An interview from the 2015 InfoComm Show in Orlando, Florida with Sander Phipps of Sony Electronics. Sony Electronics is a leading provider of audio/video electronics and information technology products for the consumer and professional markets. In this interview Sander talks with us about their Z-Phosphor technology projectors, as well as their new 4K Projectors.

The VPL-FHZ60 & VPL-FHZ65 are Sony's next generation of their very succesful Z-Phosphor projector illumination technology. With a brightness of 5000 & 6000 lumens and 10,000 to 1 contrast ratio the Z60 & Z65 offer high perfomace in demanding applications. Both models employ Sony's latest in image processing technology ensuring outstanding image quality. With Z-phosphor technology and a self cleaning filter these projectors offer a peace of mind, because they need no maintenance for 20,000 hours. The VPl-FHZ60 comes with a powered zoom lens and with 4 other option lenses to cover a wide range of installation needs. Both the Z60 & Z65 offer a large lens shift range ensuring installations go smoothly. These projectors have a full set of input connections including HDMI, DVI and analog RGB with both an analog and digital monitor out.

The VPL-GTZ270 is designed to create an immersive reality viewing experience in the entertainment market, with image enhancement functions including “Reality Creation” upscaling and compatibility with High Dynamic Range (HDR) content, giving users the ability to view the entire range of an image accurately and clearly. A wide color space covers the full DCI range and simulates the new ITU-R BT2020 color gamut.

The VPL-GTZ280 uses high-speed motion functions and new high-speed 4K 120Hz signal processing capability for 4K3D 60Hz left eye/right eye and reducing blur in fast motion scenes, in addition to smear and transport delay reduction, infrared light output for night vision stimulation and vibration resistance.

Both 5,000 lumen models have native SXRDTM 4K (4096×2160) resolution, and join Sony’s VPL-GTZ1 model to create a family of versatile 4K laser light source projectors designed for a range of B2B and commercial applications. Both can also operate in 4K 3D mode.

Like all Sony laser projectors, the VPL-GTZ270 and the VPL-GTZ280 are designed to deliver up to 20,000 hours of operation with virtually zero maintenance (up to 40,000 hours in low brightness mode) without the need for a lamp exchange, translating to a substantial savings in time and money and reducing the costs normally associated with bulb replacement. This also means staff can avoid the risk of climbing scaffolding and ladders to perform maintenance on lamps and filters.

Constant brightness mode and periodic auto calibration further contribute to longer life operation. The projectors’ SXRD panel also creates a deep black image with reduced white band visibility for multi-projection blending.

Both models have sealed optics for dust-resistance in high-traffic areas, and run quiet with operational noise of less than 35dB. The new projectors offer flexible installation options with complete tilt angle free capabilities including clockwise or counterclockwise, portrait or landscape orientation, forward or back.
