We’re all about 4k, the promised Utopian resolution of the near ultra-hi-def future. At display sizes around 292-inches at 96DPI, you really won’t need anything much larger (yeah, right).
Sony, lovers of this next-gen technology, has just dropped a new projector for the 4k crowd, using its new SXRD (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display, or Voodoo to us), giving it a resolution of 4,096 x 2,160, which comes out to 8.8 megapixels. “True” 4k resolution is generally accepted to be anything 10 megapixels or higher, but this is still good enough that most people wouldn’t notice.
This isn’t for your average home theater set up, this is for true digital cinema arenas and you can expect the price tag to match. While this is an impressive-as-hell resolution, it’s still not enough to display the full resolution of the RedOne, but that may change shortly.
