The Sony VPL-VW570ES is the replacement to the popular VPL-VW550ES. The mid range offering VPL-VW570ES produces true 4K resolution images with native 4K (4096 x 2160) SXRD panels – that’s over four times the quality of Full HD. Native 4K is the same resolution defined by Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCi) for cinema distribution, with pixels one quarter the size of those used by traditional Full HD 1080p projectors. See corner-to-corner clarity and watch movies from much closer than you would in Full HD.
Installing the VPL-VW570ES in your living room or dedicated home cinema room is easy with a 2.06 motorised zoom with a wide lens shift range. Adjust the position of the projected image up to 85% vertically and 31% horizontally for precise placement.
Compatible with HDR10 and HLG formats, the VPL-VW570ES is now also HDMI 18 Gbps compatible so it will support 4K HDR content at 60fps with 4:4:4 colour sampling at 8Bit colour depth or 4:2:2 with 12Bit colour depth. In addition to HDR support, the VW570ES also has picture position memory to store your settings for various aspect ratios, great if you have a combination of 16:9 and cinemascope content formats. At the press of a button the VW570ES will adjust the image to suit the stored aspect ratio. Up to 5 presets are available to store your settings.
In a recent review over at insideci, they had the following conclusion in summing up the VPL-VW570ES.."The VPL-VW570ES is a massively impressive native 4k projector. If you’re specifying a home theatre, it ticks most every box. Images are detailed and colour rich, contrast is exceptional. This model casts gloriously filmic images.It's difficult to fault the quality of Sony’s picture processing. Every premium cinema deserves one."

Native 4K SXRD panel
Featured in Sony's digital cinema projectors, advanced SXRD (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) panel technology delivers native 4K (4096 x 2160) resolution images, with more than four times the detail of Full HD. Fine details are wonderfully clear and natural, without jagged edges or visible pixels.
See richer, deeper blacks
Latest SXRD 4K panels deliver even better contrast, as well as native 4K resolution. SXRD projection offers rich, inky blacks, as well as clear cinematic motion and image smoothness. Improvements to the panel's reflective silicon layer now mean even better light control, for precisely reproduced shadows and blacks.
350,000:1 dynamic contrast for stunning realism
A dynamic contrast of 350,000:1 makes every scene spring to life with fine detail and realism. The powerful video processor is combined with lens iris control to achieve both deep, inky blacks and vibrant colour.
Super-resolution Reality Creation
Exclusive Reality Creation technology analyses images right down to the pixel level. It uses powerful pattern-matching algorithms developed over years of movie production to enhance image crispness without increasing digital picture noise. It also upscales existing full HD Blu-ray Disc and DVD movies to near 4K quality.
Colours come alive with TRILUMINOS
Discover true-to life colours and tones. The VPL-VW570ES 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.
HDR compatibility: every image comes to life
Get the most from today's UHD Blu-ray and streaming services with High Dynamic Range. HDR video offers an expanded brightness range that delivers more realistic, high-contrast images and brilliant colours. Compatible with both HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) formats. Sony’s home cinema projectors reproduce colour and contrast that's faithful to the creator's intention.
HDMI 18 Gbps compatibility
With an increase in 4K HDR 60P content, the VPL-VW570ES is now HDMI 18 Gbps compatible for smoother expressions of gradations.
The powerful video processor in the VPL-VW570ES offers Motionflow for smooth and clear motion even when viewing 4K content. Motionflow adds frames to reduce blur, while maintaining brightness, making it ideal for fast-moving sports content. Cinema purists can choose True Theatre mode to retain the original 24fps.
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 ideal format. Match aspect ratios, including 16:9 and Cinemascope, and store these settings in the projector.

Quickly set the picture to what you’re watching or playing. Select from nine calibrated picture modes, including two theatre film modes, cinema digital, reference, TV, photo, game, bright cinema, and bright TV. An advanced HSV (Hue Saturation Value) colour tuning tool gives you even more control.
