Get closer to reality

Impressive picture quality is boosted by Sony’s unique super resolution Reality Creation technology. This uses a powerful pattern-matching database to optimise lower-resolution images, enhancing clarity without increasing digital picture noise.

Faster, fuss-free set-up

Save time with Sony’s Intelligent Setting function that simplifies installation with pre-sets to optimise brightness, cooling, colour and other projector settings. You’ll be rewarded with great pictures in any environment – including meeting/classrooms, museums, entertainment venues and multi-screen setups.

For more flexible installation

Don’t restrict your thinking. You’ll appreciate an industry-leading lens shift adjustment range and a wide choice of interchangeable lenses, giving more options to install the projector in any space, including classrooms and halls with high ceilings. For extra flexibility the VPLL-Z4107 short throw lens is ideal when positioning the projector close to the screen to avoid ceiling-mounted obstructions.
