Sony has launched its latest 4K projectors aimed at the home cinema market. The two new SXRD units are rated for native 4K resolutions and have the same X1 processor found in many high-end BRAVIA TVs. The higher-end model has an ARC-F lens for image quality that goes right to the edge of the window it throws.

Sony has new projectors to unleash upon the 2021 home theater market. These 2 models have many specs and features in common, being for example both SXRD models with native 4096x2160 (4K) resolutions and their OEM's X1 platform, albeit one optimized for their category.

Sony asserts that this processor confers Dynamic HDR Enhancement on the new projectors, as well as Reality Creation, a suite that enhances detail in 4K and also upscales FHD to 2K content to the new units' full resolution. The projectors' input lag-managing technology may also make them suitable for gaming as well as movie nights.

Its new members are the VPL-VW1025ES and VPL-VW325ES: Sony's newest 2200-lumen laser and 1500-lumen lamp projectors respectively. The former also benefits from an All-Range Crisp Focus or ARC-F lens, which has 18 elements, all made of glass.

The OEM insists that this hardware results in "edge-to-edge" image quality, meaning the image it throws is rated to be equally crisp at its outermost borders as it is in the center. This promise does not come cheap, however: the VPL-VW1025ES has a recommended price of no less that US$39,999, whereas the VPL-VW325ES may go for closer to $5,499. They can be pre-ordered from now, although their availability may depend on location.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
