Sony Launches First 4K Projector

Sony has just recently launched its all new VPL-VW1000ES projector, claiming that this device is the world's first 4K projector, meaning it's pushing around 10,000,000 pixels. The company is also touting this device as its flagship projector and has currently only released the device in India. Whether or not it will make its way to other countries any time soon (if at all) still remains to be seen as Sony hasn't disclosed any information on that front just yet..

The VPL-VW1000ES utilizes an all new SXRD 4K panel, allowing it to produce a high contrast and 2,000 ANSI lumens of brightness. In addition to that, the VPL-VW1000ES can achieve an impressive 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio when paired with Sony's Iris3 technology. This resolution output allows the VPL-VW1000ES to produce images of up to 200" diagonally for, as Sony describes it, "awe-inspiring cinematic viewing in the comforts of the home."

According to a statement from Deputy General Manager, Professional Solution Division, Sony India Munetaka Sataru, "Our new VPL-VW1000ES 4K home theater projector has been created to not just meet, but exceed the needs of the most discerning and demanding home Picture9.png entertainment enthusiasts. It will allow them to become totally immersed in the viewing experience with the action unfolding before their eyes in a new level of realism."

Aside from supporting a 4K resolution, the VPL-VW1000ES also comes with Sony's Super Resolution 4K upscaler "Reality Creation", which is designed to enhance all content produced, whether it's SD, HD, 2D or 3D, to higher definition true 4K picture signals. This projector also has a built-in IR transmitter for Full 4K 3D, which drives the device's TDG-PJ1 active shutter 3D glasses. There is also Picture Position Memory, which memorizes the position of the zoom lens, and support for 2D and 3D anamorphic films.

A plethora of installation options also comes with the VPL-VW1000ES, including dual triggers, a 2.1 motorized zoom, expanded throw distances, an RS 232 interface, control over IP and compatibility with virtually every home automation integrator possible. You can pick up Sony's VPL-VW1000ES 4K projector for around $25,000 when it is released sometime this year.
