Sony VPL-VW5000ES Whitepaper: Full Version

Check out Sony’s in-depth white paper that takes a deep dive into the VPL-VW5000ES projector’s SXRD microdisplay technology. It’s available to download now and is full of detailed info about SXRD (Silicon X-tal [crystal] Reflective Display).

This white paper covers a wide variety of SXRD related topics including inter-pixel gaps and how they relate to screen door effect, brightness, and pixel density. It discusses how the LCD material used in SXRD achieves impressively low black levels and high contrast, which are crucial keys to achieving great picture quality.

Sony’s white paper goes on to discuss the value of true 4K resolution and how it relates to seating distance, as well as the advantages of using three imaging chips instead of one.

Of course, HDR gets the in-depth treatment here. Inside the white paper you’ll read about how HDR comes closer to matching what you see with your own eyes, and you’ll find a summary of the current state of the consumer HDR ecosystem including streaming, Ultra HD Blu-ray, and gaming.

And that’s not all! The VPL-VW5000ES white paper gets into the nitty gritty about the Z-phosphor light source, which is key to achieving the projector’s 5000 lumen peak brightness and 20,000-hour life span. Other topics covered include: Reality Creation 4K upscaling, 4K Motionflow frame interpolation for sharper motion detail, low-latency mode for gaming, built-in auto calibration, panel alignment, and others.
