There are also LCD projectors, such as Epson's EH-LS12000B, that use pixel shift technology applied to native full HD chipsets to create a 4K effect (although this approach is not supported by the CTA or any other consumer agency like real 4K). Perhaps thanks to the new SXRD chip, native 4K images look even more detailed, dense, three-dimensional and sharper than in any of Sony's previous entry-level and even mid-range 4K SXRD projectors. I have had an SXRD projector based on Sony lamps in my multimedia room for years, but I realized that I used my flat screen more than the projector. In fact, the XW5000ES, backed by the processing prowess of Sony's Reality Creation system and a digital focus optimization system that uses digital processing to compensate for possible lens focus errors, offers the best visualization of the benefits of 4K resolution we've seen in any projector with a healthy six-figure cost.
Despite being the cheapest 4K laser projector in Sony history, the XW5000ES continues to deliver beautifully cinematic and detailed images. In addition to the XW7000ES, Sony is introducing two additional laser-based 4K SXRD home theater models. Compatibility with HDR10+ and, especially, with Dolby Vision, is not common in the world of projectors, to be fair, and Sony hasn't adopted HDR10+ for its television business either. Sony has introduced for the first time a support of at least 120 Hz with a resolution of 1080p in one of its projectors, which will be much appreciated by serious gamers who don't want to miss enemies between frames.
While it's inevitable that you'll have to accept one or two commitments in exchange for Sony delivering a full 4K laser projector at this price, those commitments are ultimately frustrated by the happy impact that the combination of XW5000ES laser lighting and exceptional X1 Ultimate processing has on the immediate and long-term thrill of a movie night. Starting with the fact that, despite their affordability by the standards of Sony 4K laser projectors, it still benefits from the brand's new X1 Ultimate processing. Before the XW5000ES, Sony's basic 4K SXRD projectors, such as last year's VW290ES (VW325ES in the US). (USA), were based on lamp technology rather than laser technology.
Sony was the first company to introduce a native 4K home cinema projector and it still has one of the most complete model ranges. So we hope that these commitments aren't enough to stop the XW5000ES from joining Sony's excellent 4K projector series. There are several DLP laser projectors priced lower than Sony, which, with support from the U.S. Consumer Technology Association.
In the US, they would claim that they are 4K projectors, despite having to use “double flicker” technology to achieve a 4K image instead of carrying native 3840 x 2160 matrices of DLP digital mirror devices. This type of support is not yet common in the world of projectors, but it is something that a projector of the XW5000ES level would have to deal with now. The Sony VPL-PHZ60 is a compact, affordable projector that emits 6,000 ANSI lumens and is an excellent choice for conference rooms, places of worship and conference spaces that don't have much to spend.
