OK. I am recovered from the massive work ongoing for months to get my house ready to show.
Here is the official Sony press release and not some idiotic member of the press telling it what it says https://blog.sony.com/press/sony-announces-price-and-availability-of-its-new-xbr-4k-ultra-hd-led-tvs-2/
So please let's all read that.
Here is the sentence from the press release:
This summer, consumers of Sony’s 4K UHD TVs can purchase the FMP-X1 4K Media Player bundled with 10 feature films and video shorts in true 4K resolution for $699. In the fall of 2013, users of the same 4K Media Player will be given access to a fee-based video distribution service . . .
Zombie. You must think I am an idiot. Nothing about Sony anymore makes sense and their home entertainment side (Hollywood) is scared to death about people stealing their content. They made the present server so that only panel owners could play it and then it was dedicated to a specific serial number.
Joe. Neither of us has the contacts any more to get the question answered. Will the new server work with the VPL-vw1000ES. I don't know who to ask anymore and I doubt anyone in Sony US would know anyway.
I doubt Sony monitors this thread anymore. If so, just please pm me and provide an answer. And please guys no more statements about I am sure it will. Sony is disorganized and fractionated. A simple answer. Maybe an addendum to the press release. saying for Sony 4K panels and Sony 4K projectors. Also will the server be designed to work with non Sony 4K panels.
Joe. Maybe you can get Sony to provide an official answer.Edited by mark haflich - 4/8/13 at 8:04am
