About The Sony VPL-VW290ES SXRD 4K Video Projector

Sony's VPL-VW290ES SXRD 4K video projector is the ultimate in home theatre entertainment at anywhere near the price. The detail on this 4096 x 2160 pixel display is eye opening.

Imagine bringing the truly cinematic quality of 4K into your own home. Now you can make this a reality with the VPL-VW290ES Home Cinema projector. The VPL-VW290ES produces true 4K resolution images with Sony’s native 4K (4096 x 2160) SXRD panels – that’s over four times the quality of Full HD.

Sony VPL-VW290ES SXRD 4K Video Projector

Designed for your home cinema room and living room, the VPL-VW290ES delivers stunning, detail-packed images and incredibly lifelike colour like never before. And with 1,500 ANSI lumens brightness, you’re guaranteed an exceptional picture.

Sony X1 Processor For Projector: Sony’s X1 for projector technology takes their acclaimed BRAVIA TV video processing technology and optimises it for projection. The processor combines innovative technologies for high-precision frame analysis, with features like Dynamic HDR Enhancer and Super Resolution for high-quality images.

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 theatre distribution. See corner-to-corner clarity and watch movies from much closer than you would in Full HD.

Dynamic HDR Enhancer: Dynamic HDR Enhancer powered by X1 for projector enhances contrast scene by scene in combination with iris-controlled light output control to deliver stunning 4K HDR images.

Motorized Zoom Lens & Wide Lens Shift: Installing this projector in your room is easy with a 2.06x motorized zoom with a wide lens shift range. Adjust the position of the projector up to 85% vertically and 31% horizontally to get just the right angle for your movies.

1500 Lumens For High Brightness: Savour the action with up to 1,500 lumens of brightness, generated by a 225W lamp, for vibrant images even on screens from 60″ to 300″/1524mm to 7620mm (diagonal). No need to keystone correct with up to 80% Lens Shift.

Native 4K SXRD Panel: The advanced Silicon X-tal Reflective Display (SXRD) panel technology featured in Sony’s digital theatre 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: The 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.

Super-Resolution Reality Creation for 4K Content: Sony’s exclusive Reality Creation technology analyses images right down to the pixel level. It then employs pattern-matching algorithms developed over years of movie production to enhance details even without increasing digital picture noise. It also upscales existing Full HD Blu-ray Disc and DVD movies to near 4K quality.

Watch For Longer With A 225W Ultra-High Pressure Lamp: Enjoy up to 6,000* hours of viewing time (in low mode) from a long-lasting lamp. This means fewer lamp swaps, simpler maintenance, and lower running costs. *Approximate recommended period, in low mode.

4K Motionflow: The powerful video processor in the VPL-VW290ES 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.

Colours Come Alive With TRILUMINOS: Discover true-to-life colours and tones. The VPL-VW290ES incorporates TRILUMINOS colour, 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.

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.

Front-Facing Fan: As the fan is positioned at the front of the projector, you don’t need to worry about wall space and clearance for air inhale/exhaust during installation. This helps maximise throw distance for bigger projected images.

Our Take On The Sony VPL-VW290ES SXRD 4K Video Projector

The VPL-VW290ES is a smart choice for the serious movie watcher. It is rare to find this sort of quality under $10K but the 290 has broken through that barrier offering commercial picture quality in an affordable package. The three SXRD image chips, one each for red, green, and blue, produce extraordinarily rich, saturated colours that are truly enjoyable. It will also excel on non 4K content as the smart and powerful upconversion capabilities improve the picture quality on even 'standard' Blu-ray or DVD discs.

Calibration, Screen & Installation: We can install and calibrate the VPL-VW290ES anywhere in Australia (fees apply) to ISF standards. With a projector at this standard we recommend Stewart Screens.
