Sony Reveals Stunning 4K Short-Throw Projector

How much is too much? When will we, as consumers, be satisfied with what we have? The short answer probably never. In the ever growing field of visual technology, developers are hard at work making video devices that have pictures that are so crisp, so clear and so realistic that we will eventually think we are physically in the entertainment we are watching. The latest stab at this venture is 4K technology. 4K is the successor to what most of us have grown accustomed to, 1080p HD, and bills itself as UHD, or Ultra High-Definition. The technology has just recently started to creep into televisions and computer monitors but now even projector companies are getting in on the fun.

Back at CES 2014 consumers were given a taste of Sony's first attempt at a short-throw 4K projector that works as perfectly on walls as it does on projector screens. Well it didn't take Sony long to announce that not only is the projector going to be consumer ready this year but also that the US is getting THIS MONTH! In case you are unfamiliar with the technology, short-throw projectors allow you to have very large pictures without having to project the image from across the room. Basically you can set the projector right in front of the wall or screen you want to project on and the picture is big and beautiful.

The projector itself, known as the Sony Life Space UX, is a short-throw 4K projector that is housed in a sleek rectangle that looks a lot like a nice credenza, which makes it perfect for living rooms and entertainment centers as it pretty much blends in with the rest of the furniture. The overall premise of this projector is that you will have various projection and display devices hidden in different places of the room allowing you to project pictures onto a multitude of surfaces.

There are four different components that comprise the Life Space UX. There's an interactive table-top projection, an interactive metallic wall-panel, a ceiling projector and the incomparable 4K wall projector that is capable of producing a 147" picture from only a few inches away from the wall or screen (I'll give you a minute to wipe the drool from your mouth).

Sony's demonstration of the technology suggest that you pair two projectors for optimal effect, though I can't imagine a lot of people would have a use for all these different projections all over your room. Regardless, a single short-throw 4K projector looks to be a nice option if you are looking for a truly high-end home entertainment setup.

In addition to the Life Space UX, Sony also announced that it will be making a portable version of the projector. This one is said to be easily packed up and taken with you wherever you go and is capable of projecting a 27" picture. However, I'm not entirely sure that there's even a market for projectors that small with that crisp of a picture quality but I digress. If you want the stunning Life Space UX ultra short-throw 4K projector from Sony then you better start saving as this bad boy will run you a hefty $50,000 (Fifty Thousand Dollars in case you thought that was a typo).
