4K Home Theatre Projector
Real-life clarity with cinematic 4K
Over four times the detail of Full HD
With more than four times the resolution of Full HD, 4K offers 8.8 million pixels for a picture that’s so incredibly lifelike, it’s like looking at the real thing. Every detail is perfectly clear, with less jagged edges and visible pixels than on a conventional Full HD projector.
Pro-style cinema lens
Precise detail in every corner of the image
The super High Resolution 4K All-Range Crisp Focus (ARC-F) lens, featuring an 18-piece lens structure and floating focus system, is similar to the lens found in a 4K digital cinema projector. It combines the Sony HD SXRD projector lens and 4K digital cinema technologies with high power for intense detail across the entire screen. The floating lens group (in blue) and focusing lens group (in green) move simultaneously to give high precision in every corner of the image.
With 4K resolution, you can sit closer to the screen without compromising depth and realism. The best viewing position for 4K is at a distance of approximately 1.5 times the height of the projector screen (PH), compared to 3 times the height of the screen for Full HD.
Includes a 2.06 motorised zoom with a wide lens shift range of 80% vertical and 31% horizontal so you can easily adjust projector position.

Upscale everything with Reality Creation
Stunning picture quality, whatever you’re watching
Upscale your existing Blu-ray Disc™ and DVD movies to near 4K-quality. Every pixel is analysed and matched with a picture patterning database compiled from over 10 years of expertise to enhance colours, contrast, and textures.
Mastered in 4K
The ‘Mastered in 4K’ collection includes classic films, remastered with enhanced colour and detail for Blu-ray Disc. Play these discs on the VPL-VW1100ES with a pixel resolution and colour range that’s almost identical to the 4K original. The movie is down-sampled from the original 4K source at a high bitrate to 2K, then upscaled using the same algorithm to 4K. Total Recall – Now available on Blu-ray™
Intense brightness drives unrivalled contrast
A high-pressure 330W lamp generates intense brightness of 2000 ANSI-lumens for vibrant contrast on screens up to 508cm (200 inches) diagonally. With Dynamic contrast of a million to one, every scene springs to life with fine detail and realism. Enjoy precise detail across the screen, whether you’re watching movies in a dark home theatre or gaming in a sunlit room. The Green Hornet™ – Now available on Blu-ray™
Advanced Iris 3
This unique technology dynamically responds to light levels and selects optimum contrast to match the scene, bringing out the detail in dark shadow, and preventing bright scenes from becoming washed out.
Advanced SXRD (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) panels include a highly reflective liquid crystal layer (in blue) and an alignment layer without bevelled corners and contact divots (in yellow) for an ultra fast response rate of 2.5-milliseconds. Space is minimized between pixels to give dot-free pictures with deep contrast.
Colours that come alive
Discover true-to-life colours and tones. The VPL-VW1100ES incorporates TRILUMINOS™ colour for a broader spectrum, reproducing more tones and textures than a standard projector system. The result is greater purity, depth and realism.
Large exhaust keeps the projector cool
Includes a full range of unobtrusive connections
Top-mounted lamp door for easy access
Cool and functional
Pro styling for easy installation and quiet operation
Designed for the home with a clean, classic design that's easy to operate and enjoy. Cable connections are hidden away at the side of the projector, while the lamp door is easily accessed from the top. A matt black finish cuts reflection and, along with a glossy mask and rear grille, gives a professional look and feel.
Hear your movies, not the fan. Latest noise reduction technology keeps sound down to just 23dB.
Keep your lens dust-free
A lens protector opens and closes automatically when the projector is turned on and off.
Syncs with smart homes
Ideal for automated home systems with RS232 interface, RJ45 control, and IR-IN terminal.
