Sony Introduces Home Cinema Projector Trio At IFA


The new projectors all come with evolved 4K Motionflow enabling smoother and clear motion by adding extra frames to reduce blur and maintain brightness, especially helpful with fast moving scenes such as sporting events. The three models also offer HDR (high dynamic range) images in delicate colour gradation thanks to HDMI 18 Gbps compatibility and 4K 60P 10bit processing, says Sony.

To meet the growing demand for 4K/60p gaming content, users can now also enjoy faster response speeds with input lag reduction, says the maker. This is combined with Reality Creation technology that is designed to analyse every element of an image to provide enhanced clarity and resolution without noise.

Alongside this, the addition of the Digital Focus Optimiser in the VPL-VW870ES provides refined image quality and accurate focus without distortion, says Sony.
