Sony has announced the expansion of its Z-Phosphor laser light source projector range following the introduction of two new LaserLite models.
Aimed at making laser technology more cost-effective, the VPL-PHZ10 and VPL-PWZ10 projectors have been specifically designed to introduce laser projection technology into classroom and meeting settings.
According to Sony, laser projectors bring numerous benefits to these environments, including advanced image quality, brilliant colour reproduction and no need for maintenance.
These benefits are made possible by the addition of a new fixed wide zoom lens to both models, providing a lower-cost, higher-quality option with a total constant brightness of 4,500 lumens for up to 12,000 hours (around five years in standard use). The devices also achieve a maximum brightness of 5,000 lumens when constant brightness mode is turned off.
When it comes to resolution, both the VPL-PHZ10 and VPL-PWZ10 deliver impressive image quality of WUXGA and WXGA respectively. When combined with the devices’ stylish design and powerful technology, this level of image quality makes them worthy additions to the highly respected LaserLite range.
The new devices have been created to suit any environment within academic institutions and corporate settings, and feature both low power consumption and low fan noise for minimal disruption.
“Projector users need options, since every room is different with varying installation and environmental challenges,” said Yoshi Koike, marketing manager for business projectors at Sony Electronics. “With these two new models, users now have the option of converting to laser throughout a facility, where in the past, a mix of laser and lamp models made more sense due to budget constraints.”
