Sony Projector 21:9 Ratio Firmware Update

21:9 Aspect Ratio

The 21:9 Ultrawide Full HD aspect ratio at 2560 x 1080 input signal support opens doors to a new dimension of visual engagement. Whether it’s the latest business presentation, a video conferencing platform, or dynamic content sharing, this extended format provides greater immersion and versatility for users.

21:9 projection displays offer a new dimension of immersion and engagement across various applications, making it essential for those who seek to captivate, educate, and entertain. Projectors empower architects to showcase designs in detail and businesses to grab attention at trade shows. In live theaters and performances, projectors elevate visual effects, while libraries and museums use them for wide-format document displays and interactive exhibits. Going beyond, in upscale restaurants and interior design studios, these displays create more immersive and engaging environments.

Enhanced Communication

As the business landscape continually evolves, seamless communication and collaboration are paramount. Sony’s firmware update improves compatibility with today’s leading video collaboration platforms. With 21:9 aspect ratio support, users can now enjoy a wide, panoramic view of content, enhancing video conferences and presentations for participants. 

This firmware update expands upon Sony’s key projection differentiators, including Reality Creation, which enhances the overall sharpness, resolution, and quality of pictures, graphs, or text, and Ambiance, which measures the room’s brightness using an ambient light sensor and optimally calibrates additional visual settings. Together these technologies, combined with 21:9 aspect ratio, create even more realistic and immersive visual experiences that unlock new levels of collaboration.

The firmware update bringing 21:9 aspect ratio support is available now for the mid-range VPL-FHZ85 and VPL-FHZ80 interchangeable lens projectors and is planned to be available for the ultra-compact VPL-PHZ61 and VPL-PHZ51 fixed lens projectors at the end of December 2023.
