Overview

See things in a new light with the world’s first 3LCD laser projector
The VPL-FHZ55 is the world’s first 3LCD laser projector, delivering game-changing performance and reliability in mission-critical installation applications.

It’s ideal for a wide range of installation needs, producing bright, detail-packed WUXGA images with a resolution that’s higher than Full HD. So your audience only sees big, beautiful pictures, not pixels.

The environmentally-friendly laser light source is teamed with 3LCD BrightEra™ technology by Sony. You’ll see the difference with superb image quality and 4000 lumen brightness, plus exceptional contrast and consistent colour stability.

What’s more, the laser light source typically is rated for a typical 20,000 hours operating life – far longer than the lamp in traditional projectors. Dramatically reduced maintenance requirements are complemented by a range of energy-saving feature, significantly driving down total lifetime ownership costs.

The VPL-FHZ55 fits smoothly into almost any environment – from academic institutions, corporate, medical and public sector organisations to visitor attractions and retail spaces. Seamlessly blend images from multiple projectors to create super-sized displays, or even project true, accurate images onto curved surfaces. Install the projector at any angle – even on its side or upside down. With the VPL-FHZ55, there are no limits to your creative freedom.

Features
