More flexibility for fuss-free installation

Enjoy flexible installation options with a generous +55% vertical lens shift range, making it easy to achieve perfectly proportioned pictures without long pole mounts or keystone correction when the projector's ceiling mounted. We've also widened the throw ratio range, simplifying replacement of a previously installed projector without the hassle of re-positioning an existing ceiling mount.

Native 4K 30P input support

Support for 4K 30P input signals makes life simpler when you're using the VPL-PHZ60/50 in multi-screen set-ups with other devices like flat panel sub-screens: just split the same 4K signal to drive all your displays with no conversion needed. There's also a high-performance image scaler that effortlessly converts 4K input signals to project in Full HD while maintaining pristine picture quality.
