Native 4K SXRDTM Panel

The advanced SXRDTM (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) panel technology featured in Sony's home theater projectors delivers native 4K-resolution (4096 x 2160) images with 8.8 million pixels for an incredibly lifelike picture. SXRD projection offers rich, inky blacks as well as clear cinematic motion and image smoothness, and can reproduce vibrant colors with more tones and textures than a standard projector system.

X1TM for projector

X1TM for projector takes our acclaimed BRAVIA TV video processing and optimizes it for projection. This processor combines innovative technologies for high-precision frame analysis, enabling features like the Dynamic HDR Enhancer and Super Resolution.

2,000-lumen Z-Phosphor laser light source

Savor the action with up to 2,000 lumens of brightness, generated by Sony's Z-PhosphorTM laser light source, for vibrant images even on screens up to 300" (762 cm) (diagonally).

Dual Contrast Control

In addition to the dynamically-controlled laser light output, an Advanced Iris is also incorporated. Both the iris control and laser can be adjusted independently and dynamically, to optimize light output for both dark and bright well-lit scenes. The result is deeper blacks than ever, as well as bright, vibrant colors, where needed. The infinite dynamic contrast makes every scene spring to life with detail and realism.

Watch bright images for years with a Z-phosphorTM laser light

The VPL-VW915ES uses an ultra-pure and reliable Z-PhosphorTM laser light source. This Sony-developed laser light source lets you enjoy perfectly clear 4K pictures at optimal brightness for up to 20,000 uninterrupted hours. No lamp replacements required, and virtually zero maintenance.

Dynamic HDR Enhancer

The Dynamic HDR Enhancer powered by X1TM for projector delivers the best contrast by processing HDR content scene by scene. It further enhances the contrast in combination with laser and iris light output control, which makes bright scenes brighter and dark scenes darker to deliver bright 4K HDR images.

Super-resolution Reality Creation for 4K Contents

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 details without increasing digital picture noise. It also upscales existing Full HD Blu-ray DiscTM and DVD movies to near-4K quality.

Digital Focus Optimizer

Optimum focus is achieved not only optically, but also digitally, with the Digital Focus Optimizer. By analyzing every pixel of the images with our own algorithm and detecting possible optical degradation in advance, the Digital Focus Optimizer performs optimum image quality correction so that the focus is better than ever, even in the corners.

4K aspherical lens for more clarity

The primary projection lens features a large-diameter aspherical element for corner-to-corner sharpness.

4K MotionflowTM

The powerful video processor in the VPL-VW915ES offers MotionflowTM for smooth and clear motion, even when viewing 4K content. MotionflowTM is best for fast-moving sports content, as it adds frames to reduce blur while maintaining brightness. Cinema purists can choose True Theater mode to retain the original 24fps.

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 color. Compatible with both HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) formats, Sony's home theater projectors reproduce color and contrast that's faithful to the creators' intent.

Motorized zoom lens and wide lens shift

Installing this projector in your room is easy with a 2.06x motorized zoom and a wide lens shift range. Adjust the position of the projector by up to 85% vertically and 31% horizontally using lossless optical adjustments, to get just the right angle for your movies.

Picture Position Memory stores your settings

Store focus, zoom, and lens shift settings for up to five screen formats for easy recall. Picture Position Memories store key settings so you can quickly watch movies in the ideal format. Match aspect ratios, including 16:9 and Cinemascope, and store these settings in the projector.
