Sony introduces two laser projectors at ISE 2019
Sony added to its laser projector lineup with the introduction of two new installation models, the VPL-FHZ75 and VPL-FHZ70 at ISE 2019 in Amsterdam.
The new additions cater to the increased market demand for immersive and high brightness projection in midsize environments such as schools, corporations, churches, museums, and entertainment installations.
Offering WUXGA resolution and color light output of 6500 lumens and 5500 lumens, respectively, the VPL-FHZ75 and VPL-FHZ70 use a newly-developed 0.76-inch LCD panel with an incorporated optical compensator to deliver images offering true blacks and accurate-to-life colour reproduction.
Developed for BRAVIA displays and high-end home theater projectors, Sony’s resolution technology ‘Reality Creation’ analyzes images to the pixel level to enhance clarity in every detail. Combining high contrast with the benefits of Reality Creation, the VPL-FHZ75 and VPL-FHZ70 provide clarity in images and text.
Both models come with an ‘intelligent setting’ feature developed using Sony’s experience in laser projection, research and detailed feedback from customers. This new feature simplifies the installation process by automatically selecting the best configuration based on the projectors’ environment. The products’ four pre-set modes include: meeting/classrooms, museums, entertainment venues, and multi-screen setups. These modes enable users to optimize the projectors’ performance in relation to each environment, whether it’s adapting to a well-lit meeting room where brightness is most important, quiet environments such as museums requiring low noise level, or multi-screen usage where color matching is essential.
The projectors offer a lens shift capability of Vertical +70%. This offers more options for where the projectors can be positioned, and it ensures that the presenter or visitors will not be distracted by the projector’s light source.
The VPL-FHZ75 and VPL-FHZ70 are planned to be available in spring 2019 and will come in both black and white finishes.
