VPL-VW5000ES 4K SXRD Home Cinema Projector

Make every movie an unforgettable experience with the world’s most advanced Home Theater projector. An ideal match for the largest and most lavishly equipped Home Theater rooms, the VPL-VW5000ES brings movies to life in vibrant 5000 lumens brightness and the lifelike detail of native 4K.


Native 4K resolution for lifelike pictures

With more than four times the resolution of Full HD, native 4K offers 8.8 million pixels (4096 x 2160) for a picture that is incredibly lifelike, which is why it is the resolution defined by the DCI (Digital Cinema Initiative) for theater distribution. See corner-to-corner clarity and watch movies from much closer than you would in Full HD.

5000 lumens for spectacular brightness

Savor the action with an incredible 5000 lumens brightness, for high contrast across the screen. A highly efficient Z-Phosphor laser light generates the brightness required for vibrant images across the whole screen.

Native 4K SXRD panel

The VPL-VW5000ES’s SXRD™ panels and laser light source help the projector achieve a high dynamic contrast. This means that the full color spectrum—from deep, inky blacks through to vibrant reds, blues and greens—is replicated with fine detail and realism, making every scene spring to life for a truly immersive experience. 

Dual contrast control

In addition to the dynamically-controlled laser light output, an Advanced Iris is also incorporated. Both the iris control and laser can be adjusted independently and dynamically, to optimize light output for both dark and bright well-lit scenes. The result is deeper blacks than ever, as well as bright, vibrant colors where needed. The infinite dynamic contrast makes every scene spring to life with detail and realism.

Super-resolution Reality Creation for 4K Contents

Sony's exclusive Reality Creation technology analyzes images right down to the pixel level. It then employs pattern-matching algorithms developed over years of movie production to enhance crispness even without increasing digital picture noise. It also upscales existing Full HD Blu-ray Disc™ and DVD movies to near 4K quality

See deeper blacks with 4K SXRD™ panels

Latest SXRD panels deliver even better contrast, as well as native 4K resolution. With SXRD projection, you'll see rich, inky blacks, clear cinematic motion and smooth images. Improvements to the reflective silicon layer now mean even better light control, for precisely delivered shadows and blacks.

HDR compatibility: every image comes to life

Get the most from your projector when viewing new UHD Blu-ray and streaming services with High Dynamic Range (HDR). HDR video offers a vastly expanded brightness range to deliver far more realistic, high-contrast images and brilliant colors. Compatible with both HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) formats, Sony's home projectors reproduce color and contrast faithfully to the creators’ intent.

Watch bright images for longer with a Z-Phosphor™ laser light  

The VPL-VW5000ES uses an ultra-pure and reliable Z-Phosphor™ laser light source. This Sony-developed light source offers bright images for up to 20,000 hours of uninterrupted operation—no lamp replacement and virtually zero maintenance.

Digital Focus Optimizer

Optimum focus is achieved, not only optically, but also digitally, by the Digital Focus Optimizer. It compensates in advance from the possible optical degradation of the lens, then outputs the optimum corrected images, so that even the focus in the corners is better than ever.

Select from nine calibrated picture modes

Quickly style the picture to what you’re watching or playing. Select from nine calibrated picture modes, including two theater film modes, theater digital, reference, TV, photo, game, bright cinema and bright TV. An advanced HSV (Hue Saturation Value) color tuning tool gives you even more control.
