Features

Cinematic 4K clarity with four times the detail of Full HD
SXRD panel technology featured in our professional cinema projectors delivers native 4K (4096 x 2160) resolution images, with no artificial pixel enhancement. Every detail is wonderfully clear and natural, without jagged edges or visible pixels.
Very high brightness and contrast
With an impressive 5,000 lumen brightness and a spectacularly high contrast range, 4K images are clear and bright with sparkling highlights and rich, deep blacks – even in well-lit rooms.
Long-lasting laser light source
Inside the VPL-VW5000ES is an ultra-pure, reliable laser light source with Z-Phosphor technology.
TRILUMINOS™ Display with even wider, cinema-like colour gamut
You will enjoy an extended range of spectacular colours, far wider than a standard projection system. The VPL-VW5000ES supports the same DCI-P3 colour space as professional cinema projectors, as well as the new BT.2020 colour space (emulated) that accurately captures an even wider range of true-to-life tones.
Smooth, fluid on-screen action
Coupled with the panel's super-fast response rate, Motionflow technology means you’ll see every detail with minimal blur - no matter how fast the action.
HDR compatible
Take full advantage of High Dynamic Range (HDR) for stunning contrast and an impressive range of brightness levels, from searing highlights to richly detailed dark scenes.
Future-proofed support for the latest HDMI standards
The VPL-VW5000ES can project Ultra HD content at up to 60 frames per second (4K 60p YCbCr 4:4:4 8 bit/ YCbCr 4:2:2 12 bit) for even smoother images with superior colour and realism. Support for HDCP 2.2 lets you enjoy the latest 4K content services.
Reality Creation upscales movies to 4K
As well as projecting native 4K content, the VPL-VW5000ES upscales your Full HD Blu-ray™ or DVD movie collection to 4K with Reality Creation - Sony's Super Resolution processing technology that enhances lower-resolution content, and even upscales 3D movies to 4K resolution.
Compatible with ‘Mastered in 4K’ Blu-ray™ Discs
Enjoy a near-native 4K experience with discs ‘Mastered in 4K’. It’s as close as you can get to the 4K-pixel resolution and expanded colour range of the original.
Picture position memories
Memorises up to five zoom lens positions for future viewing. Stored settings can be matched to a movie’s aspect ratio, including 16:9 and Cinemascope.
Flexible home installation
±30° tilt capability allows flexible installation in a wide range of home cinema environments such as rear projection.
Auto calibration
Set-up is quick and easy: auto calibration ensures superb pictures without effort.
Industry standard RF 3D compatible
The projector's built-in RF transmitter synchronises with any RF 3D glasses for wider coverage and greater stability, so there’s no need for an external transmitter.
Quick start
Don't keep your audience waiting for the show to begin. With quick start, thanks to laser light source technology, you’re all ready to start projection right after initial power-on.
