Native 4K SXRD™ panel
Featured in Sony's digital cinema projectors, advanced SXRD (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) panel technology 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 richer, deeper blacks
Latest SXRD 4K 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 panel's reflective silicon layer now mean even better light control, for precisely reproduced shadows and blacks.

Super-resolution Reality Creation
Exclusive Reality Creation technology analyses images right down to the pixel level. It uses powerful pattern matching algorithms developed over years of movie production to enhance image crispness without increasing digital picture noise. It also upscales existing full HD Blu-ray Disc™ and DVD movies to near 4K quality

Colours come alive with TRILUMINOS™
Discover true-to life colours and tones. The VPLVW290ES incorporates TRILUMINOS colour, reproducing more tones and textures than standard projectors. Hardto-reproduce crimson reds, aqua blues, and emerald greens are displayed beautifully so landscapes and seascapes look more vivid. Faces look better, too, with
faithfully reproduced skin tones.

HDR compatibility: every image comes to life
Get the most from today's UHD Blu-ray and streaming services with High Dynamic Range. HDR video offers an expanded brightness range that delivers more realistic,
high-contrast images and brilliant colours. Compatible with both HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) formats. Sony’s home cinema projectors reproduce colour and
contrast that's faithful to the creator's intention.

HDMI 18 Gbps compatibility

With an increase in 4K HDR 60P content, the VPLVW290ES is now HDMI 18 Gbps compatible for smoother expressions of gradations.

4K Motionflow™
The powerful video processor in the VPL-VW290ES offers Motion flow™ for smooth and clear motion even when viewing 4K content. Motion flow 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.

1,500 lumens for high brightness  

Enjoy the action with up to 1,500 lumens brightness, generated by a 225W lamp, for vibrant images on screens.

Watch for longer with a 225W ultra high pressure lamp
Enjoy up to 6000 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.

Motorised zoom lens and wide lens shift
Installing this projector in your room is easy with a 2.06x motorised 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.

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.
