The Sony VPL-VW290ES is a huge step-up compared with the pixel-shifting 4K projectors we’ve seen. Watching Deadpool on 4K Blu-ray, every frame looks streets ahead of anything we’ve tested below this price point. Projectors don’t generally rival TVs for a strong, punchy HDR image, but there’s a gloss and a shine to the picture that represents a worthy improvement over the previous model


Stepping down to Full HD with 22 Jump Street on Blu-ray, we’re astonished at how well this projector can upscale. Playing the scene in Deputy Chief Hardy’s office, the disdainful-looking Nick Offerman is rendered in almost flawless fashion.


Experience the beauty of true 4K HDR images at home

Brings entertainment to life with 4K HDR picture quality in any living space. The VPL-VW290ES lets you take full advantage of the latest content with impressive sharpness and vivid colour, whether you’re watching sports, enjoying movies, or playing games.


X1 for projector

Sony has taken their acclaimed and industry leading BRAVIA TV Video processor and optimised if for this new projector. The X1 video processor is truly astonishing and is at the heart of the 290ES's performance.


The X1 processor combines innovative technologies for high-precision frame analysis, with features like Dynamic HDR Enhancer and Super Resolution for high-quality images.


Colours come alive with TRILUMINOS™

Discover true-to life colours and tones. The VPLVW290ES incorporates TRILUMINOS colour, reproducing more tones and textures than standard projectors. 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 faithfully reproduced skin tones.


Dynamic HDR Enhancer

Sony's Dynamic HDR Enhancer processes HDR content frame by frame to deliver stunning contrast. It further enhances contrast in combination with iris, which makes bright scenes brighter and dark scenes darker, for the ultimate HDR experience.


SXRD for uncompromising picture quality

Sony's advanced SXRD (Silicon X-Tal Reflective Display) panel technology offers rich, inky blacks and clear cinematic motion and image smoothness, with Sony's proprietary implementation of Liquid crystal on silicon technology. High heat and light resistance also ensures spectacularly high and stable brightness.


Super Resolution Reality Creation

The VPL-VW290ES analyses every pixel of every image and then employs pattern-matching algorithms developed over years of movie production to enhance crispness without increasing digital picture noise.


4K Motionflow™

Our Motionflow technology adds frames to reduce blur while maintaining brightness, creating smooth and clear motion even in 4K – ideal for sport
