Sony Electronics held a special preview and launch of its 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector at Waterfall Mansion in New York City.
Watch video below…
Sony partnered with designer Campion Platt, Domus Design Collection’s (ddc), partner Babak Hakakian and art director Jens Ahlemeyer transforming living spaces in the mansion displaying the user experience and technology of the innovative projector.
Placed inches from an open wall, Sony’s 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector is housed in a contemporary credenza styled aluminum case and radiates a massive 4K laser image — up to 147 inches — on the wall directly above it rather than across the room; ergo, a ‘short throw’.
Blank walls turn into high-definition ‘entertainment windows’. Movies, live concerts, sporting events and underwater scenes become immersive experiences. You can even create a private art gallery by projecting your favorite pieces of art.
“Interior designers are going to love this projector because it compliments elegant design,” says Michael Fasulo, Sony Electronics President and COO. “It gives the designer an opportunity to take new visual viewing into entertainment spaces and provide experiences customized to their client.”
The speaker units eliminate exposed cables and the cabinet units on the right and left ends of the casing accommodate other home electronics for storage.
This video includes imagery of the 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector in living spaces at Waterfall Mansion. There’s also interviews with Mike Fasulo, President & COO of Sony Electronics, Babak Hakakian, Partner at ddc and designer, Yusuke Tusujita.
