The ultimate 4K Home Theatre projector 

Enjoy breath-taking movies with intense realism

Home Theatre doesn’t get any better than this. See every scene in unmatched clarity and incredible detail on a 4K projector featuring the best of Sony, including Advanced SXRD panels with TRILUMINOS™ colour, Reality Creation Engine for 4K upscaling, and ultra-detailed 1000000:1 dynamic contrast.

4K Ultra HD

Experience total 4K immersion

The ultimate 4K experience is as real as it gets with images that are incredibly clear and lifelike.

1000000:1 contrast

Supreme contrast

The brightest whites are one million times brighter than the deepest blacks for the finest detail in dark shadow.

2000 lumens

Optimum brightness

Savour the action with the brightness you need to see vibrant images, even in dark or well-lit rooms.

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.

Bringing the cinema home

Professional cinema standards give you the detail, depth, and colour of your local movie theatre in the comfort of your private screening room.

DCI-based 4K

Pure 4K detail

The VPL-VW1100ES supports DCI-based 4K (4096 x 2160), the standard adopted by Digital Cinema Initiatives for professional cinema distribution. Up to 60 frames per second are displayed in 4K for smoother pictures with unrivalled depth.

Wider colour space

Wider colour spectrum

With a specially designed colour filter, this projector can display the full gamut of colours provided by the DCI specification for movies, and supports the Adobe RGB standard for photos.

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.

High resolution lens

Lifelike pictures

With High Resolution, the 4K ARC-F lens ensures faithful projection of pictures with rich detail across the screen.

Floating focus system

No curvature

The 4K ARC-F lens includes a floating focus system that corrects field curvature occuring during focal adjustment of images.

Extra low dispersion glass

Minimal colour bleeds

Extra low dispersion glass in the 4K ARC-F lens optimises the refractive index for green, red, and blue light to give clear, sharp images.

Sit closer

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.

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 Iris 3
4K SXRD Panels

Deeper blacks

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.


Natural colours

Enjoy more tones and textures than a standard Home Theatre projector.


Fine detail

See hard-to-reproduce greens, reds, and blues in every subtle shade and hue.

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.

Lens protector

Keep your lens dust-free

A lens protector opens and closes automatically when the projector is turned on and off.

Home automation compatible

Syncs with smart homes

Ideal for automated home systems with RS232 interface, RJ45 control, and IR-IN terminal.

Easy 3D entertainment

A built-in 3D transmitter synchronises the supplied glasses with the projector, so you can start watching 3D movies quicker. Upscale 2D films to 3D and enjoy classic movies in a whole new dimension, or watch anamorphic images and 3D films simultaneously without having to change the lens. High emission power gives you a strong signal anywhere in the room. The Amazing Spider-Man™ - Now available on Blu-ray™

Movie ready

The film friendly VPL-VW1100ES, with a resolution of 4096 x 2160, gives a cinema-like sense of reality, whatever you’re watching. Play movies in formats such as CinemaScope and American Vista with less black bars at the top and bottom of the screen.

Picture Position Memory

Choose settings directly from your remote

Lens zoom and shift settings for up to five screen formats can be stored for easy recall and quicker viewing. Switch between formats by pressing the POSITION button on your remote control. With Picture Position Memory, a film with a 2.35:1 aspect ratio fills the screen with minimal black bars.
