More incredible images

Don’t compromise on amazing images. Sony’s advanced BrightEra 3LCD projection engine delivers bright, detail-packed pictures with generous 5,000 lumens brightness and rich, stable colours. It’s the ideal way to present more fine detail in PC presentations, videos or multimedia signage.

Laser lasts longer

The powerful Z-Phosphor laser light source offers up to 20,000 hours* of virtually zero maintenance operation without the worry of sudden lamp failures – reducing lifetime running costs compared with traditional projector lamps. Constant Bright maintains steady light output levels throughout the laser’s rated lifespan.

Impressively refined pictures

Picture quality is boosted by advanced processing features like Reality Creation that uses a powerful pattern-matching database to optimise every pixel, enhancing crispness of on-screen images and text without adding digital picture noise. Contrast Enhancer actively analyses and refines dark and light image areas for sparkling highlights and rich, deep blacks.

Simpler maintenance, lower running costs

The projector’s long-lasting laser light source, complemented by an automated filter system, cuts the hassle of regular dust cleaning. Minimal maintenance needs are matched by a range of energy-saving features, significantly driving down total lifetime ownership costs.
