Audio Active Gives Up SIM2 Projectors For Top End Sony Gear

Audio Active Gives Up SIM2 Projectors For Top End Sony Gear

The change in distribution will be effective from June 1st.

The Sony projector range which is used by most major cinema chains in Australia is seen as leading edge projector technology that is used by Hollywood Studio’s. 

Paul Clarke General Manager of Sales + Marketing at Audio Active said ” Audio Active will be making the transition as seamless as possible for Interdyn so we do not expect any issues during this period”. 

Recently Sony announced a 4K Ultra Short Throw projector that is able to turn a wall into a massive 373 centimetres ultra-high definition screen. The product will be shown in Sydney this weekend at the HIA Show at Olympic Park. 

Short throw projectors can sit extremely close to walls meaning they don’t take up space in a room plus they can be moved and easily resized.

Sony says this projector isn’t only about turning a wall into a cinema, it can also be used as an experimental way to enhance a room – displaying art, a virtual window and more.

Rather than looking like a hunk of projector Sony has designed the 4K Ultra Short Throw to look like an impressive part of the room. 

The projector uses Sony’s Laser Light Source to ensure maximum brightness even at that high 4K resolution. This should also mean the projector lights will last up to ten times longer than traditional projector lamps, Sony says.

Unlike other projectors the short throw smarts of this, Sony claims, mean it’s pretty much as easy to setup as dropping in front of the wall it’ll be used on.

Audio Active is also selling the Sony High Res Audio player which is being used by Sony in JB Hi Fi stores to demonstrate the performance of their new headphone range. The $2,000 player is not available to buy at JB Hi i but customers can listen to 24bit audio being played from the new player that is acting as a source to demonstrate headphone performance.
