Sony Electronics Releases Two New Compact WUXGA Laser Projectors

SonySony Electronics’ newest WUXGA laser projectors, the VPL-PHZ60(6,000lm) and VPL-PHZ50 (5,000lm) are both compact models — less than four inches high and approximately 15 pounds — designed for corporate, education and entertainment applications. Sony says the VPL-PHZ60 is the industry’s smallest WUXGA 3LCD laser projector in its lumen class and it includes lens shift.

Both projectors are driven by Sony’s original “Reality Creation” technology, which Sony says provides enhanced clarity and expression in images and text, without increasing digital picture noise. Additionally, the projectors’ 3LCD laser light source maintains bright over time as they re both laser.

The VPL-PHZ60 and VPL-PHZ50 can adapt to different mounting and installation challenges and requirements and their blend-in design can fit into various usage environments. With a lens shift of Vertical 55% you can ceiling-mount them anywhere and input processing includes support for 4K 30p — scaled down, of course.

Additionally, Sony’s picture engine enables the new “Bright View” feature which projects images with high visibility even in bright environments, while Sony says faithfully maintaining the RGB balance with minimal color shift. By detecting the video signal pixel-by-pixel and dynamically optimizing the process, contrast is improved while maintaining color reproduction. The projectors are designed to deliver crisp and bright images even in well-lit environments for effective presentation.

The VPL-PHZ60 and VPL-PHZ50 allow users to select projection modes based on installation location and intended usage, which can optimize performance, maximize longevity and provide reliability. The installation location presets automatically adjust the image quality, light source output level and cooling system, while the adaptable Advanced Intelligent Setting function simplifies the installation process by automatically selecting the best configuration based on the projector’s environment.

The VPL-PHZ60 and VPL-PHZ50 are planned to be available in December 2020.
