It is 3D compatible and will connect to many RF-based 3D glasses. As an added convenience, the projector includes a remote control.Native DCI 4K Resolution for Lifelike Images

With over four times the resolution of Full HD, native DCI 4K offers 8.8 million pixels (4096 x 2160) for a more lifelike image. See corner-to-corner with clarity and watch movies from closer than you would in Full HD.

HDR10 and HLG Compatibility

HDR (high dynamic range) is designed to offer an expanded brightness range to deliver more realistic, high-contrast images and vibrant colors.

Motorized Zoom Lens and Wide Lens Shift

Finding the right installation spot for this projector in your theater room is easy with a 2.06x motorized zoom. Adjust the position of the projector up to 85% vertically and 31% horizontally to get the right angle for your movies.

1500 Lumens for High Brightness

Savor the action with enhanced brightness for high contrast across the screen. A 225W lamp generates the 1500 lumens of white and color brightness required to project images up to 300 diagonally.

Reality Creation Upscales Your Favorites

Upscale your existing Blu-ray and DVD movies to near-4K quality. The Reality Creation 4K upscaler analyzes every pixel, then employs a digital-signal-processing algorithm to map pixels against a picture patterning database to enhance colors, contrast, and textures.

See Deeper Blacks with DCI 4K SXRD Panels

SXRD (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) panels are designed to deliver enhanced contrast for deeper black levels, clear motion, and smooth images.

Vibrant Colors with TRILUMINOS

The VPL-VW385ES incorporates TRILUMINOS color to help reproduce crimson reds, aqua blues, and emerald greens, helping landscapes and seascapes look more vivid and skin tones seem more faithfully reproduced.

200,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio for Enhanced Realism

With Sonys Advanced Iris3 technology, the light output can be adjusted frame-by-frame, allowing the projector to achieve a 200,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, helping dark scenes reveal their shadowy details without compromising the brightness for enhanced images.

Action Stays Smooth with Motionflow

Whatever youre watching, youll enjoy a smooth on-screen look in fast-moving action sequences with Motionflow. This 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. Additionally, True Theater 24p mode mimics true-movie projection for cinema purists.

Watch for Longer with a 225W Ultra-High-Pressure Lamp

Enjoy up to 6000 hours of viewing time (in low mode) from a mercury lamp. This means fewer lamp swaps, simpler maintenance, and lower running costs.

Built-In 3D Transmitter

An RF 3D transmitter synchronizes optional glasses with the projector so you can watch 3D movies. Upscale 2D films to 3D and enjoy classic movies in a whole new dimension.

HDCP 2.2 Support

The VPL-VW385ES can project native 4K content at up to 60 fps thanks to HDCP 2.2 compatibility, allowing you to enjoy 4K video from a range of compatible sources.

Select from Nine Picture Calibration Modes

Calibrate the picture to what youre watching or playing. Select from nine picture-calibration modes, including two theater film modes, cinema digital, reference, TV, photo, game, bright cinema, and bright TV. A Hue Saturation Value manual color-tuning tool gives you even more control.

Picture Position Memory Stores Your Settings

Store lens, zoom, and shift settings for up to five screen formats for easy recall. Picture Position Memory remembers key settings so you can quickly watch movies in the correct format for the screen. Match aspect ratios, including 16:9 and Cinemascope, and store these settings in the projector.

  • Increible Picture and Colors
    Reviewed by Fran385 - July 11, 2018

    I have this projector and I had pixel shifting to 4K. There is not compararían with this projector. Pixel shifting is way way behind the technology of the Sony VPL385es from resolution colors , pre set calibrations (amazing) and the menu settings are way ahead. I have forgotten they low noise it has too. Do not doubt about this projector. Go for it.
