Sony 720p Projector Duo

Sony on Wednesday bolstered its HDTV front projectors with two new models that it claims bring HD projection to more viewers. The AW10 and AW15 (pictured) each sport a native 720p resolution that Sony says is ideal for both gaming and HD viewing; an HDMI input on either model can handle video as sharp as 1080p at 24 frames per second and will automatically downscale or upscale the picture to fit. Each also has component, S-video, and RCA inputs. The projectors are relatively bright at 1,100 lumens and quiet at 20 decibels.

The AW15 trumps the more basic AW10 through its lens system, according to the company. A more advanced dynamic iris doubles the contrast ratio from 6,000:1 to 12,000:1, while the lens itself can shift for a better position and has a better focus system to adapt to smaller rooms. Both projectors are due in June at prices of $1,000 for the AW10 and $1,300 for the AW15.
