Sony Electronics Inc introduced two new native 4K (4096×2160) home cinema projectors with SXRD panels. The new lamp VPL-VW715ES, VPL-VW915ES models replace the VPL-VW695ES and VPL-VW885ES respectively, and both projectors offer an incredibly clear HDR experience by implementing a new picture processor “X1™ for projector,” based on technology used for Sony’s best-in-class TVs.
“Sony has led the 4K projector market for nearly a decade, and we’re thrilled to announce a new range of powerhouse models for our customers and CI dealers,” says Mike Fasulo, president and chief operating officer of Sony Electronics North America. “Offering a big screen, immersive viewing experience that delivers the creator’s true intent is a core goal when developing our projectors, and these new models are no exception.”
Key Features of the VPL-VW715ES & VPL-VW915ES
- Dynamic HDR Enhancer: Due to the processing power of the newly installed X1 for projector, more detailed analysis is performed and HDR enhancement power is stronger compared to previous models. The new HDR feature analyzes scene-by-scene to deliver the best contrast performance when viewing HDR content, making the bright scenes brighter and the dark scenes darker. This dynamic range of contrast and brightness is further expanded by linking the light source and iris to further calibrate lighting output.
- Digital Focus Optimizer: This new technology improves focus level by compensating optical degradation of the lens to offer corner-to-corner clarity.
- Sony’s Unique Super Resolution “Reality Creation” Technology: X1 for projector analyzes each scene to enrich 4K content with real-world detail and texture. Even content filmed in 2K or Full HD is upscaled close to 4K. Resolution of each subject is then optimized to reproduce real-world textures, according to Sony.
Both the VPL-VW715 and the VPL-VW915 model are available to order today at Best Buy, Amazon and other authorized dealers.
