Sony will be rolling out its VPL-GH10 SXRD high-resolution professional projector pretty soon, and this model was specially designed for the simulation, training and industrial visualization markets. Guess that means you can still use it for your home theater system, but that would just be overkill, like driving a Ferrari around town during rush hour where you’re stuck in first gear all the time. What makes the VPL-GH10 so special? For starters, it will come with Sony’s very own Motionflow high frame rate technology that is able to identify and remove blurry images from fast motion content, giving viewers a much more accurate and realistic image that are essential for these specialized industries.
According to Andre Floyd, marketing manager for SXRD systems at Sony Electronics, “By combining full high-definition resolution and stunning contrast ratios with this built-in smear reduction capability this new projector provides highly accurate visual cues. These technologies will allow the creation of more realistic simulations and training imagery, enhancing the effectiveness of simulation and training programs.”
The projector will utilize Motionflow 120Hz frames-per-second technology with Dark Frame insertion that is able to reduce the blurring of fast-moving imagery effectively, something that previous generations of projectors cannot do. This is made possible thanks to uniquely developed algorithms which are able to create and insert 60 unique frames between each of the existing 60 frames of a normal 60 Hz video image, virtually doubling the frames displayed per second while improving image quality further whenever fast-action content is being played.
In addition, Sony SXRD panels which are able to deliver over 6 million pixels will enhance the image sharpness, while the three-panel (one panel per color) approach to RGB projection provides for more accurate and uniform color reproduction while gray scale reproduction is top notch. Other features include a 1.6x zoom lens and the ability to reproduce images in full HD (1920 x 1080) from pixels of 7 um. The lens itself comes with a motorized horizontal and vertical shift function for easy projector placement and flexible installation options.
