Sony Professional’s VPL-GTZ380 Laser 10,000 Lumen 4K SXRD Projector

Thursday, January 14th, 2021

Are you looking for a projector to impress the audience at a corporate event, entertainment gathering, or trade show?

One of the first companies to produce professional-grade projectors capable of delivering native 4K (4096 x 2160) resolution, Sony’s latest projector is sure to impress the masses with its unmatched richness, color, and detail.
The Sony VPL-GTZ380 will be released later this month (January 2021). If you’ve enjoyed using 4K projectors in the past, prepare to be blown away by Sony’s 10,000-lumen model.

Flexibility for setting and scale

Unlike other projectors that use upscaling or pixel-shifting tricks to produce a 4K image, the VPL-GTZ380 faithfully displays native 4K resolution with no digital upscaling or pixel-shifting.

As a result, even the tiniest details are astonishingly crisp and clear even when your audience is relatively close to the screen in environments like corporate showrooms and lobbies.

The VPL-GTZ380 weighs only 112.4 lbs, which is relatively light when compared to other professional projectors. Due to the adoption of the small-sized panel, it’s easy to incorporate this projector in a variety of installation environments like large exhibitions, gallery spaces, and planetarium domes.

Sony’s VPL-GTZ380 features a four corner mount design ideal for multiple projection installations or when multiple projector images are edge-blended to create a super-sized picture. In fact, with Sony’s unique SXRD technology and ultra-deep black levels, the visibility of intrusive banding when multiple images are blended is significantly reduced.

Colorful enough for VR

In just a few short years, Sony’s SXRD lineup of 4K projectors has become the industry standard. These projectors can now be found at influential customer sites worldwide, such as entertainment venues, corporations, museums, expos, and exhibitions.

Sony’s newest projector incorporates a red laser diode in addition to two different-wavelength blue laser diodes. As a result, the VPL-GTZ380 achieves the full DCI-P3 color gamut — 1.35 times wider than the sRGB achieved by other projectors without any loss of brightness. Other high-end models may use a built-in color filter, but the VPL-GTZ380 uses an additional red diode, dramatically expanding the color volume without losing brightness from a color filter. The color accuracy of Sony’s latest line of projectors makes them a compelling choice for art galleries, museums, or anywhere you want a clear, rich picture.

In fact, according to pro.sony, with its industrial design and visualization applications, the dual 4K 60Hz 3D signals and the latest graphics processing technology to display up to 4K 120 Hz RGB 4:4:4 10-bit images with just two display port cables. You can also use the additional infrared LED, which outputs IR light for night-time pilot training and rescue simulations with night-vision goggles.

No lamp replacements for 20,000 hours

The VPL-GTZ380 uses a Z-Phosphor laser light source, which allows you to enjoy clear 4K pictures at optimal brightness for up to 20,000 uninterrupted hours. That’s over 833 days of no maintenance!

Speaking of no maintenance, if you’re looking for a professional projector for your business or an upcoming event, there is no better option than renting. When you rent, you get unmatched customer service, free advice, product recommendations, technical support, and more! And when you rent, you’ll always have the latest devices at your disposal without having to worry about your equipment depreciating when a new device comes out.

Edge up on the competition

Cutting edge Sony imaging technologies allow the VPL-GTZ380 to reproduce high-brightness images with stunning richness, color, and detail in a remarkably compact chassis for the duties it performs.

Whether you’re organizing a corporate event, showroom, art or museum gallery, simulation, or training class, the VPL-GTZ380 is sure to transform your environment with stunning quality and realism.

Sony’s latest professional projector certainly has a leg up on the competition at this point in the year. Still, we are sure to see competitors from Epson, Panasonic, Digital Projection, LG, and even BenQ.

3M Debuts New Streaming Projector Powered by Roku

Thursday, November 29th, 2012


Content streaming is becoming the next big thing in digital entertainment. More and more people are digitally downloading their content and streaming it to their televisions, smartphones and other electronic devices. Projector manufacturer 3M has recognized this and created the Streaming Projector, which merges the incredible picture size and quality you get from a projector with the streaming content that Roku is known for.

The projector itself isn’t very big, which keeps it in line with most technology these days. It is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and only weighs about one pound, making it easily transportable. In addition to that, the projector is capable of projecting an image of up to 120″ diagonally with a resolution of 800 x 480, which isn’t the best that can be offered, especially if you are serious about HD content, though it is respectable considering the size of the projector as a whole.

