VPL-PHZ12 Laser Projector

With 5,000 lumens brightness, excellent picture quality and attractive running costs, this stylish 3LCD laser projector is equally at home in academic and corporate environments.

The Sony PHZ12 delivers impressive performance for a 5,000-lumen, laser-based projector aimed primarily at business and education use—a statement that applies both to its brightness and to its image quality for both presentations and video or film. 

Going well beyond the sharp focus and vibrant color in graphics needed for presentations, the PHZ12 handles video and film well enough for extended viewing, whether for a full length movie, a night of TV, or a football game. So in addition to being an impressive choice for conference rooms, boardrooms, and classrooms, it's also a strong contender for applications like museum exhibits, sports bars, and home use in ambient light. And its support for nearly maintenance-free, 24/7 operation and 360-degree orientation enhances its usability for signage and similar displays. It is, in short, an excellent choice for a range of applications and a solid value at $2,499.
