Sony has launched a new home theatre projector, the VPL-BW120S, in the MEA.

The VPL-BW120S features space-saving and glare-less short throw technology by Sony. This makes it ideal for home use and the short throw technology means that images of up to 100-inches can be viewed with a distance of just 1.3 metres between the projector and the screen. This is much better than the otherwise required 4.4 - 4.8 metres between the projector and the screen.

The projector has a brightness of 2,600 lumens allowing for a clear projection in a range of different lighting conditions. It also features rich colour reproduction a high contrast ration and 12-bit gamma correction for smooth colour gradients.

"We have seen great interest from consumers to replicate theatre-like experiences in their homes; however what hindered this move was the expense involved in such a replication as well as the aesthetic barriers of placing projectors in a living room. We expect the VPL-BW120S to be well received by this audience as it is designed to ensure that families and friends enjoy clear projection without compromising on clarity, space and energy efficiency" said Hidenori Taguchi, head of marketing, B2B Products and Solutions at Sony Professional Solutions MEA.

"With Sony's VPL-BW120S, families will not have to arrange their living arrangement around the projector - but instead can easily fit the projector into their existing living arrangement," added Taguchi.

The VPL-BW120S and Sony's new line of projectors will hit stores at the end of August.
