The VPL-VW870ES (above) is Sony’s flagship offering, with 2,200 lumens brightness and an 18-piece All Range Crisp Focus lens said to ensure high precision within a compact and lightweight design. Sony claims its Digital Focus Optimiser provides refined image quality and accurate focus without any distortion.

In the middle of the range sits the 1,800-lumens VPL-VQ570ES, which features Picture Position Memory to aid flexibility, while the VPL-VW270ES is Sony’s 4K HDR entry-level model.

The VPL-VW270ES will be Sony's most affordable 4K HDR projector yet

“A growing number of our customers are not only using our home cinema projector range to enjoy the latest blockbusters in their living rooms, but are also enjoying immersive 4K visuals powered by the latest generation of videogame consoles,” said Christopher Mullins, Product Manager at Sony Professional Solutions Europe.

“All three of our new models, from the affordable VPL-VW270ES, to the premium VPL-VW870ES feature a new input lag reduction mode which dramatically improves the performance of the display reaction speed to ensure gamers can enjoy the best possible experience alongside the breathtakingly detailed image quality they have come to expect.”

The VPL-VW570ES and the VPL-VW270ES will be available across Europe from October, while the VPL-VW870ES will begin shipping in November.
