Both projectors are capable of horizontal and vertical shift of up to 63% and 113% respectively and this unique feature eradicates the need to tilt the projector, which can deteriorate image resolution.
The new multi-functional projectors are also offer compliant with the Grayscale Standard Display Function (GSDF) defined in Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM), making it ideal for use in healthcare institutions where viewing minute imaging details is crucial.

The Sony WUXGA projectors feature an innovative Quad Filter System which uses a single airflow system to stop nearly all common dust particles from entering the projector. The filters themselves have an average lifespan of 15,000 hours for the VPL-FH30, and 8000 hours for the VPL-FH500L.
The VPL-FH500L will be available in February 2011, and the VPL-FH30 in March 2011, in the Asia Pacific region.
