Sony announced the launch of its 3LCD Laser Light Source Projector. The new model, VPL-FHZ55, is a WUXGA-class (1920 x 1200) installation projector based on a blue laser light source and is the world's first 3LCD laser projector. Capable of achieving 4,000 lumens, it is one of the brightest projectors of its kind, and delivers a range of performance capabilities that eliminate many issues associated with conventional lamp-based projection.

"3LCD laser projection technology really marks a shift in the market. It produces images of extremely high white light and colour light output for optimal colour performance compared to other forms of laser projection. It also features almost instant on/off capabilities that are much quicker than conventional lamp-based projection. The absence of a conventional lamp and mercury also makes 3LCD laser projectors virtually maintenance-free and eco-friendly," said Shuji Okada, General Manager Marketing, Sony Professional Solutions Middle East & Africa. "Combining the right mix of operational and design features, the 3LCD laser projectors provide superior quality and usability making it ideal for applications in education, corporate organisations or museums."

The projector's light engine uses blue laser as its light source, which excites a phosphorous material that in turn creates white light. The VPL-FHZ55 offers virtually maintenance-free operation for up to 20,000 hours of expected light source, display device and filter use. The mercury-free VPL-FHZ55 comes equipped with energy efficient features such as Auto Light Dimming, which dims light output to as low as 5% when left powered on without use; Auto Brightness Adjustment, which eliminates unnecessary illumination when a dark picture is projected; and Constant Brightness Mode, which allows users to maintain brightness throughout the expected 20,000 hours* life by driving the projector at reduced light output.
