Seeing is believing: breathtaking 4K clarity without compromise
Bring the immersive excitement of true 4K cinematic images into every living space. Available also in a contemporary premium white finish, the VPL-VW550ES Home Cinema projector makes a stylish addition to any interior.
Advanced SXRD panel technology delivers incredible 4K images with four times the resolution of Full HD. You'll experience rich colours, impressive 1800 lumens brightness and huge 350,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio - for vibrant, detail-packed pictures with native 4K resolution that always look clear and sharp, even in daylit living rooms.
You're future-proofed with compatibility for the latest 4K standards, as well as compatibility with HDR (High Dynamic Range) - so you'll get the very best out of today's content, and tomorrow's. Colour can be easily calibrated to the original factory condition without fuss. The compact VPL-VW550ES fits neatly into any home theatre or living room, with quiet fan noise that won't disturb the show, wide zoom/lens shift range and a front-facing exhaust port for extra installation flexibility. The projector's long-lasting lamp is rated for an extra-generous 6,000 hours* operation (in Low Mode), for fewer interruptions and reduced maintenance costs.
The projector's built-in RF transmitter synchronises with any RF 3D glasses for wider coverage and greater stability, so there's no need for an external transmitter.

||What HiFi 5 Stars
"The VW550ES fills our 96in screen with a sharpness and percipience." "The picture basks in the texture and fine detail." "Muggy forests look natural, animal coats don't look single-toned, and shades of green reveal themselves as the camera picks out moss clinging to trees." "Reliable solidity and stunning richness." "Wide range and subtlety, from skin tones to snake skin."
