Product Info

The VPL-FH500L is a bright, HD quality projector designed to be installed in conference rooms, auditoriums and showrooms. With 7000 Lumens, the fh500l is extremely bright and can be used in bright areas to create a large image - imagine an auditorium with a 5m wide screen and the lights up for people working. To go with the high brightness, the FH500L has a high resolution of WUXGA too which will display full HD content without any quality loss.

Video and other media content will look fantastic and wow audiences - this projector could work well in a public place like a museum as well. 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. To add to this, the vertical and horizontal lens shift make it possible to mount in the most difficult places. With this range, it seems Sony have really thought about the design as well. With the projector being installed in new conference rooms and possible public places, aesthetics are important. 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. With multiple digital input in HDMI and DVI, along with the traditional VGA, the FH500L can connect to a variety of different devices old and new. The twin lamp system will also give you peace of mind, because if one fails then the other one will kick in. This also means that as you're only using one at a time, the lamp life is very long - up to 8,000 hours. A superb installation projector packed with features that make it cost friendly and easy to install. For more information please see the PDF link on the left hand side.

What Sony say about the VPL-FH500L

Ultra high brightness and low maintenance - great performance for any environment

The VPL-FH500L's outstanding portfolio of features allows it to offer class-leading projection performance even in the most challenging of environments. Its 7,000 Lumens Colour Light Output brightness, its zoom and its wide lens shift range, allow it to deliver the clearest image where other projectors would struggle - even in high ambient light.

Once installed, the VPL-FH500L has excellent image capabilities and a long lifespan that delivers low Total Cost of Ownership. Sony's BrightEra technology improves and maintains colour purity throughout the life of the system by protecting the LCD panels against harmful ultra violet light. Clever features such as dual auto-switching lamps, and synchronised lamp and filter replacement cycles, reduce maintenance costs and downtime.

Featuring the usual wide range of inputs, an external monitor connection for the presenter's convenience, and advanced projection capabilities such as side-by-side image projection and DICOM medical training, the VPL-FH500L is the projector of choice for venues that demand the highest quality in the most practical, flexible form.

  • 3LCD WUXGA BrightEra Panel Technology

    Sony's BrightEra Panel Technology gives more accurate colour rendition, higher brightness and longer lifespan for a lower Total Cost of Ownership.

  • Ultra High Resolution

    The VPL-FH500L's WUXGA (1920x1200) 16:10 format resolution delivers absolute best image quality.

  • Ultra High Brightness: 7,000 Lumens Colour Light Output

    With ultra high brightness of 7,000 Lumens Colour Light Output, the VPL-FH500L gives a very clear image in high ambient light, making it highly suitable for larger venues.

  • Wide Lens Shift Range: Vertical: +/-113%, Horizontal: +/- 63% (depending on optional lens)

    The VPL-FH500L's wide lens shift range means that the projector can be positioned closer to the ceiling, or horizontally offset to avoid ceiling obstacles.

  • Interchangeable Lenses

    The VPL-FH500L allows you to choose the characteristics of the projector's optics by selecting from a range compatible with previous models.

  • Twin lamp system

    A second lamp is built in to provide automatic back up. The two lamps can be alternately used.

  • Lamp/Filter Replacement Cycles Synchronised

    Synchronised lamp and filter replacement effectively halves the number of visits needed to maintain the projector in peak operating condition. (Filters are provided with replacement lamp.)

  • Side by Side Image Projection

    Side by side twin image gives you the ability to project from two inputs (RGB + any other Input) at the same time, making the projector ideal for applications like video conferencing and DICOM medical training.

  • DICOM GSDF Simulation

    The VPL-FH500L offers DICOM GSDF Simulation (HDMI with computer signals), which conforms to GSDF (Grayscale Standard Display Function) of medical standards for DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine).

  • Wide Range of Image Adjustments

    This wide range of image adjustments allows the projector to be installed in almost any location. Where equipment is being upgraded, installers are more likely to be able to use existing mounts. In new installations, they are more likely to be able to work around existing obstructions.

  • User Panel Alignment

    Pixel alignment shifts the entire image or desired range (H: 16 X V: 10 pixels) for complete colour correction.

  • Colour Matching

    The VPL-FH500L offers brightness and colour matching adjustment to the original image for complete image accuracy.

  • Lower Operating Power Consumption than Previous Models

    Lower operating power consumption helps reduce energy consumption and lowers running costs.

About Conference Room

Buying a conference room sized projector is a large investment so it is important to find the best projector to suit your specific requirements. Here is a quick guide to getting the best conference room projector.

Firstly you hare a large audience so depending on how they are seated really depends on the brightness of the projector you are going to need. For instance if there are 200 people in 5 rows of 40 or 200 people in 20 rows of 10, clearly under the second example the people at the back of 20 rows are going to find it harder to see the image if the screen is too small. So you have to decide on your image size. Here are some sensible image sizes for certain audiences

3m - up to 100 people      4m - up to 200 People   5m - up to 300 people

Now you know your image size then you have to consider how far back you need to place the projector. A general rule of thumb on a standard lens projector is working on the basis of twice the distance back of the image width, so for the examples above the conference room projector would be placed 6m/8m/10m. If you need to be either further back or closer then you would probably have to buy what is known as a body only projector and then choose the additional lens which would give you the right throw ratio. This is a more expensive option as the additional lenses tend to be anything from £600-£2000. So it does make sense to try and have a set up for your conference that gives you the most cost effective solution. We really do suggest that buying on-line without having purchased a high end projector before might be better to ring one of our sales experts who will be able to save you money.

Depending on what you are intending to display and the quality you require does mean that there are several choices of resolution. If you are showing a basic Powerpoint presentation or spreadsheets then the choice would be either XGA or the wider version of XGA known as WXGA. If you are showing video content or HD content then 1080p which are full HD is popular as the quality is very good but they do tend not to have high lumens basically limited to 4000L so it may well be that it makes sense to go to the next resolution WUXGA which have more lumens.

Brightness which is measured as lumens is more important for a conference room projector than a standard projector because they will need to be bright. Nothing less than 4000L will do but again this is a specialised requirement and you should ask for help.

We have found that the "5 Series" of Infocus offer probably the best value and other good conference room projector brands are Panasonic & NEC as they both have a large range to choose from. If you want the WUXGA resolution then Canon are the best choice but they a bit pricey for most budgets. At the bottom of each page there is a more detailed guide about what to look for on a projector.

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.
