Sony sees bright future at Integrate 2017
Exhibits wide range of new projectors, displays and applications

Sydney, 23 August 2017 – At this year’s Integrate show Sony will be demonstrating its widest range of projectors, displays and applications for the professional, home theatre, education and commercial markets to date.

Kicking off proceedings will be a demonstration of Sony’s CLED display which will redefines the giant display landscape. With amazing contrast, saturated colour, brilliant white and deep black Sony’s CLED is a giant display that delivers it all. It’s the ideal choice for life-size displays in architectural and automotive design and it’s the ultimate display for boardrooms, theme parks, museums, broadcast studios, corporate lobbies, real estate showrooms and medical education. The display’s light source is Sony’s innovative Crystal LED technology, which combines ultrafine LEDs and unique surface mounting to deliver a visual experience beyond any conventional LED array.

Alongside the CLED area is Sony’s latest Ultra-Short Throw native 4K HDR Home Theatre Projector the VPL-VZ1000ES. Part of a major expansion of Sony’s ultra short throw home theatre line up the VPL-VZ1000ES is designed to integrate easily into people’s homes. This latest innovative laser light source projector is High Dynamic Range (HDR) compatible with native 4K resolution and can be positioned as little as six inches away from the wall, yet command the room with a 254cm (100 inch) image, measured diagonally in 16:9. When powered off, the compact and elegant VPL-VZ1000ES virtually disappears into the décor. With the VPL-VZ1000ES it is now possible to have an immersive viewing experience for a wide range of residential applications, from a home theatre to a living room or bedroom, no matter what the design or layout of your home is.

Another Sony projector making the news recently and which will be at the show is the VPL-PHZ10. Part of Sony’s expanding line of Z-Phosphor™ laser light source projectors this new model is aimed at making laser technology more cost-effective for the installation market. Designed for applications, including classrooms and meeting rooms, the new VPL-PHZ10 (WUXGA) and brings the benefits of laser technology — image quality, colour reproduction and virtually zero-maintenance — to customers who previously may have only been able to experience lamp-based projection. The new fixed wide zoom lens VPL-PHZ10 provides users with a lower-cost, high-quality option for installing laser projections in rooms traditionally geared toward lamp-based technology. The new projectors’ light source have a total constant brightness of 4,500 lumens for up to 12,000 hours depending on usage environment, enabling users to experience the projectors’ original level of image quality over 5 years in standard use, while achieving a maximum 5,000 lumens brightness when the constant brightness mode is off.

A product never before exhibited at Integrate is Sony’s new Vision Exchange. Developed to enable the presentation and sharing of content to inspire and engage teams with workgroup-based collaboration Vision Exchange brings together students, lecturers and presenters in a workgroup-based collaborative environment. Cost-effective, easy to configure and intuitive for every user, this total active learning solution is ideal for universities and colleges of higher education as well as corporate conference rooms. Vision Exchange lets teams and presenters brainstorm and work collaboratively by sharing each individual’s multimedia content together – even bringing in other participants at remote locations to join the discussion as required and share these local contents more seamlessly/effectively than ever before. Students or teams can work collaboratively in small independent workgroups or clusters connecting wirelessly to the platform via their own laptops (PC/Mac), tablets or smartphone devices. Information created by workgroups using on-screen annotation tools or whiteboard with digital tag can then be saved as snapshots and downloaded to their connecting device.

Another new product to Integrate is Sony’s NUCLeUS™ smart digital operating room, a state-of-the-art control platform, assisting clinicians during surgery. NUCLeUS is Sony’s video-over-IP platform that streamlines workflow efficiency in today’s digital OR by showing visual data in front of the surgeons, while retaining all digitised information centrally.
Uniquely flexible and readily scalable, it manages the planning, routing, recording and distribution of multiple imaging and data sources across hospital’s standard IT networks.
NUCLeUS™ is the ultimate solution for any future-oriented hospital.

The final display area on the Integrate 2017 stand will be dedicated to Sony’s BRAVIA HD and 4K Professional Displays. Sony large format display screens and digital signage public displays ensure the highest quality image reproduction for every environment and application. At Integrate 2017 Sony will be demonstrating a wide range of superior quality public display screens, leading digital signage and intuitive content management solutions that enable businesses, education establishments, venues, retail environments and transport hubs to maximise audience engagement.
