Projectorpoint Opinion

The Sony VPL-VW870ES is the flagship model in Sony’s Home Cinema line up. Native 4K resolution (4096 x 2160 pixels) SXRD Home Cinema Projector with laser light source, 2,200 lumen brightness and HDR10 / HLG compatibility and HDMI 18Gbps rated.

Unique to this model is the optional VPLL-Z7008 (0.8-1.02:1 ratio) short throw lens which you allows you to achieve large screen sizes from a short projection distance.

Image clarity is pin sharp as the VPL-VW870ES features an All-Range Crisp Focus (ARC-F) lens. This large-aperture lens adopts an all-glass design for its 18 elements, including six extra low-dispersion (ELD) elements.

Sony’s 4K home cinema models are the VPL-VW270ES, VPL-VW590ES, VPL-VW790ES and the flagship VPL-VW870ES.

Manufacturer Overview

Watch brightness for longer with a Z-Phosphor laser light
The VPL-VW870ES uses an ultra-pure and reliable Z-Phosphor laser light source. This Sony developed light source offers bright images for up to 20,000 hours of uninterrupted operation – no lamp replacement, and virtually zero maintenance.

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.

Dual contrast control
In addition to the dynamically-controlled laser light output, an Advanced Iris is also incorporated. Both the iris control and laser can be adjusted independently, and dynamically, to optimise light output for both dark and bright well-lit scenes. The result is deeper blacks than ever, as well as bright, vibrant colours where needed. The infinite dynamic contrast makes every scene spring to life with detail and realism.

Corner-to-corner sharpness with the ARC-F lens
For pristine image quality across the entire screen, the VPL-VW870ES features an All-Range Crisp Focus (ARC-F) lens. This large-aperture lens adopts an all-glass design for its 18 elements, including six extra low-dispersion (ELD) elements. This ensures optimal convergence of the red, green and blue primaries even at the extreme edges of the image for a clear and vivid image wherever you look.

Digital Focus Optimiser
Optimum focus is achieved, not only optically but digitally, by the Digital Focus Optimiser. It compensates the possible optical degradation of the lens in advance then outputs the optimum corrected images, so that even the focus in the corners is better than ever.

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.

4K Motionflow
The powerful video processor in the VPL-VW870ES offers Motionflow for smooth and clear motion, even when viewing 4K content. Motionflow adds frames to reduce blur, while maintaining brightness, making it ideal for fast-moving sports content. Cinema purists can choose True Theatre mode to retain the original 24fps.

Picture Position Memory stores your settings
Store lens, zoom, and shift settings for up to five screen formats for easy recall. Picture Position Memory remembers key settings so you can quickly watch movies in the ideal format. Match aspect ratios, including 16:9 and Cinemascope, and store these settings in the projector.

Select from nine calibrated picture modes
Quickly set the picture to what you’re watching or playing. Select from nine calibrated picture modes, including two theatre film modes, cinema digital, reference, TV, photo, game, bright cinema, and bright TV. An advanced HSV (Hue Saturation Value) colour tuning tool gives you even more control.
