The VPL-VW90ES is a Full HD 3D projector designed to satisfy serious home cinema enthusiasts, with an outstanding 3D picture and a wide range of innovative Sony technologies.
Built around Sony’s Cinema-Quality SXRD panel technology, the VPL-VW90ES delivers exactly what 3D connoisseurs demand: a vibrant, bright 3D picture delivered to screens as big as 150”.
The system uses frame-sequential projection via IR LED-switching glasses, and with a 240Hz refresh rate, adjustable 3D settings and a true 80,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio, the VPL-VW90ES delivers an immersive, natural home 3D experience.
2D performance isn’t compromised either, and 2D sources can be converted to 3D; so with an ever increasing number of Blu-Ray 3D movie titles and 3D games for Playstation 3, there’s no shortage of 3D content.
Sony leads the world in 3D Digital Cinema Projection, and now its SXRD panel technology has been adapted for use in home projectors for a true 3D home cinema experience.

Sony. The clear choice for 3D home cinema.
Full HD 1080p 3D Home Cinema projection system
A true 3D 1080p cinema projection system for a superb 3D cinematic experience.
Sony’s SXRD Panel technology
The VPL-VW90ES uses Sony’s unique SXRD 3 panel display system for smooth, dot-free display, vivid colours and massive true dynamic contrast ratio (80,000:1). Three separate red, blue and green panels combine to give a virtuoso colour performance, with exceptional detail.
Full HD resolution in 3D mode
Sequential Frame delivery means that each frame, for each eye, is shown using the full HD resolution of the projector, so there is no loss of resolution in 3D projection mode.
Flexible 3D setting mode
You can adjust the 3D glasses shutter speed and brightness level. Also adjustable on the VPL-VW90ES is its 3D depth.
240Hz Panel Drive
This projector features SXRD panels that are refreshed at the very high rate of 240Hz, resulting in very low cross-talk from the frame-sequential 3D system. This leads to much more realistic and comfortable viewing.
2D to 3D conversion
The VPL-VW90ES uses Sony’s advanced real-time technique for converting 2D source material; Blu Ray / DVD / HD Broadcast / Digital Still Picture into realistic pseudo-3D. This extremely effective process vastly increases the amount of material that can be viewed in 3D mode
Advanced Iris3 control
This is an automatic iris control feature that enhances the contrast. It maximises black levels without diminishing peak brightness.
Motionflow results in smoother motion in projected images. It has two modes: one creates “intermediate” frames to reduce jerkiness, and the other inserts a dark frame instead of repeating frames where frame-rate conversion is taking place. This creates smoother-looking motion, and a more cinema-like appearance.
True 24p mode
True 24p mode displays material at a genuine 24 frames per second for an authentic, film-like appearance. Watch films exactly as the creators intended.
Anamorphic Zoom mode
With this feature, you can see films in their original cinematic aspect ratio (2.35:1 for example) in full resolution, without cropping or “letterbox” black bands above and below the picture. This does require a third-party a third-party lens adaptor.
Electronically Adjustable Lens Shift
Electronically adjust the projector’s lens shift, making it easier to install into a wide variety of locations.
Multiple Cinema Modes
Users can choose from 3 Cinema Modes to match the output of the projector with the characteristics of the projected material. Use this mode in conjunction with Gamma correction adjustments for an even higher degree of control.
Wide range of Gamma correction
A total of 11 Gamma settings provide flexibility to match the brightness curve of the projected image to the image content.
White and Black Level adjustment
Directly adjust white and black levels from the menu
10-bit colour delivery
With 10-bit colour, the VPL-VW90ES delivers smoother gradations between shades of the same colour, without the contours that are visible on other displays.
Sony Digital Video Processing System
A set of Sony-developed technologies that applies eight separate processes to video to increase sharpness and colour clarity.
Automatic motorised lens protector
The VPL-VW90ES is equipped with an automatic motorised lens protector that opens when the projector is powered on, and closes when it is powered off. This keeps the dust of the lens, without users having to remember to fit a lens cap.
Wide range of inputs
The VPL-VW90ES features a wide range of inputs for connection to a variety of sources. Inputs include HDMI 1.4 (2) VGA, Component, S-Video and Composite.
Compatibility with BRAVIA Sync (HDMI CEC)
Control not only the projector but also BRAVIA sync compatible equipment with the supplied remote control.
Extremely low fan noise (as low as 20dB)
A highly effective cooling system means that fan noise is kept to an absolute minimum. With an ultra-quiet fan, users can watch even the quietest parts of movies with no audible distractions from the projector.
Sony bring a new 3D Projector at IFA
Sony is introducing at IFA 2010 a new 3D Video projector, the VPL-VW90ES designed for a home usage.
At the IFA conference in Berlin, Sony Professional today announced its first 3D home projector, the VPL-VW90ES, which gives movie fans the opportunity to enjoy an unrivalled 3D cinematic experience in the comfort of their own home. Based on the active glasses technology used in Sony’s 3D TV range, the VPL-VW90ES has been designed to deliver an optimal 3D experience that feels natural on the eyes. To achieve the excellent image quality required in a home theatre environment, including true depth of colour and brightness, the VW90ES is equipped with Sony’s Advanced Iris 3 technology. This enables a dynamic contrast ratio of 150,000:1.
The VPL-VW90ES, an SXRD based projector, is obviously Full HD capable comes with an impressive 150,000:1 contrast ratio, use Sony’s active glasses technology (for 3D) as well as featuring an incredibly low fan noise of just 22db0, and will be put on sales later this year around November.
With the ability to project 3D in Full HD 1080p, the VPL-VW90ES features an upgraded SXRD 240Hz Panel which minimizes image distortion or “crosstalk.” The projector is also capable of taking 2D video and simulating 3D images, bringing new life to classic movies from the past and allowing a wide variety of video content to be enjoyed.
“The launch of our first 3D home projector marks the latest step in Sony realising its 3D World vision,” said Tak Nakane, product manager at Sony Professional. “From capturing images in 3D, through to the production and delivery stages, Sony is uniquely placed to deliver an incredible 3D viewer experience both at home and in the cinema. The projector also opens up another dimension for gamers too. People will be able to play a rapidly increasing number of 3D titles such as Gran Turismo 5, and Wip3out in crystal clear high definition, something we believe is going to appeal hugely to the gaming community.”
Key to the VPL-VW90ES is customisation. The projector is simple to setup and ideally suited to meet a wide range of installation configurations. Customers can personalise the projector depending on the content they are showing and the size of the room they are in, whether it be a small living room or large home theatre. The projector is quiet too, thanks to its incredibly low fan noise of just 22db.
