Laser Light Source in Compact Chassis

This compact size home projector combines an advanced laser light source with Sony 4K SXRD panel technology. 

Native 4K Resolution for Life-Like 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’s so incredibly life-like, it’s like looking at the real thing. 

2,200 Lumens for Spectacular Brightness

With an impressive 2,200 lumens brightness and a spectacularly high contrast range, 4K images are clear and bright with sparkling highlights and rich, deep blacks. 

Dual Contrast Control Engine 

Dynamic Laser control & Advanced Iris work together to deliver superb image quality, with deeper blacks while maintaining bright highlights. 

ARC-F Lens Delivers Ideal Clarity

The ARC-F lens features an 18-piece all-glass lens design, which faithfully transfers images from the 4K imagers to the entire screen, from edge to edge. Crisp picture quality is displayed as beautifully as it was captured. 

Digital Focus Optimizer for More Accurate Focus

With the Digital Focus Optimizer, image quality is actively refined and corrected during the viewing experience, ensuring your content always looks tack-sharp. 

SXRD Imagers Times 3

Separate imagers for Red, Green, and Blue channels give you all 8.8 million pixels in full, rich color at every instant.

HDR Compatible

Take full advantage of the latest content produced with HDR (High Dynamic Range) for extremely wide contrast range with an even higher range of brightness levels and volume of colors. 

HDR Reference Mode Option

HDR Reference Mode allows clipping for the brightest displayed pixels to create a richer gradation in bright parts of the scene and retain HDR that’s true to the creator’s intent.

Motionflow Provides Smooth Motion for 4K & HD

On-screen action looks smother with Motionflow, even in 4K content. Action in movies, sports, and video games appears incredibly clear and life-like, as if you were there in real life. 

Advanced SXRD Panel for Outstanding Contrast

4K native SXRD panels produce outstanding native device contrast, reproducing deep blacks by improving the flatness level of the pixel surface. 

Long Lasting 20,000 Hour Z-Phosphor Light Source

The ultra-pure, highly efficient laser light source provides years of illumination with a 20,000 hour rating. No need to worry about when to replace the lamp. 

Reality Creation Upscales Your Favorites

Upscale your existing Blu-ray Disc and DVD movies to near 4K quality. The super-resolution Reality Creation 4K upscaler analyzes every pixel in any direction, then employs a digital signal processing algorithm to map pixels against an ever-evolving picture patterning database, compiled from over 10 years of expertise, to enhance colors, contrast, and textures without enhancing image artifacts. 

Picture Position Memory Stores Your Settings

Lens focus, zoom, and shift settings for up to five screen formats can be stored for easy recall. Picture Position Memories remember these 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. 

Enjoy All Types of Content in 4K HDR

Bring ultra high-definition to everything. The VPL-VW995ES can project content at up to 60 frames per second (fps) in 4K for even smoother images with superior color and realism. Both 18 Gbps HDMI inputs support HDCP 2.2 so you can enjoy more of the latest 4K content services and full resolution gaming. 

Input Lag Reduction for Gamers

Reduced input lag creates a better response time between control input and on-screen action, making video games perform better than ever before. Immerse yourself in your favorite games and beat your opponent to the punch. 

Anamorphic Lens Compatibility for 4K Signals (V-stretch for 4K)

Wide lens compatibility means that you can use your legacy anamorphic lenses with ease, even with 4K content. Watch your content in your favorite formats. 

Colors Come Alive with TRILUMINOS Display

Discover true-to-life colors and tones. The VPL-VW995ES incorporates TRILUMINOS Display 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. 

Built-In 3D Transmitter Synchronizes Entertainment

A built-in 3D transmitter synchronizes the optional glasses with the projector, so you can start watching 3D movies quicker. Upscale 2D films to 3D and enjoy classic movies in a whole new dimension or watch anamorphic images and 3D films simultaneously without changing the lens. High-emission power gives you a strong signal anywhere in the room. 

Short-Throw Lens Available

In case the projector needs to be installed close to the screen, a short-throw lens is available to ensure that the picture quality stays just as beautiful as if it were far away.

Great projector, but...
I've had this projector since January and the picture, especially the colors in bright scenes, is exceptional. The projector's ability to showcase blu-rays is really the strength of this projector. It's quiet, too, and that with the life (20K hours) were the main reasons I bought this projector over the new JVC projectors. However, the projector falls short on 4K UHD DVDs that have darker scenes throughout (i.e. Alien). Even with contrast and light outputs set to "high," the depth or contrast of darker scenes falls short, and for a projector that costs $35K that really is disappointing. Not sure any firmware upgrades will ever produce deeper contrast levels (black levels are good but not as good as some of my older JVC projectors that were NOT native 4K projectors) but I definitely see more shadow and depth on blu-rays vs the 4K - I did a comparison of new 4K Alien. When the team is getting ready to land on the planet and they are slowly rotating above the planet, you can see much more of the planet on bluray vs 4K. Also, would appreciate Sony having an "auto" feature to change between a 4K and Blu-ray vs having to manually make the change via the remote. Again, for the price, this should be an attribute to make my experience more "effortless."

Great picture, should be Made in Japan
I just got mine yesterday. The picture quality is great, even out of the box without calibration.
The lens is massive and looks like it’s high quality (as it should be, at this price).

This projector should be Made in Japan, not China. I have nothing against Chinese made products, but at nearly the top of the range and for $35k, this should be Made in Japan. Ironically, Sony would be paying less import tariffs as well, had they just done the right thing.

It should also come with a proper paper owner’s manual. The CDROM manual is very 1990s... an odd omission by Sony, especially at this price.
