Features

Picture of 4K SXRD Home Cinema Projector

Native 4K resolution for lifelike pictures

With more than four times the resolution of Full HD, native 4K offers 8.8 million pixels (4096 x 2160) for a picture that is incredibly lifelike, which is why it is the resolution defined by the DCI (Digital Cinema Initiative) for theater distribution. See corner-to-corner clarity and watch movies from much closer than you would in Full HD.

Watch brightness for longer with a Z-Phosphor™ laser light  

The VPL-VW885ES's ultra-pure, reliable, Sony-developed Z-Phosphor™ laser light source lets you enjoy perfectly clear 4K pictures with the right brightness level for a very long time. You can also get up to 20,000 hours of uninterrupted operation, with no lamp replacement and virtually zero maintenance.

Infinite dynamic contrast for stunning realism

A dynamic contrast of ∞:1 makes every scene spring to life with fine detail and realism. By adjusting the laser light output dynamically depending on the brightness of content scenes, both deep, inky blacks and vibrant color are achieved.

Native 4K SXRD panel

The advanced SXRD panel technology featured in our digital theater projectors 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 deeper blacks with 4K SXRD™ panels

Latest SXRD panels deliver even better contrast, as well as native 4K resolution. With SXRD projection, you'll see rich, inky blacks, clear cinematic motion and smooth images. Improvements to the reflective silicon layer now mean even better light control, for precisely delivered shadows and blacks.

The super-resolution Reality Creation

Sony's exclusive Reality Creation technology analyzes images right down to the pixel level. It then employs pattern-matching algorithms developed over years of movie production to enhance crispness even 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-VW885ES offers Motionflow™ for smooth and clear motion, even when viewing 4K content. Motionflow™ adds frames to reduce blur, while maintaining brightness, in fast-moving scenes. Cinema purists can choose True Theater mode to retain the original 24fps.

Colors come alive with TRILUMINOS™ 

Discover true-to-life colors and tones. The VPL-VW885ES incorporates TRILUMINOS™ color, reproducing more tones and textures than a standard projector system. Hard-to-reproduce crimson reds, aqua blues, and emerald greens are displayed beautifully, so landscapes and seascapes look more vivid. Faces look better, too, with skin tones more faithfully reproduced.

HDR compatibility: every image comes to life

Get the most from your projector when viewing new UHD Blu-ray and streaming services with High Dynamic Range (HDR). HDR video offers a vastly expanded brightness range to deliver far more realistic, high-contrast images and brilliant colors. Compatible with both HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) formats. Sony's home projectors reproduce color and contrast faithfully to creators' intentions.
