Sony VPL-VW1000ES 4K SXRD 3D Home Theater Projector Preview

 

Sony's new VPL-VW1000ES 4K home theater projector doesn't look like an air handler. No, it's elegant, as you'd expect for a $25,000 product with 4K upscaling for 2D and 3D & gazillion:1 contrast ratio

Sony VPL-VW1000ES 4K SXRD 3D Projector: Take 2

 

In our February 2012 issue, we published an exclusive first look at Sony's new top-of-the-line projector. In addition to stunning performance with conventional, high-defintion, consumer material, the VPL-VW1000 employs 4K imaging chips, offering four...

If you’re shopping in this price range for a new projector, the Sony VPL-VW1000 should definitely be on your short list. If 3D is not an important target on your radar, that’s all you need to know. If you’re big on 3D, you need to accept the fact that...

Sony VPL-VW1000ES 4K SXRD Front Projector Reviewed

 

Sony had been at the forefront of the 4K movement, and the VPL-VW1000ES 4K projector is the company's biggest offering in that regard. Andrew Robinson took the projector to task and was shocked by what he discovered.

As a person who has worked with 4K as director from capture to exhibition, I know the benefits it provides viewers and professionals as a format. Because of this, I hold out hope for its eventual release into the home markets. Because of what I know...

Sony VPL-VW1000ES 4K SXRD Projector

 

But the competition is fierce, and to stand out in the crowd, manufacturers are constantly on the lookout for the next big thing. True, 3D is still on its run as the NBT of the decade. Beyond that, 4K video lurks, waiting for its time in the spotlight.

With sub-$10,000 projectors offering the sort of performance they do today, the high-end home theater market is reaching for new worlds to conquer. 4K projection appears to be the obvious answer, and the Sony VPL-VW1000ES delivers the goods—at least in...

Things could hardly be looking better for the video projector fan. The quality you can get today for under $10,000—or even under $5,000—is astonishing.

Sony VPL-VW1000ES

 

I'm just dazzled by this projector. I thought it was outstanding when I first saw it at CEDIA '11. The VPL-VW1000ES projector (pre-production) had some issues back then, but the overall potential was obvious. At the CES show in January, it was even...

Once again, Sony provides exceptional pixel/panel alignment capabilities. Adjustments can be done automatically, or manually (over 100 zones, I believe), in increments of about 1/10th of a pixel. Now remember, this is a 4K projector, so that's a lot...

So looking beyond the deep blue waters it is hard to imagine the future and just how much better it possibly could get from here. The 1000ES has surpassed all of my expectations. Sure many will say it is expensive but when has being on the cutting edge...

Sony doesn't mention that this projector doesn't support external anamorphic lens future. Zooming is not the same as external anamorphic lens. I hope Sony will fix this, otherwise pro users will be disappointed.

4K is the future

No support for anamorphic lens with 4K resolution

Sony 4K Projector

 

I just installed the Sony projector. It is a large step up from my prior Qualia 004, but the build quality is not nearly as good as the Qualia, giving a much cheaper overall look and feel. My biggest disappointment is to just have purchased such an...
