Sony Pearl VPL-VW50 1080p projector price confirmed at CEDIA

Our man on the scene at CEDIA has just gotten the official price confirmed for the new Sony Pearl VPL-VW50: it'll be $5,000, and will be available later this month, besting our previous information. We had thought that we'd have to wait until October and pay a bit more -- we suppose that this price drop is to compete with its other 1080p brethren, no? As we mentioned last time we drooled over this oyster-shaped projector, it's got a 200-watt lamp that throws out a respectable 900 lumens and on its non-projecting side, the Pearl has two HDMI inputs, one component input and is ready for 1080/60p, 1080/50p or 1080/24p, so you're totally decked out. Oh, and did we mention its staggering 15,000:1 contrast ratio? We've got all the shots of the beast on a CEDIA demo stand on the flip side.
