By |


Sony-VPL-VW350ES.jpgSony has introduced its first sub-$10,000 4K projector, in the form of the VPL-VW350ES SXRD projector due out sometime this month. In addition to its 4,096 x 2,160 resolution, the VPL-VW350ES features Sony's Triluminos and Motionflow technologies, 3D capability, a 2.06x zoom, HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2, and a brightness rating of 1,500 lumens.  

From Sony
Sony Electronics unveiled the new full 4K VPL-VW350ES projector, broadening its home theater projector line-up. The VPL-VW350ES is Sony's latest product to deliver a true 4K experience, offering four times the resolution of Full HD with a 4K native resolution (4,096 x 2,160).

Outstanding Image Quality and Easy Connectivity
The VPL-VW350ES uses Sony's 4K SXRD panel technology to achieve high resolution images without compromising deep contrast and fast motion capabilities. It also incorporates Sony's exclusive TRILUMINOS technology, an enhanced optical engine design which gives rich color reproduction offering pure, bold colors. This works in conjunction with the projector's 1,500 lumens of brightness to engineer a wider color space for more vibrant tones and increased precision. Motionflow picture technology also delivers clearer images when watching fast-paced, sporting action. Additionally, the projector also comes with low latency mode for gamers, as well as a set of easy to control options for enhanced home automation capability.

The VPL-VW350ES supports the latest connectivity standards through HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2, enabling users to enjoy the latest 4K content services from Sony, Netflix and Amazon Instant Video.

Installation Friendly
The VPL-VW350ES provides added installation flexibility thanks to the projector's compact size and front air exhaust cooling system, allowing for a wide range of set-up opportunities. The projector uses a powered 2.06x zoom lens with a wide shift range, which removes the requirement for additional platform extensions in ceiling mounts. A built-in RF 3D transmitter makes it easy to provide further adaptability with a strong wireless signal for wider coverage, 3D synchronization stability and coverage.

Pricing and Availability
The VPL-VW350ES will be available starting January 2015 for under $10,000 at Sony stores and other authorized dealers nationwide.
