CES 2018 News: Sony launch new high-end 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector
The long and short of it
Sony has announced the launch of a new 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector (LSPX-A1), a new addition to the Life Space UX product offering and if you have approximately $30,000 spare, you can put your order in.
Through elegant design and the combination of two unique innovations - Ultra Short Throw Technology and the Advanced Vertical Drive Technology of the Glass Sound Speaker - LSPX-A1 seeks to provide a truly transformative cinematic experience with large screen 4K images and ‘amazing sound’ quality.
It can be set up from just 9.6 inches from the wall and the Ultra Short Throw technology of the LSPX-A1 provides an image up to 120 inches (diagonal) directly on a wall with the high brightness of 2500 lumens laser projection. Utilising Sony's unique 4K SXRD projection and HDR technology, LSPX-A1 produces native 4K resolution (4096 x 2160)
By building on the technology behind the Glass Sound Speaker and elevating the audio by adding 4 more speakers, LSPX-A1 lets users enjoy pure sound throughout the entire room, says Sony. Sony's unique Advanced Vertical Drive Technology from Glass Sound Speaker generates what’s described as crystal clear high frequency sound in 360 degrees by vibrating the two organic glass tweeters installed on the front legs. The addition of dynamic bass produced from a separate subwoofer and three midrange speakers (left, right, and centre) should fill the room with sound. The centre speaker, positioned in the rear of the device creates centrevibrant audio by reflecting on the wall to elevate the sound field.
With the engineered marble top, half mirror finished aluminium frame and wooden shelf, the LSPX-A1 looks for all the world like a stylish piece of furniture. The design of the rear cover allows for easy cable management to conceal connectors hidden within. In addition, the remote controller has been uniquely developed for the LSPX-A1 by re-examining the design of a conventional projector's remote control. The controller has minimal buttons with a complimentary design to fit with the high style look of LSPX-A1.
It will be available in Spring 2018, at least in the US.
