Now you can make this a reality with our VPL-VW550ES/VW360ES/VW260ES series of Home Cinema projectors. They produce true 4K resolution images with our native 4K (4096 x 2160) SXRD panels – that’s over four times the quality of Full HD.
Designed for your home cinema room and living room, the VPL-VW550ES/VW360ES/VW260ES deliver stunning, detail-packed images and incredibly lifelike colour like never before. And with high brightness, you’re guaranteed an exceptional picture even in well-lit rooms.
Featured in Sony's digital cinema projectors, advanced SXRD (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) panel technology delivers native 4K (4096 x 2160) resolution images, with more than four times the detail of Full HD. Fine details are wonderfully clear and natural, without jagged edges or visible pixels.
Latest SXRD 4K panels deliver even better contrast, as well as native 4K resolution. SXRD projection offers rich, inky blacks, as well as clear cinematic motion and image smoothness. Improvements to the panel's reflective silicon layer now mean even better light control, for precisely reproduced shadows and blacks.
With more than four times the resolution of Full HD, native 4K offers 8.8 million pixels (4096 x 2160) for an incredibly lifelike image with the same resolution defined by the DCI (Digital Cinema Initiative) for cinema distribution. See corner-to-corner clarity and watch movies from much closer than you would in Full HD.
SXRD panel technology can achieve an extremely high contrast ratio compared with other devices. You'll see the difference with more immersive, high brightness images.
Enjoy the action with up to 1,500 lumens brightness, for vibrant images on screens up to 762 cm (300").
Sony’s Advanced Iris3 technology adjusts light output frame-by-frame, allowing the projector to achieve an incredible 200,000:1 dynamic contrast. Fine shadow detail is revealed in dark scenes, without compromising reproduction of bright scenes for truly captivating images.
Get the most from today's UHD Blu-ray and streaming services with High Dynamic Range. HDR video offers an expanded brightness range that delivers more realistic, high-contrast images and brilliant colours. Compatible with both HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) formats. Sony’s home cinema projectors reproduce colour and contrast that's faithful to the creator's intention.
Exclusive Reality Creation technology analyses images right down to the pixel level. It uses powerful pattern-matching algorithms developed over years of movie production to enhance image crispness without increasing digital picture noise. It also upscales existing full HD Blu-ray Disc™ and DVD movies to near 4K quality.
Discover true-to life colours and tones. The VPL-VW360ES incorporates TRILUMINOS colour, reproducing more tones and textures than standard projectors. Hard-to-reproduce crimson reds, aqua blues, and emerald greens are displayed beautifully so landscapes and seascapes look more vivid. Faces look better, too, with faithfully reproduced skin tones.
Whatever you're watching, you'll enjoy a silk-smooth on-screen look in fast-moving action sequences with Motionflow. This innovative technology creates and inserts extra frames between the original frames, first comparing key visual factors on successive frames, then calculating each split-second of missing action. True Cinema 24p mode mimics true movie projection for movie purists.
The projector's compact size gives extra flexibility for installing in your home cinema set-up.
The projector's powered zoom lens provides maximum flexibility for home installations, including high ceiling mounting.
As the fan is positioned at the front of the projector, you don’t need to worry about wall space and clearance for air inhale/exhaust during installation. This helps maximise throw distance for bigger projected images.
The projector's picture position memory memorises the position of the lens (focus, zoom, shift). Users can match a movie’s aspect ratio, including 1.78:1 and 2.35:1, and store these settings for instant recall.
After extended periods, colour can be automatically calibrated to the original factory conditions.There’s no need for extra calibration equipment or cameras; a built-in colour sensor stores all the necessary information.
Both HDMI inputs are compatible with HDCP 2.2, the latest content protection standard.
The high-performance lamp and advanced lamp control technology allow the projector to deliver an extremely long lamp replacement time of 6,000 hours*.
