The Sony VPL-VW500ES offers DCI based 4096 x 2160 resolution, delivering the very highest quality 4K content natively. The 4K experience is created using native 4K SXRD panels that utilise Sony's 4K expertise from the professional digital cinema market.
In addition, the projector has the latest HDMI standard, HDMI 2.0, to accommodate 4K/60P content, which allows the VPL-VW500ES to show up to 60 frames per second in 4K (at colour signal YUV 4:2:0). It’s the new 4K industry standard and is much higher than the earlier 24p. The result is a smoother image with superior colour and realism without the need for enhancement of the pixels.
Supporting 4K native resolution, the VPL-VW500ES also features an exclusive Super Resolution 4K upscaler called Reality Creation. This dramatically enhances high definition 1080p content, allowing viewers to enjoy 4K images with their existing Blu-ray Discs, even in 3D. Furthermore, the VPL-VW500ES has an original 4K up-scaling algorithm designed for 'Mastered in 4K' Blu-ray Discs from Sony Picture Entertainment, which enable the viewer to enjoy more accurate 4K native picture quality.
The VPL-VW500ES has 1,700 ANSI-lumen brightness and a 200,000:1 contrast ratio which delivers a sharper picture quality. The projector has rich colour reproduction thanks to TRILUMINOS display technology, an enhanced optical engine design and auto-calibration features. Its manual colour correction tool allows users to adjust the hue, saturation and brightness to obtain a picture quality customised to their tastes. Motionflow picture technology also works to deliver clearer, less blurry images when watching fast-paced, cinematic action.
The VPL-VW500ES is compact and has a front air exhaust cooling system. Its flexibility means it is cable of projecting large distances without having to alter the projector's position in the room. The projector uses a 2.06 zoom powered lens with a wide shift range which removes the requirement for additional platform extensions in ceiling mounts. Triluminos Display:
The VPL-VW500’s optical engine and SXRD panels incorporate our Triluminous Display technology to produce a much broader colour range, reproducing more tones and textures than a standard projector system. The result is greater purity, depth and realism.New Motionflow :
We’ve enhanced our Motionflow technology. ‘Combination’ mode uses our ‘Film Projection’ and ‘Motion Enhancer’, adding frames to reduce blur and maintain brightness in thrilling, fast-moving scenes. Cinema purists can choose ‘True Cinema’ to retain the original 24 frames per second.
Industry standard RF 3D compatible :A built-in RF transmitter synchronises with any RF 3D glasses for wider coverage, greater stability, and there’s no need for a cable.
Reality Creation: upscales your movies to 4K .As well as native 4K material, you can see your current Full HD Blu-ray™ or DVD movie collection upscaled for a 4K experience. Reality Creation is a Super Resolution technology that radically enhances Full HD content, even upscaling 3D movies for 4K.
Compatible with ‘Mastered in 4K’ Blu-ray discs :Drawing on the same technology used to downscale 4K material for Full HD, the VPL-VW500ES gives you a near native 4K experience with discs ‘Mastered in 4K’. It’s as close as you can get to the 4K-pixel resolution and expanded colour range of the original.
The latest 4K/60p HDMI standard: 60 frames per second. The VPL-VW500ES can show up to 60 frames per second in 4K (at colour signal YUV 4:2:0 / 8 bit). It’s the new 4K industry standard and is much higher than the earlier 24p. The result is a smoother image with superior colour and realism.
Auto calibration After extended periods, colour can be automatically calibrated to the original factory condition. There’s no need for extra calibration equipment or cameras; a built-in colour sensor stores all the necessary information.
