Sony’s First Ever 4K Home Theatre Projector Shoots Super Resolution For Super Cash

4K video might be our inevitable future, but for now it’s prohibitively expensive and rarely available. Sony’s taking care of the latter part with its new VPL-VW1000ES projector — four times the resolution of 1080p (!) for mega, mega bucks.

Sony’s many-charactered projector has some serious eyeball muscle: 2000 lumens of brightness, the aforementioned insanely high output, and a lens capable of beaming out a 200-inch image. This sounds great! Except it costs “under” $US25,000, which probably means very, very close to $US25,000. If you’re a person with $US25,000 to spend on a projector, your retinas will be tickled. Well, at least they will be when you can find 4K video to play. Which might be a bit of a wait. At least the thing is gorgeous to look at in the meantime. [Sony]
