This projector has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
4096 x 2160 resolution
Higher than average contrast ratio (typical)
The vpl-gtz270 is particularly suitable for demanding multi-projection applications in 2d or 3d, with consistently homogeneous brightness that is a result of the laser light source
The highly efficient laser light source is rated for a nominal 20,000 hours (up to 40,000 hrs in constant brightness mode), for virtually zero maintenance without the need for any lamp exchanges. long term reliability is assured further by dust-sealed optics
Installers will also appreciate the projector's auto calibration, compatibility with leading AV room automation systems, and a robust chassis that can be installed at any angle for maximum flexibility
