The What: Sony's new VPL-GTZ270 specially designed for entertainment use including planetariums, theme parks, museums and retail, and the VPL- GTZ280 for is designed for simulation, visualization, and training.

The What Else: Both 5,000 lumen models have native SXRD 4K (4096x2160) resolution, and join Sony’s VPL-GTZ1 model to create a family of versatile 4K laser light source projectors designed for a range of B2B and commercial applications. Both can also operate in 4K 3D mode.

Like all Sony laser projectors, the VPL-GTZ270 and the VPL-GTZ280 are designed to deliver up to 20,000 hours of operation with virtually zero maintenance (up to 40,000 hours in low brightness mode) without the need for a lamp exchange.

Constant brightness mode and periodic auto calibration further contribute to longer life operation. The projectors’ SXRD panel also creates a deep black image with reduced white band visibility for multi-projection blending.

The Bottom Line: Both models have sealed optics for dust-resistance in high-traffic areas, and run quiet with operational noise of less than 35 dB. The new projectors offer flexible installation options with complete tilt angle free capabilities including clockwise or counterclockwise, portrait or landscape orientation, forward or back.
