Sony is bringing their crazy 120″ ultra short throw projector to Australia

Often at CES we see crazy products that will never actually see the light of day, let alone actually make it to Australia. When I saw the Sony VPL-VZ1000ES ultra short throw 4K HDR home theatre projector announced I immediately dismissed it as a never coming to Australia product, and I was wrong. Sony Australia has confirmed that their latest high-end ultra short throw projector will be coming to Australia in April.

The projector measures in at 92.5 x 49.4 x 21.9 cm and a rather heafty 35KG and can sit just 15CM away from the wall giving a 120″ display. The lighting is provided by a Z-Phosphor laser capable of 2,500 lumens of light and a wide colour gamut and contrast ratio. Before you contact your local high-end installer to see if they are going to be stocking this bad boy, you may want to sit down.

Priced at $25,000 USD that would equate to around $32,750 without any increase in price for local shipping, taxes or other costs. So this is definitely a device for the uber wealthy who just must have the best of the best, regardless of price. Would it be awesome for that cost? You betch ya, but somewhow I don’t think my wife will let me have one.

Never worry, Sony is also bringing a great range of Android TV powered OLED and LED TV’s downunder as well.
