Compact, effortlessly stylish design to flatter every home
World’s most compact native 4K HDR laser projector*
Blending effortlessly into today’s living spaces, the beautifully styled VPL-XW5000ES is the world’s most compact native 4K HDR laser projector*. We’ve designed the VPL-XW5000ES to be even smaller and lighter than its predecessors by developing the all-new native 4K SXRD panel and compact Wide Dynamic Range Optics. The projector is about 30% smaller in volume and about 35% lighter than the VPL-VW790ES, delivering the same high brightness.
*As of April 2022, according to research by Sony Corporation in the native 4K projectors market.
The smart projector that’s engineered to last
With the VPL-XW5000ES you’ll never have to worry about changing projector lamps. The ultra-pure laser light source requires virtually no maintenance, letting you enjoy perfectly clear 4K pictures at optimal brightness for up to 20,000 uninterrupted hours.
Smooth, fluid on-screen motion
Ideal for action movies and sports, 4K Motionflow™ inserts additional frames to reduce on-screen blur for smoother, clearer motion. Cinema purists can choose True Theatre mode to stay faithful to the original 24 fps frame rate.
Matches your fastest responses
Great for gamers, Input Lag Reduction dramatically cuts delays before images are displayed on screen. You’ll stay ahead of the competition with super-fast response times for even more thrilling gaming action. The VPL-XW5000ES supports 4K 60 Hz input signals with an input lag under 21 ms, and 2K 120 Hz input with an input lag under 13 ms.
Always see the full picture
Anamorphic lens compatibility with 4K signals means you can can use your legacy anamorphic lenses, even when you’re watching 4K content. V-stretch for 4K ensures your favourite formats are displayed correctly.
