Sony has announced its 4K Ultra Short Throw projector, that is able to turn a wall into a mighty 147-inch ultra high definition screen.
Usually, setting up a projector in your house involves measurements, mounts, and dedicated screens. Sony’s out to change all that with the Sony 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector ($50,000). Unlike most projectors, this one is housed in a lengthy case that’s worthy of display alongside the most upscale of furnishings, and uses a laser diode system to project a 4K Ultra High-Definition image up to 147-inches along any wall you set it up against. No installation, no fuss, just a huge, spectacular picture to immerse yourself in on movie nights.
Short throw projectors can sit extremely close to walls meaning they take up little space in a room plus they can be moved and easily resized.
Sony says this projector isn’t only about turning a wall into a cinema, it can also be used as an experimental way to enhance a room – displaying art, a virtual window and more.
The projector uses Sony’s Laser Light Source to ensure maximum brightness even at that high 4K resolution. This should also mean the projector lights will last up to ten times longer than traditional projector lamps, Sony says. Unlike other projectors the short throw smarts of this, Sony claims, mean it’s pretty much as easy to setup as dropping in front of the wall it’ll be used on.
It has 4 HDMI ports in the back for plugging in all your necessary tech gear. Could the Sony 4K Ultra be the future of television projection?
The Sony 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector is available for purchase through Sony -$50,000USD
