VPL-VW885ES joins the line of Sony's true HDR projectors with true cinema quality images, creating an unforgettable home entertainment experience

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- (CEDIA Booth #4935) – Today, Sony Electronics announced pricing and availability details on its newest true 4K HDR laser home theater projector, delivering superior picture quality equipped with the latest innovative technologies. Armed with 2,000 lumens of brightness, Infinite Dynamic Contrast with real-time laser light level control and 20,000 hours of lamp life, the new VPL-VW885ES delivers an immersive yet whisper-quiet environment for an unrivaled home cinema-viewing experience in a compact chassis.

Staying true to the cinema aficionados who seek resolution only found in high-end, professional 4K movie theaters, the VPL-VW885ES is designed with the breathtaking picture quality that derives from Sony's integrated native 4K resolution and superior High Dynamic Range (HDR). To present an immersive, vibrant picture in any environment, the VPL-VW885ES employs the TRILUMINOSTM DISPLAY which provides a much broader color range, reproducing more tones and textures than a standard projector system. The acclaimed Reality Creation technology, provides a crisper picture quality and enhanced detail while not sharpening picture noise, resulting in a true viewing experience of fine detail across all of your favorite movie genres. Sony's MotionflowTM feature, which displays smooth, sharp motion that captures the natural movement across a display, now enhances both 4K and HD content. The VPL-VW885ES also equips two 18 Gbps HDMI inputs that support HDCP 2.2., to allow access to the highest frame rates and bit depths of 4K resolution content.

Ideal for those who seek to design the perfect cinema-viewing environment, the VPL-VW885ES operates at whisper-quiet level that does not interfere with the enjoyment of quiet movie scenes. Its compact size allows installation in smaller rooms while still displaying an impactful, large screen view. In addition, the Picture Position memory registers provide one-button access to different aspect ratio format presets, allowing the VPL-VW885ES to quickly adjust between 16:9, 2.35:1, as well as other aspect ratios. Movie buffs and enthusiasts using ultra-wide screens will appreciate the vertical stretch compatibility for 4K signals (V-stretch for 4K), as well as for HD content, that can be employed with 3rd-party anamorphic lenses to fully utilize the display area.

Sony is very pleased to announce that Kaleidescape, creators of award-winning Strato 4K Ultra HD high-dynamic-range movie player, will partner with Sony to provide new promotional offers for consumers who purchase a Sony 4K HDR projector and Kaleidescape 4K player. Offers include movie bundles valued up to $350 and are available to consumers that become owners of both a Sony 4K projector and a Strato player between September 1, 2017 and March 31, 2018.
