Advanced SXRD (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display): Advanced SXRD
(Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) panels with an ultra-fast response rate of
2.5 milliseconds minimize the space between pixels for a smoother, more detailed
image. Consisting of a thin LCD layer backed with a highly reflective silicon
plate, SXRD splits the white light of the lamp into different colors using
mirrors and sends them to a red, green, and blue panel in 4K resolution. Light
passes in and out of each panel, allowing more effective light blocking for
exceptionally deep blacks.
Full Digital Cinema 4K: Sony's VPL-VW675ES SXRD 4K video
projector offers Full Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI)-based 4096 x 2160 resolution, delivering a cinematic 4K experience in
your home. With 4096 x 2160 resolution and pixels one quarter the size of those
from traditional 1080p projectors, the Sony 4K projector delivers smooth,
lifelike images with fewer artifacts, even on home theater screens up to 300" in
2D (or 150" in 3D). Now you can sit closer to the action, while jagged edges and
revealed pixels are eliminated.
4K Reality Creation Upscaling: Dramatically improving your viewing experience, the
projector's Reality Creation engine for 4K upscaling enhances both the
"Mastered in 4K" Blu-ray Discs and high definition 1080p content including 3D
video. Now you can watch all your favorite HD movies and television shows in 4K
(3840 x 2160).
Dual HDMI 2.0a Inputs: The Sony VPL-VW675ES is fitted with two HDMI 2.0a
inputs to connect your high-definition and ultra-high definition sources; such as Blu-ray/DVD player,
Satellite/Cable receiver, game system, or AV receiver. The projector also
supports HDR sources, like Ultra-HD Blu-ray players. In addition, the HDMI
inputs can be used to connect a PC to this TV. The HDMI inputs will accept
4K/60Hz, 1080p (24/60Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals.
- HDCP 2.2: HDCP 2.2 is supported only by the projector's
HDMI 2 input. HDCP 2.2 is short for "High bandwidth Digital Content
Protection" and is used for 4K video copyright protection for compatibility
with 4K Blu-ray players and 4K Satellite/Cable providers.
- 4:4:4 Color Subsampling: All HDMI 2.0a inputs will
support up to 4:4:4 chroma subsampling for full color data rendering of 4K
video (30/60fps). With 4:4:4 color, luminance (brightness) and chroma
(color) are sampled at the same rate, resulting in an RGB color palette as
big as the video sampling rate for a video image with more total colors,
plus greater color accuracy and detail.
- HDR (High Dynamic Range): The Sony projector's HDMI 2.0a inputs
support HDR (High Dynamic Range) content. HDR reproduces a greater dynamic
range of luminosity or brightness levels, bringing greater contrast to the
screen. This increased contrast reveals the subtle nuances of the image,
from detailed blacks and shadows to the brightest whites and colors, plus
- Wide Color Gamut (BT.2020): The BT.2020 color standard
delivers a much wider color gamut and represents about 75% of the total
visual color spectrum, while the current Rec. 709 color standard selected as
the color space for HDTV and early generation 4K Ultra HDTV covers only 35%
of the total visual color spectrum.
Note: The projector does not offer any analog video inputs.
Color Technologies: The Sony VPL-VW675ES incorporates
Triluminos Color, Deep Color, and x.v.Color technologies for perfect color and
- TRILUMINOS Color: The Sony projector incorporates
Sony's Triluminos Color technology to create a heightened sense of depth and
incredibly true, natural shades of colors. Hard-to-reproduce reds, aqua
blues and emerald greens are displayed beautifully, so landscapes and
seascapes look more vivid. Faces look better too, with natural skin tones.
- Deep Color: The projector also supports Deep Color
which allows the color depth of video signals passing through HDMI to be
raised. The number of colors that could be expressed by 1 pixel was 24 bits
(16,777,216 colors) with a standard HDMI jack. However, the number of colors
which can be expressed by 1 pixel is 36 bits with a Deep Color enabled HDMI
jack. Since the gradation of the depth of a color can be expressed more
finely with more bits, continuous color changes can be more smoothly
- x.v.Color: The 4K projector also supports x.v.Color,
offering a wider color range than the current broadcast standard. For the
x.v.Color feature to be useful, the entire video production chain must be
280W High Pressure Lamp w/ Dynamic Lamp Control: The
Sony VPL-VW675ES employs a 280W high pressure. Enjoy up to 6,000 hours of watch
time (in low mode) from this long-lasting mercury lamp. This means fewer lamp
swaps, simpler maintenance, and lower running costs. Sony's dynamic lamp control
technology perfectly establishes vibrant, cinema-quality brightness levels on
your favorite 2D or 3D movies and TV shows.

lens and a wide lens shift range provide further installation flexibility and
remarkable performance in nearly every screening room. The Sony VPL-VW675ES
video projector can produce a 4K image that is adjustable between 60" and 300".
The projector's adjustable lens provides a wide range of placement possibilities
for a given screen size.
| Screen Size || Throw Distance |
|80" ||91"- 187" |
|100" ||115" - 235" |

Installation Adjustments: During the initial setup, or
subsequent adjustment, these features help optimize performance and offer
- Lens Shift: Lens Shift lets you raise, lower, or reposition the
projected image without changing the angle relationship between the
projector and the screen. It also reduces the need to physically move the
projector horizontally or vertically to fit the image within the borders of
the screen. This projector has a vertical lens shift of +85% -80% and a
horizontal lens shift of +/-31%.
- Image Flip: Flips the image vertically or horizontally.
- Blanking: Allows you to adjust the displayable region
within the four directions of the screen.
- Panel Alignment: This feature allows you to adjust the
gaps in the color of characters or the picture.
Note: Sony does not offer Keystone correction for this projector
because it degrades the image. When applying the digital process of keystone
correction to an image it uses compression and scaling to manipulate the
shape of the projected image so the number of individual pixels used is
reduced, lowering the resolution and thus degrading the quality of the image
Auto Calibration & Picture Position Memory: Over time,
the aging of components like the lamp make changes to the look on the screen. A
built in RGB sensor and software allow you to quickly adjust your picture to the
way it looked when first installed. You can also store lens, zoom, and shift
settings for up to five screen formats for easy recall. Picture Position Memory
remembers 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
Motionflow & True Cinema 24p: Whatever you're
watching, you'll enjoy a silk-smooth on-screen look in fast-moving action
sequences with Motionflow. This innovative technology creates and inserts
extra frames between the original frames by first comparing key visual factors
on successive frames, then calculating the split second of missing action in the
sequences. True Cinema 24p mode mimics true movie projection for cinema purists.
