Meet Sony’s VPL-VW295ES: The only true native 4K resolution projector under $5000 MSRP!
Also learn about Sony’s other new 4K projectors and more.
Sony, with the launch of our three new models last month, including the VW295ES, is now on our fifth generation of native 4K resolution projectors.
No one has the experience with 4K that Sony has. When it comes to under $25,000 MSRP native 4K projectors, consider that right now, there’s only one competitor and they just launched their first generation!
This is an Advertorial created jointly by Sony and Projector Reviews!
The VW295ES is Sony’s least expensive 4K projector yet it supports pretty much everything! HDR (both the HDR10, and HLG [broadcast] versions). And the VW295ES and all the other Sonys support BT.2020/P3 color space, the same superior color standard used in today’s better digital cineplexes.
You could describe the VPL-VW295ES as an entry level native 4K projector. That would be true. Other than being the least expensive 4K Sony, there’s almost nothing “entry level” about its performance and capabilities. Sporting 1,500 lumens, this Sony projector will put a bright image before your eyes, whether you place it in a dedicated home theater, or pair it with the proper screen and place it in your living room, media room, family room, or spare bedroom. The 2.1:1 lens (zoom, focus and lots of lens shift) are all motorized to offer you world class placement flexibility.
We would be remiss if we didn’t also tell you a little about the rest of our 4K line-up.
Moving up from the VW295ES with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price of $9,999 is the new VW695ES. This projector is superior to, and replaces, our just discontinued VW685ES, a $14,999 MSRP projector.
Overall, the VW295ES and VW695ES are very similar. Here’s how they differ: The VW695ES adds additional brightness, and a fast dynamic iris to dramatically improve “black level performance” on those very dark scenes. Another key addition is our Picture Position lens memories. Both projectors have the same motorized lens system, but if you are a movie fanatic first, and want to go “Cinemascope” type wide screen to match most movies, the 695ES lets you resize the image appropriately, at the touch of a button. With the lower budget 295ES you can also go wide screen by adjusting the motorized zoom and lens shift manually in about 30 seconds, using the remote.
