Sony VPL-FHZ55 Laser Projector

Combining a laser light source with a 3LCD optical system, the ground-breaking VPL-FHZ55 projector generates a powerful 4,000 lumens of color light output at WUXGA resolution. Using a blue laser as the projection light source to create a perfect white light (which is then sent through the 3LCD optical system) produces a constant, vibrant RGB color that has been out of reach from all other laser projectors until now. The resulting 4,000 lumens of brightness make this a excellent choice for numerous commercial applications.

20,000 hours* of 'lamp-free' projection

Because the VPL-FHZ55 projector uses Laser & 3LCD technology, a standard projection lamp is no longer necessary. The highly efficient laser light source will operate with virtually zero maintenance and much lower energy expenditure, reducing the total cost of ownership when compared to traditional lamp projectors.

Low Total Cost of Ownership

With the Sony VPL-FHZ55, there is no comparison when it comes to lowest total cost of ownership. Here's an example: Compared to a lamp-model projector with similar specifications, assuming the units are used 12 hours a day, 22 days a month, over a 5 year period - the Sony projector would not cost you one penny more. The comparison projector ,however, would have gone through several lamp replacements, with a high lumen lamp averaging around $500 each. And the Sony would still be under its 5 year warranty!

Five Years or 12,000 Hours Limited Product Warranty

The VPL-FHZ55 has a five (5) years or 12,000 hours Limited Product Warranty, whichever occurs first. It also has an On-Time-Support (OTS) Loaner Unit available during 1st year after product purchase.

  • Q:

    Sony VPL-FHZ55W Projector will last 20,000 hours without lamp. After 20,000 hours do you have to replace entire projector? Is there a replacement part so you can keep it running another 20,000 hours?

      The Sony VPLFHZ55W Laser Projector will go 20,000 hours on the light source. There is no option to replace the Laser or the Light Source. Once you reach the 20,000 hours the Projector will be done. Only Projectors with lamps that go about 2000 - 4000 hours have a lamp option. But this Projector does not have a lamp option. The post below is incorrect
