(516) 496-1000



With a dynamic contrast ratio of 200,000:1 and Advanced Iris, every scene springs to life with finer detail, realism and deep blacks.


Enjoy DCI 4K images in vibrant color with the Sony VPL-VW385ES HDR DCI 4K SXRD Home Theater Projector. Its three SXRD chips combine with HDR compatibility to deliver enhanced color accuracy, while its 1500 lumens of brightness help ensure that your images are clear even with some ambient light. This projector has a 2.06x powered zoom, allowing you to place it far from the screen without losing focus.

The VPL-VW385ES has two HDMI inputs for connecting your digital HD devices, such as your HD cable/satellite box or Blu-ray player. It is 3D compatible and will connect to many RF-based 3D glasses. As an added convenience, the projector includes a remote control.

 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.HDR (high dynamic range) is designed to offer an expanded brightness range to deliver more realistic, high-contrast images and vibrant colors. 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.  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.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. 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. SXRD (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) panels are designed to deliver enhanced contrast for deeper black levels, clear motion, and smooth images. With Sony's 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 StaysSmooth with MotionflowWhatever you're watching, you'll 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. 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. 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. 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. Calibrate the picture to what you're 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.
