Following on from the arrival of the first 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray film releases by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Sony has announce it is bringing 4K HDR capability to its VPL-VW320ES home cinema projector.
Following the projector’s launch at IFA 2015, Sony is offering a new firmware update to ensure customers are getting the best possible image quality from their investment.
Sony says the upgrade shows its commitment to developing HDR support and ultimate image quality across its home cinema portfolio.
The VPL-VW320ES is now the third Sony home cinema projector in the existing range – after the VPL-VW5000ES and VPL-VW520ES – to support the 4K HDR format.
Sony says cinema enthusiasts will now get the opportunity to experience total immersion through the imagery displayed from their VPL-VW320ES projector, by enjoying HDR content with a high contrast ratio.
HDR is designed to offer the closest representation of the reality our eyes see every day, with greater detail, high contrasts, increased colour depth, brighter highlights and deeper blacks.
Thomas Issa, product manager at Sony Professional Solutions Europe, says: “We always want to provide our customers with the best possible image quality from our market leading digital cinema solutions, which is why we’re thrilled to announce this latest firmware update.
“With 4K fast becoming the new standard in broadcast and film, our customers increasingly expect to see this detailed crystal clear imagery reflected in their living rooms. In line with our other 4K HDR solutions offering, such as our BRAVIA screens and by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment´s upcoming 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray film releases, we’re pleased to extend this future proofed technology to the VPL- VW320ES.”
Sony has also developed a new unified control protocol for its projector range, enabling intuitive and easy integration when various models are used within the same installation.
The firmware update is available by the end of May for existing and new customers here.
