4K – more than 4x the quality of Full HD
4K is the very best the big screen can deliver. The VPL-VW500ES gives you that very same, fully immersive cinema experience, at home.
Incredible 4096 x 2160 resolution pictures and an exceptionally high dynamic contrast ratio of 200,000:1 produce details so stunning, you may never leave the house to see a movie again.
2D and 3D upscaled to 4K
While more and more native 4K material is becoming available, our Reality Creation technology means you can enjoy your current 2D and 3D discs, upscaled for an incredible 4K experience. You’ll get the very best from your favourite movies and notice even more detail than before – even in 3D.
No compromises: the VPL-VW500ES provides 4096 x 2160 4K resolution (the DCI standard in digital cinemas). We used our professional cinema expertise to develop 4K SXRD panels and produce a 4K native picture with no artificial enhancement of pixels.
Drawing on optical technology developed for the VPL-VW1000ES, we’ve achieved both high brightness (1,700 ANSI lumens) and high contrast (200,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio) in the VPL-VW500ES. So, you’ll see crystal-clear, bright, detail-packed images – even in well-lit rooms.
4K digital drive panels minimise the space between pixels in every frame with an incredible response rate of 2.5-milliseconds. That’s much faster, and more stable, than an LCD TV and produces ultra-smooth, dot-free pictures with natural, fluid movement – whatever the action.
The VPL-VW500’s optical engine and SXRD panels incorporate our Triluminous Display technology to produce a much broader colour range, reproducing more tones and textures than a standard projector system. The result is greater purity, depth and realism.
We’ve enhanced our Motionflow technology. ‘Combination’ mode uses our ‘Film Projection’ and ‘Motion Enhancer’, adding frames to reduce blur and maintain brightness in thrilling, fast-moving scenes. Cinema purists can choose ‘True Cinema’ to retain the original 24 frames per second.
A built-in RF transmitter synchronises with any RF 3D glasses for wider coverage, greater stability, and there’s no need for a cable.
As well as native 4K material, you can see your current Full HD Blu-ray™ or DVD movie collection upscaled for a 4K experience. Reality Creation is a Super Resolution technology that radically enhances Full HD content, even upscaling 3D movies for 4K.
Drawing on the same technology used to downscale 4K material for Full HD, the VPL-VW500ES gives you a near native 4K experience with discs ‘Mastered in 4K’. It’s as close as you can get to the 4K-pixel resolution and expanded colour range of the original.
The VPL-VW500ES can show up to 60 frames per second in 4K (at colour signal YUV 4:2:0). It’s the new 4K industry standard and is much higher than the earlier 24p. The result is a smoother image with superior colour and realism.
A smaller optical engine means the VPL-VW500ES is approximately 18cm shorter in length than our leading projector, the VPL-VW1000ES, so there’s greater flexibility for installation.
Because the fan is positioned at the front, you don't need to worry about wall space and room for air inhale/exhaust when you install. This helps maximize the throw distance for bigger projected images.
A 2.06 motorised zoom lens and wide lens shift range of 85% vertical and 31% horizontal gives greater installation flexibility – even when the ceiling is very high.
The VPL-VW500ES is compatible with many home automation systems. It has an RS232 interface, RJ45 control, and IR-IN terminal.
After extended periods, colour can be automatically calibrated to the original factory condition. There’s no need for extra calibration equipment or cameras; a built-in colour sensor stores all the necessary information.
A correction tool allows you to adjust the hue, saturation, and brightness of each colour to get exactly the picture you want.
This feature remembers the position of the zoom lens. You can match it to a movie’s aspect ratio (including 16:9 and Cinemascope) and store the settings for a future viewing.
Ensures the red and blue elements in each pixel are precisely positioned against green. Adjustments can be made by as little as 0.1 pixels for optimum clarity.
To get the best from your projector, the VPL-VW500ES has a USB port for the latest firmware updates.
