Why Sony's 3LCD Laser Light Source Projector?

True Laser Light Engine

Sony's Z-Phosphor 3LCD Laser Light Source projectors incorporate a true laser light engine and achieve up to 7,000 lm exceptional Color Light Output. Sony's unique light engine uses a blue laser as its light source, which excites a phosphorous material that in turn creates full spectrum light. The light is delivered to a 3LCD optical system which results in constant, vibrant RGB color.


Up to 20,000 Hours Virtually Maintenance Free Operation

Thanks to laser light source technology, a long life LCD panel, and an advanced filter system, Sony's laser projector offers up to 20,000* hours of virtually maintenance free operation. Reduced maintenance requirements and a range of energy-saving features reduce total lifetime ownership costs compared to conventional UHP projectors.


     With Auto Light Dimming feature enabled for the VPL-FHZ55. Actual hours may vary depending on usage environment.


Eco-Friendly Design

The pursuit of a more environmentally conscious projector led Sony to introduce the world's first 3LCD projector incorporating a laser light source. The projector uses fewer resources by eliminating the need for replacement lamps, improves energy efficiency, and contains no mercury, without compromising on vibrant colors and brightness.


High Color Light Output - High Image Quality

Combining a laser light source with Sony's BrightEra 3LCD engine creates natural color and exceptional brightness, at WUXGA (1920 x 1200) or WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution. The system uses three micro displays with full-time simultaneous color, red plus green plus blue. There are no color breaking or rainbow effects on high-contrast images. The colors are uncommonly natural and bright.


Advanced Integration Capabilities

Sony's laser light source technology affords advanced integration features including: constant brightness mode which maintains brightness over the course of time at a reduced light output, installation tilt-angle free design, wide range lens shift, built-in edge blending and geometric correction, near-instant power ON/OFF features, wide selection of optional lenses, and much, much more.
