The VPL-VW5000ES combines 4K SXRD display technology with a highly efficient
laser light source. This unique combination delivers exceptionally bright pictures
with excellent colour accuracy and stability, high efficiency and significantly greater
durability. Up to 20,000 hours of virtually maintenance-free operation can be
delivered without the need for a lamp exchange. This translates to substantial
savings in time and money, reducing the costs normally associated with bulb
The latest 4K/60p HDMI
standard: 60 frames
per second
The VPL-VW5000ES can show up
to 60 frames per second in 4K (up
to 4K 60p YCbCr 4:4:4 / 8bit 4K
60p YCbCr 4:2:2 / 12bit), the new
4K industry standard and much
higher than the earlier 24p. The
result is a smoother image with
superior colour and realism. Plus,
they’re HDCP 2.2 compatible,
ready for premium 4K content
Front-facing fan
Because the fan is positioned at
the front, you don’t need to worry
about wall space and room for air
inhale/exhaust when you install.
This helps maximise the throw

Motionflow for smoother content
Our enhanced Motionflow technology: ‘Combination’ mode uses our ‘Film

Wider zoom and shift lens
Industry standard RF 3D
A 2.06 motorised zoom lens and
wide lens shift range of up to 85%
vertical and 31% horizontal gives
greater installation flexibility –
even when the ceiling is very high.
A built-in RF transmitter synchronises
with any RF 3D glasses for wider
coverage, greater stability, and there’s
no need for an external transmitter.
