While on one hand, companies like LG and Sony had a lot to show and say about new big and even some not-so-big Ultra HD LED LCD flat-panel TVs, and even the first UHD OLED TVs, the usual cast of home-theater projector manufacturers showed only very expensive commercial-grade DLP 4K Digital Cinema projectors or pixel-shifting "enhanced 4K" models, which some attendees on the floor were satirically referencing as "Faux K." From the native 4K home-theater projector perspective, Sony was again about the only game in town, showing its three-chip home-based 4K SXRD models: the VPL-VW1100ES and VPL-VW600ES. While not new, the entry-level "4K reference projectors" did receive enhancements, including control over IP operation and new calibration software via a new PC application, leaving competitors frustrated with the dragging heels of their microdisplay.
