Sony Personal Viewer Hmz-T3 And Hmz-T2-Test/Comparison

As with most manufacturers of video stills, Sony also produces the Sony Personal Viewer HMZ-T3W And HMZ-T2 No Priority On FPV dipping. The Eyeglasses Were Originally Designed As An Extension For The Home Cinema-As 3D Glasses For Viewing 3D Videofilms Or Kinofilms. Or For The DVD And Video Tour On The Move And In Flight.

The use as FPV glasses for multicopter pilots is therefore also in this case rather an alienation-but not impossible.

Hmz-T3w (W For Wireless) And Hmz-T2

With the HMZ-T3 or actually HMZ-T3W the data and image transmission to the glasses takes place wireless (wireless). A small box is responsible for this, which is connected via HDMI to the image source and then transmits the data wirelessly to the glasses. The advantage: less cable harness directly at the head-but also a bit more weight, since in the headset/in the glasses an additional battery and a receiving helicopter is present on

In addition, the data and/or videobooks can not be received by the camera at the Multicopter or Quadcopter directly with the glasses, as is possible with pure FPV solutions (eg Fatshark FPV glasses). The data here goes from the copter first wirelessly (mostly over 5.8 Ghz) to the FPV ground station, this extends the FPV Videobilder via HDMI to the Sony controler. From there it goes again by radio to the glasses.

The described structure already shows how complex the design is and how many hardware components are necessary.

The Sony Personal Viewer HMZ-T2 also connects the glasses via HDMI and via a ballast box. From there, however, continue by means of a cable to the glasses.

In both versions of the glasses work high-quality OLED displays (one per eye).

There were clear minus points in our tests in terms of wearing comfort for both versions. The glasses sits somehow oppressive on the head-especially the “brow brace” interferes rather than help. Also the weight is relatively high-at least subjectively feels this Videobrille quite difficult.

Parrot recommends the Sony Personal Viewer glasses, incidentally, for its new Bebop Drone as FPV equipment (next to the Zeiss Cinemizer OLED and the Epson Moverio, which are also not pure FPV Videobrillen).

The advantage of these glasses, which are actually intended for the home cinema area, is the excellent video quality/picture quality. Pure FPV glasses often move in the middle or low-cost price segment and have only displays with limited resolution and quality. This high-end product, on the other hand, offers a higher resolution than it can actually be used in the FPV flight. The FPV flight (First-Person-View=Pilotenperspektive) is currently still mainly carried out in the SD area and analogously. The digital image transmission and thus also the accompanying HD video quality is very rarely used-not least because of the expensive FPV-HD transmission components such as a Dji Lightbridge. The same applies to the audio components. The Sony Videobrille offers a 5.1 Virtual Dolby Surround solution that you can not use for the FPV flight.

Another important factor is the use in direct sunlight.Often, multimedia cinema glasses are not able to cope with the sun and the sunlight fades into the eyes or reflects in the screens. But here the Sony Personal Viewer has a solution: it is supplied with an anti-glare, which its services satisfies sufficiently well.

Test/Review/Review/Review/Buy Recommendation For The Sony Personal Viewer HMZ-T3 And HMZ-T2

The glasses are of the latest technology and offer a great picture with more than sufficient resolution. If the glasses are parallel in the home cinema or as a video projector for DVDs on the road, this acquisition is worthwhile twice.

As FPV glasses, the Sony Personal Viewer is also suitable and usable-in this case, however, we would recommend a pure FPV glasses. For example in the middle price segment a Fatshark Attitude V2 or Dominator-who absolutely wants to buy a HD-compatible FPV glasses to be equipped for the future or because he already has expensive HD FPV equipment (eg DJI Lightbridge or Dji Inspire 1 Quadrocpter), The Fatshark Dominator HD is recommended. This relatively expensive FPV glasses costs, in spite of everything, only a fraction of what a high-quality home cinema video block like the HMZ tested by Sony costs here.
