Projector Technology Features

4K innovation

Sony brings years of innovation and industry-leading expertise in professional 4K to home theaters with the Sony VPL-VW1000ES 4K Home Theater ES 3D Projector. The result is the most immersive picture yet, drawing viewers into 2D and 3D movies like never before.

Clearest picture

Vivid color, film-like image quality and HD brilliance are the result of Sony's three high frame rate SXRD™ micro-display panels. The SXRD chips support full HD 1080p up to 4K resolution for outstanding cinematic quality and incredible image smoothness.

Smooth, vibrant images

Sony ES projectors provide the most immersive, captivating home theater experience imaginable. Up to 2,000 ANSI lumens provide unparalleled brightness. Ultra-smooth motion from Sony's Motionflow™ 240Hz technology with dark frame insertion. And 24p True Cinema technologies. There's nothing like it.

Really get into 3D

All Sony ES projectors deliver an amazing 3D experience. Virtually eliminate crosstalk with the 240Hz panel drive. Plus, turn any 2D content to 3D with upconversion.

Whisper-quiet operation

Ultra-quiet fans mean you won't even know the projector is on. No worry about distracting fan noise when watching your favorite movies and TV shows.

Designed with integrators in mind

Sony ES projectors easily integrate with virtually all major control systems including features like the AMX device discovery beacon, RS232 and the VPL-VW1000ES also includes Control4® Simple Device Discovery and IP with feedback.
