At Sony we’ve been at the cutting edge of Digital Cinema for over a decade, since launching the world’s first 4K integrated projection system in 2005. And today you’ll find our cinematic heritage in our Home Cinema projectors that use the same 4K SXRD™ panel technology featured in our professional Digital Cinema projectors that you’ll find in movie theatres all over the world.
When cinema projection went digital, Sony‘s Digital Cinema’s quality was approved by DCI (Digital Cinema Initiatives) in Hollywood, where the requirements for picture quality are set at a very high standard. Right from the start, Sony was the only manufacturer building 4K projectors with 4096×2160 resolution, while others stuck with lower-resolution 2K. This insistence on quality meant that cinemas wanting to screen movies with the highest possible picture quality quickly chose Sony 4K.
4K was just one of Sony’s Digital Cinema innovations. We developed our own unique panel technology, ensuring the highest possible contrast ratio. And that’s crucial in movie theatres, where films are shown in a dark environment.
This 4K SXRD (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) panel device is what made Sony Digital Cinema projectors very unique, bringing audiences the best possible picture quality in thousands of theatres worldwide. And today, Sony brings these same technologies to our family of 4K SXRD Home Cinema projectors. Now it’s time to enjoy the best picture quality in 4K resolution with the best contrast in your home.
