A bright and vibrant image

Grab their attention – and keep it. The projectors’ very high light output (12,000 lumens VPL-FHZ120L, 9,000 lumens VPL-FHZ90L) ensures presentations with extra presence. You’ll impress audiences in larger venues, from conference halls and lecture theatres to galleries, museums and visitor attractions.

Unforgettable images

Secure your competitive edge with visibly superior pictures – thanks to the combination of a newly developed 1-inch 3LCD panel and optical compensator with our unique Z-Phosphor Laser Light Source. It adds up to bright, beautiful images, bursting with fine detail and rich, sumptuous colours.

Even richer colours

The VPL-FHZ120L offers the ideal solution for auditoriums and conference halls, which require AV solutions for live performances and ceremonies. Additionally, the projector supports sRGB100% mode making it suitable for applications often found in exhibitions and museums which require precise colour reproduction.

Made for flexible installation

Don’t restrict your thinking. You’ll appreciate the flexibility of industry-leading lens shift adjustment range and a wide choice of interchangeable lenses – giving more options to install the projector in any space, including classrooms and halls with high ceilings.

With normal lens shift

The projector requires a mounting bracket, which obscures the audience’s view.

With wide lens shift

Lens shift gives greater installation flexibility, even in rooms with high ceilings.

Deliver your message

Make sure your audience is always in the picture. Directly present HTML content – like corporate logos, images or information notices – over the network or from removable USB memory.

Beautifully consistent

Auto calibration maintains precise colour consistency over extended operating periods. It’s especially valuable for environments like museums and galleries where you can’t afford to compromise the artist’s original vision.

Don’t keep them waiting

Quick start-up saves time with every presentation. Switch on the VPL-FHZ120L and VPL-FHZ90L and you’re ready to start projecting at full brightness in moments. So you won’t keep a room full of students waiting to see your point.

Instant recall

Memorise and instantly recall up to six projector settings for image size, position and aspect ratio, saving valuable time for different environments and applications.

(Requires optional VPLL-Z4111 lens)

Get closer to reality

Sony’s advanced Reality Creation technology analyses the input signal right down to the pixel level. Powerful pattern matching enhances crispness of on-screen images and text without adding digital picture noise.

Easy integration

Sony’s Protocol Emulation feature allows one to control Sony projectors using other manufacturer’s RS232C control protocols. This feature allows integrators to replace other manufacturer’s projector with Sony’s, without re-programming the AV system. Consult your Sony representative for the details.
