Asia-Pacific, September 30, 2010 – Relish in the ultimate 3D cinematic visual experience in the comforts of your abode with Sony’s latest VPL-VW90ES 3D home projector, launched in Asia Pacific today. The VPL-VW90ES 3D home projector utilizing Sony’s active shutter 3D glasses, has reaped the benefits of Sony’s innovative technologies used in cinema-grade projectors such as Sony’s 24p True Cinema™ and 240Hz SXRD panel, to present its audience with a completely natural and immersive 3D viewing experience.
With the ability to project 3D in Full HD 1080p, the VPL-VW90ES features an upgraded SXRD panel and it is the first 3D projector with a high frame rate of 240Hz. The industry leading high frame rate works to minimize image distortion or “crosstalk” (double imaging), delivering an unrivalled 24p True Cinema™ 3D, as well as 2D high definition cinematic experience. Additionally, the projector uses a single Ultra High Performance (UHP) lamp that drives brightness of 1,000 ANSI lumens and delivers astounding sharpness, deep black levels thanks to Sony’s proprietary Advanced Iris 3™ technology to present an extraordinary dynamic contrast ratio of 150,000:1.
“Delivering on Sony’s promise of 3D innovation, Sony brings big-screen viewing into the living room with the VPL-VW90ES – the company’s first 3D home projector. Whether you are an armchair movie fan, home theatre enthusiast or gaming aficionado, prepared to be blown away by the visual spectacle created by the VPL-VW90ES 3D Home Projector, and experience home entertainment like never before. Sony has and will continue to push the possibilities of home entertainment technologies to redefine the audiovisual experience in the home,” said Mr. Tsuyoshi Nagata, General Manager for Presentation Display, Business & Professional Products, Sony Electronics Asia Pacific.
The projector is capable of taking 2D video and simulating 3D images, injecting new life to classic movies and games, allowing a wide variety of content to be enjoyed. The projector opens up another dimension for avid gamers with rapidly increasing number of 3D stereoscopic game titles such as WipEout™HD and MotorStorm™II on the PlayStation®3, in crystal clear high definition.
Key to the VPL-VW90ES is customization. The projector is simple to setup and ideally suited to meet a wide range of installation configurations. Customers can personalize the projector depending on the content they are showing and the size of the room they are in, whether it is a small living room or large home theatre. The stylish projector sports a black glossy piano finish and constructed to perfection. It is quiet too, thanks to its incredibly low fan noise of just 22dB. The VPL-VW90ES SXRD 3D home projector will be available in November 2010 in Asia Pacific through Sony’s authorized installers and specialty dealers. It will come equipped with two pairs of Sony’s active shutter 3D glasses and a built-in 3D transmitter. For more information on Sony’s projectors, please visit: pro.sony-asia.com/projector
