Sony Pearl on Screen

I spent the better part of an hour in several separate visits watching the new Sony VPL-VW50 SXRD 1080p projector. While one could argue that there were better images to be seen at the show (comparing projectors under show conditions, with different screens sizes, materials, and different program material is a nearly hopeless exercise), there were only a few that could compete in the Sony's price range. The above screen shot won't really tell the whole story (screen shots are also an iffy thing) but I'll go with it anyway. The odd shape is simply due to limitations in the camera positioning. The image was a true rectangle. Honest.
