Sony’s New 4K Projector Produces 8.8 Million Pixels In Glorious HDR
Sony unveiled a new 4K home theater video projector during the 2016 Consumer Electronics Design and Installation Expo in Dallas, Texas. The VPL-VW675ES, with an MSRP of $14,999, replaces the previous 665 model in Sony’s line up of video projectors with native 4K ultra HD resolution — that’s 8.8 million pixels to be exact. For comparison, 1080p HD projection has just over 2 million pixels of resolution.
8.8 million pixels of native 4K resolution.
True Native 4K Ultra HD Projection
Other projectors manufacturers, use “shifting” or “wobbulance” to create and image with more detail than HD projection. Often referred to as “4K lite” or “quasi-4K”, these solutions are an improvement over HD, but they’re still not true 4K. Sony is one of the only projector manufacturers offering true native 4K Ultra HD projection.
“Sony’s ‘600’ series 4K projectors have always been a popular choice with our clients because of the rich colors and incredible detail they can produce. And with 8.8 million pixels of native resolution — at this price point — nothing else comes close to Sony’s ”
This new model improves on the previous one with expanded support for HDR (High Dynamic Range). That means more color, more contrast — now 350,000:1 and a brighter picture with a lamp rated for 6,000 hours.
This new VPL-VW675ES is midway in Sony’s line with and uses the same proprietary technology that Sony uses in their commercial 4K projectors. Like other Sony ES Products, the VPL-VW675ES is designed to integrate with home control systems like Control4 and Savant making it perfect for home theaters.
