Z-Phosphor Laser Light
Ultra-pure and reliable, the Sony VPL-VW870ES uses a highly advanced Z-Phosphor laser light source. This offers many advantages, the first of which is the picture with superb levels of contrast and colour realism. The design should also last longer than a typical projector bulb and also provide more consistent performance over its lifetime.
Native UHD 4K resolution for the ultimate detail
Thanks to their massive experience in all aspects of entertainment, Sony are now able to bring the detail of 4K Ultra HD resolution to the home cinema. Simply put, 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.
Infinite contrast for stunning black levels
A dynamic contrast of infinity:1 brings every scene to life with exquisite detail and realism. Laser light output is adjusted dynamically depending on content of the scene, achieving both deep, inky blacks and vibrant colours.
Dual contrast control
Featuring a dynamically-controlled laser light output and Advanced Iris, the VPL-VW870ES offer Dual Contrast Control. Both the iris control and laser can be adjusted independently, and dynamically, to optimise light output for both dark and bright well-lit scenes. The result is deeper blacks than ever, as well as bright, vibrant colours where needed. The infinite dynamic contrast makes every scene spring to life with detail and realism.
Corner-to-corner sharpness with the ARC-F lens
For pristine image quality across the entire screen, the VPL-VW870ES features an All-Range Crisp Focus (ARC-F) lens. This large-aperture lens adopts an all-glass design for its 18 elements, including six extra low-dispersion (ELD) elements. This ensures optimal convergence of the red, green and blue primaries even at the extreme edges of the image for a clear and vivid image wherever you look.
HDR for the most vivid picture quality
Get the most from today's UHD Blu-ray and streaming services with High Dynamic Range. HDR video offers an expanded brightness range that delivers more realistic, high-contrast images and brilliant colours. Compatible with both HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) formats. Sony’s home cinema projectors reproduce colour and contrast that's true to the director’s creation.
Super Resolution Reality Creation
Watching a 4K signal from a source such as UHD Blu-ray, Netflix or Amazon Prime is awesome but the VPL-VW870ES still excels with other resolutions, too. Exclusive Reality Creation technology analyses images right down to the pixel level. It uses powerful pattern-matching algorithms developed over years of movie production to enhance image crispness without increasing digital picture noise. It also upscales 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.
Picture Position Memory stores your settings
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 the projector.
Select from nine calibrated picture modes
Quickly set the picture to what you’re watching or playing. Select from nine calibrated picture modes, including two theatre film modes, cinema digital, reference, TV, photo, game, bright cinema, and bright TV. An advanced HSV (Hue Saturation Value) colour tuning tool gives you even more control.
