Sony has announced today the launch of its VPL-VW500ES 4K home cinema projector, for the Indian market at a price of Rs. 7,99,000, which will be available from 1st November. This projector will bring the full immersive cinema experience to the comfort of the home.
The Sony VPL-VW500ES is capable of delivering true 4K experience and quality to home users as it uses 4K SXRD panels which are capable of producing DCI based 4096 x 2160 pixel resolution. This projector is also equipped with the latest HDMI 2.0 standard to accommodate 4K/60P content, which enables fast action movie sequences to appear smoother without any electronic enhancement of the pixels. According to Sony, the VPL-VW500ES also possesses a 4K up-scaling algorithm that has been exclusively designed for “Mastered in 4K” Blu-ray discs from Sony Pictures Entertainment, enabling home viewers of these Blu-ray discs to enjoy more accurate 4K images.
The VPL-VW500ES has 1,700 ANSI-lumen brightness, and 200,000:1 contrast ratio, for sharper picture quality. As per Sony, with its TRILUMINOS display technology, the projector is able to reproduce rich colours and home viewers may also use the on-board manual colour correction tool to customise the hue, saturation and brightness of the picture according to their preferences. Further, the Sony’s Motionflow picture technology also works to deliver clearer, less blurry images when watching fast-paced, cinematic action.
“With any home projector set up, home users are typically concerned with the amount of rear space required for a projector installation. This concern has been addressed with the front air exhaust cooling system of the VPL-VW500ES, which allows home users to maximise the throw distance for a larger projected image without worrying about rear space limitations. Its 2.06 zoom powered lens with a wide shift range also means there is also no need for additional platform extensions in ceiling mounts for installation in rooms with high ceilings. A built-in RF transmitter provides further installation flexibility with a strong wireless signal for wider coverage”, Sony has added in its press release.
