This Projector Sits Six Inches Away From Your Wall And Makes a 100″ Viewing Area
I don’t think this is quite as cool as LG’s 4mm thick “wallpaper” TV, but you could say this one’s even thinner. Sony has just announced the VPL-VZ1000ES, a native 4K HDR Ultra Short Throw home theatre.
This latest laser light source projector is High Dynamic Range (HDR) compatible with native 4K resolution and can be positioned as little as six inches away from the wall, yet cast an 254cm (100 inch) image.
The VPL-VZ1000ES is approximately 925 x 494 x 219mm in size and weighs about 35kg. This is around 40% smaller than the currently available Sony VPL-GTZ1 4K ultra short throw. Although that sizing still looks like twice the length of a Xbox One S and just as thick. So it’s still pretty hefty.
Despite its size and lower price, the VPL-VZ1000ES generates 2,500 lumens of colour light output, 25% brighter than the VPL-GTZ1. The VPL-VZ1000ES projector’s Z-Phosphor laser light source hits peak brightness much quicker than conventional projector lamps. Brightness and colour accuracy are also maintained longer, reducing the inconvenience of lamp replacement.
It is the ideal projector for large display sizes in small spaces, as well as locations with high ceilings. And since the projector is mounted in front rather than behind the viewers, there are no issues with shadows or obstructions from ceiling lights or fans. You can turn any wall into a life-sized window to another world. For modern houses and apartments with large windows and limited wall space, a drop down screen in front of the window enables great viewing of TV, movies and sports. When the show is over, raise the screen, and once again enjoy your view.
The VPL-VZ1000ES ultra short throw 4K HDR home theatre projector is available now for an SRP of NZ$32,999.
