Clearer images and text
Reality Creation uses powerful algorithms that boost image resolution closer to 4K-like quality. Reality Text improves visibility of characters: great for conference rooms, university seminar rooms and large classrooms.
Bright, beautiful colours
Bright View is Sony’s unique processing technology that brightens images while maintaining rich colour – even in brightly-lit business and educational environments.
Enhanced viewing experience
Intelligent Settings with Ambiance uses a built-in light sensor to measure room brightness, automatically adjusting Bright View mode, colour gain and Reality Creation to suit your presentation environment.
Enjoy optimum pictures while saving energy
The VPL-PHZ61/51 makes sound business sense, helping you reduce running costs in corporate and educational environments. A new Auto Light Output feature works in conjunction with Ambiance, optimising image quality and maintaining high visibility while reducing power consumption.
4K 60P input support
Support for 4K 60P input signals makes life simpler when you’re using the VPL-PHZ61/51 in multi-screen set-ups with flat panel sub-screens. Just split the same 4K signal to drive all your display devices with no conversion needed. There’s also a high-performance image scaler that effortlessly converts 4K input signals to WUXGA resolution while achieving close to 4K image quality. Now optimised for 4K60P signals, Reality Creation is Sony’s unique picture enhancement feature that gives projected images even greater crispness and depth. There’s also support for devices with content protection such as 4K UHD players.
Smart, installation friendly design
Enjoy flexible installation options with a generous +55% vertical lens shift range, making it easy to achieve perfectly-proportioned pictures without long pole mounts or keystone correction when the projector’s ceiling mounted. We’ve also widened the throw ratio range, simplifying replacement of a previously installed projector without the hassle of re-positioning an existing ceiling mount.
Brighter for longer with less maintenance
There’s plenty of innovation inside the VPL-PHZ61/51 to keep pictures looking clear and bright over the projector’s operational lifetime with minimal maintenance – in any environment.
Designed with intelligence
Intelligent Settings simplifies installation and maximises performance based on usage, image detail, colour richness and fidelity, light output, cooling level and output noise. The Meeting/Classroom function controls laser output to keep brightness as high as possible for years of real-world use.
Keep dust out of the picture
The projector’s laser light source is sealed to prevent dust accumulation and eliminate reduced brightness. The dedicated cooling duct structure for the projector’s 3LCD panels is covered with an air filter to prevent dust from entering.
Hassle-free filter care
Focus on great-looking images instead of time-consuming maintenance. The new dust filtration system makes changing filters a thing of the past for general use in classrooms and meeting rooms.* For heavier use in dusty environments thre’s a new clogging sensor to advise when filter cleaning is needed. *Dust density < 0.03mg/m3 and operating time < 10,500 hours. (1,500 hours/year over 7 years.)
Settings for one projector can be copied to other projectors using a USB memory drive. This greatly simplifies installation and set-up of multiple projectors.
Auto Input Select
The Auto Input Select feature automatically selects an active signal input, so there’s no need to change input each time a device is connected to the projector.
Auto Power On
Connect the VPL-PHZ61/51 to a switched-on computer, and the projector turns on automatically without having to operate the power button.
