Which Sony 4K Projector is Right for You?

Nothing beats a projector if you want a supersized screen in your home theater. And when it comes to home theater projectors, it's hard to beat Sony.

Since then, they’ve improved and expanded the line, with a model to fit just about any home theater, from small and cozy to colossal.

To better understand the differences in the Sony range, we've selected three new laser-based models that give you a good understanding of the most important features.

Cozy doesn't mean small screens; this projector brings sharp 4K resolution to screens up to 200” diagonally. Laser projectors were once seemingly made of "unobtanium," but the XW-5000ES puts laser performance within reach. The 2000 lumens of brightness assure you of a vivid, colorful picture with excellent contrast. Sony's X1 Ultimate processor uses advanced algorithms to analyze every frame and boost image detail naturally. The MotionFlow video processing smooths fast-action content like sports even in 4K resolution. Plus, the low input lag makes it excellent for gaming on your biggest screen.

This level of brightness produces vibrant images even in well-lit rooms, so you can do your game day parties without a darkened room. The native 4K SXRD panel offers 8.3 million pixels of high brightness, ink-dark black levels, and rich color tones for superb images with any content. In addition, dynamic HDR Enhancer and Object-based HDR Remaster display Sony's mastery of image processing, exacting the most from HDR content for eye-popping picture quality.

Sony VPL-XW7000ES: The Ultimate Experience

The recently introduced VPL-XW7000ES really ups the ante with an incredible 3200 lumens from its laser light source. That kind of brightness means an excellent viewing experience in very well-lit spaces. The VPL-XW7000ES also includes the flagship X1 Ultimate Processor, enhancing images with lighting speed for texture, color, and contrast for amazingly realistic pictures. In addition, the wide dynamic range optics make for a surprisingly compact design, rich, natural colors even at high brightness levels, and stunning contrast that makes images appear three-dimensional. The VPL-XW7000ES also adds a motorized zoom lens with wide lens shift for perfect, optically lossless setups in any size room. This level of performance is what prompts the director of Top Gun: Maverick to specify Sony projectors for his personal theaters.
