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 lifelike, it’s like looking at the real thing. This is the same resolution defined by Digital Cinema Initiatives for cinema distribution, with pixels one quarter the size of those used by traditional Full HD 1080p projectors. See corner-to-corner clarity and watch movies from much closer than you would in Full HD.
5000 lumens for spectacular brightness
Savor the action with an incredible 5000 lumens brightness, for high contrast across the screen. A highly efficient Z-Phosphor laser light generates the brightness required for vibrant images across the whole screen.
High dynamic contrast for stunning realism
The VPL-VW5000ES’s SXRD™ panels and laser light source help the projector achieve a high dynamic contrast. This means that the full color spectrum—from deep, inky blacks through to vibrant reds, blues and greens—is replicated with fine detail and realism, making every scene spring to life for a truly immersive experience.
Watch for longer with a Z-Phosphor laser light
Inside the VPL-VW5000ES is an ultra-pure, reliable Z-Phosphor laser light source. You'll enjoy perfectly clear 4K pictures plus up to 20,000 hours2 of uninterrupted operation, with no lamp replacement or maintenance.
4K SXRD™: Our most advanced projection technology
Our advanced SXRD™ (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) system features an ultra-fast response rate of 2.5 milliseconds for clear, blur-free images. The panels also minimize the space between the pixels—a feat not achieved by comparable projection technologies—allowing our projectors to deliver smoother images. Additionally, the decision to include three SXRD™ panels means this projector can display each primary color simultaneously, and with light passing through each panel twice, this allows exceptionally deep blacks to be reproduced for a more powerful viewing experience.
