Sony unveils two new 3LCD laser projectors

The new VPL-FHZ85 and VPL-FHZ80 from Sony "combine brightness with efficiency, installation flexibility and advanced operational capabilities", and are suited to corporate, education, and entertainment environments

Sony Professional Displays and Solutions has released two new WUXGA 3LCD laser projectors: the VPL-FHZ85 and VPL-FHZ80, which it said “combine brightness with efficiency, installation flexibility and advanced operational capabilities”.

The company said that the VPL-FHZ85 is the smallest and lightest model in the mid-range projector class with both models being suitable for use across corporate, education, museum, and entertainment simulation applications. Both models offer high brightness, with the VPL-FHZ85 at 7,300 lumens (8,000 lumens centre) and the VPL-FHZ80 at 6,000 lumens (6,500 lumens centre).

“As we continue to bring more robust and purpose-built projection solutions to market, we’ve addressed our customers’ struggle to find options that provide both brightness and exceptional image quality,” said Robert Meakin, European product manager, Professional Solutions Europe. “With the VPL-FHZ85’s 8,000 lumens centre, we’ve done just that, while building on Sony’s legacy in developing feature-rich laser projectors that are easy to install, operate and maintain, all while presenting an optimal, authentic picture.”

The models are integrated with Sony’s Reality Creation real-time signal processing, mapping and analysis technology, and both support 4K60P input for compatibility with 4K video sources. They also feature advanced ‘intelligent settings’ for optimisation based on usage environment and customised ‘bright view’ functionality, which enables colours to “accurately maintain their contrast and vivacity, even in brightly lit rooms”.

Both the VPL-FHZ85 and VPL-FHZ80 are expected to be released in January 2022.
