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.
Motorized zoom lens and 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 225-W lamp, for vibrant images even on screens up to 762 cm/300 inch (diag.).
Super-resolution Reality Creation for 4K Contents
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.
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.
Native 4K SXRD panel
The advanced Silicon X-tal Reflective Display (SXRD) panel technology featured in our 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.
HDMI 18 Gbps capable
With 4K HDR 60P content increasing, the VPL-VW295ES is HDMI 18 Gbps capable for smoother expressions of image gradations.
The powerful video processor in the VPL-VW295ES 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.
Watch for longer with a 225-W 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.
HDR compatibility: every image comes to life
Get the most from today’s UHD Blu-ray discs and streaming services with High Dynamic Range. HDR video offers an expanded brightness range that delivers more realistic, high-contrast images and brilliant colour. Compatible with both HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) formats, Sony’s home cinema projectors reproduce colour and contrast that’s faithful to the creators’ intent.
Ready for immersive 3D
The VPL-VW295ES has a built-in 3D transmitter that supports 3D video in a variety of formats, and can even convert your 2D movie classics to high-quality simulated 3D immersive video. The optional glasses use an industry-standard RF connection, making it easy to upgrade to a 3D theatre experience.
Colours come alive with TRILUMINOS™
Discover true-to-life colours and tones. The VPL-VW295ES 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 style 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.
HDCP 2.2 Compatibility
Both HDMI inputs are compatible with HDCP 2.2—the latest content protection standard.
