Sony unveiled four new projectors at the recent CEDIA Expo 2015.
Starting with the VPL‑VW5000ES, this is a 5,000 lumens 4K SXRD laser light source projector that the manufacturer claims is the first designed specifically for the largest and most lavishly equipped home cinema rooms.
Boasting 4K resolution powered by a laser light engine that provides a brightness of 5,000 lumens, the projector is also compatible with High Dynamic Range (HDR), emulates the new BT.2020 colour gamut and covers the full DCI colour space.
Available in Europe in the first quarter of 2016, the projector provides over 20,000 hours of virtually maintenance-free operation. Sony is offering this new model up as its ultimate home cinema display device.
Meanwhile, the VPL-VW665ES is compatible with HDR (High Dynamic Range) content with a 300,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. HDR imagery is designed to more closely match how eyes perceive images, with higher contrast, deeper blacks and high dynamic range.
The VPL-VW365ES delivers native 4K resolution for what Sony describes as a truly immersive viewing experience
Equipped with a new long-lasting lamp that gives the projector up to 6,000 hours of performance, along with high brightness and high contrast, Sony says the VPL-VW365ES offers even more vibrant images.
The projector utilises advanced SXRDT panels for a native 4K picture with no artificial manipulation of pixels. Rich and accurate colour reproduction is provided by Sony’s proprietary TRILUMINOS engine design. Motionflow picture technology also serves to deliver clearer, less blurry images when watching fast-paced, sports action.
The new VPL-HW65ES uses SXRD panel technology and second generation Reality Creation for a Full HD home cinema experience at a lower price point.
The VPL-HW65ES also benefits from Sony’s 6,000-hour long-lasting lamp, a built-in RF 3D transmitter and a USB update function to keep the device’s firmware up-to-date with the latest software releases.
IP control gives the projector versatile home automation compatibility, which combines with its compact size and front exhaust for a range of flexible installation solutions.
