Sony recently launched its latest home theatre front projector for the custom install market at CEDIA Expo 2013. The VPL-VW1100ES 4K front projector joins the 4K VPL-VW500ES and VPL-HW55ES Full HD 3D home projectors as SXRD-based, large-format displays for the home. The latest projector is designed to bring the high quality, immersive images of a big screen cinema experience into the home.

The VPL-VW1100ES 4K home theatre projector is designed specifically to support the evolving 4K Ultra HD standards such as HDMI Specification Version 2.0 to accommodate 4K/60p content.

With 2,000 ANSI-lumens of brightness, the VPL-VW1100ES projector is suitable for screen sizes up to 300in. Sony's Advanced Iris3 technology enhances black levels and the device can achieve an 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast. The projector also offers a variety of installation options and includes dual triggers, a 2.1x motorised zoom, expanded lens shift, an RS232 interface, control over IP and compatibility with leading home automation systems.

In addition, the VPL-VW1100ES projector also uses Sony’s Reality Creation picture engine to dramatically enhance all video content regardless of source. Furthermore, the VPL-VW1100ES has an exclusive upscaling algorithm designed for “Mastered in 4K” Blu-ray Discs from Sony Picture Entertainment. The device can also display Full HD 3D movies, as well as 2D and 3D anamorphic films.

The VPL-VW1100ES is available in Europe from November.
