Features

Picture of Ultra-Short Throw 4K HDR Home Theater 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’s so incredibly lifelike, it’s like looking at the real thing. This is the same resolution defined by Digital Cinema Initiatives for cinema distribution, with pixels one quarter the size of those used by traditional Full HD 1080p projectors. See corner-to-corner clarity and watch movies from much closer than you would in Full HD.

Ultra-short throw distance for flexible installation

The VPL-VZ1000ES has been designed with flexible installation in mind. Place the projector right next to a wall and you’ll enjoy a beautiful 80" (diagonal) display; move the projector 8.3" away from the wall and this screen size increases to a huge 120". So whether it’s placed on the floor, mounted on the ceiling or used for rear projection, you can be sure that you’ll always see the big picture.

2500 lumens for spectacular brightness

Savor the action with an incredible 2500 lumens brightness, for high contrast across the screen. A highly efficient Z-Phosphor laser light generates the brightness required for vibrant images across the whole screen.

High dynamic contrast for stunning realism

The VPL-VZ1000ES's SXRD™ panels and laser light source help the projector achieve a high dynamic contrast. This means that the full color spectrum—from deep, inky blacks through to vibrant reds, blues and greens—is replicated with fine detail and realism, making every scene spring to life for truly immersive cinematic experience.

Reality Creation upscales your favorites

Upscale your existing Blu-ray Disc™ and DVD movies to near 4K quality. The super-resolution Reality Creation 4K upscaler analyzes every pixel in any direction, then employs a digital signal processing algorithm to map pixels against an ever-evolving picture patterning database, compiled from over 10 years of expertise, to enhance colors, contrast, and textures.

4K SXRD™: Our most advanced projection technology 

Our advanced SXRD™ (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) system features an ultra-fast response rate of 2.5 milliseconds for clear, blur-free images. The panels also minimize the space between the pixels—a feat not achieved by comparable projection technologies—allowing our projectors to deliver smoother images. Additionally, the decision to include three SXRD™ panels means this projector can display all primary colors simultaneously, and with light passing through each panel twice, this allows exceptionally deep blacks to be reproduced for a more powerful viewing experience.

Watch for longer with a Z-Phosphor laser light

Inside the VPL-VZ1000ES is an ultra-pure, reliable Z-Phosphor laser light source. You'll enjoy perfectly clear 4K pictures plus up to 20,000 hours of uninterrupted operation, with no lamp replacement and virtually zero maintenance.

Action stays smooth with Motionflow™

Whatever you’re watching, you’ll enjoy a silk-smooth on screen look in fast-moving action sequences with Motionflow. This innovative technology creates and inserts extra frames between the original frames by first comparing key visual factors on successive frames then calculating the split second of missing action in the sequences. True Theater 24p mode mimics true movie projection for theater purists.

HDR compatibility: every image comes to life

Combined with 4K native resolution and a wider color gamut, HDR video content delivers unprecedented detail, color and contrast, with a far wider range of brightness than other video formats. The result is a picture with lifelike realism, brilliant highlights, and fine detail. HDR content is available from selected streaming services and the upcoming 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray format.

Built-in 3D transmitter synchronizes entertainment

Start watching 3D movies quicker. An industry-standard RF 3D transmitter synchronizes the optional glasses with your projector for a quick, easy set-up. Upscale 2D films to 3D and enjoy classic movies in a whole new dimension.

Colors come alive with TRILUMINOS™

Discover true-to-life colors and tones. The VPL-VZ1000ES 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.

Fits any room

Neat and compact, this is a projector that’s ready for rooms of any size. Bring immersive 4K entertainment to places where projection may not previously have been possible.
