This is Sony's least expensive 4K projector, and it is available for $5,000. The VPL-VW285ES boasts a "full" 3,840x2,160 resolution and HDR compatibility. Sony's projector features the company's "Triluminous Display" for a wider colour gamut and a lamp-life of up to 6,000 hours. The VW285 comes with an Advanced Iris which is also able to ratchet up the contrast, according to Sony.
The projector offers a maximum picture size of 200 inches and real 4K output as opposed to the slightly lesser Ultra HD, with a resolution of 4096 x 2160.
In order to make the most of HDR content any display should have as high brightness as possible but the Sony is only capable of 1,500 lumens. By comparison, the Optoma is able to get up to 3,000 lumens.
Sony is also announcing the VPL-VW885ES with a "laser light source" and a 2,000 lumens brightness at a relatively costly $25,000.
While the $5,000 VPL-VW285ES is capable of an image up to an impressive 200 inches the projector category still lags behind TV in both terms of HDR capability for the money and the ability to watch in a lit room. That said, this newest model could be the tipping point as far as affordability is concerned. Video walls can't be that far away now, surely.
