Sony Does Better Than One and Only

Europe’s top a/v publications have awarded Sony “best product” prizes for its flagship 3D TV and 4K projector.

The European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) judged Sony’s Bravia KDL-55HX850 to be the top European 3D TV of 2012-13 and Sony’s VPL-VW1000ES projector the top high-end home theatre product of the year.

EISA is the largest editorial multimedia organisation in Europe, representing 50 special interest magazines, from audio and mobile electronics to video and photo, spanning 19 countries.

“Sony’s KDL-55HX850 is the ideal television for 3D movie fans,” the EISA judging panel said.

“The very fast response time of the panel and its ability to keep the two image channels separate means image quality is striking, with almost no crosstalk.

“Sony’s Cinema mode, meanwhile, ensures correctly-balanced colours straight out of the box, and black levels are excellent due to dimming technology that reduces the backlight in dark parts of the picture without a loss of shadow detail.

“As well as the superior 3D and 2D pictures, the unique lean-back stand provides a convenient, stylish viewing experience.”

Said the panel of the projector: “Home theatre diehards have keenly anticipated a true 4K projector and Sony’s VPL-VW1000ES is that dream given form.

“This inaugural native 4K home theatre projector offers a full 4096х2160 pixel resolution and is based on Sony’s professional cinema solution.

“At its core are three new SXRD matrix panels capable of delivering a claimed 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio through its specially developed 2.1x zoom lens.

“As you would expect for a projector of this resolution, its picture processing is exceptional, upscaling Full HD input to fill its 4K capacity with seamless efficiency.

“Your favourite movies have never looked so vivid, detailed and realistic – this is the projector of the future, available today.”

The KDL-55HX850 retails for $4,000 and the VPL-VW1000ES, $35,000.

Sony also won EISA best product awards for its SLT-A57 (European SLR Camera of the year), Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 (European Advanced Compact Camera of the year), and Cyber-shot DSC-HX20V (European Travel Camera of the year).
