Every brand that wants to be known for their innovative technology goes to CES with the intent to wow in mind. There is no other reason to attend. If you want to go to CES and turn heads, then you better reinvent the wheel or at least come close. Sony did that this year. Boy did they ever. Their new Sony 4k projector — which comes with a $30,000 price tag — has everyone talking. And that is the point.
At the 2018 CES, the company unveiled the 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector (LSPX-A1). The LSPX-A1 looks like a TV stand and it is made to sit 9.6 inches from the wall onto that you’ll be projecting a 4K image on. The image from the LSPX-A1 is not only 4K, but it can span up to 120 inches. That’s bigger than your current TV. BY A LOT.
In terms of performance, Sony’s laser projector has 4K resolution, reaches a peak brightness of 2500 lumens, and is HDR-compatible. For 4K content, the projector is compatible with $99 Roku Ultra, a $179 Apple TV 4K, or your favorite 4K Blu-ray player to watch video “with unprecedented detail, color, and contrast.” No need for a soundbar for this projector either (And you shouldn’t for the extreme price of this projector). The Sony projector features built-in speakers with organic glass tweeters installed on the front legs of the frame. There’s a subwoofer underneath the unit and three midrange speakers (center, left and right) hidden inside that provide 360-degree audio. Making this just about the perfect viewing experience.
