Sony to demonstrate 4K laser phosphor projector at CineEurope


Sony Digital Cinema 4K will preview a new HDR-ready projector with a long-lasting phosphor laser light source at CineEurope in Barcelona, June 20-22.

Pricing and availability for the new 4K laser phosphor projector are yet to be confirmed. Demonstrations will be held hourly by invitation during tradeshow hours. All audio systems for the Sony laser demonstrations are being provided by Alcons Audio

Sony Digital Cinema 4K is also inviting CineEurope delegates to “project themselves into the future.” Their high-contrast Crystal LED display system gives a hint of the possibilities for next-generation cinematic exhibition.

The innovative system uses individual display modules that can be seamlessly “tiled” with no visible gaps or borders. This allows creation of a huge, totally flat screen with virtually unlimited dimensions and aspect ratio to suit any size of auditorium.

A matrix of minute surface-mounted LEDs achieves an extremely high contrast ratio, whether the display is being viewed in light or dark environments. Totally eliminating the need for a projection booth, exhibitors can make improved use of their existing real estate or open screens in hitherto unsuitable spaces. And with a virtually 180-degree viewing angle, patrons can enjoy an uncompromised movie experience from every seat in the house.

“At Sony we’ve always had a clear picture how digital cinema is meant to be,” says David McIntosh, VP, Sony Digital Cinema 4K Solutions for Europe and the Americas. “Right from our introduction of the world’s first DCI-compliant 4K projector, Sony innovation has always been driven by a very clear goal—ultimate picture quality and even more unforgettable experiences for audiences. And at CineEurope this year we’re giving a taste of what tomorrow might look like for cinema owners.”
