    With more than four times the resolution of Full HD, native 4K offers 8.8 million pixels (4096 x 2160) for a picture that’s so incredibly lifelike, it’s like looking at the real thing. This is the same resolution defined by Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCi) for cinema distribution, with pixels one quarter the size of those used by traditional Full HD 1080p projectors. See corner-to-corner clarity and watch movies from much closer than you would in Full HD.

    Installing the VPL-VW260ES in your living room or dedicated home cinema room is easy with a 2.06 motorized zoom with a wide lens shift range. Adjust the position of the projected image up to 85% vertically and 31% horizontally for precise placement.

    Bring the truly cinematic quality of 4K into your own home with the VPL-VW260ES Home Cinema projector.

    Sony's native 4K (4096 x 2160) SXRD panel technology produces true 4K resolution pictures with over four times the quality of Full HD. Designed for today's home cinema rooms and living spaces, the VPL-VW260ES delivers stunning, detail-packed images with incredibly lifelike colour. And with high brightness, you’re guaranteed an exceptional picture even in well-lit rooms.

    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 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.

    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 an incredibly lifelike image with the same resolution defined by the DCI (Digital Cinema Initiative) for cinema distribution. See corner-to-corner clarity and watch movies from much closer than you would in Full HD.

    Bright, high contrast images : SXRD panel technology can achieve an extremely high contrast ratio compared with other devices. You'll see the difference with more immersive, high brightness images.

    1,500 lumens for high brightness : Enjoy the action with up to 1,500 lumens brightness, for vibrant images on screens up to 762 cm (300").

    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. Sony’s home cinema projectors reproduce colour and contrast that's faithful to the creator's intention.

    Super-resolution Reality Creation :Exclusive Reality Creation technology analyses images right down to the pixel level. 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 : Discover true-to life colours and tones. The VPL-VW260ES 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. Faces look better, too, with faithfully reproduced skin tones.

    Action stays smooth with Motionflow : Whatever you're watching, you'll enjoy a silk-smooth on-screen look in fast-moving action sequences with Motionflow. This innovative technology creates and inserts extra frames between the original frames, first comparing key visual factors on successive frames, then calculating each split-second of missing action. Cinema purists can choose True Cinema mode to retain the original 24 fps frame rate of genuine movie projection.

    Compact, practical design : The projector's compact size gives extra flexibility for installing in your home cinema set-up.

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

    Front-facing fan : 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.

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

    Long-lasting lamp :The high-performance lamp and advanced lamp control technology allow the projector to deliver an extremely long lamp replacement time of 6,000 hours. (Approximate recommended period, in low mode.)

    Low fan noise : Whisper-quiet 26 dB fan noise minimises disturbance for your audience.
