The second problem is that 48fps is not supported but I think 48fps is further away to be released for home use than 4K Blu-Ray/streaming content.
Sorry, but you're way, way off on this.
First, there is no new HDMI standard yet. It doesn't exist. So, to suggest the VW1000ES isn't compatible with the new standard would be like saying "my 2010 Toyota Camry doesn't support the 2020 Toyota Camry navigation system." Of course it doesn't...the 2020 navigation system has been created yet.
No one knows when the standard is coming and what the standard will include. You're speaking as though the format has been nailed down and is launching imminently. Definitely not the case. There's no definitive way to even know whether or not HDMI 1.5 or 2.0 will even support 48fps at this point.
The VW1000ES DOES support a native 4K input at 24fps. So yes, you will absolutely, 100% be able to play 4K movies when the content becomes available. I'm not sure why you think you wont. Just because a new HDMI version comes out, doesn't mean that older standards cease to exist. The HDMI ports on the VW1000ES won't magically disappear or stop working. Not only that, but Sony has said that they'll release a new board when the HDMI standard is set.
I think you may be confusing this projector and the e-shift JVC. The Sony supports native 4K and the JVC does not. The VW1000ES is a true 4K projector.Edited by BrianMundt - 4/18/13 at 3:54am
