Sony Announces Addition to its 4K HDR Home Theater Projector Line-Up

sony-4k-0916Today, Sony Electronics is expanding its home theater line-up with the announcement of the VPL-VW675ES, a new, compact native 4K resolution Home Cinema projector supporting the latest 4K standards and compatible with HDR to get the very best out of today’s content.

The VPL-VW675ES will be among the industry’s first home cinema projectors to support Hybrid Log-Gamma (HyLG) for HDR broadcasting services and user generated content – through a firmware update to be provided soon after the new HDMI specification is standardized. Sony’s newest home projector joins the existing ES line-up with home cinema standard HDR 10 support and is compatible with streamed HDR content from Amazon, Netflix and video streaming services, as well as Ultra HD Blu-ray players. HDR offers an extremely wide range of brightness levels allowing for a tremendous increase in the volume of displayable colors to deliver images that match the director’s intentions and vision. VPL- VW675ES also includes a feature which enables customers to adjust the average screen brightness, depending on their environments or preferences, while maintaining HDR reproduction.

Like Sony’s other 4K HDR home theater projectors, the VPL-VW675ES uses native 4K SXRD panels, with no artificial manipulation of pixels (wobulation).

It offers 4K content services through the latest connectivity options using the latest HDMI standard and HDCP 2.2 on both inputs. The VPL-VW675ES home theater projector will be available in November 2016 and list is $14,999.99. Here are all the specs.
