Bring an over 100” large display immersive experience to your life easily without changing your current room designs

The VPL-VZ1000ES Ultra Short Throw projector combines advanced SXRD™ imaging technology with a long-lasting laser light source for exquisitely detailed, high contrast native 4K images with HDR compatibility.

The reliable, energy-efficient Z-Phosphor laser source allows quick start and maintenance-free operation with no need for lamp exchanges - translating into ease of use compared with conventional projectors.

The VPL-VZ1000ES is perfectly suited to home cinema use. The projector can be situated up close to a screen, allowing viewers to enjoy the realistic sensation of 4K images at a closer distance of up to 120 inches (2.2m) without producing shading off the image.

A convenient lens shift function, easily adjustable feet and ventilation system simplifies installation in any home theatre or living room space. The compact VPL-VZ1000ES occupies even less space on your AV cabinet - ideal for any home entertainment set-up, even in limited space.


Native 4K clarity with over four times the resolution of Full HD

Advanced SXRD panel technology featured in Sony's digital cinema projectors delivers native 4K (4096 x 2160) resolution images, with more than four times the detail of Full HD. Fine details are wonderfully clear and natural, without jagged edges or visible pixels.

Laser phosphor light source delivers stunning images

The projector's highly efficient Z-Phosphor laser light source is combined with SXRD panel technology to deliver high-contrast 4K pictures with excellent colour accuracy and stability.

HDR compatible

Take full advantage of High Dynamic Range (HDR) both for 4K 24p and 4K 60p for stunning contrast and an impressive range of brightness levels, from searing highlights to richly detailed dark scenes.

TRILUMINOS™ Display for wide, cinema-like colour gamut

Enjoy an extended range of spectacular colours, far wider than a standard projection system.

Get closer with Ultra Short Throw projection

The VPL-VZ1000ES can project large, detail-packed 4K images up to 120 inches (2.2m) diagonal onto a screen. Distracting glare and shadows are greatly reduced, with no danger of your audience breaking the projector beam.

Virtually no maintenance

The reliable, energy-efficient laser light source reduces lifetime running costs compared with traditional lamp-based projectors. Replacement cycles reduce maintenance overheads even further.

Flexible installation options

The projector can be operated floor-standing, ceiling mounted or used for rear projection. A lens shift feature, easy adjustable feet and simple ventilation system simplifies convenient installation in any home cinema or living room.
