The VPL-PHZ61has 6,400 lumens and the VPL-PHZ51 has 5,300. Throughout the press release, as well as on the projectors’ webpages, it appears that the intended use cases lie in conference rooms and classrooms.
“Many of our customers struggle to find display solutions that provide both exceptional high brightness and sophisticated features that can enhance their content and overall user experience,” said Rich Ventura, Vice President of B2B, Sony Electronics, in a press release. “We don’t want our customers to compromise on any of these asks, which is why we’ve built upon our existing legacy in developing feature-rich laser projectors, to provide compact and advanced projectors to the market. These projectors really are world-class in their technology, quality, and design.” Along with a number of other features, both projector models are planned to launch later in the fall season.
