New Native 4K Projector Delivers Superior Image Quality to Wider Audience

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 5, 2015 (CES Booth #14200) – Sony Electronics unveiled today the new full 4K VPL-VW350ES projector, broadening its home theater projector line-up. The VPL-VW350ES is Sony’s latest product to deliver a true 4K experience, offering four times the resolution of Full HD with a 4K native resolution (4,096 x 2,160).
“With our 4K projection expertise, Sony is unrivalled in our ability to offer breathtaking image quality,” said Toshifumi Okuda, Sony Electronics Deputy President. “The VPL-VW350ES enables us to deliver the very best home cinema experience to even more of our customers.”
Outstanding Image Quality and Easy Connectivity
The VPL-VW350ES uses Sony’s 4K SXRDTM panel technology to achieve high resolution images without compromising deep contrast and fast motion capabilities. It also incorporates Sony’s exclusive TRILUMINOSTM technology, an enhanced optical engine design which gives rich color reproduction offering pure, bold colors. This works in conjunction with the projector’s 1,500 lumens brightness to engineer a wider color space for more vibrant tones and increased precision. Motionflow™ picture technology also delivers clearer images when watching fast-paced, sporting action. Additionally, the projector also comes with low latency mode for gamers, as well as a set of easy to control options for enhanced home automation capability.
The VPL-VW350ES supports the latest connectivity standards through HDMI 2.0** and HDCP 2.2, enabling users to enjoy the latest 4K content services from Sony, Netflix and Amazon Instant Video.
Installation Friendly
The VPL-VW350ES provides added installation flexibility thanks to the projector’s compact size and front air exhaust cooling system, allowing for a wide range of set-up opportunities. The projector uses a powered 2.06x zoom 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 synchronization stability and coverage.
** YCbCr 4:2:0 / 8bit
Pricing and Availability
The VPL-VW350ES will be available starting January 2015 for under $10,000 at Sony stores and other authorized dealers nationwide.

OK a couple of notes from Art at Projector Reviews:


-"As expected, Sony sees this as more of a media room/ living room/ bonus room projector than one for a dedicated theater. That’s in part because there’s no dynamic iris to improve black level performance."

-"Sony is announcing that if you purchase a VPL-VW350ES in January or February, there is an introductory promotion – you can buy the projector for $7999!"
