Sony Introduced 4K High-End Home Theatre Projector
Last year at CEDIA Sony released its first 3D home projector, this year they launched the world’s first 4K home front projector, the VPL-VW1000ES. The projector offers the highest resolution for a home theatre projector, over four times that of a HDTV. The VW1000ES also employs an entirely new SXRD 4K panel, which produces outstanding deep blacks; when combined with Sony's Iris3 technology, the projector can achieve an incredible 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast.
In addition to supporting 4K native resolution, the VW1000ES projector also features an exclusive Super Resolution 4K "upscaler" that dramatically enhances 2D and 3D 1080P content, allowing you to get the most from your existing Blu-ray Disc libraries at home. For greater versatility, it has a built-in transmitter, it has picture position memory which memorizes the position of the zoom lens, and it supports 2D and 3D anamorphic films.
The VW1000ES “will allow them to become totally involved in the viewing experience and much closer to the action on the biggest home theatre screens, with images that deliver considerably more detail and fewer artifacts," said Mike Abary, senior vice president of Sony Electronics' Home Division. “Our new VPL-VW1000ES 4K home theatre projector has been created to not just meet but exceed the needs of the most discerning and demanding home entertainment enthusiasts.”
Sony's new VPL-VW1000ES 4K home theater front projector will begin shipping in December through Sony's network of A/V specialists and customer installers for under $25,000.
