Sony releases new 4K VPL-VW675ES projector
Sony has released a new HDR 4K projector at this year’s CEDIA 2016 event. The VPL-VW675ES is perfect for a home cinema set up.

The projector is the first to offer two HDR content standards. This means it is planned to be able to stream 4K content in HDR at some point. As this is still a short way off from becoming a reality, the new projector will be able to stream content from Amazon Prime, Netflix, and other streaming platforms. In addition, it supports the ability to stream 4K Blu-ray content.

The key component to the VW675ES is its SXRD projection panes. These allow the projector to offer full, real native 4K Ultra HD visuals of 3840 by 2160 without the need to utilise pixel shifting or upscaling technologies. Currently, other rival projector companies have to use an element of pixel shifting.

With its ability to stream 4K UHD content, the VW675ES is an impressive piece of kit. With its fill connectivity ports including HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2, the projector is going to impress consumers looking to buy a reliable and technologically advanced home cinema projector. In addition to all of this, the projector comes with 1800 in brightness lumens and a contrast ratio of 350,000:1. This means that the bulb will last 6,000 hours.

In a statement, Andrew Floyd, product manager for projectors at Sony Electonics Inc, said: “Sony is the leader in full native 4K resolution projectors for the home theatre market. The successor to the award-winning VPL-VW665ES introduced just last year at CEDIA; the VPL-VW675ES demonstrates our continuing commitment to provide cutting-edge home cinema technology to our customers and the custom install channel."
