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 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...

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.

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...

Offering four times the resolution of Full HD, the Sony VPL-VW1000ES projector brings the clarity of 4K digital cinema to the home for the first time

Astonishing 4K video quality ; Great upscaling of Full HD ; Deep, immersive 3D

No native 4K movie content ; Stratospheric price tag ; No digital still card reader

With this revolutionary projector, Sony offers a glimpse of the (video) world of tomorrow. Even with caveats about 4K content (you can’t buy any) and that withering price tag (you can’t afford it), the significance of its performance can’t be denied.

Those seeking the visual equivalent of fine-dining are traditionally best served at a 4K digital cinema. An eight-million pixel image, spread large and bristling with detail, is a feast for the eyes befitting the planet's premiere cinemas. But now...

Astounding resolution; 4K upscaling for Blu-ray and other sources; stylish design; low operating noise; high quality optics

No source of commercial 4K video content; expensive when viewed primarily as a 2K projector

Recommended!

Ladies and gentlemen, the 4k AV era has arrived. Kind of.

Brilliant 3D pictures ; 4K images look insanely good ; Upscaled 2D images much better than expected

Hardly any native 4k content right now ; Black levels not as good as those from JVC’s latest projectors ; Limited colour management

Terrific with the very limited 4K2K material available, but expensive as a conventional projector

4K2K capability ; strong contrast performance ; crisp detail ; impressive build ; ease of set-up ; quiet in use

Lack of 4K2K material ; odd choice of panel ratio ; struggles with DVD ; high price