Adding to the convenience of the device, this projector is also battery powered and should last around 2 hours and 45 minutes per charge, meaning it should last you long enough to watch an entire movie. But if you are watching a movie near an AC power outlet then losing power won’t even be an issue. Just make sure you bring the adapter cable along if you are planning on having a movie marathon.

Integration comes through HDMI, meaning you can gain access to all of Roku’s content, including Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon and Crackle. You can also connect this projector to an Xbox 360, PS3 or any other HDMI-compatible device. Roku also gives you access to over 600 channels, so you will never be at a loss for content.

Internet connection can be accessed via WiFi while a small remote is also included, allowing you to control your projector comfortably from wherever you are sitting. The projector also comes with small, built-in speakers as well as audio out for hooking up additional sound systems. You can pre-order the projector right now at Amazon for $299 with the projector actually shipping on October 22, 2012.

Sony’s New VPL-HW50ES HD 3D Projector

Friday, November 23rd, 2012


Sony has just announced the launch of the new full HD 3D home cinema projector known as the VPL-HW50ES. This new home cinema projector has been designed around Sony’s “Reality Creation” technology and, according to the company, has a high brightness of up to 1,700 lumens. In addition to that, Sony also clarified that the high brightness level was achieved by improving the efficiency of the built-in lamp as well as the optical block optimization.

The new VPL-HW50ES comes with two modes, a Bright Cinema mode and a Bright TV mode. It is probable that when you operate the device in one of these two modes there is a 30% improvement to the overall brightness of the picture compared to the previously released models from Sony. One major point worth mentioning is that Sony was also a ble to achieve these brightness levels without compromising on the color reproduction, something that other developers have distress with.

The VPL-HW50ES model will also come with a draw honor ratio of 100,000:1 and also comes with a draw honor enhancer that is designed to analyze each scene and then optimize the draw a honor in real-time. The enhancer is capable of adjusting for dark and bright parts of the image by itself while some functional upgrades, like a 3D sync transmitter, wider lens and noise reduction, show the clear improvements this HD model has made over its predecessors. In addition to that, this projector also has a vertical lens shift in the range of +/-71% and a noise level reduced to 21dB.

This appears to be a pretty excellent HD projector and one that is perfectly suited for home entertainment. Sony is known for making top-of-the-line home entertainment projectors and this one appears to be up there with the best of Sony’s other offerings. The fact that it offers full 1080p HD along with full 3D is something that most home entertainment junkies will eat right up. You can buy this projector right now from Sony’s website and choose from one of two colors, white or black.

Tiny Instragram Projector Created on Kickstarter

Wednesday, November 21st, 2012

Projecteo Tiny Instagram Projector
 
A new, extremely tiny projector is looking to bring back the glory days of sharing all of your favorite pictures with friends and family via slideshow. This device, known as Projecteo, was funded within 24 hours of life launched on Kickstarter. The device uses 35mm slide film so you can project your favorite Instagram photos for the world to see.

Even though this device isn’t the first of its kind, it certainly is the quaintest and the most easily transportable. The device is literally no larger than a Gigapet while the retro spectacle style seems to perfectly compliment the hipster style of Instragram.

The Projecteo was inspired by the “magical qualities” of the metaphors produced by ancient Rollei projectors and uses a powerful LED combined with a lens and focusing mechanism in order to project “excellent quality” metaphors up to 2.5-feet wide in a pitch black room. It goes without saying that the extremely small size and LED limitations mean that this device may have problems in rooms with ambient light.

The Projecteo takes wheels of 35mm slide film that are specially produced to control nine full color Instagram metaphors on each frame. In addition to that, a compatible iPhone app is used to select the metaphors from Instagram and arrange them in the circular cutter and placed in a plastic wheel that slots into the projector. Additional photo wheels are available, though you have to order them separately.

Using the device is also said to be very austere. All you have to do, allegedly, is turn the device on, twist the lens barrel to focus and spin the wheel to change the image. You can still fund the project on Kickstarter. A $25 pledge will get you the Projecteo, which is probable to ship in either December or January. A $40 pledge will grant you a Projecteo in Rollei P35 projector colors while a $350 pledge will allow you to work with designers to make a one-off color combination. Finally, there is a $5,000 pledge, which could also get you one of three gold-plated devices.
