1080p High Definition – a new era of
viewing pleasure
The inferior resolution of Standard Definition and HD ready.
The VPL-VW200 and VPL-VW60 projectors allow you to fully appreciate the staggering difference 1080p HD technology makes to the
home theatre experience. Newly developed SXRD™ panels and 1080p HD combine to deliver an overwhelming viewing experience
on a screen that puts the largest flat panel television to shame.
1080p High Definition represents a quantum leap in picture quality. With three of Sony’s new 1920 x 1080 SXRD™ panels at the heart of the VW Series, a consistently superior
image is produced across the entire screen. As minuscule image details finally become distinct, films, sports broadcasts and concerts come to life as never before. At this level
of resolution, individual pixels remain entirely impercetible, allowing for the reproduction of colourful landscapes and fast-moving sequences with absolute supremacy. Thanks
to new Motionflow Dark Frame Insertion, the VPL-VW200 does away with blurry movement altogether. This ingenious high frame rate technology creates additional frames
for the smoothest motion possible. The result is the best picture quality ever seen in a home theatre environment with a screen size of up to an amazing 300" / 7,6m. Plus, the

New SXRD™ panels for amazingly cinematic
1080p HD resolution
The new Silicon X-tal Reflective Display (SXRD™) panel has been developed and refined exclusively by Sony to reproduce superb 1920 x 1080 High Definition output.
The result is a digitally projected image that stands every comparison with genuine 35mm movie film.
1080p High Definition
The unique combination of three separate panels of 1920 x 1080 resolution (one each for red, green and blue) means that SXRD™ can deliver over 6,2 million pixels, more
than twice as many as the 2,8 million pixels you get with other 720p HD ready projectors. Because each pixel is smaller, lines are cleaner and the detail and texture of fine
objects can be perfectly expressed. Your reward is breathtaking depth and clarity of such a high level, you will be able to count the whiskers on your favourite actor’s face.
The pristine image produced by
three new SXRD™ panels.

seen on projectors without SXRD™
technology.
Smoother cinema-quality films
By reducing the space between pixels, SXRD™ panels virtually eliminate the ‘screen door’ effect, the pixel grid which can spoil big-screen pictures on lesser projectors
(see left). This gives the projected image seamless film-quality consistency, even when the incoming High Definition video signal is less than 1080p HD. The VW200 also has

Unprecented levels of colour
Thanks to Sony’s new SXRD™ panel technology, VW Series projectors produce the impeccable colour uniformity that you can
only experience with a BRAVIA. The VPL-VW200 takes colour reproduction a step further with new x.v.Colour and Deep Colour™
technologies – for an even wider, richer range of colours.
Real Colour Processing (RCP) makes it possible to isolate
one colour for adjusting.
New SXRD™ panels – generating incredible colour consistency
VW Series projectors feature three separate SXRD™ panels – one for red, green and blue – which each process light paths of equal length to ensure uniform colour strength
across the entire screen. This eliminates the colour inconsistency often caused by conventional projectors, which create light paths of different lengths when forwarding the light
to the panel, making some colours stronger than others. What’s more, the annoying rainbow effect caused by colour-wheel technology is a thing of the past thanks to this
remarkable three panel system. With a BRAVIA SXRD™ projector, you will never have to suffer any irregularity of colour. For more information on SXRD™, please turn to page 6.
x.v.Colour – more lifelike colours and natural tones
x.v.Colour is based on the xvYCC international standard for video signals that defines a colour space nearly two times wider than the existing sRGB standard colour space. The
x.v.Colour palette more closely matches the full, natural range of hues and gradients perceived by the human eye, instead of substituting or approximating colours as lesser
projectors do. It is now possible to experience this more realistic colour by connecting the VW200 projector to an x.v.Colour source, such as an HD Handycam® camcorder by

Deep Colour™ – trillions of colours instead of mere millions
Deep Colour™ makes it possible for the VPL-VW200 to produce trillions of colours so you can enjoy groundbreaking vividness and accuracy of colour. Deep Colour™ eliminates
on-screen colour banding, ensuring smooth tonal transitions and subtle gradations between hues. It helps deliver increased contrast ratio, and can represent many times more

Style, vision and ingenuity
When only the finest will do and compromise is out of the question, the VW Series
brings pioneering technology and dynamic design to those who demand first class
performance in every aspect of their lives.
The VPL-VW60 BRAVIA home theatre projector won the
EISA Award for European Video Projector of the Year
2007-2008. The EISA jury said, “The VPL-VW60 features
are impressive, its price is unmissable.”
