The new, versatile Sony VPL-GTZ380 professional laser projector for large-scale viewing will be available on the market from January 2021: 10.000 lumens, 16.000: 1 native contrast, large DCI-P3 color space and HDR support are its main features
With its 10.000 lumens, Sony’s new professional projector is the brightest of the SXRD models with native 4K signals. VPL-GTZ380 is designed for a wide range of applications in the Corporate, Entertainment and simulation fields, thanks in particular to its ability to combine contrast, brightness, dynamic range and high resolution with an extensive color space.
VPL-GTZ380 can be used in both bright and dark places. The new Liquid Crystal panel ensures a significant improvement in terms of luminous stability, while the 10.000 lumens of brightness make it an even more versatile and flexible product to install. Thanks to the native 0.74” 4K SXRD panel, the projector can reproduce detailed and bright images with a contrast ratio of 16.000: 1 which increases the depth of blacks.
The new light source integrates a red laser diode in addition to the two blue laser diodes of different wavelengths, for a color space that corresponds to 100% of DCI-P3 without loss in terms of brightness. HDR formats are also supported, including HDR 10 and HLG, for more natural color reproduction. Important detail, the high-performance X1 Ultimate image processor optimized specifically for projection, based on the processor installed in Sony’s high-end BRAVIA TV line.
To further enhance the VPL-GTZ380 model, new features such as Dynamic HDR Enhancer and Object-based HDR Remaster which improve the dynamic range and offer deeper blacks, increased installation flexibility, thanks to a very compact chassis (only 51 Kg weight), and particularly quiet operation (39 dB) thanks to liquid cooling and streamlined design of the air flow.
In addition, an optional license allows the Sony VPL-GTZ380 to also support 4K at 120 Hz with reduced signal delay, an important feature for viewing CG images in simulators or large-screen projections of eSport events. Finally, the model offers optional features for 3D glasses and night vision (NVG), ideal for VR research facilities and specialized training.
The VPL-GTZ380 projector will be available from January 2021.
