Sony delivers two 4K laser projectors
Sony has unveiled two 4K laser light source projectors, the VPL-GTZ270 is designed for use in planetariums, theme parks, museums and retail, and the VPL-GTZ280 for simulation, visualisation and training usage.
Both 5,000 lumen models have native SXRD 4K (4096x2160) resolution, and join Sony’s VPL-GTZ1 model to create a family of 4K laser light source projectors designed for a range of B2B and commercial applications. Both can also operate in 4K 3D mode.
Like Sony’s other laser light source projectors, the VPL-GTZ270 and the VPL-GTZ280 can deliver up to 20,000 hours of maintenance-free operation (or up to 40,000 hours in low brightness mode).
Constant brightness mode and periodic auto calibration also contribute to longer life operation. Both models have sealed optics for dust-resistance when used in high-traffic areas, and run with operational noise of less than 35dB. The projectors also offer flexible installation options with complete tilt angle free capabilities including clockwise or counter clockwise, portrait or landscape orientation, forward or back.
The VPL-GTZ270 will be available in January 2016 and the VPL-GTZ280 in March 2016.
