Sony adds two laser projectors at ISE 2017
Sony is expanding its range of laser projectors by introducing two models, the 5,000 lumens WUXGA VPL-PHZ10 and 5,000 lumens WXGA VPL-PWZ10 projectors.
The VPL-PHZ10 and VPL-PWZ10 projectors offer a cost-effective option for smaller spaces, including small classrooms and meeting rooms, but benefit from the same 3LCD Z-Phosphor laser light source technology as Sony’s existing installation laser projectors.
The laser projectors are designed for 20,000 hours of maintenance free operation, and include a number of energy-saving features such as Auto Dimming and Auto Brightness, reducing TCO costs compared to projectors with a conventional lamp source.
Adding these projectors to the range means Sony now offers eight laser projectors for the education and corporate markets, ranging from 4,100lm to 7,000lm in WXGA and WUXGA.
The two new projectors feature 3LCD BrightEra technology, projecting red, green and blue components of the image separately to ensure natural colours and avoid the ‘colour breaking’ that can impact other projection systems.
The projectors feature instant on/off functionality, tilt-angle-free design and wide range vertical/horizontal lens shift.
This fourth generation of Sony laser projectors includes a new blend-in slim design with low acoustic noise, enabling the projectors to fit seamlessly into the environment around them. They also include HDBaseT interfaces, enabling connectivity and reducing total system costs by using a single cable, which runs all the video, audio, control and IP signal up to 100m.
The new VPL-PHZ10 projector will be available from May 2017 and the VPL-PWZ10 from July 2017 across Europe. They will be showcased for the first time at Sony’s stand 1-N20 at ISE 2017, from 7-10 February.
