Sony brings incredible 3D cinema experience into the home

01 September 2010

VPL-VW90ES Home Projector allows movie fans to see stunning high quality images in 3D

VPL-VW90  

At the IFA conference in Berlin, Sony Professional today announced its first 3D home projector, the VPL-VW90ES, which gives movie fans the opportunity to enjoy an unrivalled 3D cinematic experience in the comfort of their own home. Based on the active glasses technology used in Sony’s 3D TV range, the VPL-VW90ES has been designed to deliver an optimal 3D experience that feels natural on the eyes.

To achieve the excellent image quality required in a home theatre environment, including true depth of colour and brightness, the VW90ES is equipped with Sony’s Advanced Iris 3 technology. This enables a dynamic contrast ratio of 150,000:1.

With the ability to project 3D in Full HD 1080p, the VPL-VW90ES features an upgraded SXRD 240Hz Panel which minimizes image distortion or “crosstalk.” The projector is also capable of taking 2D video and simulating 3D images, bringing new life to classic movies from the past and allowing a wide variety of video content to be enjoyed.

“The launch of our first 3D home projector marks the latest step in Sony realising its 3D World vision,” said Tak Nakane, product manager at Sony Professional. “From capturing images in 3D, through to the production and delivery stages, Sony is uniquely placed to deliver an incredible 3D viewer experience both at home and in the cinema. The projector also opens up another dimension for gamers too. People will be able to play a rapidly increasing number of 3D titles such as Gran Turismo 5, and Wip3out in crystal clear high definition, something we believe is going to appeal hugely to the gaming community.”

Key to the VPL-VW90ES is customisation. The projector is simple to setup and ideally suited to meet a wide range of installation configurations. Customers can personalise the projector depending on the content they are showing and the size of the room they are in, whether it be a small living room or large home theatre. The projector is quiet too, thanks to its incredibly low fan noise of just 22db0.

The projector will be available across Europe in November 2010.
