Sony Unveils Laser Projector for Large Display Applications
Ideal for a wide range of corporate, entertainment and simulation applications, the VPL-GTZ380 combines outstanding contrast, brightness, high dynamic range and resolution with a wide color gamut to offer an unmatched visual experience in any distance and lighting condition. The flagship projector provides installation flexibility and enables quiet operation by incorporating cutting-edge technology into a small form factor.
It can be used in both bright and dark environments. By adopting a new liquid crystal material for the panel, its light stability dramatically improves, enabling durability with 10,000 lumens brightness, offering increased versatility and flexibility in installation. Featuring a newly developed 0.74” Native 4K SXRD panel, it provides detailed and radiant imagery with a high 16000:1 contrast ratio*1 that delivers deep blacks.
The VPL-GTZ380’s new laser light source incorporates a red laser diode in addition to two different-wavelength blue laser diodes to enable a wide color gamut of 100% DCI-P3 without any loss of brightness. The new 4K SXRD model is equipped with a high-performance picture processor optimized for projection, “X1 Ultimate for projector,” which is based on the original X1 Ultimate processor used for Sony’s high-end line of BRAVIA TVs to enable enhanced picture quality. This includes new features such as Dynamic HDR Enhancer and Object based HDR Remaster to enhance dynamic range and achieve deeper blacks. The VPL-GTZ380 also supports HDR formats including HDR 10 and HLG for more natural color reproduction.
From a design perspective, the projector seamlessly integrates with a variety of installation environments as a result of a compact body profile and lightweight 51kg.
Additionally, the projector achieves 39dB for quiet operation due to the use of liquid SXRD panel cooling system and streamlined air flow design. Its form factor, quiet operation and easily stackable four corner mount design enables multi-projection in domes and for large screen exhibitions. Due to its high contrast and deep black levels, the projector minimizes banding, allowing for uniform blending.
Through an optional license, the model can also support 4K 120Hz and low transport delay, which are essential for displaying CG images for training simulators and large-screen displays of eSports events. The model has additional optional 3D and Night Vision Goggle (NVG) functions for use in VR research facilities and for specialized training.
The VPL-GTZ380 is scheduled for release in January of 2021.
