Sony Electronics, a subsidiary of Sony Corporation, has released two compact 3LCD Laser projectors on 18th October 2021.

The two projectors are VPL-FHZ85 and VPL-FHZ80.

Sony Electronics’ VPL-FHZ85 and VPL-FHZ80

Both of the two projectors feature high brightness, which is ideal for large classrooms, meeting rooms, auditoriums, exhibitions, and sports simulators.


The VPL-FHZ85 is rated at 7,300 lumens while the VPL-FHZ80 is rated at 6,000 lumens, delivering a clear quality image even during daytime.

Image Quality

The two new projectors use three 0.76-inch LCD panels and project a diagonal screen size from 40 inches to 600 inches with a native resolution of 1920×1200 (WUXGA). But they are compatible with signals of UHD 4K.

Reality Text Feature 

The two projectors have incorporated Sony’s Reality Creation real-time signal processing, mapping, and analysis technology, which can produce crisp and clear pictures, for effective presentation and display.

The projectors’ new Reality Text feature improves text-based presentation materials by providing clearer letters and lines with enhanced legibility.

Advanced Intelligent Settings

The two new projectors feature advanced Intelligent Settings, offering optimization based on usage environment. The addition of customized Bright View functionality enables colors to accurately maintain their contrast and vivacity, even in brightly lit rooms.

The new Ambiance feature automatically measures the room’s brightness using an ambient light sensor and further calibrates the Bright View, color gain, and Reality Creation settings accordingly.  They also offer an automated filter cleaning system and an efficient cooling system to ensure long-term, reliable, and low-maintenance operation.

Generous lens shift range

The class-leading vertical +70% lens shift adjustment range offers more installation freedom. A range of lens options suits virtually any room size and throw requirements; the quick-release bayonet simplifies lens exchange.

Other Features

The two models adapt to diverse installation and usage environments, as well as mounting configurations. Their installation flexibility is further realized through thoughtful additions like a USB power supply for enabling wireless presentations, auto power on capabilities, auto input selection, and a data cloning feature that allows a user to copy a projector’s settings onto a USB drive for easy replication to additional projectors.

The VPL-FHZ85 and VPL-FHZ80 are planned to be available in January 2022 with SRP €5,600 and €4,790 respectively.
