Why is everyone so wound up over Ultra HD and 4K? On the surface, the answer seems obvious. For starters, by its very nature, a 4096p image provides about four times as much resolution as a 1920p x 1080p. Conversely, there must be a point where pixels are no longer noticed regarding a home theater system so that purchasing more of them at outrageous prices isn’t worth it anymore. Certainly, 3D is richer thanks to 4K since it increases the resolution for the ultimate TV viewing experience.

The Ultra HD Home Cinema Projector

Rather than simply incorporating an upscale version of 1080p, Sony integrated an all-out 4K foundation when it built the first authentic Ultra HD product available to consumers. In 2012, Sony launched the VPL-VW1000ES home cinema projector using technologies that were initially developed for its commercial projector line. Without a doubt, the VPL-VW1000ES follows the DCI (Digital Cinema Initiative) requirements, which employs a somewhat different resolution (4096p x 2160p) than those of the Ultra HD TVs.

In no way are they related to JVC’s 4K branded projectors including the DLA-X55R, DLA-X95R, and DLA-X75R. These projectors produce a true Full HD image while utilizing pixel-shifting panel technology (referred to as e-shift2) to generate a better detailed, textured picture.

Benefits of the Sony VPL-VW1000ES Home Cinema Projector
– Built-in UHD 8.8 million pixel SXRD panel
– Recognizes Ultra HD content over HDMI
– Displays content natively
– Up-converts any incoming source
– Produces genuine Ultra HD resolution 


The bottom line is – how much does resolution actually matter? 4K is pushing to totally eliminate the pixel altogether. Therefore, the goal is to create an image that appears like a natural, seamless whirl of colors as opposed to a typical computer generated image. Get ready – 4K Ultra HD is the future.
