Sony Original High Frame Rate SXRD Panels
The core of the BRAVIA VPL-VW80 is its High Frame Rate triple SXRD™ panel array which can operate at 100 fps - double the norm - for exceptionally smooth on-screen action. Read more details on SXRD in the benefit section.

Crisp, Smooth Action with Motionflow Dark Frame Insertion
The projector uses Motionflow Dark Frame Insertion to deliver on the potential offered by the High Frame rate SXRD panels. Motionflow itself works by creating intermediate frames from the original video source and inserting them to double the number of images displayed every second. The unprecedented level of accuracy with which this is done ensures that what you see on the screen is a seamless, perfectly crisp and smoothly moving image.

Dark Frame Insertion enhances the effect of Motionflow. The optional insertion of darkened frames heightens the contrast and eliminates any judder - the jerky picture that can occur when the camera pans - by allowing the eye 'space' to blend one frame into the next. This action mimics that of actual movie projection and functions best in the darkened environment of a Home Cinema.

Digital Picture Processing - BRAVIA ENGINE 2
The unique BRAVIA ENGINE 2 delivers vibrant colours and exceptional image quality. Its eight separate stages of image enhancement - carried out in real time - each has a specialised function. Together they generate a picture that is optimised in every way, from the accuracy of the contrast to the precision of the colour reproduction.

Superb Contrast Ratio with Advanced Iris 2
The Advanced Iris 2 contrast enhancement works like the human eye, responding dynamically to the level of light in each scene, always selecting the optimum contrast. With a very high range of 60,000:1 (the difference between dead black and pure white), Advanced Iris 2 can bring out the detail in darker sequences and prevent bright scenes from looking washed out.

High Resolution All Range Crisp Focus (ARC-F) Lens
The VPL-VW80 is equipped with the All Range Crisp Focus (ARC-F) lens which has the necessary superior resolution and focus characteristics. The lens offers a 1.6x motorised zoom and both vertical (65%) and horizontal (25%) Lens Shift adjustment, making it easy to set the projector up and achieve a good picture in a variety of environments. To keep the lens in perfect condition it has a motorised cover which automatically opens when the power is turned on, and closes again at power-down.

Advanced Colour Enhancement Features
Something else that brings the VPL-VW80 closer to the capabilities of the human eye is its support for x.v.Colour. x.v.Colour is based on xvYCC, a new international standard for video that defines a colour space nearly two times wider than the existing sRGB standard, making x.v.Colour literally more lifelike. Deep Colour™ boosts the number of colours available within the xvYCC colour space from millions to billions, further future-proofing the projector against developments in colour handling technology. In the event that you do need to adjust screen colours, the perfect tool for the job is provided by Real Colour Processing. This allows you to adjust the hue of a specific colour without changing the whole image. So if something like skin tone needs tweaking, you can do it without altering the colour of the sky or the background of the scene. Great Connectivity - 24p True Cinema and Dual Trigger Out
The inclusion of twin connectors with HDMI™ technology opens up another dimension for the VPL-VW80. It makes it possible to connect to video sources like Blu-ray Disc™ players which offer exact, 24 frame-per-second replication of the cinematic original. As the projector has the '24p True Cinema' function, it can display films exactly as they were first recorded. HDMI CEC technology also allows control of multiple devices from a single remote in a process called BRAVIA Theatre Sync. One Touch Play lets you insert a disc and press Play, at which point the whole Home Theatre system, including the projector, powers up automatically and the film starts. Conversely, System Stand-By shuts down all HDMI-connected elements of the system at a single press of the Power/Standby button on the remote. The VPL-VW80 comes also with two Trigger Out terminals, one of the two Trigger Out terminals handles Anamorphic Zoom mode; the other is for power.

Silent Operation
Apart from bright lights, something else that can degrade the Home Cinema experience is noise from the projector itself. With this fully in mind, the VPL-VW80 has an even further optimized airflow thanks to its unique design bringing fan noise down to 20dB.
