Sony X1™ processor for projector
X1™ processor for projector is an innovative technology that uses advanced algorithms to cut noise and boost detail with high-precision frame analysis.
Native 4K resolution for lifelike pictures
With more than four times the resolution of Full HD, native 4K offers 8.8 million pixels (4096 x 2160) for a picture that is incredibly lifelike, which is why it is the resolution defined by the DCI (Digital Cinema Initiative) for theatre distribution. See corner-to-corner clarity and watch movies from much closer than you would in Full HD.
Dynamic HDR Enhancer
Dynamic HDR Enhancer powered by X1 for projector enhances contrast scene by scene in combination with iris-controlled light output control to deliver stunning 4K HDR images
Motorised zoom lens and wide lens shift
Installing this projector in your room is easy with a 2.06x motorised zoom with a wide lens shift range. Adjust the position of the projector up to 85% vertically and 31% horizontally to get just the right angle for your movies.
1500 lumens for high brightness
Savour the action with up to 1,500 lumens of brightness, generated by a 225-W lamp, for vibrant images even on screens from 60″ to 300″/1524mm to 7620mm (diag.). No need to keystone correct with up to 80% Lens Shift
Native 4K SXRD panel
The advanced Silicon X-tal Reflective Display (SXRD) panel technology featured in our digital theatre projectors 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.
See deeper blacks with 4K SXRD panels
The latest SXRD panels deliver even better contrast, as well as native 4K resolution. With SXRD projection, you’ll see rich, inky blacks, clear cinematic motion, and smooth images. Improvements to the reflective silicon layer now mean even better light control, for precisely delivered shadows and blacks.
Super-resolution Reality Creation for 4K Contents
Sony’s exclusive Reality Creation technology analyses images right down to the pixel level. It then employs pattern-matching algorithms developed over years of movie production to enhance details even without increasing digital picture noise. It also upscales existing Full HD Blu-ray Disc and DVD movies to near 4K quality.
The powerful video processor in the VPL-VW290ES offers Motionflow for smooth and clear motion, even when viewing 4K content. Motionflow™ adds frames to reduce blur, while maintaining brightness, making it ideal for fast-moving sports content. Cinema purists can choose True Theatre mode to retain the original 24fps.
Colours come alive with TRILUMINOS
Discover true-to-life colours and tones. The VPL-VW290ES incorporates TRILUMINOS colour, reproducing more tones and textures than a standard projector system. 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 skin tones more faithfully reproduced.
