Sony has introduced the VPL‑VW5000ES – a 5,000 lumens 4K SXRD laser light source projector. The VPL-VW5000ES covers the full DCI-P3 colour gamut. By taking advantage of its professional calibration tools the VPL-VW5000ES allows the user to choose to emulate the BT.2020 colour space, ensuring compatibility with upcoming home video formats. And by bringing together high brightness, infinite dynamic contrast and the latest signal processing technology, the VPL-VW5000ES provides compatibility with High Dynamic Range (HDR), enabling the viewer to see wider ranges of contrast and colours than ever before.
Sony’s VPL-VW5000ES projector – the ultimate home cinema projector.
Sony’s Advanced Motionflow feature is said to reduce blur and maintains brightness and VPL-VW5000ES’ extremely fast imagers allow viewing of fast action content – especially sporting events – with great smoothness, even with 4K signals. Along with HDR and BT.2020 capabilities, the VPL-VW5000ES also includes an HDMI input that is HDCP 2.2 compatible. That same input has enough bandwidth to accept 4K 60p signals up to YCbCr 4:4:4 8bit or YCbCr 4:2:2 12bit, thus helping to ensure that the VPL-VW5000ES is prepared to handle all types of video content now and in the future.
“The VPL-VW5000ES projector is truly the ultimate home cinema solution, joining an impressive line-up of Sony home theatre projectors specifically designed for the high-end installer market, like the VPL-GTZ1 and Lifespace UX´s LSPX-W1S Ultra Short Throw models,” said Thomas Issa, Product Manager at Sony Professional Europe. The VPL-VW5000ES will be available in Europe in the first quarter of 2016.
