Overview

Ultra high brightness and low maintenance - great performance for any environment
The VPL-FH500L's outstanding portfolio of features allows it to offer class-leading projection performance even in the most challenging of environments. Its 7,000 Lumens Colour Light Output brightness, its zoom and its wide lens shift range, allow it to deliver the clearest image where other projectors would struggle - even in high ambient light.

Once installed, the VPL-FH500L has excellent image capabilities and a long lifespan that delivers low Total Cost of Ownership. Sony's BrightEra technology improves and maintains colour purity throughout the life of the system by protecting the LCD panels against harmful ultra violet light. Clever features such as dual auto-switching lamps, and synchronised lamp and filter replacement cycles, reduce maintenance costs and downtime.

Featuring the usual wide range of inputs, an external monitor connection for the presenter's convenience, and advanced projection capabilities such as side-by-side image projection and DICOM medical training, the VPL-FH500L is the projector of choice for venues that demand the highest quality in the most practical, flexible form.

Features

3LCD WUXGA BrightEra Panel Technology
Sony's BrightEra Panel Technology gives more accurate colour rendition, higher brightness and longer lifespan for a lower Total Cost of Ownership.
Ultra High Resolution
The VPL-FH500L's WUXGA (1920x1200) 16:10 format resolution delivers absolute best image quality.
Ultra High Brightness: 7,000 Lumens Colour Light Output
With ultra high brightness of 7,000 Lumens Colour Light Output, the VPL-FH500L gives a very clear image in high ambient light, making it highly suitable for larger venues.
Wide Lens Shift Range: Vertical: +/-113%, Horizontal: +/- 63% (depending on optional lens)
The VPL-FH500L's wide lens shift range means that the projector can be positioned closer to the ceiling, or horizontally offset to avoid ceiling obstacles.
Interchangeable Lenses
The VPL-FH500L allows you to choose the characteristics of the projector's optics by selecting from a range compatible with previous models.
Twin lamp system
A second lamp is built in to provide automatic back up. The two lamps can be alternately used.
Lamp/Filter Replacement Cycles Synchronised
Synchronised lamp and filter replacement effectively halves the number of visits needed to maintain the projector in peak operating condition. (Filters are provided with replacement lamp.)
Side by Side Image Projection
Side by side twin image gives you the ability to project from two inputs (RGB + any other Input) at the same time, making the projector ideal for applications like video conferencing and DICOM medical training.
DICOM GSDF Simulation
The VPL-FH500L offers DICOM GSDF Simulation (HDMI with computer signals), which conforms to GSDF (Grayscale Standard Display Function) of medical standards for DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine).
Wide Range of Image Adjustments
This wide range of image adjustments allows the projector to be installed in almost any location. Where equipment is being upgraded, installers are more likely to be able to use existing mounts. In new installations, they are more likely to be able to work around existing obstructions.
User Panel Alignment
Pixel alignment shifts the entire image or desired range (H: 16 X V: 10 pixels) for complete colour correction.
Colour Matching
The VPL-FH500L offers brightness and colour matching adjustment to the original image for complete image accuracy.
Lower Operating Power Consumption than Previous Models
Lower operating power consumption helps reduce energy consumption and lowers running costs.
