Sound & Vision will be unveiling some of the most anticipated products from Sony and Kaleidescape.We'll have on hand two projectors from Sony including the incredible laser powered VPL-VW5000es and the ground breaking Kaleidescape Strato 4K Movie Player. Both are major game changers that should not be missed.
With more than four times the resolution of Full HD, native 4K offers 8.8 million pixels (4096 x 2160) for a picture that’s so incredibly lifelike, it’s like looking at the real thing. This is the same resolution defined by Digital Cinema Initiatives for cinema distribution, with pixels one quarter the size of those used by traditional Full HD 1080p projectors. See corner-to-corner clarity and watch movies from much closer than you would in Full HD. The massive increase in resolution is certainly very impressive. What's even more impressive is the expanded range of colors, contrast capabilities and brightness. Images jump off the screen with a level of clarity and punch that has never been seen.
The award-winning Kaleidescape Strato is the world's first and only 4K Ultra HD high-dynamic-range movie player. Strato plays movies in true 4K Ultra HD at up to 60 frames per second, without startup delays, buffering messages, or quality drops that are so common with streaming services. Strato supports lossless multichannel audio including Dolby Atmos, and bit-stream pass-through of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. The Strato onscreen user interface is also displayed in 4K Ultra HD, at 60 frames per second, resulting in fluid animation and a stunning visual impact.
With over 11,000* movies and 2,000* TV seasons licensed from the major motion picture studios, the Kaleidescape Movie Store offers the best online selection of movies and TV shows available—all in Blu-ray or DVD quality. Many new releases are even available for download weeks before you can purchase them on disc. And with personalized recommendations, you're sure to discover something you'll love.
And it wouldn't be a sound and vision event with sound! In our recently updated theater we'll be demonstrating the amazing new sound format-Dolby ATMOS
