Sony has revealed its new compact 4K projector, the VPL-GT100 that has the same 4K resolution (4096 x 2160, or 8.8 megapixels) of larger models, but in a smaller size that is appropriate for a range of government applications, including command and control.

The VPL-GT100 projector’s 44-pound, 1.5 oz weight is the result of an optical engine that uses a 0.74-inch SXRD panel and a highly integrated circuit, Sony says. Users also have the option to install the projector in either portrait or landscape mode, the firm says.

Using two display port inputs, the VPL-GT100 can show content at 4K/60P with 2000 lumens color light output. According to Sony, the projector’s native 4K SXRD panels, when combined with Sony’s Iris3 technology, can achieve a 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast.

Sony says the VPL-GT100 utilizes a wider-than-normal color space to project the full-color information provided by the professional Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) color specification and the Adobe red green blue (RGB) color space. The company also says that its “Dark Frame Insertion technology enhances realism and reduces visible smear, and the projector uses a new image processing technology to provide minimal transport delay.”
