At the Integrated Systems Europe event, better known as ISE 2013, Sony unveiled its first projector with Laser Light Source Technology, a WUXGA installation projector. The projector is modeled after a couple of popular units in Sony's F-series, and it boasts several features, including up to 20,000 maintenance-free hours of use.
This device holds the title of world's first 4,000 lumens, 3LCD laster 1920 x 1200 resolution projector. It is the brightest in its market, and is designed with both schools and corporate businesses in mind. The device is designed so that it can be used for extended time spans, and so that it has a long maintenance-free duration, which is influenced by its environment and setup.
The device's exceptional brightness is the result of lasers instead of LEDs, which most projectors in its class use. The light produced by the lasers passes through a 3LCD engine, with the resulting picture being brighter than your average projector picture, with stable colors and very crisp contrast ratios.
The projector's design is based on the VPL-FH31 and the VPL-FH36 model projectors. According to Sony's announcement, the device is designed so that it can be easily implemented into a variety of different environments, whether its a classroom or a board room or somewhere else altogether. It has a white finish so that it blends into its environment.
The device is slated for launch this summer.
