Impressive WUXGA picture quality is boosted by newly improved Reality Creation technology. Images are analyzed and compared against Sony’s unique pattern database, using pixel remapping to ensure that video, diagrams, and text always look crisp and sharp.
Intelligent Setting fine-tunes brightness, color, cooling, and other projector parameters for consistently clear, bright pictures in real-world operating conditions. There’s even an ambient light sensor that adjusts image brightness to suit the environment. The VPL-FHZ85 is ideal for integration in corporate, education, and public environments. Its class-leading

lens shift adjustment range and wide choice of interchangeable lenses broaden installation possibilities in any space, including rooms and halls with high ceilings. Installation is further simplified with Sony’s Intelligent Setting that optimizes brightness, cooling, color, and other projector settings for great pictures in every environment.
Maintenance requirements are reduced by the sealed laser light source and automated filter cleaning system that prevent dust build-up, ensuring cool, efficient operation with uncompromised image brightness.

Reality Creation for clearer images and text
The use of 4K photos and videos is increasingly common in presentations. While the VPL-FHZ85 is a WUXGA projector, it offers a 4K60P input to display images with quality that’s close to true 4K resolution. Sony’s powerful Reality Creation processing technology uses powerful algorithms that boost image resolution even closer to 4K clarity. Reality Text improves visibility of characters—
ideal for presenting in conference rooms and classrooms.

Consistently bright, beautiful colors
Bright View is Sony’s unique processing technology that brightens images while maintaining rich colors when you’re presenting in brightly lit business and educational environments.

Stylish blend-in design
The slim, stylish body features a flat top surface that blends discreetly into any space when the projector is ceiling mounted.
Generous lens shift range

The VPL-FHZ85 provides more installation freedom thanks to its class-leading vertical +70% lens shift adjustment range. Enjoy greater flexibility to position the projector in restricted spaces, ensuring that audience and presenter aren’t distracted by the light source.

Versatile lens options
In addition to the supplied standard lens, there’s a range of lens options to suit virtually any size of room and throw requirements. The projector’s quick-release bayonet mount simplifies lens exchange.

4K 60P input capable
The projector’s 4K 60P input capability makes life simpler when you’re using it in multi-screen set-ups with other devices like flat panel sub-screens. Just split the same 4K signal to drive all your displays, with no conversion needed.

Intelligent Settings for easy installation
Intelligent Settings simplifies installation and maximizes performance based on projector usage, image detail, color richness and fidelity, light output, cooling level, and output noise. The Meeting/Classroom function controls laser output to keep brightness as high as possible for a period of actual usage time. Intelligent Settings with Ambiance uses a built-in light sensor to measure room brightness, automatically adjusting Bright View mode, color gain, and Reality Creation to suit your presentation

Automatic filter cleaning
The VPL-FHZ85 helps minimize time spent on routine maintenance. The projector’s automated filter cleaning system removes dust every 100 hours, ensuring unrestricted clean air intake for optimized cooling.

Avoid dust build-up
The sealed laser light source ensures that dust can’t accumulate, helping to maintain image brightness and clarity over the projector’s lifetime. The dedicated cooling duct for the projector’s 3LCD panels is covered with an air filter to prevent dust from entering.

Data cloning
The new Data Cloning feature makes it easy to copy settings from one projector to another via USB flash memory drive. You’ll appreciate the time saving when installing and setting up multiple projectors.

Auto input select
Don’t get distracted by fiddling with input settings while you’re preparing for your presentation. The VPL-FHZ85 automatically switches to the right input when a new source is connected to the projector.
