Sony Dynamic Digital Picture; Electronics Veteran Develops 4 K Projector

posted by CinemAFuchs on September 8, 2004 at 2:34 am

Just as we have begun to understand the significance of 2K resolution (2048 x 1080 pixels) in the upcoming standards for d-cinema, technology is forging ahead again.

With the June 3, 2004 introduction of plans for not one, but two digital-cinema projectors at 4096 x 2160 pixel resolution (4K) with ‘unprecedented features’ and ‘a high contrast ratio’ (2000:1), Sony declared itself ‘taking the lead in the rapidly emerging digital-cinema market.’

Does anyone know if any theater in the US has this projector? How does it compare to the 2K projectors that are already out? You’d think this new one is 2x as sharp.

I Like it! I was wondering about the current type of lamp used in mechanical projectors & will a digital have a comparable color temperature scale? My expierience is that the HID lamps of digital are less warm in appearance. Any input? (forgive my naivity)
