Sony has expanded its home cinema projector offering with its new 4K VPL-VW300ES, showcased for the first time at IFA.

The device offers 4K native resolution (4,096×2,160), giving the viewer an immersive experience. The VPL-VW300ES uses Sony’s 4K SXRDTM panel technology to achieve high resolution images without the need to compromise between deep contrast and fast motion capabilities.

The VPL-VW300ES incorporates Sony’s proprietary TRILUMINOS technology, an enhanced optical engine design which gives rich colour reproduction. This works in conjunction with the projector’s 1,500 lumens brightness to engineer a wider colour space for more vibrant tones and increased precision.

Motionflow picture technology also serves to deliver clearer, less blurry images when watching fast-paced, cinematic action. The projector also comes with low latency mode for gamers and a set of easy to control options for enhanced home automation capability.

The VPL-VW300ES supports the latest connectivity standards through HDMI 2.0** and HDCP 2.2, enabling users to enjoy up-to-date 4K content services.

The VPL-VW300ES’s compact size provides added installation flexibility thanks to the projector’s front air exhaust cooling system, allowing a wide range of set-up opportunities.

The projector uses a 2.06 zoom powered lens with a wide shift range, which removes the requirement for additional platform extensions in ceiling mounts. A built-in RF 3D transmitter makes it easy to provide further adaptability with a strong wireless signal for wider coverage, 3D synchronisation stability and coverage.

Aydin Tolan, business head, visual presentation solutions, Sony Professional Solutions MEA said: "Throughout the market we’re seeing real enthusiasm for 4K, which delivers striking picture quality exactly as the director or creator intended.

"Capturing everything from incredible sporting events like the FIFA World Cup to award winning films such as this year’s Palme d’Or-winner, Winter Sleep, there is no other company than Sony capable of delivering the full native 4K ‘lens to living room’ solution. The VPL-VW300ES enables more consumers to discover this true immersive quality in the comfort of their own home.”

The VPL-VW300ES is available in black from October 2014.
