Sony just announced a new 4K HDR SXRD home theater projector line-up, including the entry-level VPL-VW285ES model for $5,000. It supports 4K HDR signals at 60p with 10-bit depth for compatibility with gaming systems and high frame rate movies. Viewers will enjoy the TRILUMINOS DISPLAY that provides a much broader color range while reproducing more tones and textures, and longer playing time than a standard projector with operation time of up to 6,000 hours for fewer interruptions and reduced maintenance costs.

Sony also announced the next step up model VPL-VW385ES 4K HDR home theater projector for $8,000 offering high brightness and contrast ratio (200,000:1 dynamic). An Advanced Iris offers clear and crisp images with deep, rich blacks and detailed highlights. In addition, Picture Position Memories store custom settings so that anyone can quickly watch movies in their ideal screen format. Customized lens focus, zoom and shift settings, as well as aspect ratio and blanking, can be stored for easy recall so that the viewing experience goes uninterrupted.

Sony’s premium VPL-VW675ES 4K HDR projector, introduced last year for $15,000, remains in the line but receives the following updates as a running change for new and existing customers: Adds the Hybrid Log Gamma format with auto-detection to the supported HDR formats; Provides additional detail about the color format and HDR format of incoming signals in the Information Menu; and Employs an improved lens for even better focus and stability than before.

For the ultimate Sony projection experience, the VPL-VW885ES ($25,000) is a laser 4K HDR projector delivering even better picture quality. It features 2,000 lumens of brightness, Infinite Dynamic Contrast with real-time laser light level control and 20,000 hours of lamp life, along with whisper-quiet operations. It is equipped with two 18 Gbps HDMI inputs that support HDCP 2.2., to allow access to the highest frame rates and bit depths of 4K resolution content. Movie buffs and enthusiasts using ultra-wide screens will appreciate the vertical stretch compatibility for 4K signals (V-stretch for 4K), as well as for HD content, that can be employed with 3rd-party anamorphic lenses to fully utilize the display area.
