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 are wonderfully clear and natural, without jagged edges or visible pixels. See corner-to-corner clarity and watch movies from much closer than you would in Full HD.

See richer, deeper blacks

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.

∞:1 dynamic contrast for stunning realism

A dynamic contrast of ∞:1 brings every scene to life with exquisite detail and realism. Laser light output is adjusted dynamically depending on the content of the scene, achieving both deep, inky blacks and vibrant colours.

Longer lasting brightness with Z-Phosphor™ laser light with 2,000 lumens.

"The ultra-pure, reliable Z-Phosphor laser light source lets you enjoy exceptional 4K pictures with consistently uncompromised brightness levels. You can also enjoy up to 20,000 hours of uninterrupted operation, with no lamp replacement and virtually zero maintenance.

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.

Super-resolution Reality Creation

It upscales existing full HD Blu-ray Disc™ and DVD movies to near 4K quality.

Colours come alive with TRILUMINOS™

Discover true-to life colours and tones. The VPL-VW790ES 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.

4K Motionflow™

Motionflow ensures smooth, clear on-screen action, even when viewing 4K content. Extra frames are added to reduce blur while maintaining brightness in fast-moving scenes. Cinema purists can choose True Cinema mode to retain the original 24 fps frame rate of genuine movie projection.

Wider zoom and shift lens and Compact, practical design

The projector's powered zoom lens provides maximum flexibility for home installations, including high ceiling mounting.

Auto Calibration

After extended operating 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.

HDCP 2.2 compatibility

Both HDMI inputs are compatible with HDCP 2.2, the latest content protection standard.
