In an official statement, Sony today announced its latest full HD 3D home cinema projector, the VPL-HW50ES.
The VPL-HW50ES utilises an adapted version of Sony’s clever ‘Reality Creation’ technology which was developed for the company's EISA Award winning VPL-VW1000ES 4K home cinema projector. The technology ‘Reality Creation’ employs an originally developed digital signal processing algorithm to restore any information lost when packaging from original content to disc, recreating high quality, colour-rich, full HD images...
Sony announces full HD 3D home cinema projector, the VPL-HW50ES
High brightness of 1,700 lumens has been achieved by improving the light efficiency of the lamp and optimising the optical block, added Sony further. Together with a new Bright Cinema and Bright TV Mode, the VPL-HW50ES achieves 30 per cent greater brightness than the previous model without any loss in colour reproduction.
Sony’s new contrast enhancer technology and optimised Advanced Iris 3 algorithm combine to give the projector a dynamic contrast ratio of more than 100,000:1. The contrast enhancer works by analysing each scene and then automatically optimising contrast in real-time by compensating for dark and bright parts of the image. Additional features such as Sony’s 3D crosstalk reduction system and SXRD panel technology result in 3D images which are stunningly detailed and high in definition.
“The earlier launch of the VPL-HW30ES set a high standard for the home projection market last year. With the announcement of the VPL-HW50ES, we’re confident that Sony has raised that bar again, setting a new benchmark for home cinema projection,” said Mr. Satoru Munetaka, Deputy General Manager, Professional Solution Division, Sony India “ HW50ES has an “Reality Creation “function using Sony unique algorism technology to reproduce “real HD picture”. We are sure end user can enjoy true vivid and crisp picture than ever
The VPL-HW50ES also features a number of functionality upgrades that make it more user-friendly. These include a built-in 3D sync transmitter, a wider lens shift that makes its vertical shift range become +/- 71 per cent and whisper-quiet fan noise suppressed to a mere 21dB, claims the official statement.
Sony has priced the VPL-HW50ES at Rs 2,59,900 and is available in black and white colours, across India through all authorized distributors.
In September this year, Sony announced a new home theatre projector - the VPL-BW120S. The projector can be placed close to a wall or screen without the need to mount it. According to an official statement by Sony, the projector is capable of projecting a large viewing area - equivalent to a 100-inch - screen from as little as 1.34 metres away, while maintaining image fidelity and brightness.
Using 3LCD display technology, the VPL-BW120S reproduces picture with a brightness output of 2600 lumens (on high lamp mode) at WXGA (1280 x 800) native resolution. It also has a high contrast ratio of 4000:1 for colour reproduction and 12-bit 3D gamma correction. Sony claims that it achieves uniform image colour and brightness that extends right to the corners of the screen.
