Sony has unveiled a next-gen Ultra Short Throw 4K SXRD laser projector at CES 2018. Part of its LifeSpace UX range, the LSPX-A1 sports a faux marble top, half mirror finished aluminum frame and wooden shelf; it’s the nearest we’ve seen to pure designer furniture in the category.

Ideal for media rooms and living environments, the LSPX-A1 can cast an image up to 120-inches, when placed 246mm from a wall. In addition to 4096 x 2016 resolution, it supports HDR and is rated at 2500 lumens. The Z-Phosphor laser light source has a lifespan of (at least) 20,000 hours, so no maintenance is required. The unit measures 1,255 × 559 × 470 mm (w/h/d).

The sound system, which is ingeniously integrated, features two Advanced Vertical Drive Technology tweeters, a proprietary glass tube speaker driver design, plus three conventional mid-range L/C/R speakers and integrated subwoofer. There are separate listening modes for movies and music. Power output is rated at 3 x 23w plus 50w to the sub.

Connections comprise three HDMI inputs, all of which support HDCP 2.2; Ethernet LAN, RS-232C, a 12v trigger. Integrators should note that it can be ceiling mounted, if required.

The LSPX-A1 is scheduled to ship into the US market this spring, priced at $30,000.
