Sony Launches Home Cinema Projectors For That Immersive 4K HDR Viewing Experience

Sony today announced the expansion of its ultra short throw home theatre line-up with the introduction of the VPL-VZ1000ES 4K HDR home theatre projector, designed to integrate easily into people’s homes. Sony’s latest innovative laser light source projector is High Dynamic Range (HDR) compatible with native 4K resolution. It can be positioned as little as six inches away from the wall, yet command the room with a 254cm (100 inch) image, measured diagonally in 16:9.

The VPL-VZ1000ES is approximately 925 x 494 x 219mm in size. Despite its compact size and lower price, the VPL-VZ1000ES generates 2,500 lumens of colour light output. Sony's advanced SXRD panels, coupled with the Z-Phosphor laser light engine, produce high dynamic contrast, enhancing the highlights and lowlights of HDR content.

"Up until now home cinema enthusiasts have needed a dedicated room for watching projected content; this isn't always ideal, since not everyone has the luxury of extra space to accommodate an extra-large screen. The new VPL-VZ1000ES changes this dynamic completely, providing an enchanting home theatre experience up to 120" in your existing living space."

The Reality Creation enhances the authenticity of the viewing experience...

The VPL-VW760ES produces stunning images, using a laser light source with 2,000 lumens for spectacular and long-lasting brightness. The technology ensures high-dynamic contrast with new light level control that adjusts to the brightness of the scene in real-time, so bright scenes appear more vivid and darker scenes have more depth. Because of its compact size with 496mm in depth which is 40% smaller than current laser light source model 1 , the projector is easily installed in a shelf or hang on the ceiling.
