Sony Electronics is showcasing their latest in 4K home theater projection in the form of the VPL-VW5000ES.
Unveiled at last year’s CEDIA Expo, the VPL-VW5000ES is the first projector designed specifically for home cinema use that features 4K resolution powered by a laser light engine that provides 5,000 lumens of brightness, is compatible with High Dynamic Range (HDR), emulates the new BT.2020 color gamut and covers the full DCI color space. Sony’s advanced SXRD panels are designed to produce outstanding native device contrast and when coupled with the laser light engine, the VPL-VW5000ES provides an infinite dynamic contrast ratio and 5,000 lumens of color light output.
The VPL-VW5000ES is part of a lineup of Sony home theater projectors specifically designed for the installer market, which includes the VPL-VW665ES and VPL-VW365ES models also announced late last year. Both the VPL-VW665ES and VPL-VW365ES are currently available for sale.
