Sony celebrates 50 years of projectors with the new VPL range

Sony celebrates 50 years of projectors with the new VPL range

To celebrate 50 years since the launch of the first projection system in 1972, Sony announced on April 26th two new laser projectors designed for home use, the VPL-XW7000ES and the VPL-XW5000ES.

These two new projectors take advantage of the latest technological innovations created by Sony to offer an incredibly detailed visual experience, even in the brightest environments.

Featuring an SXRD panel with native 4K resolution and a 0.61-inch diagonal (the smallest in the world), the two new Sony projectors deliver a detailed, high-contrast image , all without exceeding the dimensions of the frame of both models.

The new optics fitted to both models offer a wide dynamic range and, in combination with Triluminous Pro technology, offer an unprecedented viewing experience. The image processor, equipped with the X1 Ultimate system, is the same that is currently used on the most recent Bravia TV models, carefully optimized to be able to operate on the projectors without compromising and allowing functions such as the Dynamic HDR Enhancer and the Object-based Super Resolution.

This year we celebrate 50 years of top quality projectors, thanks to which we offer our customers immersive entertainment experiences. Our native 4K SXRD projectors have been market leaders in such experiences for over a decade. We are thrilled to be able to offer our customers the world's most compact and high brightness laser projectors, with a new elegant design that perfectly matches different home environments and offers even more flexibility of use in dedicated rooms or living rooms with ambient lighting. These new models demonstrate our constant commitment to developing products that deliver extraordinary visual experiences and provide customers with added value with every generation.

The VPL-XW5000ES laser model joins Sony's line-up of 2000lm projectors and offers higher resolution and contrast and a 30% reduction in power consumption per lumen, as well as object-oriented HDR technology for powerful real-time image processing. In the XW series, over a billion colors come to life thanks to TRILUMINOS PRO with 95% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. - th_altra_d_mh3_1 slot id: th_altra_d_mh3 "); } The 0.61 ″ native 4K SXRD panel (the smallest in the world) is featured in both models and delivers 4K resolution (3840 x 2160) images with 8.3 million pixels for an incredibly realistic result. With rich, deep blacks, as well as sharp cinema-quality movement and a smooth image, the two new projectors reproduce stunning colors with more hues and textures than a standard projection system.

Wide dynamic range optics are used to ensure high resolution and contrast and deliver highly immersive visual experiences. In the new SXRD panel with native 4K, featured in both of Sony's new projectors, a reflective silicon layer improves light control for accurate shadow and black reproduction, as well as durability and reflectance of light.

The Dynamic HDR Enhancer, thanks to the processing power of the X1 Ultimate system for projectors, allows for contrast optimization, in combination with the new laser output control, to make HDR scenes even brighter. The new “object-oriented” HDR technology ensures greater real-time image processing power, analyzing the objects in each frame to deliver unprecedented HDR images for any type of content.

In addition, the VPL-XW7000ES model features Advanced Crisp Focus (ACF) Optics, which offer extreme sharpness across the entire screen with a 70mm aspherical front lens for a larger focusing area. in focus for 4K images. A floating-type focusing system also ensures more stable images from side to side and without distortion from long and short projection distances. Finally, the Extra Low Dispersion glass is used to reproduce clear images without color deviations.

Both models, available starting this summer, are also made following Sony's desire to reduce the environmental impact. The new XW range integrates a wide range of sustainable features, achieved without compromising elegant style, cutting-edge technology and price positioning. Compared to its predecessor, the VPL-VW790ES, the plastic used for the VPL-XW7000ES has been reduced by 30% and packaging materials have been reduced by 15%.

The VPL-XW5000ES features 2000 powerful lumens, but its power consumption has been reduced by 30%. Both models are made with a mercury-free laser light source. The new XW series, in conclusion, renews Sony's commitment to offering its customers immersive and impactful visual experiences, and adds to the constantly evolving range of displays.
