At this week’s CEDIA 2015 expo, Sony is showing off their new home theater projectors with native 4K to Full HD 3D resolution. Both the VPL-VW665ES and VPL-VW365ES models, available this month, include support for HDCP 2.2 copy-protected content as well as HDMI 2.0.

The higher-end VPL-VW665ES is compatible with HDMI input of HDR content (supported by HDMI 2.0a), with a dynamic contrast ratio of 300,000:1.

As far as 3D support, both projectors include a built-in RF 3D transmitter for industry-standard 3D glasses and a strong wireless signal for wider coverage.

The VPL-VW665ES and VPL-VW365ES use SXRD panels to provide a true native 4K picture with no artificial pixels, with Sony’s proprietary TRILUMINOS engine design for accurate color output, and Motionflow for fast moving imagery.

The VPL-VW365ES retails for $9,999, while the VPL-VW665ES carries an MSRP of $14,999. A less expensive Full HD model, the VPL-HW65ES, retails for $3,999.

Sony also introduced the VPL‑W5000ES 5,000 lumens 4K SXRDTM laser light source projector, the company’s reference-quality unit with 4K resolution, HDR support, BT.2020 color gamut, and full coverage of the DCI color space. The projector will be available Spring 2016 with a list price of $60,000.
