An ideal choice to fit in your home cinema room, the VPL-VW790ES brings movies to life with extraordinary cinematic detail, colour and contrast. This compact size home projector combines an advanced laser light source with the same Sony 4K SXRD panel technology that’s found in their professional cinema projectors.
X1 for projector
Our X1™ for projector technology takes our acclaimed BRAVIA TV video processing technology and optimises it for projection. The processor combines innovative technologies for high-precision frame analysis, with features like Dynamic HDR Enhancer and Super Resolution for high-quality images.
Dynamic HDR Enhancer
Our Dynamic HDR Enhancer processes HDR content frame by frame to deliver stunning contrast. It further enhances contrast in combination with iris, which makes bright scenes brighter and dark scenes darker, for the ultimate HDR experience.
SXRD™ for uncompromising picture quality
Our advanced SXRD panel technology offers rich, inky blacks and clear cinematic motion and image smoothness. High heat and light resistance also ensures spectacularly high and stable brightness.
Dual Contrast Control
Both the iris control and laser can be adjusted independently and dynamically, to optimise light output for dark and high contrast scenes. The result is deeper blacks and infinite dynamic contrast, making every scene spring to life with detail and realism.
Super Resolution Reality Creation
The VPL-VW790ES analyses every pixel of every image and then employs pattern-matching algorithms developed over years of movie production to enhance crispness without increasing digital picture noise.
Our Motionflow technology adds frames to reduce blur while maintaining brightness, creating smooth and clear motion even in 4K – ideal for sport
