What's included in the box
The VPL-FHZ55 is the World's first lamp-less projector using 3LCD imaging technology to achieve 4,000 lumens of color light output at WUXGA resolution (1920 x 1200). It delivers a range of capabilities which eliminates many of the issues associated with conventional lamp-based projection. The projector packs all the benefits of Vivid color 3LCD, long life Laser Light Source and Advanced Integration features.

Multiple Light Output Mode
The VPL-FHZ55 offers several user-selectable light output modes and energy saving features, to maximize the benefit of the unique optical system.
High mode: A mode which outputs 4,000 lumens
Standard mode: A mode which outputs 3,000 lumens with less power consumption than High mode
Auto mode: This varies brightness according to the needs of each scene, going darker when the picture goes darker, for example. The system dynamically adjusts color balance to maintain picture quality.
Custom mode: This allows users to set the brightness level as preferred, with a maximum light output of 4,000 lumens
Constant brightness mode: This maintains the light output throughout the expected life by driving the projector at reduced output. It is suitable for applications where visual consistency is required, whether in digital signage or museums or even classrooms.
Auto light dimming: In the event the projector detects static signal input for 10 seconds, the light output gradually reduces by approximately 15%. Then, after user preset time of 5, 10, 15 or 20 minutes with the static signal kept fed, second stage of light dimming kicks in and reduces light output down to 5% of the original brightness.
Near Instantaneous Power On/Off
The VPL-FHZ55 only requires 6 seconds for the brightness to ramp up after turning on. There is also a "quick reboot" mode available which allows users to reboot the projector in just 1 second, during user preset time of 10 minutes or 30 minutes after turning off the projector. This is a useful feature for schools where they have presentation intervals between classes.
Advanced Lens System
With the 1.6x wide zoom standard lens, it's possible to keep the same mount position if upgrading from an older model. A centered lens makes it easy to calculate symmetric installation. Vertical + 60%, Horizontal +/-32% optical lens shift saves time for fine adjustment of image position.
The VPLL-Z2009 optional lens is available with a 0.85 – 1.0:1 throw ratio, for short throw projection and easy image adjustment with its 1.2x zoom. Lens shift range is Vertical +50%, Horizontal +/-24% for the VPLL-Z2009 lens.
360° Tilt Angle Free Design
Conventional high-pressure mercury cooling systems only function across a limited range of installation angles. Sony's True Laser System gives you complete freedom of tilt angle. You can roll the projector 360° clockwise or counterclockwise, including portrait or landscape orientation. And you can "pitch" the projector 360° forward or back.
Edge Blending / Color Matching
This built-in feature enables the installation of multiple projectors to create one large seamless and uniformed image. Create stunning super-size displays for retail, corporate and live event applications.
Project onto non-flat surfaces with Image Warping
Easily correct image geometry for natural-looking projections - even on convex or concave surfaces. Corner and edge correction can be easily adjusted with the supplied remote and on-screen menu.
Picture by Picture
This feature allows 2 inputs to be displayed in equally sized images on the screen at one time. Ideal for VTC and other multi source applications.
Picture Mute without Light Leakage
Touch a button on the projector remote and the picture is muted instantly, without light leakage. Another touch and the projector's instantly powered back up to resume your presentation.
Hg (Mercury) Free Design
Sony'sTrue Laser Light System is mercury free, which is much better for the environment.
