product strategy when it comes to laser technology over UHP lamp based projectors, we offer both to our partners and customers. They can then decide what best fits their needs. The introduction of these 4 news models continues with this strategy and gives our customers an unprecedented level of picture quality.”
