Sony's first color video projection system
This system used special cathode-ray tube (CRT) video evolved from Sony's Trinitron technology. The video images were projected through a large aperture lens onto a specially-designed large screen with effective screen size of 50 inches.
Sony's first LCD projector for domestic consumer use. This was the first home-use projector to adopt three-panel LCD architecture.
The 'Glasstron' personal LCD monitor was a head-mounted system that enabled individuals to enjoy realistic video equivalent to that of a 52-inch screen.
The 'QUALIA 004' SXRD HD Projector was the world's first Full HD-compatible projector for domestic consumer use. It was also the first home-use projector in the industry to be equipped with the newly developed pure Xenon lamp.
This video projector for home-use adopts the industry's first single-optical engine system and is compatible with full high vision 3D imagery.
