Our X1™ Ultimate for projector processor draws on Sony’s acclaimed BRAVIA TV video technologies, harnessing advanced data processing for real-time optimisation of individual on-screen objects. You’ll be rewarded with stunning HDR images with textures, colours, contrast and realism unattainable with previous home cinema projectors.
