CES 2017: Sony launches ultra-short throw 4K HDR projector

Going into the year from a technologically excellent 2016, Sony showed the audience at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas that it is still hard at work bringing incredible new stuff to the table.

The company announced last January 4 the VPL-VZ1000ES, an ultra-short throw projector with 4K resolution and HDR compatibility.

Meant to be an inconspicuous part of the living room, the VPL-VZ1000ES is approximately 925 x 494 x 219 mm in dimension and 35 kg in weight which is 40 percent smaller than its previous ultra-short throw projector, the VPL-GTZ1.

The new projector carries a Z-Phosphor laser light source which generates 2500 lumens of color light output which is 25 percent brighter than its predecessor.

The light source, coupled with Sony’s SXRD panels can produce high dynamic contrast for improved HDR picture quality.

The projector sits six inches away from the surface projected on and creates a 4K-resolution display 100 inches across with a 16:9 aspect ratio.

The VPL-VZ1000ES will be available starting April of this year and priced at US $24,999.
