Sony has announced it is set to release its new short throw projector - the LSPX-W1S - in the UK in the coming months.

The device, which can project an image of up to 147 inches on a wall, will be available from the summer, the manufacturer revealed.

Sony's Laser Light Source innovation is included in the projector, meaning that brightness levels are protected even when the image is UHD.

Thomas Issa, product manager at Sony, stated that the 4K Ultra Short Throw projector "provides a completely new and innovative entertainment experience that only Sony can deliver".

He added: "The idea is to remove conventional boundaries by merging your home design and technology into a beautiful seamless experience."

It has also been claimed by Sony that the projector lights included in the LSPX-W1S will last over 10 times longer than a traditional projector lamp.

Mr Issa said: "We've received unprecedented demand in Europe following the products release in the United States and Japan, and we are delighted to bring this breakthrough projector to customers looking for state-of-the-art design and product information."

The 4K Ultra Short Throw projector is likely to come at a high price to match its top level features. Although Sony is yet to confirm its UK pricing for the LSPX-W1S, the device costs around $50,000 (£30,000) in the US, reports
