Expect very limited stock of Japanese manufactured projectors until late 2016 / Early 2017 (Nov-Jan); Malaysian made available.
More than 4x the resolution of Full HD
The VPL-VW1100ES projector brings the fully immersive experience of the cinema into your home. See exceptional detail with 4K resolution, a dynamic contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 and 2,000 lumens brightness.
2D & 3D films upscaled to 4K
While more and more 4K material is becoming available, our advanced Reality Creation technology upscales your 2D and 3D movies for a truly cinematic 4K experience.
Professional cinema technology
Advanced SXRD panels and Iris 3 technology producean ultra-smooth, native 4K picture, with no compromises.
4K native resolution: 4x the quality of Full HD
There’s no compromise, the VPL-VW1100ES provides 4096 x 2160 resolution. We used our professional cinema expertise to develop 4K SXRD panels and produce a 4K native picture with no artificial pixel enhancement.
Dynamic contrast for incredible detail
Our 4K SXRD panels and Iris3 technology work together to produce an incredible contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1. Deep blacks plus a flatter pixel surface help to create astonishingly detailed images.
Triluminos Display technology
The VPL-VW1100ES's optical engine and SXRD panels incorporate our Triluminos Display technology to produce a much broader colour range, reproducing more tones and textures than a standard projector system. The result is greater purity, depth and realism.
2,000 lumens brightness
At 2,000 ANSI lumens, the VPL-VW1100ES incorporates a high performance lamp for the optimum viewing experience at home.
Reality Creation: upscales your movies to 4K
As well as native 4K material, you can see your current Full HD Blu-ray™ or DVD movie collection upscaled for a 4K experience. Reality Creation is a Super Resolution technology that radically enhances Full HD content, even upscaling 3D movies for 4K.
Compatible with ‘Mastered in 4K’ Blu-ray™ discs
Drawing on the same technology used to downscale 4K material for Full HD, the VPL-VW1100ES gives you a near native 4K experience with discs ‘Mastered in 4K’. It’s as close as you can get to the 4K-pixel resolution and expanded colour range of the original.
For fast-moving scenes, our Motionflow technology means you’ll see every detail with minimal blur. The VPL-VW1100ES displays twice as many images and transitions per second than Full HD for a crisp, clear, sharp picture, no matter how fast the action.
Meets new 4K standard of 60 frames per second
The VPL-VW1100ES displays up to 60p, the new industry standard for 4K. It’s significantly higher than the previous 24p, for a smoother viewing experience with greater colour and realism.
Wider range of colour
The VPL-VW1100ES offers a wider than normal colour space, allowing it to show a greater range of colours than Adobe RGB or specified by the professional DCI standard (Digital Cinema Initiatives).
Zoom lens and wider lens shift
A 2.1 motorised zoom lens and wide lens shift range of 80% vertical and 31% horizontal gives greater installation flexibility – even when the ceiling is very high.
Suitable for home automation
The VPL-VW1100ES is compatible with many home automation systems. It has an RS232 interface, RJ45 control, and IR-IN terminal.
Picture Position Memory
This feature remembers the position of the zoom lens. You can match it to a movie’s aspect ratio (including 16:9 and Cinemascope) and store the settings for a future viewing.
Precise panel alignment
With electronic panel alignment, red and blue elements in every pixel are correctly positioned. For optimum clarity, adjustments can be made by as little as 0.1 pixels.
The latest noise reduction technology ensures that projector sound is kept to a minimum – only 23db.
Make fine gamma adjustments
For greater detail, colour and tonal accuracy, you can make fine gamma adjustments (levels 1 to 6) with Image Director3 software. Download it online, plug in your PC via the RS232C terminal and choose Fine or Course settings thanks to a new zooming function.
