As I’ve come to expect from Sony, the inclusion of a centrally mounted, fully motorized lens makes setup much easier than a lot of other projectors, which still offer only manual lens control. The lens has 2.06x zoom, a 1.36:1 – 2.79:1 throw ratio, with ±85 percent vertical and ±31 percent horizontal lens shift, offering a lot installation flexibility. Sony claims 1,800 lumens of light output, a 350,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, support for all common types of 3D, HDR10 and HLG HDR modes, along with support for REC2020 color gamut. The 280-watt UHP lamp is rated for 6,000 hours.
I/O on the VW695 includes the two aforementioned 18Gbps HDMI 2.0b ports, a USB port for firmware updates, two 12-volt trigger ports, an RS-232 port for legacy system control, a LAN port for IP system control, and an IR port for a wired remote control.”
