The Sony VPL-VW790ES is a native 4K laser projector that uses Sony’s proprietary SXRD optical system.
“It’s designed for the serious home cinema market, and its killer application is that it makes high dynamic range video look better – much better – than it ever has before on any halfway affordable projector.”
Purchase this projector at rrp and get a completely free professional home cinema projector calibration in your own home, this is the only way you will get a “proper” calibration done on your equipment, it has to be done in the room its being used.

Sony’s most affordable premium compact 4K laser projector
Compact, native 4K resolution home projector with laser light source makes it an ideal choice to fit in your home cinema room, the Sony VPL-VW790ES brings movies to life with extraordinary cinematic detail, colour and contrast. This compact size home projector combines an advanced laser light source with the same Sony 4K SXRD panel technology that’s found in our professional cinema projectors. Crisply detailed native 4K images (4096 x 2160) offer four times the resolution of Full HD, pulling you right into the heart of the action with unprecedented clarity. An aspherical front lens is mounted on the Sony VPL-VW790ES allowing for a larger area of focus range, expressing precise details in every corner of the screen. You’ll experience fabulously rich cinematic colours, smooth motion and spectacular contrast. Savour the action with 2,000 lumens brightness and see vibrant images. You’re fully prepared with compatibility for the latest 4K standards, including High Frame Rates and HDR (High Dynamic Range) – so you’ll get the very best out of today’s content, and tomorrow’s.
Watch brightness for longer with a Z-Phosphor laser light The VPL-VW790ES uses an ultra-pure and reliable ZPhosphor 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. Native 4K SXRD™ panel Featured in Sony’s digital cinema projectors, advanced SXRD (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) panel technology delivers native 4K (4096 x 2160) resolution images, with more than four times the detail of Full HD. Fine details are wonderfully clear and natural, without jagged edges or visible pixels. See richer, deeper blacks Latest SXRD 4K panels deliver even better contrast, as well as native 4K resolution. SXRD projection offers rich, inky blacks, as well as clear cinematic motion and image smoothness. Improvements to the panel’s reflective silicon layer now mean even better light control, for precisely reproduced shadows and blacks. 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 optimise light output for both dark and bright well-lit scenes. The result is deeper blacks than ever, as well as bright, vibrant colours where needed. The infinite dynamic contrast makes every scene spring to life with detail and realism.
Digital Focus Optimiser Optimum focus is achieved, not only optically but digitally, by the Digital Focus Optimiser. It compensates the possible optical degradation of the lens in advance then outputs the optimum corrected images, so that even the focus in the corners is better than ever. Super-resolution Reality Creation Exclusive Reality Creation technology analyses images right down to the pixel level. It uses powerful patternmatching algorithms developed over years of movie production to enhance image crispness without increasing digital picture noise. It also upscales existing full HD Blu-ray Disc™ and DVD movies to near 4K quality. HDR compatibility: every image comes to life Get the most from today’s UHD Blu-ray and streaming services with High Dynamic Range. HDR video offers an expanded brightness range that delivers more realistic, high-contrast images and brilliant colours. Compatible with both HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) formats. Sony’s home cinema projectors reproduce colour and contrast that’s faithful to the creator’s intention. HDMI 18 Gbps compatibility With an increase in 4K HDR 60P content, the Sony VPL-VW790ES is now HDMI 18 Gbps compatible for smoother expressions of gradations. 4K Motionflow The powerful video processor in the Sony VPL-VW790ES offers Motionflow for smooth and clear motion, even when viewing 4K content. Motionflow adds frames to reduce blur, while maintaining brightness, making it ideal for fast-moving sports content. Cinema purists can choose True Theatre mode to retain the original 24fps.
2,000 lumens for high brightness
Enjoy the action with up to 2,000 lumens brightness from the laser light source, for vibrant images on screens. Picture Position Memory stores your settings Store lens, zoom, and shift settings for up to five screen formats for easy recall. Picture Position Memory remembers key settings so you can quickly watch movies in the ideal format. Match aspect ratios, including 16:9 and Cinemascope, and store these settings in the projector. Select from nine calibrated picture modes Quickly set the picture to what you’re watching or playing.
