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.

1,800 lumens for brightness
Savor the action with the brightness you need to get high contrast across the screen. A 280 W ultra-high pressure lamp generates the brightness required for vibrant images on screens up to 300" (762 cm) diagonally. You can enjoy up to 6,000 hours of viewing time (in low mode) from a long-lasting mercury lamp.

4K aspherical lens for more clarity
The primary projection lens features a large-diameter aspherical element for corner-to-corner sharpness.

350,000:1 dynamic contrast for stunning realism
A dynamic contrast of 350,000:1 makes every scene spring to life with fine detail and realism. The powerful video processor is combined with lens iris control to achieve both deep, inky blacks and vibrant color.

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 iris light-output control, which makes bright scenes brighter and dark scenes darker to deliver bright 4K HDR images.

4K MotionflowTM
The powerful video processor in the VPL-VW715ES 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.

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.

Super-resolution Reality Creation for 4K content
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.

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.

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.

Environmental notice
The lamp in this product contains mercury. Disposal of these materials may be regulated due to environmental considerations. For disposal or recycling information, please contact your local authorities or association.

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.

The dream theater
I have had this projector for a few months and it is absolutely incredible. If you are even considering this projector, get it! The lens memory is fast and works well for shifting between different content. Image quality will just make your jaw drop. I have mine shinning on a 1.4 gain screen and it can be watched during the day with open windows and is still bright enough to see even the darker scense. Sony knocked it out of the park with projector. Also I have it mounted to the ceiling in the room and it runs very quite so even during those spooky scenes the sound doesn't take you away from the immersion.

Gorgeous picture
I've owned this projector for a little over a month now and I couldn't be happier with it. My old projector had a terrible time handling hdr sources. The image always appeared too dark. Not this baby. Hdr looks vibrant and has real pop. And the density of color is amazing. Never had a projector reproduce greens and reds so beautifully. And the contrast enhancer is a godsend on movies that might have been mastered a little too dark. One button press and the image comes to life. So happy with this projector.

Best HDR in a projector I've seen so far
I've owned this projector for a couple of weeks now and I have to say I'm super happy with it. My last projector was an early HDR model but it was terrible dim in darker scenes and washed out in brighter ones. Not so with this projector. Highlights here are really bright and detailed while blacks are nice and velvety. Dimmer scenes play out much better than in my prior projector and the contrast enhancer really helps bring some pop into darker scenes. The color saturation is a thing of beauty. Greens have never looked denser or more natural and yellows have a wonderful organic POP. Reds and blues are deep and convincing. And the resolution is gorgeous. Fine details really stand out more than I expected them to. I'm going to get the projector professionally calibrated soon and I'm guessing it'll make an awesome out of the box picture even better. So happy I got this projector. It's really worth every penny if you're looking for the best possible image.
