Sony brings 4K HDR to third home cinema projector26 April 2016
Sony has announced it is bringing 4K HDR capability to its VPL-VW320ES home cinema projector with a new firmware update. This makes the VPL-VW320ES the third Sony home cinema projector in the existing range, after the VPL-VW5000ES and VPL-VW520ES, to support the 4K HDR format.
“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,” said 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 offering, such as our BRAVIA screens and by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment´s upcoming 4K UHD 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, which enables various models to be used within the same installation.
