Projectors are starting to use lasers to generate light. What was once the realm of science fiction, or at least the nemesis of cats and Professor Hathaway, is now being used to create some of the best big-screen images possible.
Beyond picture quality, lasers last longer than traditional projector lamps, aren’t as fragile, and offer nearly instant on/off. With these benefits, lasers will probably be the future of front projection.
Projectors provide the biggest, most immersive images you can see. Sure, you can buy a 70-inch TV today, but projection screens in the home are usually 100 inches or more in size, and that much more amazing to experience in person. In theaters, the sheer size of the screen is one of the best reasons to pay for going to the movies. When I saw in one of the best theaters in the world, it blew me away. That image was powered by lasers, and lasers can make your big-screen experience better too.
Goodbye Xenon, hello Lazlo. As awesomely futuristic as they sound, laser projectors aren’t that much different from traditional projectors. With all projectors, something creates light, and that light is then manipulated to create the image on the screen. The only thing changes with laser projectors is what is creating the light.
In the purest form, red, green and blue lasers are “defocused” to fill an entire DLP, LCOS, or LCD chip. The lasers don’t scan the chip (or the screen). So, in fairness, “laser projector” is about as much of a misnomer as “LED TV.” Both terms refer to the of name the technology that creates the light — lasers and light-emitting diodes, respectively — not the technology that creates the image as a whole. “DLP projector” and “LCD TV” would be more accurate.
Lasers replace the UHP, Xenon, and other lamps found in current projectors. So even though that makes “laser projectors” a little less futuristic (more evolution than revolution), they’re still way cool, and offer lots of benefits.
Very high image quality with Sony’s advanced BrightEra 3LCD projection engine and Z-Phosphor laser light source: The Z-Phosphor laser light source is coupled with Sony’s acclaimed BrightEra 3LCD projection engine to ensure high 5000 lumen image brightness with vivid, natural colour reproduction.
Constant Brightness: Constant Bright maintains the same brightness throughout the 20,000 hours (at light output mode “Middle”) hours recommended life span.
Advanced picture refinement technologies: Picture quality is boosted by advanced processing featured on Sony’s home cinema projectors. Reality Creation uses a powerful pattern-matching database to optimise every pixel. Contrast Enhancer actively analyses and refines dark and light image areas for sparkling highlights and rich, deep blacks.
Crisp, detail-packed WUXGA resolution images: See fine detail in PC presentations, videos or multimedia signage with WUXGA (1920 x 1200) 16:10 resolution.
Up to 20,000 hours* operation with virtually no maintenance: The advanced laser light source offers up to 20,000 hours* operation without lamp exchange, reducing lifetime running costs compared with traditional projectors.
Hassle-free automatic filter cleaning: Focus on great-looking images instead of arduous maintenance tasks: new automated filter cleaning system removes dust every 100 hours.
Energy saving features: Reduce running costs even further with convenient energy-saving features: Picture Mute and Auto Dimming.
Save time with every presentation: Quick power On/Off dramatically cuts warm-up time after switch-on before you can start presenting at full brightness.
360° free-angle installation capability: Enjoy greater installation flexibility: position the projector freely at any angle – or its side or even upside down.
Supports HDBaseT: Simpler, more cost-effective installation and connectivity with digital transmission of HD video, audio and networking/control over a single Ethernet cable.
Quiet operation: Low fan noise ensures discreet, unobtrusive operation in quiet environments for academic and corporate use.
Slim, attractive blend-in design: The slim, stylish case design features a flat top surface that blends in discreetly when the projector is ceiling mounted.
Picture Mode: Picture Mode ensures great-looking pictures in any presentation conditions. Select Standard, Dynamic, or Brightness Priority mode for optimised image quality, with any source and in every room.
