Experience clearer, brighter pictures and immersive heart-pounding audio. Watch movies as the filmmaker intended with increased aspect ratios, enhanced content and premium content digitally remastered for the ultimate home cinema experience with the SONY VPL-VW290ES 4K SXRD Projector. Enjoy the big screen experience at home with access to the latest 4K content with this affordable home cinema projector featuring sharp images, and an incredibly high contrast ratio, all with great connectivity and easy set up.
Native 4K SXRD™ panel
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 as a result are wonderfully clear and natural, without jagged edges or any visible pixels.
See richer, deeper blacks
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.
Super-resolution Reality Creation
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.
Colours come alive with TRILUMINOS™
The VPL-VW290ES 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.
HDR compatibility: every image comes to life
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.
HDMI 18 Gbps compatibility
With an increase in 4K HDR 60P content, the VPL-VW290ES is now HDMI 18 Gbps compatible for smoother expressions of gradations.
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.
Watch for longer with a 225W ultra high pressure lamp
Enjoy up to 6000 hours* of viewing time (in low mode) from a long-lasting lamp. This means fewer lamp swaps, simpler maintenance, and lower running costs. Enjoy the action with up to 1,500 lumens brightness, generated by a 225W lamp, for vibrant images on screens.
Select from nine calibrated picture modes
Quickly set the picture to what you’re watching or playing. Select from nine calibrated picture modes, including two theatre film modes, cinema digital, reference, TV, photo, game, bright cinema, and bright TV. An advanced HSV (Hue Saturation Value) colour tuning tool gives you even more control.
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.
