Sony unveils laser light source projector
Sony is to launch the VPL-FHZ55, its lamp-less projector based on a laser light source.
It uses 3LCD imaging technology to achieve 4,000 lumens of colour light output at WUXGA resolution (1920 x 1200).
The new projector, scheduled to be released in August, uses blue laser as its light source, which excites a phosphorous material that in turn creates white light. The white light is delivered to the 3LCD optical system generating full-time RGB colour through a colour splitting process.
The HG (mercury) free projector features Auto Light Dimming, Auto Brightness Adjustment and Constant Brightness mode allows users to maintain brightness throughout the expected 20,000 hour life by driving the projector at reduced light output.
