Sony India has launched today 3LCD Laser Light Source Projector in India. The new model, VPL-FHZ55, is a WUXGA-class (1920 x 1200) installation projector based on a blue laser light source, and is the world’s first 3LCD laser projector. Capable of achieving 4,000 lumens, it is one of the brightest projectors of its kind, and delivers a range of performance capabilities that eliminate many issues associated with conventional lamp-based projection.
The projector’s light engine uses blue laser as its light source, which excites a phosphorous material that in turn creates white light. The white light is delivered to a 3LCD optical system, generating constant, vibrant RGB colour through a colour splitting process. The resulting 4,000 lumens output produces brightness sufficient for a broad range of commercial applications.
The VPL-FHZ55 offers virtually maintenance-free operation for up to 20,000 hours of expected light source, display device and filter use. This frees users from the worry of lamp change, and provides a good return on investment with a low total cost of ownership (TCO). This is especially important in the corporate, entertainment, museum, hospitality and education sectors, where the projector is used for extended periods of time.
The mercury-free VPL-FHZ55 comes equipped with energy efficient features such as Auto Light Dimming, Auto Brightness Adjustment, and Constant Brightness Mode. This projector can be switched on or off in an instant, resuming to full brightness easily without any limitations in the number or duration of on/off cycles. The Constant Brightness Mode allows stable projection useful for applications including digital signage, museums or even classrooms, where it is critical to maintain a consistent visual experience for viewers.
This projector gives supreme installation flexibility, and can be positioned freely at any angle, on its side, or even upside down for seamless installation in nearly any setting.
The VPL-FHZ55 is available in a black- or white-coloured chassis, and will be available across all authorized dealers in India from Sept’13, at MRP of Rs. 4,75,000.
