Details in a Japanese press release give insight into a new SXRD front projector from Sony, codenamed “Pearl”.
The VPL-VW50 projector will be 1080p native (1920×1080) with a contrast ratio of 5,000:1. The projector features a 200-watt mercury lamp, a low noise fan system claimed to run at just 22dB, a 1.8x zoom lens and dual HDMI inputs. No pricing has emerged yet, but we can guess that the price will be significantly lower than the critically-acclaimed VPL-VW100.
