Breathtaking Picture Quality



Native 4K SXRD Panels

The advanced SXRD (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) panel technology featured in Sony’s digital cinema 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.



Sony’s 4K Projection

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 incredibly lifelike, which is why it is the resolution defined by the DCI (Digital Cinema Initiatives) for cinema distribution. See corner-to-corner clarity and watch movies from much closer than you would in Full HD.



See deeper blacks with 4K SXRD panels

Latest SXRD panels deliver even better contrast, as well as native 4K resolution. SXRD projection offers rich, inky blacks, as well as clear cinematic motion and image smoothness. Improvements to the silicon layer now mean even better light control, for precisely delivered shadows and blacks



Bright images for years with a Z-PhosphorTM 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 the scene content, to achieve both deep, inky blacks and vibrant color.



2000lm for High brightness


Savour the action with up to 2000 lumens of brightness, generated by Sony’s Z-Phosphor laser light source, for vibrant images even on screens up to 300” (762 cm) .


HDR Compatible

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.




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 DiscTM and DVD movies to near 4K quality.




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.



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 Cinema mode to retain the original 24 fps cadence.
