New models feature high brightness and compact design

sony-projectorSony is adding new models to its line of professional projectors, with each designed to deliver high image quality, high brightness and enhanced flexibility. The update includes three projector additions to its 3LCD series, each with a brightness of 4,200.

The new compact projectors include the VPL-EW348, VPL-EW345 and VPL-EX345 models. The VPL-EW348 model has a built-in HDBaseT interface for easier connectivity and reduced total system costs. HDBaseT capabilities allow installers and integrators to reduce their number of cable runs by transmitting video, audio, control and IP over a single Cat5e/6 cable for up to 328 feet (100m).

Sony is also introducing two 3LCD laser models (VPL-FHZ65 and VPL-FHZ60) to expand its growing line of Z-Phosphor laser light source projectors. WUXGA (1920 x 1200) laser models deliver brightness of 6,000 lumens (VPL-FHZ65) and 5,000 lumens (VPL-FHZ60). The new laser models are designed to deliver enhanced picture quality with new features such as “Reality Creation” and “Contrast Enhancer.” A laser light source means there’s no lamp that needs to slowly warm up or cool down.

The new laser models’ quick turn on/off requires only approximately 7 seconds for the brightness to ramp up after turning on. There is also a quick reboot mode available which allows users to reboot the projector in just one second.

Additional information about the new projectors can be found online.
