Sony has announced an HDR (High DynamicRange) firmware update for its VPL-VW320ES 4K home cinema projector. The upgrade will make the VPL-VW320ES the third Sony home cinema projector, after the VPL-VW5000ES and VPL-VW520ES, to support 4K HDR. Benefits of the HDR update will include superior contrast, increased colour depth and brighter highlights from HDR content, such as 4K Blu-ray.

“We always want to provide our customers with the best possible image quality from our market leading digital cinema solutions, which is why we’re thrilled to announce this latest firmware update,” says Thomas Issa, Product Manager at Sony Professional Solutions Europe. “With 4K fast becoming the new standard in broadcast and film, our customers increasingly expect to see this detailed crystal clear imagery reflected in their living rooms. In line with our other 4K HDR solutions, such as our BRAVIA screens and by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment´s upcoming 4K ULTRA HD Blu-ray film releases, we’re pleased to extend this future proofed technology to the VPL- VW320ES.”

Sony has also developed a new unified control protocol for its projector range, enabling intuitive and easy integration when various models are used within the same installation. The VW320ES HDR firmware will be made available online at the end of May.

Sony 4K projectors are distributed by Marata Vision. For more stories aboput Marata Vision’s 4K projector offerings, visit our partner page here.
