X1 for projector – powerful processing at its heart
At the heart of the impressive Sony VPL-VW290ES is a powerful X1 for projector processor. Derived from their award-winning TVs, the X1 for projector processor enables Dynamic HDR Enhancer, giving amazing scene-by-scene picture realism. The capable processor also handles upscaling to UHD 4K – making the most of all your non-4K content, such as standard Blu-ray discs.
Dynamic HDR Enhancer for spectacular realism
HDR already delivers improved brightness and detail within darker areas of the picture. Dynamic HDR Enhancer takes HDR10 and HLG support and maximises its full potential. Creating a more detailed (dynamic) analysis of each scene boosts the HDR performance, making bright scenes brighter and enhancing the depth and detail within darker scenes.
Native UHD 4K resolution for the ultimate detail
For the highest standards of detail and realism, the Sony VPL-VW290ES delivers native UHD 4K resolution. Projecting in this resolution gives detail and realism that's impossible to achieve with conventional Full HD resolution. UHD 4K resolution is four times greater than the more conventional 1920 x 1080 Full HD projectors and it's a difference you can easily see on a large projection screen.
3-panel SXRD panel for vivid picture quality
Sony uses advanced SXRD (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) panels with an incredibly rapid response rate of just 2.5 milliseconds. This gives the VPLVW290ES smooth, fluid motion that's faster and more stable than typical LCD TVs. Another advantage over TVs is the increased panel resolution of 4096 x 2160. This ensures that movies filmed in panoramic formats, such as CinemaScope and American Vista, have much less of the picture taken up by black bars.
Super Resolution Upscaling
Watching a 4K signal from a source such as UHD Blu-ray, Netflix or Amazon Prime is awesome but the VPL-VW290ES still excels with other resolutions, too. Super Resolution upscaling takes advantage of the powerful X1 for projector processor to upscale existing full HD Blu-ray Disc and DVD movies to near 4K quality.
4K Motionflow makes it smooth
Whatever you're watching, you'll enjoy a liquid smoothness during fast-moving action scenes with Motionflow. This innovative technology creates and inserts extra frames between the original frames, first comparing key visual factors on successive frames, then calculating each split-second of missing action.
Ideal for gaming – low input lag
As well as movies, the Sony VPL-VW290ES also excels with gaming. Input lag reduction reduces the lag from a 4K60p single to just 27ms. This means the image is faster to respond, saving you crucial time in any game where a fast response is critical.
