Sony Unveils Portable Cineza Home Entertainment Projector

8 lbs, $3,000 (September 12, 2001)
Sony Electronics announced its Cineza Home Entertainment Projector, the VPL-HS1, featuring high-definition capability, SideShot projection and a Memory Stick media slot. The portable Sony projector offers a screen size of 60 to 150-inches diagonally.

"With the growing popularity of digital entertainment sources -- from DVD and DSS to video games and digital photography -- consumers are looking for a big screen display that will bring their entertainment to life," said Lisa Baldino, marketing manager for Sony Electronics' Display Systems Division. "Ideal for screen sizes ranging from five to 10 feet, the Cineza Home Entertainment Projector is a big-picture, digital solution in a small, portable package."


Baldino added that the portable projector is also handy for condominiums and apartments, where "space is the final frontier."

The Cineza home entertainment projector sports SideShot digital keystone correction, which makes it the first projector designed for home use that can be placed on an angle to the screen and still project images that are centered on the screen, says the company. The feature can also help free up valuable space front-and-center for the audience.

The Sony Cineza Home Entertainment Projector comes with a remote control and composite video cable for direct access to a single component. With an optional multi-pin signal interface unit, cable management, as well as switching multiple video inputs is made easy. All that is required is to plug in the single cable of the interface unit into the projector and then connect the unit to a cable or satellite receiver, DVD player, VCR or game console.

The footprint for the Sony projector is a mere 13-1/2 (w) x 6-1/8 (h) x 11-7/8 (d) inches. The unit weighs about eight pounds and can rest on the lower shelf of most coffee tables when not in use.

The Sony Cineza Home Entertainment Projector is now available for about $3,000.
