”Sony brings its exceptional native-4K class to a lower price point.”
– ‘What Hi-Fi’ – 5 Star review.

HDR for the most vivid picture quality

Get the most from today's UHD Blu-ray and streaming services with High Dynamic Range. HDR video offers an expanded brightness range that delivers more realistic, high-contrast images and brilliant colours. Compatible with both HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) formats. Sony’s home cinema projectors reproduce colour and contrast that's true to the director’s creation.

UHD 4K resolution for the ultimate detail
Thanks to their massive experience in all aspects of entertainment, Sony are now able to bring the detail of 4K Ultra HD resolution to the home cinema. Simply put, projecting in this resolution gives detail and realism that's impossible to achieve with conventional Full HD resolution. UHD 4K resolution is four times greater than the more conventional 1920 x 1080 Full HD projectors and it's a difference you can easily see on a large projection screen.

Super Resolution 4k Upscaling
Watching a 4K signal from a source such as UHD Blu-ray, Netflix or Amazon Prime is awesome but the VPL-VW260 still excels with other resolutions, too. With Super Resolution 4K upscaling built-in, you get much of the benefit of 4K resolution with your existing Blu-ray disc library. Just leave it to the Sony to upscale the image and maximise the picture quality.

Motionflow makes it smooth
Whatever you're watching, you'll enjoy a liquid smoothness during fast-moving action scenes with Motionflow. This innovative technology creates and inserts extra frames between the original frames, first comparing key visual factors on successive frames, then calculating each split-second of missing action.

HDMI HDCP 2.2
The Sony VPLVW260 features an HDMI socket that is compatible to get the best from your UHD source - up to 4K 60p YCbCr 4:2:0 / 8-bit and HDCP 2.2. What this means is that you'll be able to use the projector with UHD 4K video sources such as UHD Blu-ray and set-top boxes.

SXRD panels for vivid picture quality
Sony uses advanced SXRD (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) panels with an incredibly rapid response rate of just 2.5 milliseconds. This gives the VPLVW260 smooth, fluid motion that's faster and more stable than typical LCD TVs. Another advantage over TVs is the increased panel resolution of 4096 x 2160. This ensures that films can be viewed in panoramic formats, such as CinemaScope and American Vista with much less of the picture taken up by black bars.

Super high contrast and brightness
A further benefit of the SXRD panel against LCD is an improved contrast ratio. By using a superior alignment layer, less light is scattered giving greater levels of black and, hence, a better contrast ratio. With a high contrast ratio, this Sony effortlessly produces inky blacks for exceptional depth of image. Ideally, as with all projectors, the Sony needs a dark room to give its best. However, thanks to the high brightness level of 1500 lumen, it will still perform well under daytime lighting conditions; making this a flexible source of entertainment for all.

Get the clarity and HDR detail of the best TVs, on the big screen, with the Sony VPL-VW260. Movie nights will never be the same again!

Built to the highest standards, the Sony UBPX1000ES offers the finest sound and vision.

ES quality construction

Made to the highest standards, the Sony UBP-X1000ES lives up to the highest Sony ES standards. The rigid frame-and-beam chassis is designed for the lowest levels of vibration. A honeycombed top panel and offset, insulated feet provide further vibration resistance. Audio and video circuitry is isolated by electrical shielding. By minimising vibration and maximising isolation, the Sony offers the most detailed sound quality and sharpest picture.

UHD Blu-ray - the ultimate picture quality
If you've got a 4K UHD TV with HDR, then why not make the most of it with this stunning UHD Blu-ray player. At last, the resolution from films on Blu-ray now matches the UHD resolution of your TV - maximising the potential of every pixel to give super-crisp detail and realism. With support for HDR10, the UBPX1000ES provides the finest picture quality.

HDR plus HDR to SDR convertor
HDR (High Dynamic Range) offers superior contrast with crisp detail visible within the brightest or darkest colours. HDR makes pictures more natural than ever. If your current TV isn't compatible with HDR, the Sony features an HDR to SDR convertor. Sony's unique technology lets you playback HDR-encoded discs on a regular 4K UHD TV, offering the highest picture quality possible.

Taking streaming to the next level with 4K UHD compatibility
As well as 4K UHD Blu-ray discs, you can also take advantage of the Sony's HEVC 4K video streaming services. Available via Netflix, Amazon and YouTube, 4K streaming takes streaming to another level of clarity and striking image quality.

High-Resolution Audio compatible
Whether you choose to play from disc, USB or stream via a DLNA compatible network, the UBP-X1000ES is compatible with a wide range of Hi-Res music files. 24-bit/192Hz FLAC and DSD (Direct Stream Digital) files give superb sound quality, meaning you won't need to add a separate network streamer to your AV system.

Play it all
As well as Blu-ray, DVD and CDs, the Sony UBP-X1000ES plays a wide range of other discs. SACD (Super Audio Compact Disc) and DVD-A discs can be played as well as audio discs recorded using FLAC, DSD, ALAC or AIFF formats. This gives the Sony the ability to excel with High Resolution music formats, lifting its sound quality well above most Blu-ray players.

Twin HDMI sockets plus coaxial for easy connectivity
Twin HDMI sockets give you flexible connectivity. The second HDMI lets you run an audio source in another room or use the player with older AV receivers that won't pass through 4K HDR signals. A coaxial digital output gives compatibility with other digital components. Powerful built-in Wi-Fi with multi-antenna, effortlessly links to your system.

Bluetooth output
Featuring a Bluetooth transmitter, sound from the Sony can be sent wirelessly to your choice of Bluetooth speaker or headphones. With LDAC, high-fidelity, streaming you’ll also enjoy a significant improvement upon regular Bluetooth sound.

Bring your music together with Sony SongPal
Download SongPal for your smartphone or tablet and take control of your music collection. Simply connect over Wi-Fi and you'll have seamless access to all your favourite tracks, whether they're stored on your PC, server, or online music service. The app can also be used to customise sound settings to ensure great, balanced audio, and control multi-room listening.

DLNA connectivity
DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) compatibility makes it easy to stream and transfer music and video from other DLNA-supported devices on your home network. Laptops, PCs, NAS drives and even games consoles can now all easily be linked together.

Maximise the potential of your OLED or high-end LED TV, with the Sony UBP-X1000ES.
