Sony’s new professional 4K projector delivers the highest brightness of any projector the company has so far released – 23 000 centre lumens, and up to 30 000 in high brightness mode.
The new SRX-T423 3D dual projection system is designed for installation flexibility in large-venue commercial applications such as entertainment, auditorium/lecture hall presentations, simulation, theme parks, museums and planetariums.
The 4K resolution (4096 x 2160) projector more than doubles the light efficiency of competitive 3D systems, with 40 000 lumens of 3D brightness in dual projection mode. In addition to its high brightness, it delivers a contrast ratio of 3 000:1.
The new projector was built to offer system integrators and AV professionals ease of use, while reducing maintenance issues. For example, the T423 can be fitted with lenses from other models in the SRX series line, and the unit also offers a vertical tilt angle of +/- 30 degrees, ideal for dome configurations.
The SXRD projector’s 4K resolution is derived from its 4096 by 2160 pixel matrix, providing more than 8.8 million pixels, and allowing it to deliver more than four times the resolution of today’s consumer high-definition televisions. Sony’s 4K technology is used worldwide for a range of commercial applications such as computer visualisation, planetarium and museum exhibition, command and control, simulation, scientific research, education and defence.
The SRX-T423 projector will be availabe in September.
