Product Description

Sony VPL-FH36 WUXGA LCD Projector

The VPL-FH36 is designed to fit smoothly into almost any environment where a high-quality projector is required. Its brightness, zoom and throw range, coupled with its wide lens shift range, mean it can perform where other projectors would struggle - even in high ambient light.

Once installed, the VPL-FH36 has excellent image capabilities and a long lifespan that delivers low Total Cost of Ownership.

Sony's BrightEra technology improves and maintains color purity throughout the life of the system by protecting the LCD panels against harmful ultra violet light. Clever features such as synchronized lamp and filter replacement cycles reduce costs and downtime.

Featuring the usual wide range of features, the VPL-FH36 can also edge blend (multiple projectors with seamless connection) and warping projection for retail and corporate signage applications.

  • 3 LCD WUXGA BrightEra Panel Technology
    Sony's BrightEra Panel Technology gives more accurate colour rendition, higher brightness and longer lifespan for a lower Total Cost of Ownership.
  • Ultra High Resolution
    The VPL-FH36's WUXGA (1920x1200) 16:10 format resolution delivers absolute best image quality.
  • Very High Brightness: 5,200 Lumens Colour Light Output
    With very high brightness of 5,200 Lumens Colour Light Output, the VPL-FH36 gives a clearer image in high ambient light, making it highly suitable for larger venues.
  • Wide Zoom Range (x1.6) and Throw Ratio (1.4 to 2.3) as standard
    The standard lens has a wide zoom capability and throw ratio, offering more flexibility over the positioning of the projector, which can be installed closer to or further away from the screen
  • Wide Lens Shift Range: Vertical: +60%, Horizontal: +/- 32%
    The VPL-FH36's wide lens shift range means that the projector can be positioned closer to the ceiling, or horizontally offset to avoid ceiling obstacles.
  • Long Lamp Replacement Time: 2,500-3,500 hours (High/Std)
    Longer lamp replacement time means fewer visits by maintenance personnel and lower Total Cost of Ownership.
  • Lamp/Filter Replacement Cycles Synchronised
    Synchronised lamp and filter replacement effectively halves the number of visits needed to maintain the projector in peak operating condition.
  • Interchangeable Lenses: Z1024, Z1032
    The VPL-FH36 allows you to choose different lenses for increased flexibility.
  • Edge Blend
    Multiple VPL-FH36 projectors have the ability to project a single seamless image onto a screen (wall) creating an exciting visual event, or retail or corporate signage application.
  • Warping Projection
    Warping projection allows the customer to adjust the corners and sides of a VPL-FH36 projected image to any convex or concave screen set up or wall for dynamic signage displays.
  • Side by Side Image Projection
    Side by side twin image gives you the ability to project from two inputs (RGB + any other Input) at the same time, making the projector ideal for applications like video conferencing and DICOM medical training.
  • DICOM GSDF Simulation
    The VPL-FH36 offers DICOM GSDF Simulation (HDMI with computer signals), which conforms to GSDF (Grayscale Standard Display Function) of medical standards for DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine).
  • Wide Range of Image Adjustments
    This wide range of image adjustments allows the projector to be installed in almost any location. Where equipment is being upgraded, installers are more likely to be able to use existing mounts. In new installations, they are more likely to be able to work around existing obstructions.
  • User Panel Alignment
    Pixel alignment shifts the entire image or desired range (H: 16 X V: 10 pixels) for complete colour correction.
  • Colour Matching
    The VPL-FH36 offers brightness and colour matching adjustment to the original image for complete image accuracy.
  • Lower Operating Power Consumption than Previous Models
    Lower operating power consumption helps reduce energy consumption and lowers running costs.
