Here at Stereo East, our system designers and clients are thrilled with Sony’s line of home theater projectors. Why is that? With multiple models that deliver a lifelike cinema viewing experience in very attractive price-points, Sony continues to dominate in the front projector category.
Affordable High-Definition Front Projectors
Earlier this year, Sony wowed the A/V world with the launch of its most affordable home theater projector, the VPL-HW40ES. Jam-packed with the latest technology and retailing for only $2499, the 40ES quickly became a fan favorite. This 1080p projector incorporates Reality Creation for Full HD, a feature originally developed for Sony’s higher-end 4K projectors. By restoring missing information lost during broadcast transmission and content compressing, the projector is capable of reproducing details of the original 1080p signal. The projector also produces smooth and sharp motion as a result of Motionflow technology, an algorithm exclusive to Sony.
Consumers looking for enhanced contrast upgrade to the VPL-HW55ES model. The 55ES, retailing at $3999, includes automatic Iris control which maintains peak brightness while maximizing black and white levels. Unlike the 40ES, the 55ES model also comes with two pairs of 3D glasses and an extra lamp.
Sony’s 4K Ultra HD Projectors Set the Standard
In a previous blog post, we focused on an emerging technology, 4K Ultra HD. Ultra HD projectors from Sony deliver a truly breathtaking home cinema experience. The current entry-level 4K projector, the VPL-HW600ES, stuns with 4096 x 2160 resolution, an incredibly high dynamic contrast ratio of 200,000:1, and high brightness. New Motionflow modes, advanced SXRD panels, and TRILUMINOS Display technology create an ultra-smooth and realistic picture. Motorized lens memory allows users to match a movie’s aspect ratio, making it easy to view in a wide-screen format. In addition to native 4K content available from Sony, the 600ES upscales Full HD content to 4K using Reality Creation.
Viewers in search of the ultimate 4K home cinema experience turn to the top-of-the-line VPL-HW1100ES projector. Brighter than the 600ES and with improved scaling and processing, the 1100ES delivers a native 4K picture. Special attention has been devoted to the 4K All-Range Crisp Focus lens. Specifically created for this projector, the 18-element glass lens delivers high-precision and detail in all corners of the image. An automatic lens protector helps keep the optics dust-free while the device is not in use.
