Full HD 3DHome Cinema Projector by Sony: VPL-HW50S

Are you considering a home-theater upgrade that includes the entire modern home cinema lineup of: 3D, High-Definition (including 4K resolution support), and Projection onto a large screen?  If so, you may want to consider something like the latest Sony VPL-HW50ES  Full HD 3D Cinema Projector.

This is one serious home cinema projector, and reflects the leading edge of home entertainment possibilities from Sony.  We recently blogged about the latest (and awesome) Sony 4K XBR-84X900 TV for Sale (if price is no object), and this new projection system is another alternative to be considered.  Although this projector is not a “native 4K” (resolution) TV, it is capable of up-scaling standard 1080p high-definition sources (aka, “2K” resolution) to 4K (level of detail) via Sony’s “Reality Creation” super-resolution function; this technology essentially attempts to “fill in the details” during upscaling and should help preserve sharp, crisp details even on very large projection screens.

What is the Price?

Although the official price has not been released, sources around the web are expecting this new 3D projector to be offered for sale with a price just under $4,000 (US) with one spare bulb included.  The official numbers should be out soon.  Seeing that the new “Reality” engine in this new projector has its origins in Sony’s VPL-VW1000ES projector (a native-4K-resolution device which costs nearly $20,000), this projector should bring your home cinema projection experience to “near 4k native experience) at a fraction of the cost.

Other Features

  • High Brightness (1,700 lumens) with faithful colour reproduction even in well-lit rooms.
  • Contrast Enhancer Function that automatically adjusts the contrast for optimum viewing (100,000:1 Dynamic Contrast)
  • Motionflow technology allows the VPL-HW50ES/B to display twice as many images per second to reproduce smoother, sharper motion.
  • SXRD Panel Technology for sharper, dot-free images up to 240 frames per second. The result is stunningly detailed, high-definition 3D images that you believe you can reach out and touch.
  • Dynamic Lamp Control Technology for 3D: When each of the shutters on your 3D glasses opens, Dynamic Lamp Control Technology automatically boosts the brightness (approximately 3x brighter) in the image to that eye, maximizing the picture’s impact and the lamp’s efficiency. This means that you will not lose any brightness and attain the optimal visual experience from the comfort of your own home.
  • Extremely Low Fan Noise (21dB) that means the VPL-HW50ES/B runs very quietly.

Sony 4K XBR-84X900 TV for Sale : Price is no object

We previously (on this blog) talked about how the new 4K TVs and HDMI 1.4 would be on sale soon, and that was back in December of 2010.  Time flies, and not quite 2 years later, Sony is now offering a fantastic and very large (84″!) 4K resolution LED TV that is perhaps within the price range of a few home theater aficionados.

Sony has priced its upcoming XBR-84X900 TV (84″ 4K LED) at an initial list price of $24,999. See our prior blog (link in first paragraph) for an image showing how 4K compares to normal high-definition (1920P and/or 720P); this new image format offers an unbelievable and spectacular 3840 x 2160-pixel resolution, and with a 7-foot diagonal massive screen, those pixels are going to make your giant-sized images look nearly perfect!

Some of the modern high-definition digital films and TV shows have been produced in 4K (or higher) resolution already.  Shows like PBS’s Wallander series were shot using the awesome (USA Made) Red (brand) professional digital cinema cameras, and more content is certainly on the way.  So, with cameras like that available, you too could also shoot your own seriously professional-grade home-movies (and, perhaps even produce an independent film); plus, coupled with this new Sony XBR-84X900 TV, you will have a way to view such incredible 4KTV media in its native resolution: i.e., AWESOME! 

Sony will start taking pre-orders for the TV beginning Thursday, September 6th, but it won’t actually be available until November.  If you happen to be fortunate enough to have a home-theater facility (already, or in the planning stages) that could benefit from this professional-quality 4K ultra-high-definition technology and you want to get this type of setup in place by the end of 2012, contact your Cleveland Home Theater and Sony 4K Experts – HomeSound – to discuss getting on the waiting-list for one.

The Sony XBR-84X900 4K TV will also scale your existing 1080p content to 4K resolution.  And, this device is also full 3D with passive 3D glasses and includes a totally wild feature called “SimulView” (two-player gaming without split screens)!  This is one seriously awesome piece of technology from Sony.

Sony XBR-84X900 4K TV Features:

  • 84-inch (yes, 7 foot diagonal!), 4K LCD Panel
  • Dynamic edge lit, LED backlighting
  • Three-chip, 4K X-Reality Pro picture engine
  • 4K upscaling (from “normal” high-definition like 1080p, etc)
  • 10 Unit Live Speaker System
  • Passive Full HD 3D Capable
  • Network connectivity with the full Sony Entertainment Network services suite

Is a Sony 4K TV in your (near) future?  One way or another, this TV and technology in general is something to keep an eye on.  Sure, it is early in the 4K TV lifecycle, but with backwards compatibility and some great opportunities where you can already enjoy the full resolution capabilities of this TV (like, though filming with those awesome “Red” brand cameras), this is bound to be a TV that you could get some serious entertainment out of while you have the ultimate home theater setup anywhere near you!
