Sony Expands Laser Projector Line with Five New Models

Publish date:

Sony is adding five new WUXGA resolution models to its family of laser light source projectors.

The new models include the VPL-FHZ120L (12,000lm) for larger venues, the VPL-FHZ90L (9,000lm) for mid-sized classrooms, and the compact VPL-FHZ66 (6,100lm), VPL-FHZ61 (5,100lm) and VPL-FHZ58 (4,200lm). 

Each model uses Sony’s  Z-Phosphor Laser with a blue laser as its light source complemented by a 3LCD optical system. The five new projectors feature auto color calibration, and instant on/off, which can be used to begin presentations at full brightness, with almost no warm-up/cool down time.

The VPL-FHZ120L and VPL-FHZ90L use a newly-developed LCD panel with enhanced light resistance, and for the VPL-FHZ120L, anoptical compensator to realize high contrast.

The VPL-FHZ120L is intended for auditoriums and conference halls requiring AV solutions to support live performances and ceremonies. 

The VPL-FHZ90L is suitable for mid-sized classrooms or corporate meeting rooms, including those with challenging ambient lighting. 

The three new mid-range WUXGA models -- VPL-FHZ66 (6100lm), VPL-FHZ61 (5100lm) and VPL-FHZ58 (4200lm) -- feature compact bodies designed for small to mid-sized rooms, while offering up to 20,000 hours of maintenance-free operation, fast set-up and no need to replace lamps.

Pre-orders for each of the new models will begin in April, with planned availability for the 5 new models beginning in summer 2018.
