Sony VPL-VZ1000ES Overview

The VPL-VZ1000ES HDR DCI 4K Ultra-Short Throw SXRD Projector from Sony combines SXRD imaging technology with a long-lasting laser light source for high-detailed, high-contrast native 4K images with HDR compatibility. The energy-efficient Z-Phosphor laser source allows quick start and maintenance-free operation with no need for lamp exchanges. The ultra-short throw projector can be situated up close to a screen, allowing viewers to enjoy the realistic sensation of 4K images up to 120" at a close distance without producing shadows on the image. A convenient lens shift function, easily adjustable feet, and ventilation system simplifies installation in any home theater or living room space. The compact device occupies even less space on your AV cabinet, suitable for any home entertainment set-up, even in limited space.

  • SXRD panel delivers native 4K resolution images
  • High dynamic range (HDR) both for 4K 24p and 4K 60p for high contrast and a wide range of brightness levels, from searing highlights to richly detailed dark scenes
  • TRILUMINOS display for wide, cinema-like color gamut
  • Project large 4K images up to 120" diagonal onto a screen
  • Distracting glare and shadows are reduced, with no danger of your audience breaking the projector beam
  • Project in 3D with 2K resolution (up to 1920 x 1080)
  • Can project Ultra HD content at up to 60 frames per second (4K 60p YCbCr 4:4:4 8-bit/YCbCr 4:2:2 12-bit) for even smoother images with better color and realism
  • Supports rear-projection and can be operated floor-standing or ceiling mounted
  • Set-up is quick and easy with auto-calibration (adjusts the white balance only)
  • Whisper-quiet fan noise minimises disturbance for your audience
  • With quick start, the laser light source means you're all ready to start projection right after initial power-on
  • Thanks to ultra-short throw (UST) projection and its blended-in design, with side covers to conceal cabling, the display equipment fits perfectly into any room interior

What kind of glasses does the 3D require? Polarized theatre glasses, or battery powered shutter glasses?
Asked by: Dennis A
The projector requires active-shutter 3D glasses. You can enjoy powerful 3D video images, such as from 3D games and 3D Blu-ray Discs, using the optional Active 3D Glasses (TDG-BT500A).
