Sony adds two new compact, lightweight and professional 3LCD laser projectors

By

The VPL-PHZ60 6,000 lumen and VPL-PHZ50 5,000 lumen options are among the industry’s smallest compact WUXGA 3LCD laser projectors, both models are “optimised for use in small to medium-sized conference rooms and classrooms, as well as golf simulators”.

Sony has launched two new 3LCD WUXGA laser projectors, promising that both combine “image quality, installation flexibility and high reliability” as headline features, with the 6,000 lumen VPL-PHZ60, priced at AUD $5499, and the 5,000 lumen VPL-PHZ50 priced at $4899.

Both models “are less than 4 inches (approximately 10.16cm) high and weighs approximately 15 pounds (6.8kg), ideal for a wide range of corporate, education and entertainment applications.”

Sony tells us that, “due to its weight and size, that, as of November 18, 2020, the VPL-PHZ60 is “the industry’s smallest WUXGA 3LCD laser projector in its lumen class”.

And due to its “wide lens shift function and intelligent setting mode”, Sony says its projectors “are optimised for use in small to medium-sized conference rooms and classrooms, as well as golf simulators”.

Here’s more information from Sony:

"The projectors offer exceptional image quality, driven by Sony’s original “Reality Creation” technology, which provides enhanced clarity in images and text, without increasing digital picture noise. Additionally, the 3LCD laser light source maintains bright, vivid and true to life colours and imagery. Accurate colour reproduction is further supported by the signal processing engine’s colour gradation capabilities.

"The VPL-PHZ60 and VPL-PHZ50 were designed with flexibility and ease of use in mind. Due to its light weight and compact size, the projectors can easily adapt to different mounting and installation challenges. The blend-in design means that it can fit into various usage environments. With a best-in-class wide lens shift of vertical +55%, which enables easy ceiling-mounting, and supports 4K 30P, these projectors pack numerous industry-requested features into a small chassis."

"Additionally, Sony’s unique picture engine enables the new “Bright View” feature which projects vivid images with high visibility even in bright environments, while faithfully maintaining the RGB balance with minimal colour shift. By detecting the video signal pixel-by-pixel and dynamically optimising the process, contrast is improved while maintaining colour reproduction. Crisp and bright images are projected even in well-lit environments for effective presentation.

"A hallmark of Sony’s technology is its durability and dependability. The VPL-PHZ60 and VPL-PHZ50 allow users to select projection modes based on installation location and intended usage, which can optimise performance, maximise longevity and provide reliability. The installation location pre-sets 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".

Anna Tan, the Product Manager of Displays at Sony Professional Solutions A/NZ said: “Sony was the first to market with a laser light source 3LCD projector in 2013 and we’ve continued to evolve our line-up and expand our offerings ever since.

“As we enhance our portfolio, we are setting new standards while meeting market demand. The VPL-PHZ60 and VPL-PHZ50 are thoughtfully designed choices that offer our customers brightness, dependability and flexibility, in a compact form factor. These new models provide users with two more impressive options which empower them to select the projector best suited to their specific needs and budgets.”

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
