Video

Supports Full HD

The Sony Vpl-fhz65 supports full HD, as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than a year ago.

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to this data projector the projector brightnesses range from 600 ANSI lumens to 16,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,100 ANSI lumens. At 6,000 ANSI lumens, the Vpl-fhz65 has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as this multimedia projector.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the CP-WX8650 (£2,445.60) (6,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the CP-WX8750 (£2,798.40) (7,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Hitachi or the Optoma X515 (6,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
