Sony 4K Projector: The Ultimate Home Theater

Sony 4K Projector: The Ultimate Home Theater

Leading The Way

Sony has transformed the movie theater industry over the past few years with its 4K technology and will now transform your home theater experience. Over 8,800 movie theaters worldwide are equipped with Sony 4K cinema projectors and now you can have that same experience in your home with Sony’s VPL-VW1000ES 4K home theater projector. This groundbreaking projector delivers an incredibly immersive and captivating viewing experience with more than 4 times the resolution of 1080p.

Sony’s 4K picture resolution allows you to sit closer to the screen and get into your movies like never before with an exclusive HD-to-4K algorithm, which upscales 1080p to 4K. This makes all your current Blu-ray Disc movies and HD content look even more incredible than before.

The new VPL-VW1000ES 4K projector from Sony offers 8.8-million pixels at a resolution of 4096×2160.  Current 1080p projection systems only have a resolution of 2.2-million pixels at 2048×1080. The graphic below demonstrates the pixel advantage that Sony 4K has over 720p and 1080p:

Making News

The Sony VPL-VW1000ES is making headlines with its groundbreaking technology and amazing picture quality. Here is just a small sample of what the press has to say:

“The right 4K stuff.”

“Given a good 1920 x 1080 HD source, the projector produced some of the best 2D images I’ve yet seen… to see such resolution from conventional HD material on a screen this large is simply jaw dropping…

Sony’s blacks were respectable in its fixed iris settings but exception in the Auto Full dynamic mode… No one does dynamic irises better than Sony.”

“I have seen the future of home theatre and it is 4K.”

“Sony’s VPL-VW1000ES projector produced the best 2-D Blu-ray images I’ve every seen anywhere on any home theatre projection system…

Everything is simply cleaner and less grainy looking. The 1000ES has no visible pixel structure so there are no gaps between pixels at all.”
