Want True 4K in Your Home Theater? Go with Sony
Enhance Your Home Theater Installation
If you love movies, there’s a good chance you’ve invested in a home theater installation for your Durham property.
But technology changes at a rapid pace, and what you installed a decade ago could be obsolete now.
Take the 4K revolution, for instance; 4K Ultra HD TVs are a dime a dozen today but were nowhere to be found in 2008.
The technology has been slower to develop for projectors, but Sony’s latest line offers all the features you’re looking for.
In this blog, we’ll explore some of the coolest new features you can expect when you upgrade to a Sony projector.
While the industry continues to embrace the higher resolution that 4K offers, projectors have been slower to pick up the new tech. Most so-called “4K” projectors offer upscaled HD images. The images look good—better than now-standard 1080p—but not true 4k.
But Sony is looking to change that with their new line of projectors, revealed at this year’s CEDIA Expo in San Diego. The new line loses the reliance on digital upscaling to enhance the experience and provide pixel-perfect clarity to the viewer.
High-lumen counts are necessary when viewing 4K and especially HDR content. Sony is changing the game with its projectors, and they aren’t slowing down any time soon. At this year’s CEDIA, they made a splash with high-performance laser diodes. According to Forbes:
“The star of the show in performance terms is the VPL-VW870ES. This uses a laser diode lighting system rather than the usual projection lamp, … to generate a peak light output of 2,200 lumens (a couple of hundred lumens up on the VW760ES), while a brand new dual dynamic contrast system is on hand to hopefully ensure that this extra brightness doesn’t come at the cost of reduced black levels.”
That level of brightness is perfect for larger spaces, and rooms with ample ambient light. It provides excellent picture clarity and emphasizes the stunning levels of depth provided by the high contrast features.
Contrast offers depth and detail to projected images—something many projectors struggle with, especially when accounting or HDR content.
Sony’s projectors offer deep contrast, so you have optimal picture clarity. For instance, their latest line offers a dual-approach, featuring both a dynamic iris (one that automatically opens and closes) and adjustable output from the laser light source.
If you’re upgrading your projector, be on the lookout for true 4K, high-brightness, and dynamic contrast. If you want to make it easy, go with Sony.
