Julie Jacobson: 18 Home Automation and A/V Hits at CEDIA 2015
CEDIA Expo 2015 reveals hundreds of new products, but here are just 18 we hope you saw in the home automation, audio, video and business management categories.
Sony had lines wrapped around its booth through the entire show. This pic was taken at 3 pm on Saturday, just a couple of hours before the show ended for good. While the rest of the expo floor was empty, people still stood in line at Sony to see the new $60k VPL-VW5000ES, apparently the world’s first projector designed specifically for home theater use to provide full 4K resolution with a laser light source that provides 5,000 lumens of brightness. It can reproduce High Dynamic Range content, and simulate the new ITUR BT2020 color gamut on top of the full DCI colors pace. Providing over 20,000 hours of virtually maintenance-free operation, the VPL-VW5000ES projector is truly the ultimate home cinema display. That last guy in the queue is a consumer who, along with his wife, stood in line three times for the Sony demo because, "my installer wants me to upgrade to this projector and it's the only place to see it."Back to article
