PARK RIDGE, N.J.—Sony’s family of laser light source projectors is growing by five with the announcement of a series of new WUXGA resolution models. The VPL-FHZ120L (12,000lm), VPL-FHZ90L (9,000lm), VPL-FHZ66 (6,100lm), VPL-FHZ61 (5,100lm) and VPL-FHZ58 (4,200lm) models are able to work in large venues, mid-size classrooms and other venues.
Each of the newly introduced projector models features Z-Phosphor Laser with a blue laser as its light source complemented by a 3LCD optical system for a full spectrum of light and continuous RGB color. Each model also features auto color calibration.
The VPL-FHZ120L and VPL-FHZ90L use a LCD panel with enhanced light resistance, while the VPL-FHZ120L has an optical compensator for high contrast and covers sRGB100 percent. Both models also feature wide lens shift capabilities and six lens pre-set positions for instant recall and enhanced usability, and HTML content display functions offer the ability to project customized content.
The three mid-range models—VPL-FHZ66, VPL-FHZ61 and VPL-FHZ58—feature compact bodies, long-lasting brightness, up to 20,000 hours of maintenance-free operation, easy set-up and no need to replace lamps.
All of the new Sony models are compatible with the latest software packages, including Vision Exchange active learning solution, Display Power Management software and IP Remote App.
Sony will accept pre-orders for the projectors in April with shipping expecting to begin in summer 2018.
