Sony VPL-XW5000ES

SXRD laser projectors with native 4K resolution of the XW series (VPL-XW7000ES and VPL-XW5000ES) highlight the most innovative technologies of Sony to deliver an optimal viewing experience, even in environments with high ambient light level.

Sony VPL-XW5000ESSony has incorporated SRXD laser projectors into its offer VPL-XW7000EN and VPL-XW5000EN, two computers with native 4K resolution of 0.61″ (3.840×2.160) allowing you to enjoy a viewing experience with high resolution and contrast in a compact chassis.

Combining wide dynamic range optics with Triluminous Pro delivers a 4K HDR experience on a large format display. Thanks to the image processor based on the technology of the Bravia X1 Ultimate TV series, these projectors provide features such as dynamic HDR enhancement and object-based resolution, to create wide dynamic range and sharpness, which improves the viewing experience.

Sony VPL-XW7000ESThe HDR laser model VPL-XW7000ES offers 3.200 brightness lumens and live color enhancement for high-quality performance, plus intense images, even in brightly lit spaces.

It also has an Advanced Crisp Focused lens (ACF) of 70 mm in diameter with an aspherical front element that offers a wider focus area at 4K level so that more of the image is seen. In addition, there is a floating focus system that provides more stable image performance from corner to corner without causing short to long distance distortion and an extra low dispersion glass to reproduce sharp images without color deviation..

On the other hand, the VPL-XW7000ES is equipped with the newly developed 'live colour enhancement' technology, that provides more intense and vivid images where needed without compromising saturation (For example, skin tone).

Sony VPLXW7000ENThe VPL-XW5000ES is a laser model of 2.000 lumens that offer higher contrast and resolution, with a reduction of 30 % in energy consumption per lumen. In addition, is equipped with object-based HDR remastering to provide real-time image processing. In the XW series, more than a billion colors come to life thanks to Triluminos Pro, with a DCI-P3 color gamut of the 95 %.

Sony VPL-XW5000ES“We 50 years of offering the highest quality projectors for customers to enjoy immersive entertainment experiences, and our native 4K resolution SXRD projectors have been leading the market in providing these experiences for more than a decade.", says Christopher Mullins, Home Cinema Product Manager at Sony Professional Displays and Solutions.

Compared to VPL-VW790ES, the VPL-XW7000ES is a 20 % more compact and a 30 % lighter. The VPL-XW5000ES has a size of 30 % smaller and a weight a 35 % inferior, making it the world's most compact home HDR laser projector with native 4K resolution. The sophisticated compact design adapts to different types of rooms.

Like its predecessors, these new projectors also include the latency reduction mode, that increases the performance of the monitor's reaction speed so that gamers can enjoy the best possible experience. The new XW range supports a 2K input of 120 Hz with an input delay of 13 Ms.

The VPL-XW7000ES and VPL-XW5000ES will replace all Home Cinema lamp projectors, as well as the VPL-VW790ES. The VPL-VW890ES, VPL-VW5000ES and VPL-GTZ380 remain in the range.



  • SXRD panel with native 4K resolution of 0.61″: both models offer a 4K resolution of 3,840×2.160 and 8,3 millions of pixels for realistic images. Thanks to its intense black tones, clear cinematic movements and fluid images, can reproduce colors with more shades and textures than a conventional projector.
  • Wide dynamic range optics: high resolution and contrast deliver immersive viewing experiences. Inside the native 4K resolution SXRD panel is a reflective silicon layer that provides better light control to reproduce black tones and shadows with total accuracy., in addition to improving the reflectance and durability of light.
  • Dynamic HDR enhancement: thanks to the processing power of the X1 Ultimate for projectors, the contrast combination with the new laser output control of both models is improved, which increases the brightness of bright HDR scenes and the darkness of darker ones. Object-based HDR remastering enables more powerful real-time image processing that analyzes objects in each frame and achieves HDR images for any content.
