About the Sony VPL-XW7000ES

A big, bright 4K picture

If you want to create a truly theater-like experience at home, Sony's VPL-XW7000ES is an excellent option. Its premium Advanced Crisp-Focused (ACF) lens widens the focus area to deliver a crisp, clear image from corner to corner. And this projector is a full 60% brighter than its predecessor with a long-lasting laser light source that puts out 3,200 lumens. It's also smaller and lighter than prior generations of Sony Native 4K projectors thanks to the new 0.61-inch SXRD™ panels and compact Wide Dynamic Range Optics.

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-XW7000ES 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-XW7000ES 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.

The newly developed Live Color Enhancer selectively expands the color gamut, for vivid HDR images without unnatural oversaturation. That means skin tones are more realistic even in vibrant, colorful scenes.

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-XW7000ES 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-XW7000ES 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.

Flexible setup

Sony designed the VPL-XW7000ES to be fairly easy to install and set up. It features a powered zoom lens and powered lens shift for adjusting the image either horizontally or vertically, to allow for off-center projector placement.

It also has a 3-setting Picture Position Memory that makes it easy to watch movies in the ideal aspect ratio, including Cinemascope, without an anamorphic lens. But it is compatible with anamorphic lenses if you have one you'd like to use. Its V-stretch function lets you watch content — even 4K content — in your favorite formats. 

For the best picture quality from this 4K projector, we recommend using a 4K-rated projector screen.
