Sony Professional Solutions Europe’s laser projector line-up has now begun shipping across Europe. The VPL-FHZ120L (12,000lm) is Sony’s highest brightness model yet, to meet the needs of large venues, from conference halls, auditoriums and lecture theatres to museums and other large scale visitor attractions. While the VPL-FHZ90L (9,000lm) is ideal for both mid and large-size venues.
The new models are now and the maker reports significant interest from dealers with circa 100 pre-orders already placed. Amidst growing demand for high brightness projectors for large venues, Sony says its customers are excited for the new models and are looking forward to installing them and impressing their audiences.
Both the VPL-FHZ120L and VPL-FHZ90L use a newly-developed LCD panel with enhanced light resistance, and for the VPL-FHZ120L, an optical compensator designed to realise high contrast that delivers stable brightness and high image quality with vibrant colour reproduction. Sony’s Z-Phosphor Laser uses a blue laser as its light source alongside a 3LCD optical system, to achieve the full spectrum of light and continuous, clear RGB colour, says the manufacturer.
“Sony has always believed laser technology is the future for installation projectors, and the huge response to our new models announced at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) earlier this year demonstrates our customers are also looking to inspire their audiences with new, high brightness models that bring clear, bright imagery with nearly zero maintenance costs,” says Robert Meakin, European product manager at Sony Professional Solutions Europe. “By working alongside our customers, we’re confident that Sony will continue to lead the way in projection technology.”
With stable brightness and vibrant colour reproduction thanks to their newly developed 3LCD panels, Sony claims the VPL-FHZ120L & VPL-FHZ90L are some of the most technologically advanced projectors on the market.
Other features include
- Wide lens shift (Max. Vertical ±107%, Horizontal ±60%) and a range of optional lens installations to address the varying needs of each customer’s installation
- With up to 6 lens pre-set positions the projectors can memorise size, position and aspect ratio (16:9, 4:3) to ensure there is no need to adjust the settings each time it is used
