Specifications

High brightness

With an impressive 1,500 lumens brightness, 4K images are clear with bright highlights and rich, deep blacks — even in well-lit rooms.

Reality Creation upscales your favorites.2

Upscale your existing Blu-ray Disc™ and DVD movies to near 4K quality.3 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.

Action stays smooth and sharp with MotionFlow™

Whatever you’re watching, you’ll enjoy a silk-smooth and razor-sharp 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 Cinema 24p mode mimics true movie projection for cinema purists.

Colors come alive with TRILUMINOS™ Display

Discover true-to-life colors and tones. The VPL-VW385ES incorporates TRILUMINOS™ Display 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.

Enjoy all types of content in 4K HDR

4K HDR 60p 10bit (for HDR10/HLG) compatible so you can enjoy gaming and other high frame rate content in 4K HDR.

Support for latest standards

The VPL-VW385ES can project content at up to 60 frames per second (fps) in 4K for even smoother images with superior color and realism. Both HDMI inputs support HDCP 2.2 so you can enjoy more of the latest 4K content services.4

Watch for longer with a 225 W high-pressure lamp

Enjoy up to 6000 hours of watch time (in low mode) from a long-lasting mercury lamp. This means fewer lamp swaps, simpler maintenance, and lower running costs.

Flexible home installation with wide zoom and shift lens

The powered zoom lens with a 2.1x zoom ratio and wide lens shift range gives greater installation flexibility in any room size, even with a high ceiling.

Built-in 3D transmitter synchronizes entertainment3

A built-in 3D transmitter synchronizes the optional glasses with the projector, so you can start watching 3D movies quicker.3 Upscale 2D films to 3D and enjoy classic movies in a whole new dimension, or watch anamorphic images and 3D films simultaneously without changing the lens. High-emission power gives you a strong signal anywhere in the room.
