Both laser and lamp models have BrightEra panel technology and are designed for approximately 20,000 hours of maintenance-free operation, with features including Auto Dimming and Auto Brightness reducing energy costs.

All four models additionally have built-in HDBaseT interfaces, and a wide powered lens shift suited to installation in challenging environments.

Each one can also be combined with a variety of optional lenses, including a short throw and tele-zoom covering up to 4.84:1 throw range.

The VPL-FWZ60 will be released in Europe in March 2016, followed by the VPL-FWZ65 in April. The lamp model VPL-FW60 will be released in May, before the VPL-FW65 is released in June.
