World's most advanced Home Cinema Projector

Sony has revealed the new VPL W5000ES, a 5,000 lumens 4K SXRDTM laser light source projector. It is the first projector designed specifically for home cinema use that features 4K resolution powered by a laser light engine that provides 5,000 lumens of brightness, is compatible with High Dynamic Range (HDR), emulates the new BT.2020 color gamut, and covers the full DCI colour space. In layman’s terms, this quite possibly world’s the most advanced Home Cinema Projector that money can buy. It's expected to retail for about US$60,000.

Sony’s advanced SXRD panels are designed to produce outstanding native device contrast and when coupled with the laser light engine, the VPL-VW5000ES provides an infinite dynamic contrast ratio and 5,000 lumens of color light output. The VPL-VW5000ES covers the full DCI-P3 color gamut. By taking advantage of its professional calibration tools the projector allows the user to choose to emulate the BT.2020 color space, as well. This ensures compatibility with upcoming home video formats. And by bringing together high brightness, infinite dynamic contrast and the latest signal processing technology, the new projector provides compatibility with High Dynamic Range (HDR), enabling the viewer to see wider ranges of contrast and colors than ever before.

Sony's Advanced Motionflow feature reduces blur and maintains brightness while the new projector’s extremely fast imagers allow viewing of fast action content – especially sporting events – with great smoothness, even with 4K signals. The VPL-VW5000ES can be tilted as much as 30 degrees, allowing for flexible installations that take advantage of mirrors to place larger screens in smaller spaces, such as rear projection. Thanks to a newly developed liquid cooling system with low noise operation, the projector can also be located near viewers without impacting the enjoyment of a program's audio.

The light engine delivers a long operational life with a linear decrease in brightness, so the color shifts seen with traditional lamp wear are not expected. But if the color settings do shift over time the VPL-VW5000ES includes a built-in re-calibration function that can be used to test how much the projector has drifted from its original factory calibration and reset it.

The Sony VPL-VW5000ES is available for pre-order now and will be available in first quarter of 2016.
