While Ultra-HD projection is now available at lower prices thanks to various solutions, the use of genuine UHD or 4K panels is still relatively costly, though the main brand to do so, Sony, has been introducing true 4K models at ever more affordable prices. This VW760ES is up at $22,999, yet has proven the installation projector of choice for many home cinema installers in larger spaces, combining as it does the benefits of 2000 lumens bright- ness from an advanced laser-diode light source together with the same 4K SXRD panel technology found in Sony’s professional cinema projectors. Laser sources deliver far longer life than a bulb, while Sony’s MotionFlow and other image processing remain the industry’s best. For real ‘cinema at home’ bigscreen 4K quality, the VW760ES is simply stunning.
