Sony introduces 1080p HD projector

  • Tokyo (Japan) - Sony has unveiled its latest high definition projector, claiming a contrast ratio of 35,000:1.

    Using SXRD (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) technology, the new HD projection unit carries more than double the contrast of its predecessor, the VPL-VW50.

    The greater contrast ratio is attributed to the projector's use of Advanced Iris 2, a technology that more clearly regulated the amount of light going through the projector's lenses.

    The VW60 projects at a widescreen ratio of 16:9, has a maximum brightness of 1000 lumens, and uses a 200W high pressure mercury lamp.

    It contains one composite, S video, and component input, one analog RGB input, and two HDMI ports.  The maximum electric power consumption is 300W.

    The new projected launched in Japan this week at a price of around $3900, and is expected to come over the US within the next several months.
