TORONTO, Ontario -- Sony of Canada Ltd., Canada's leading electronic and computer products solutions provider for consumers and business, today announced the addition of two new 4K resolution projectors to its installation line-up -- the SRX-S110 and SRX-S105.
Based on Sony's revolutionary SXRD™ (Silicon Crystal Reflective Display) panel technology, which produces extremely high image contrast performance, they are designed for visualisation, simulation, command and control applications and organisations needing to display computer-generated images in ultra-high resolution.
All Sony projectors in the SXRD 4K range deliver a native resolution of 4K (4096 X 2160) pixels per colour, which is four times higher than that of High-Definition Television (HDTV). This means that for any given screen size, the pixels projected by the SRX-S105 and SRX-S110 are approximately 25 percent the size of pixels displayed by the best projectors currently available on the market. This ensures a more realistic on-screen image when viewed at close quarters. There is also no compromise in image quality with a contrast ratio of more than 1800:1 delivering rich and precise colour tonal reproduction, with a brightness of 10,000 ANSI lumens for the SRX-S110 and 5,000 ANSI lumens for the SRX-S105.
The SRX-S105 and SRX-S110 projectors feature a DVI input, enabling them to accept a wide range of signals up to WUXGA (1920 X 1200) as well as HD (1920 X 1080) and DC (2048 x 1080 pixels). Input signal resolutions of up to 4096 X 2160 pixels can be accommodated through the use of additional DVI (digital video interface) input boards.
The two new models complement Sony's existing 4K line-up that includes the SRX-R110CE and SRX-R105CE, launched in early 2005, which were designed to display high resolution content such as High-Definition and the newly endorsed 4K digital cinema format. When launched, these models were the world's first commercially-available 4K projectors.
"As soon as the SRX-R105C and SRX-R110C projectors were released, their resolution and picture quality quickly identified them as having numerous benefits over existing systems, and we have seen our installed base grow accordingly. The range has now been extended with the new S-series to provide a forward looking solution specifically tailored to high-end, IT-intensive applications," said Dave Schultz, Product Manager, Projectors, ASD Marketing, Broadcast Communication Solutions Group, Sony of Canada Ltd. "As computer-generated images continue to increase in resolution, there is an ever-increasing need for displays that combine higher resolution with faultless image quality. The SRX-S105 and SRX-S110 enable users to achieve the highest quality images without the need for multiple projector systems, thereby reducing both hardware and operational costs without compromising on quality."
The products' ability to show up to four separate HD images make this ideal for many applications, without the need for additional hardware.
