The super-resolution Reality Creation
Sony’s exclusive Reality Creation technology analyzes images right down to the pixel level. It then employs
pattern-matching algorithms developed over years of movie production to enhance crispness even without increasing
digital picture noise. It also upscales existing full HD Blu-ray DiscTM and DVD movies to near 4K quality.

and textures than a standard projector system. Hard-to-reproduce crimson reds, aqua blues, and emerald greens
are displayed beautifully, so landscapes and seascapes look more vivid. Faces look better, too, with skin tons more
faithfully reproduced.

Advanced MotionflowTM
Without Motionflow
Whatever you’re watching, you’ll enjoy a silky smooth
on-screen look in fast-moving action sequences with
Motionflow. This innovative technology creates and
inserts extra frames between the original frames, first
comparing key visual factors on successive frames,
then calculating the split second of missing action in
the sequences. True Cinema 24p mode mimics true
movie projection for cinema purists.

Compact and Functional Design
Built-in Auto Calibration
Achieving such compact size, provides great
flexibility for a variety of installation situations.
After extended periods, colour can be automatically
calibrated to the original factory condition.
There’s no need for extra calibration equipment
or cameras; a built-in colour sensor stores all the
necessary information.
Wider Zoom and Shift Lens
The projector offers a powered lens for zoom, shift
and focus operations to provide maximum flexibility
for home installations, including high ceiling mounting.
* The VPL-VW550ES/360ES.
Front-facing Fan
Because the fan is positioned at the front, you don’t
need to leave a large gap between the back of the
projector and the wall for air intake not inhale exhaust
when you install. This helps maximize the throw
distance for bigger projected images.
Picture Position Memory Matches
Movie Aspect Ratio
Color difference
from initial conditions
The projector has a set of memory registers to store
the position of the lens (focus, zoom, shift).
Users can match a movie’s aspect ratio, including
1.78:1 and 2.35:1, and store these settings in the
projector for easy recall.
