4K Native Resolution
The VPL-VW1000ES features the same technology and resolution found in high-end, professional 4K movie theaters. 4K resolution is 4096 x 2160. That's more than four times 1080p resolution. It also supports a 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 2000 ANSI lumens of brightness and a wide color gamut.
4K SXRD Panel Technology
The high contrast and reflectivity panels increase the amount of reflected light, which provides a dynamic contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1.
Recommended for up to a 200" Screen
Because the VPL-VW1000ES has such high resolution and brightness, you can install a 200" screen and still experience an astonishingly crisp and bright picture in 2D. It supports up to 150" diagonal screen size if you're viewing 3D content.
4K Upscaling Technology
Sony's proprietary Super Resolution algorithm supports 4K upscaling technology. This allows you to watch your favorite HD movies and television shows in 4K Ultra HD resolution.
Integrate Into Virtually Any Home Automation System
Seamlessly integrate the VPL-VW1000ES into virtually any major automation system through the bi-directional, industry-standard RS232 or IP connections. It supports integration with Control4 Certified, AMX Device Discovery, Crestron Integrated Partner, Savant Partner in Excellence, RTI and URC as well.
Installing the VPL-VW1000ES is easy thanks to its motorized 2.1x zoom, motorized vertical/horizontal lens shift and a flexible 1.27-2.73:1 throw ratio for 1.78:1 zoom and 1.68-2.73 throw ratio for 2.35:1 anamorphic zoom using the picture position feature.
Preset Modes for Any Environment
By simply choosing the appropriate preset, the VPL-VW1000ES's 2000 ANSI lumens of brightness and color gamut can be adjusted for the ideal picture quality in any environment - whether gaming or watching sports in a lit room, or enjoying movies in a dark theater.
Multiple Anamorphic Solutions
While the VPL-VW1000ES is compatible with external anamorphic lens solutions, it also features "picture position" which allows for anamorphic viewing without the need for an external lens.
2D to 3D Conversion
Sony's unique 2D to 3D upconversion algorithm allows high-definition 2D content connected via HDMI to be viewed in immersive Sony 3D. Plus, the VPL-VW1000ES can support 3D, upscaled 4K and anamorphic simultaneously.
Due to the VPL-VW1000ES's advanced air discharge system, you'll forget that the projector is even in the room.
