Just Projectors review on the Sony VPL-FHZ57

Video and other media content will look fantastic and wow audiences - this projector could work well in public places as well. The WUXGA Resolution is higher than Full HD! The flexibility of installation is impressive, as you can purchase optional lenses to allow the projector to go really close, or really far away to still create a sensible size image. The powered lens shift makes it possible to mount in the most difficult places. Install the projector at any angle – even on its side or upside down. With 4100 Lumens, the VPL-FHZ57 is bright and can be used in bright areas to create a large image to a large audience with the lights on. The shape blends in with a ceiling tile nicely, and the cables actually go into the front so when you see the projector from behind (as most people would) then it looks very sleek and tidy. The LCD technology will give you realistic and true to life colours which are perfect to show off photographs. With multiple digital inputs in HDMI and DVI, along with the traditional VGA, this projector can connect to a variety of different devices old and new. For more information please see the PDF link on the left hand side.

As this is a high end unit, stock may take 2-5 days to deliver.

What Sony say about the VPL-FHZ57

Superb image quality plus low running costs, minimal maintenance, flexible installation and low fan noise

The VPL-FHZ57 laser projector is ideal for a wide range of business, education and entertainment applications. Teamed with our BrightEra 3LCD projection engine, the advanced Z-Phosphor laser light source ensures detail-packed WUXGA resolution images with a generous 4,100 lumens brightness and rich, stable colours. Building on the success of Sony’s acclaimed first-generation laser projectors, advanced picture refinement technologies now assure even greater clarity and realism with any input source.

The laser light source allows up to 20,000 hours of virtually zero maintenance operation without the worry of sudden lamp failures. Constant Brightness Mode maintains the same on-screen light levels throughout the laser source’s extra-long lifespan An automated filter system cuts the hassle of regular dust cleaning. Near-zero maintenance needs are complemented by a range of energy-saving features, driving down total lifetime ownership costs even further.

With a stylish blend-in design, tidy cable management and ultra-low fan noise, the VPL-FHZ57 fits beautifully into almost any environment – from academic institutions, corporate, medical training and public sector organisations to visitor attractions and retail spaces. Seamlessly blend images from multiple projectors to create super-sized displays, or project accurately proportioned images onto angled or curved surfaces. Mount the projector at any angle, even on its side or upside down. Set-up is refreshingly easy with a friendly installation menu.

This unique and highly efficient combination delivers exceptionally bright pictures  with excellent colour accuracy and stability.

Easily correct image geometry  for natural-looking projections – even on convex or concave surfaces. Corner and edge correction can be adjusted  easily with the supplied remote and on-screen menu.

Image quality is upscaled for a crisper, sharper picture, while dark and light areas are automatically adjusted without diminishing colour.

The input / output panel has been redesigned for these models to be located on the side of the projector. Cables are now neatly hidden within the panel cover to keep cables tidy.

Edge Blending for  super-sized displays - This built in feature allows images from multiple projectors to be joined seamlessly, creating one, stunning supersized projection.

Position the projectors freely, at any angle, on their side or even upside down. Install wherever you need them, close to ceilings, near a screen or even horizontally offset them.

Generous shift, zoom and throw lens adjustments give more flexibility for positioning the projectors where you need them. (Actual horizontal and vertical shift depends on lens used - optional lenses available).

Laser light source means there is no need to warm up or cool down any UHP lamps. The  projectors turn on and off virtually instantaneously with a push of the remote commander.

About Just Projectors

We provide advice on the phone listening to your requirements we are able to help you get the right one as we have trained staff . We have a network of installers to cover your area. On higher end models we can arrange a loan or demo. We think most people should buy HD resolution , they are so affordable now and you wouldn't buy a 5 year old laptop so why buy SVGA which is over 20 years old. Yes XGA & WXGA are ideal for simple presentations and education use but we have all been use to decent home TV's or high resolution phones or tables so why put a huge image on the wall/screen which is inferior. There are some great brands out there BenQ, Infocus, Epson and less known ones like EIKI or Vivitek. Yes you can buy the wrong one, this is why we still offer advice rather than just an add to cart website. We have a price promise, we see the models, we often put one against another and see which one is best. We only buy UK stock,which has higher warranty standards to ensure you get real value for money. We don't sell the cheap brands as the lumens isn't verified. Look at our name it tells you that we are committed to this product and we have a great reputation in the market place for price and customer service. We supply the UK but also in Ireland, we offer a 1-3 day service to Ireland.
