The 4K video projector scene continues to hot up with the imminent release of a trio of new Sony SRXD native 4K models. Topping the new line-up is the VPL-VW870ES, a laser light engine model rated at 2,200 lumens, with an All Range Crisp Focus (ARC-F) 18-piece all glass lens to ensure clarity into the corners of the image. The addition of a Digital Focus Optimiser “provides refined image quality and accurate focus without distortion.”

It’s joined by the VPL-VW570ES, an 1,800 lumens lamp-based model, with Picture Position Memory to change the settings for 16:9 and Cinemascope, and the VPL-VW270ES, an entry-level beamer (pictured below).

All three come with improved 4K Motionflow, dynamic iris, HDR10 support and demand for 4K/60p inputs. Both the VPL-VW570ES and the VPL-VW270ES come in black and white colours and combine a compact size with 2.06 zoom and wide lens shift.

Sony is also hoping to attract the attention of gamers, as well as cinephiles. “A growing number of our customers are not only using our home cinema projector range to enjoy the latest blockbusters in their living rooms, but are also enjoying immersive 4K visuals powered by the latest generation of video game consoles,” says Christopher Mullins, Product Manager.

“All three of our new models feature a new input lag reduction mode which dramatically improves the performance of the display reaction speed to ensure gamers can enjoy the best possible experience alongside the breathtakingly detailed image quality they have come to expect.”

The VPL-VW570ES and the VPL-VW270ES will be available from October, while the VPL-VW870ES ships in November.
