'-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’s so incredibly lifelike, it’s like looking at the real thing. This is the same resolution defined by Digital Cinema Initiatives 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.

-Ultra-short throw distance for flexible installation
The VPL-VZ1000ES has been designed with flexible installation in mind. Place the projector right next to a wall and you’ll enjoy a beautiful 80" (diagonal) display; move the projector 8.3" away from the wall and this screen size increases to a huge 120". So whether it’s placed on the floor, mounted on the ceiling or used for rear projection, you can be sure that you’ll always see the big picture.

-2500 lumens for spectacular brightness
Savor the action with an incredible 2500 lumens brightness, for high contrast across the screen. A highly efficient Z-Phosphor laser light generates the brightness required for vibrant images across the whole screen.

-4K SXRD™: Our most advanced projection technology 
Our advanced SXRD™ (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) system features an ultra-fast response rate of 2.5 milliseconds for clear, blur-free images. The panels also minimize the space between the pixels—a feat not achieved by comparable projection technologies—allowing our projectors to deliver smoother images. Additionally, the decision to include three SXRD™ panels means this projector can display all primary colors simultaneously, and with light passing through each panel twice, this allows exceptionally deep blacks to be reproduced for a more powerful viewing experience.

-Reality Creation upscales your favorites
Upscale your existing Blu-ray Disc™ and DVD movies to near 4K quality. The super-resolution Reality Creation 4K upscaler analyzes every pixel in any direction, then employs a digital signal processing algorithm to map pixels against an ever-evolving picture patterning database, compiled from over 10 years of expertise, to enhance colors, contrast, and textures.

-High dynamic contrast for stunning realism
The VPL-VZ1000ES's SXRD™ panels and laser light source help the projector achieve a high dynamic contrast. This means that the full color spectrum—from deep, inky blacks through to vibrant reds, blues and greens—is replicated with fine detail and realism, making every scene spring to life for truly immersive cinematic experience. 

-HDR compatibility: every image comes to life
Combined with 4K native resolution and a wider color gamut, HDR video content delivers unprecedented detail, color and contrast, with a far wider range of brightness than other video formats. The result is a picture with lifelike realism, brilliant highlights, and fine detail. HDR content is available from selected streaming services and the upcoming 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray format.

-Action stays smooth with Motionflow™
Whatever you’re watching, you’ll enjoy a silk-smooth on screen look in fast-moving action sequences with Motionflow. This innovative technology creates and inserts extra frames between the original frames by first comparing key visual factors on successive frames then calculating the split second of missing action in the sequences. True Theater 24p mode mimics true movie projection for theater purists.

-Watch for longer with a Z-Phosphor laser light
Inside the VPL-VZ1000ES is an ultra-pure, reliable Z-Phosphor laser light source. You'll enjoy perfectly clear 4K pictures plus up to 20,000 hours of uninterrupted operation, with no lamp replacement and virtually zero maintenance.

-Fits any room
Neat and compact, this is a projector that’s ready for rooms of any size. Bring immersive 4K entertainment to places where projection may not previously have been possible.

-Colors come alive with TRILUMINOS™
Discover true-to-life colors and tones. The VPL-VZ1000ES 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.

-Built-in 3D transmitter synchronizes entertainment
Start watching 3D movies quicker. An industry-standard RF 3D transmitter synchronizes the optional glasses with your projector for a quick, easy set-up. Upscale 2D films to 3D and enjoy classic movies in a whole new dimension.

-Future-proofed support for the latest HDMI standards
The VPL-VZ1000ES can project native 4K content at up to 60 frames per second, for even smoother images with superior color and realism. Support for HDCP 2.2 lets you enjoy the latest 4K movies and TV shows.

-Quick start
Don’t keep your audience waiting for the show to begin. With quick start and laser light source technology, you’re ready to start projection right after switch-on.

-Select from nine picture calibration modes
Quickly 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. An advanced HSV manual color tuning tool gives you even more control.

-Flexible home installation
Installing this projector in your room is easy thanks to a short throw distance, compact body and simple ventilation. Fine tune the position of your projector with lens shift and zoom, to get just the right image placement.

Picture quality keeps getting better & better! The laser picture quality and detail is off the charts! It is like you are watching a 120" TV its that good. I bought my projector a month ago and the contrast gets better and better as it breaks in. The design is flawless and the 4K and 3D function is awesome as well. Sony is the true pioneer in projectors and I couldn't be any happier. For the aesthetics, The short throw projector fits in a cabinet 10" from the wall. This cabinet is built for this Sony but I will say the projector does throw some heat into the room. If you are looking for a superior projector than look no further, Sony is the one to go with!
