New Sony projector displays at twice the resoution of 1080p

Sony has announced the roll-out of its VPL-VW1000ES projector, which brings super-high definition to home theaters. The VPL-WV1000ES is the first 4K resolution projector designed for home theaters. The new projector displays not only the ultra-high definition 4K format, but also upscales SD and HD content to 4K resolution.

Sony's new projector projects a 4096x2160 resolution image. Sony says the projector allows viewers to sit close to the screen without any image degradation. Within the distance of three times the height of the picture, viewers will not experience any image issues, such as the "screen-door effect" or fixed-pattern noise.

The projector produces 2,000 ANSI-lumens of brightness with a 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. It also features a 2.1x motorized zoom and is capable of producing images from 60 to 300 diagonal inches in size. The 330W bulb has an expected lifespan of 2,000 to 2,500 hours.

The projector also supports 3D content, although it relies upon active-shutter 3D glasses, requiring USB-chargeable 3D glasses. It comes with two HDMI ports, component input, a mini D-sub port, and an Ethernet port. The projector will retail for about $26,000.
