You don’t need a big room to have a big theater experience. EDG can put a big picture just about anywhere, using a short-throw or ultra-short throw projector.
Unlike traditional projectors, short-throw and ultra-short throw units don’t need to sit far back in the room to create larger-than-life images. These machines have a shorter “throw ratio,” a spec that describes the distance from the projector lens to the screen compared to the screen size.
When buying a projector, the throw ratio is something to take into consideration, since not all units will work in all settings. It will help to determine how far you need to place the projector from the screen—and if you have the space to do that.
Because short-throw and ultra-short throw projectors can sit so close to the screen, this isn’t as much of a concern. That placement also eliminates problems you find in larger settings, such as shadows and glare. The newly announced Sony VPL-VZ1000ES Ultra-Short Throw 4K HDR Home Theater Projector is perfect for all sorts of compact spaces. It can be placed as little as 6 inches from the wall and still deliver 100 inches of eye-popping 16:9 Ultra HD images.
When in use, the VPL-VZ1000ES commands attention, using a Z-Phosphor laser light source to crank 2,500 lumens of color light output. That coupled with Sony’s SXRD panels can produce stunning native 4K with 8.8 million pixels (4096 x 2160) and High Dynamic Range (HDR) content, which features brighter colors, a higher contrast, and more lifelike imagery overall.
Even when not in use, the VPL-VZ1000ES seems like something worthy of your space. No special mounts or soffit compartments are needed. Measuring 36-by-20-by-9 inches, it can sit out on the table, blend into the decor, or be used as quite the conversation piece. Just check out those fins!
In case you’re worried about firing up that projector, know that the VPL-VZ1000ES also has nine picture calibration modes and four HDMI inputs for connecting to Blu-ray and 4K Blu-ray players, media streamers, laptops, and more. It can be paired with several sources and a fixed screen, if you have the space. For smaller spots and multipurpose rooms, ask EDG about putting a drop-down screen on a motorized lift.
Sony will start selling the VPL-VZ1000ES Ultra-Short Throw 4K HDR Home Theater Projector in April, priced at $24,999. Contact EDG at (732) 650-9800 for purchase info and to learn more on how you can maximize entertainment in some of your smaller spaces.
