Sony has 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 Theater projectors that use the same 4K SXRD™ panel technology featured in our professional Digital Cinema projectors that you’ll find in movie theaters all over the world.
When cinema projection went digital, Sony developed the 4K Cinema quality that 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 4096x2160 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. They developed their own unique panel technology, ensuring the highest possible contrast ratio. And that’s crucial in movie theaters, where films are shown in a dark environment.
These innovations, along with many more, are available to enjoy in your home whether you have a dedicated theater room or a room where you gather with family and friends to watch movies, sports or binge on TV.
