Sony introduced at InfoComm 2013 the VPL-FHZ55 Projector, its first lamp-less projector that uses 3LCD technology.
The 4,000-lumen, WUXGA (1920 x 1200) VPL-FHZ55 uses a blue laser as its light source that uses “a phosphorous material that in turn creates white light” that is delivered to the 3LCD system.
The projector touts 20,000 hours of maintenance-free operation and includes several energy-saving features, including:
- Auto Light Dimming - dims light output down to 5% when left powered on without use
- Auto Brightness Adjustment - eliminates unnecessary illumination when a dark picture is projected
- Constant Brightness Mode - allows users to maintain brightness throughout the expected 20,000 hour life by driving the projector at reduced light output
Sony says the use of a laser light source gives the projector instant “on/off” capability and “tilt- free” capability. Combined with 1.6x standard zoom lens, V:+60% H:+/-32% lens shift, built-in edge-blending and geometric correction, the VPL-FHZ55 seems fit for a variety of commercial installations.
Sony says the VPL-FHZ55 laser light source projector will ship in August 2013. No word on pricing.
