About the Sony VPL-XW5000ES

A more compact native 4K projector

Sony has managed to make the VPL-XW5000ES about as compact as a native 4K laser projector can get. It's 30% smaller and 35% lighter than its predecessor thanks to the new 0.61-inch SXRD™ panels and compact Wide Dynamic Range Optics. These newly designed components work in conjunction with the projector's bright, long-lasting laser light source to a deliver rich, lifelike picture of over 8 million pixels.

These newly designed components work in conjunction with the projector's bright, long-lasting laser light source to a deliver rich, lifelike picture of over 8 million pixels. 

Sony processing — optimized for projection

Sony's powerful X1™ series of video processors has helped establish their 4K LED and OLED TVs as top-performing models in recent years. The VPL-XW5000ES uses a version of the X1 that is optimized for 4K/HDR projection. Its object-based Super Resolution technology detects individual objects in a picture and enhances each one for exceptional accuracy and detail.

The X1 Ultimate processor also uses two powerful image databases that work together to improve picture quality in real time — one helps reduce on-screen noise, while the other is used to upscale the resolution. 

Better HDR picture quality

While today's premium 4K TVs look great showing HDR content, some projectors can make HDR look a bit dark or dull. That's due to projectors' limited brightness compared to TVs, as well as the fact that 4K content is mastered for viewing on a TV, not a projector.

The VPL-XW5000ES has a few features — powered by the X1 Ultimate processor — that improve its HDR reproduction. Dynamic HDR Enhancer combines detailed tone mapping with precise light control to deliver bright HDR images without losing shadow detail. And its object-based HDR Remaster analyses the color of individual objects on-screen and adjusts the contrast for a more realistic picture with greater depth and texture.

Banish blur with Motionflow™

The larger the image, the more challenging it is to maintain a smooth, clear picture during fast-paced on-screen action. The VPL-XW5000ES uses Sony's Motionflow — one of the most sophisticated and refined blur-reduction technologies available.

Game big

Want to upsize your screen real estate for more immersive gaming? The VPL-XW5000ES supports 4K at 60Hz with an input lag under 21ms. Or opt for 2K at 120Hz for an even quicker response time of less than 13ms.
