Sony prepares ultra high-end Bravia projector

updated 01:10 pm EDT, Tue August 21, 2007

Sony Bravia VPL-VW60

An extremely high-end Bravia SXRD projector is set to release soon from Sony Japan. A successor to the VW50, the VPL-VW60 supports the full range of HD resolutions, including the 24, 50 and 60 framerates of 1080p. It also boasts twin HDMI inputs, and crucially, a massive 35,000:1 contrast ratio -- well in excess of most projectors in the same range. The VW50 can only achieve 15,000:1.

The VW60 uses a 200W mercury lamp, and produces approximately 22dB of noise; the projector is said to be so powerful, though, that Akihabara News reports it was used by Japanese movie theaters to screen Sony's "Spiderman 3." It should be released commercially on September 20th, and cost 441,000 yen ($3,851).
