The Sony VPL-VW570ES is the replacement to the popular VPL-VW550ES. The mid range offering VPL-VW570ES produces true 4K resolution images with native 4K (4096 x 2160) SXRD panels – that’s over four times the quality of Full HD. Native 4K 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-VW570ES in your living room or dedicated home cinema room is easy with a 2.06 motorised zoom with a wide lens shift range. Adjust the position of the projected image up to 85% vertically and 31% horizontally for precise placement.
Compatible with HDR10 and HLG formats, the VPL-VW570ES is now also HDMI 18 Gbps compatible so it will support 4K HDR content at 60fps with 4:4:4 colour sampling at 8Bit colour depth or 4:2:2 with 12Bit colour depth. In addition to HDR support, the VW570ES also has picture position memory to store your settings for various aspect ratios, great if you have a combination of 16:9 and cinemascope content formats. At the press of a button the VW570ES will adjust the image to suit the stored aspect ratio. Up to 5 presets are available to store your settings.
In a recent review over at insideci, they had the following conclusion in summing up the VPL-VW570ES.."The VPL-VW570ES is a massively impressive native 4k projector. If you’re specifying a home theatre, it ticks most every box. Images are detailed and colour rich, contrast is exceptional. This model casts gloriously filmic images.It's difficult to fault the quality of Sony’s picture processing. Every premium cinema deserves one."
