Features

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.

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 an incredibly lifelike image with the same resolution defined by the DCI (Digital Cinema Initiative) for cinema distribution. See corner-to-corner clarity and watch movies from much closer than you would in Full HD.

∞:1 dynamic contrast for stunning realism

A dynamic contrast of ∞:1 brings every scene to life with exquisite detail and realism. Laser light output is adjusted dynamically depending on content of the scene, achieving both deep, inky blacks and vibrant colours.

Longer lasting brightness with Z-Phosphor™ laser light

"The ultra-pure, reliable Z-Phosphor laser light source lets you enjoy exceptional 4K pictures with consistently uncompromised brightness levels. You can also enjoy up to 20,000 hours of uninterrupted operation, with no lamp replacement and virtually zero maintenance.

2,000 lumens for high brightness

Enjoy the action with up to 2,000 lumens brightness from the laser light source, for vibrant images on screens up to 762 cm (300").

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.

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 VPL-VW760ES incorporates TRILUMINOS colour, reproducing more tones and textures than standard projectors. 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 faithfully reproduced skin tones.

4K Motionflow™

Motionflow ensures smooth, clear on-screen action, even when viewing 4K content. Extra frames are added to reduce blur while maintaining brightness in fast-moving scenes. Cinema purists can choose True Cinema mode to retain the original 24 fps frame rate of genuine movie projection.

Compact, practical design

The projector's compact size gives extra flexibility for installing in your home cinema set-up.

Wider zoom and shift lens

The projector's powered zoom lens provides maximum flexibility for home installations, including high ceiling mounting.

Virtually no maintenance

The reliable, energy-efficient laser light source reduces lifetime running costs compared with traditional lamp-based projectors. Replacement cycles reduce maintenance overheads even further.

Auto Calibration

After extended operating periods, colour can be automatically calibrated to the original factory conditions.There’s no need for extra calibration equipment or cameras; a built-in colour sensor stores all the necessary information.

HDCP 2.2 compatibility

Both HDMI inputs are compatible with HDCP 2.2, the latest content protection standard.

Low fan noise

Whisper-quiet 24dB fan noise* minimises disturbance for your audience.
