Sony has unveiled two new home cinema projectors designed to bring the quality of big screen images into the home.

The new models are the 4K VPL-VW500ES and the VPL-HW55ES, which offers the full HD 3D experience in a home cinema.

Sony used its experience in the professional cinema equipment market to create the VPL-VW500ES. The device has a 4096 x 2160 resolution to provide high quality 4K content and includes the Reality Scaler function, which allows the audience to watch their old Blu-Ray discs in 4K.

The projector is equipped with a 1,700 ANSI-lumen brightness and a 200,000:1 contrast ratio for improved picture quality, Motionflow technology for clearer images and manual colour correction. The compact projector has a 2.06 zoom powered lens and uses wireless technology.

The VPL-HW55ES projector is the improved version of the award winning VPL-HW50ES. It also uses the Reality Creation technology and has undergone an equipment upgrade from 2012’s initial model.

Tak Nakane, Product Manager at Sony Europe said: "The VPL-VW500ES brings the cinema experience into the home like never before and reinforces Sony's commitment to lead in 4K innovation from lens to living room. Innovations such as Sony's 4K SXRD panels provide unrivalled picture quality at high resolution to make the 4K dream a more affordable reality."
