DALLAS, September 14, 2016 (CEDIA Booth #3710) – Today, Sony Electronics is expanding its home theatre 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. As demand for 4K HDR content continues to grow, the VPL- VW675ES is an ideal home cinema or living room theatre solution for movie, TV and sporting event fans who want to watch the content they love with the most spectacular image quality.

“Sony is the leader in full native 4K resolution projectors for the home theatre market,” said André Floyd, Product Manager for projectors at Sony Electronics Inc. “T he successor to the award-winning VPL-VW665ES introduced just last year at CEDIA, t he VPL-VW675ES demonstrates our continuing commitment to provide cutting-edge home cinema technology to our customers and the custom install channel.”

Breathtaking Picture Quality

The VPL-VW675ES will be amongst 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 Netflix and other 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 colours 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 accurate HDR reproduction.

Like Sony’s other award-winning 4K HDR home theatre projectors, the VPL-VW675ES uses native 4K SXRD™ panels, with no artificial manipulation of pixels. Rich and accurate colour reproduction is ensured by Sony’s proprietary TRILUMINOS™ engine design, while Motionflow™ picture technology serves to deliver clearer, less blurry images when watching fast-paced, cinematic or sports action.

With its native 4K resolution panel, the VPL-VW675ES provides precise and clear images with improved Reality Creation function for 4K signals , and supports HDR capability both for 4K 24P and 4K 60P  for fully enjoying various 4K HDR content. It delivers an impressive 1,800 lumens brightness, a dynamic contrast ratio of 350,000:1 and Sony’s unique 4K technology for further improvements on picture quality.

User Friendly

Thanks to its low fan noise, entertainment lovers can view their favourite programs undisturbed. Viewers can also expect fewer interruptions and reduced maintenance thanks to Sony’s long-lasting lamp technology, which has a higher brightness retention, requires less maintenance, and provides up to 6,000 hours of operation (in Low Mode). A built-in RF 3D transmitter makes it easy to provide further adaptability with a strong wireless signal for wider coverage and 3D synchronization stability, while a built-in auto calibration function resets the projector colorimetry to original factory levels to ensure viewers can continue to enjoy high picture quality throughout the life of the projector. And, the VPL-VW675ES allows users to enjoy up-to-date 4K content services through the latest connectivity options using the l atest HDMI standard and HDCP 2.2 on both inputs.  

Installation friendly

From native 4K to full HD 3D resolution, the new Sony Home Theatre projectors are packed with the latest innovative technologies to make home theatre more enjoyable for end users and the projectors are friendlier to install for dealers. Professional calibration features allow operators to expertly adjust the picture to suit the viewers’ tastes. These colour correction tools allow access to adjust the hue, saturation, and brightness of each colour and the colour space for red, green, blue respectively, to their desired level. The VPL-VW675ES’s compact size powered 2.06 zoom and wide-angle lens allows for flexible and easy installation. And the front exhaust enables a wide range of installation opportunities.

Installers can also take advantage of Projector Calibration Pro software on HD through 4K Sony home theatre models, allowing them to manipulate all of a projector’s features from a simple PC interface, including the sophisticated colour calibration tools. Setup configurations can be saved to a file to upload to any future installations, making future calibrations that much quicker. Additional adjustments made for a particular client can be saved in a separate file that will allow the installer to easily recall their original calibrations if ever needed to tweak that client’s system in the future.

Pricing and Availability

The VPL-VW675ES home theatre projector will be available in November 2016. MSRP is $19,999 CAD. Custom installers and other CEDIA attendees can get a first look at the CEDIA Sony Booth #3710 . For more information and images visit http://corporate.sony.ca/press_release .
