Sony reveal first 3LCD laser projector
Laser projectors aren’t necessarily new in the audio-visual world, but Sony is thought to be the first to combine this great technology with 3LCD. Their latest projector, the VPL-FHZ55, was first showcased at this year’s ISE expo and is likely to be a hit in the likes of the education and corporate sectors due to its longevity. The laser technology means lamps do not need changing, saving on maintenance costs and increasing durability. This can often create a less bright image but Sony have managed to keep it shining with 4,000 lumens, which can also help with visibility in less-than-dark boardrooms.
As long as the projector is kept in an acceptable environment, the 3LCD high definition image can last 20,000 hours maintenance free and uses less power than many DLP projectors, helping your establishment’s green image. Here’s how Sony sum up the product, “Based on Sony’s Laser Light Source Technology, the projector incorporates lasers, rather than LEDs, to achieve optimum brightness. The white light, like traditional UHP light sources, is directed into the 3LCD engine to deliver incredible picture quality. As a result, the Laser Light Source Projector has substantially brighter images, better contrast ratios and outstanding colour stability.”
The projector will be available this summer but for now a price has not been shared. If you would like to keep update with projection and need some support, please feel free to contact us.
