Resolution

Full Authentic 4K resolution, as it has been since 2011 when Sony was the first to launch 4K, this is no imitation 4K display.

Spectacular 10,000-lumen + DCI-P3 color gamut

A 100% DCI-P3 wide color gamut is achieved without sacrificing the high brightness of 10,000 lm, with a unique 3-channel laser light source. A high-intensity blue-laser activates the phosphor light source for wide gamut white light, while additional balanced red and blue laser light sources negate the need for a light-sapping color filter. The result is spectacular brightness and projected images with stunning realism even in well-lit spaces.

Native 4K resolution for lifelike pictures

With more than four times the resolution of Full HD, native 4K offers 8.8 million pixels (4096 x 2160) for a picture that is incredibly lifelike, which is why it is the resolution defined by the DCI (Digital Cinema Initiative) for theater distribution. See corner-to-corner clarity and watch movies from much closer than you would in Full HD.

Sony X1 Ultimate for projector

X1™ Ultimate for projector is an innovative technology that uses advanced algorithms to cut noise and boost detail with high-precision frame analysis.

Maximum HDR colour enhanced

See increased levels of authenticity, with brighter tones even brighter plus incredible shadow detail never seen before. The X1 for projector powers Sony’s advanced HDR enhancer to new levels of visual immersion.

 

Native 4K SXRD panel

The advanced Silicon X-tal Reflective Display (SXRD) panel technology featured in our digital theater projectors 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.

Watch bright images for longer with a Z-Phosphor laser light

The VPL-GTZ380 uses an ultra-pure and reliable Z-Phosphor laser light source. This Sony-developed light source offers bright images for up to 20,000 hours of uninterrupted operation-no lamp replacement and virtually zero maintenance.

Dual contrast control

In addition to the dynamically-controlled laser light output, an Advanced Iris is also incorporated. Both the iris control and laser can be adjusted independently and dynamically, to optimize light output for both dark and bright well-lit scenes. The result is deeper blacks than ever, as well as bright, vibrant colors where needed. The infinite dynamic contrast makes every scene spring to life with detail and realism.

Corner-to-corner sharpness with the ARC-F lens

For pristine image quality across the entire screen, the VPL-GTZ380ES features an All-Range Crisp Focus (ARC-F) lens. This large-aperture lens adopts an all-glass design for its 18 elements, including six extra low-dispersion (ELD) elements. This ensures optimal convergence of the red, green, and blue primaries even at the extreme edges of the image for a clear and vivid image wherever you look.

Digital Focus Optimizer

Optimum focus is achieved, not only optically, but also digitally, by the Digital Focus Optimizer. It compensates in advance from the possible optical degradation of the lens, then outputs the optimum corrected images, so that even the focus in the corners is better than ever.

See deeper blacks with 4K SXRD panels

The latest SXRD panels deliver even better contrast, as well as native 4K resolution. With SXRD projection, you’ll see rich, inky blacks, clear cinematic motion, and smooth images. Improvements to the reflective silicon layer now mean even better light control, for precisely delivered shadows and blacks.

Super-resolution Reality Creation for 4K Contents

Sony’s exclusive Reality Creation technology analyzes images right down to the pixel level. It then employs pattern-matching algorithms developed over years of movie production to enhance details even without increasing digital picture noise. It also upscales existing Full HD Blu-ray Disc and DVD movies to near 4K quality.

Motorized zoom lens and wide lens shift

Installing this projector in your room is easy with a 2.06x motorized zoom with a wide lens shift range. Adjust the position of the projector up to 80%vertically and 31% horizontal to get just the right angle for your movies without creating image distortion or resolution loss.

4K Motionflow

The powerful video processor in the VPL-GTZ380 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 Theater mode to retain the original 24fps.

Colors come alive with TRILUMINOS

Discover true-to-life colors and tones. The VPL-GTZ380 incorporates TRILUMINOS color, reproducing more tones and textures than a standard projector system. 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 skin tones more faithfully reproduced.
