Sony VPL-VW550 White and Black

The Sony VPL-VW550 Projector.

Sony’s VPL-VW550 is a true 4K native SXRD projector, which has three native 4K panels (one for each of the primary colours).

This state of the art projector model uses 4K SXRD technology based upon the technology which Sony initially introduced for their highly regarded range of 4K commercial cinema projectors.

This model brings Native 4K panel based projection to a new and much lower price point than has been seen previously. This projector has many of the features of its larger and more expensive brother, the Sony VPL-VW1100.

The VPL-VW550 delivers a Dynamic contrast ratio of 350,000:1 and image brightness of 1800 lumens.

Sony includes a 3 Year Sony prime support contract with this projector.


We bundle the Sony VPL-VW520ES Projector with free installation which includes technical planning, supply and delivery of a top quality ceiling or a wall mount, and up to 10 Metre HDMI 2 cable, surface run from the from the location of any existing source devices. Rounded profile mini trunking can be used if desired. Other requirements can be accommodated, please let us know how we can help.

Detailed Features

Main features for the Sony VPL-VW550 projector with installation – bundle.

  • 4K native resolution: over 4x better than Full HD

No compromises: the VPL-VW550ES provides 4096 x 2160 4K resolution (the DCI standard in digital cinemas). Sony have used their professional cinema expertise to develop 4K SXRD panels and produce a 4K native picture with no artificial enhancement of pixels.

  • Ultra high contrast ratio and brightness 

Drawing on optical technology developed for the VPL-VW1100ES, both high brightness (1,800 ANSI lumens) and high contrast (350,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio) has been achieved in the VPL-VW550. So, you’ll see crystal-clear, bright, detail-packed images – even in well-lit rooms.

  • Advanced SXRD panels 

4K digital drive panels minimise the space between pixels in every frame with an incredible response rate of 2.5-milliseconds. That’s much faster, and more stable, than an LCD TV and produces ultra-smooth, dot-free pictures with natural, fluid movement – whatever the action.

  • Triluminos Display

The VPL-VW550 has an optical engine and SXRD panels which incorporate our Triluminous Display technology to produce a much broader colour range, reproducing more tones and textures than a standard projector system. The result is greater purity, depth and realism.

  • Motionflow 

Motionflow technology has been enhanced. ‘Combination’ mode uses Sony’s ‘Film Projection’ and ‘Motion Enhancer’, adding frames to reduce blur and maintain brightness in thrilling, fast-moving scenes. Cinema purists can choose ‘True Cinema’ to retain the original 24 frames per second.

  • Industry standard RF 3D compatible 

A built-in RF transmitter synchronises with any RF 3D glasses for wider coverage, greater stability, and there’s no need for a cable.

  • Reality Creation: upscales your movies to 4K 

As well as native 4K material, you can see your current Full HD Blu-ray™ or DVD movie collection upscaled for a 4K experience. Reality Creation is a Super Resolution technology that radically enhances Full HD content, even upscaling 3D movies for 4K.

  • Compatible with ‘Mastered in 4K’ Blu-ray™ discs 

Drawing on the same technology used to downscale 4K material for Full HD, the VPL-VW520ES gives you a near native 4K experience with discs ‘Mastered in 4K’. It’s as close as you can get to the 4K-pixel resolution and expanded colour range of the original.

  • New 4K standard: 60 frames per second 

The VPL-VW550 can show up to 60 frames per second in 4K (at colour signal YUV 4:2:0). It’s the new 4K industry standard and is much higher than the earlier 24p. The result is a smoother image with superior colour and realism.

  • Compact design 

A smaller optical engine means the VPL-VW550ES is approximately 18cm shorter in length than Sony’s flagship  home cinema projector, the VPL-VW1100ES, so there’s greater flexibility for installation.

  • Front-facing fan 

Because the fan is positioned at the front, you don’t need to worry about wall space and room for air inhale/exhaust when you install. This helps maximize the throw distance for bigger projected images.

  • Wider zoom and shift lens 

A 2.06 motorised zoom lens and wide lens shift range of 85% vertical and 31% horizontal gives greater installation flexibility – even when the ceiling is very high.

  • Suitable for home automation

The VPL-VW550 is compatible with many home automation systems. It has an RS232 interface, RJ45 control, and IR-IN terminal.

  • Auto calibration

After extended periods, colour can be automatically calibrated to the original factory condition. There’s no need for extra calibration equipment or cameras; a built-in colour sensor stores all the necessary information.

  • Manual HSV Colour Correction

A correction tool allows you to adjust the hue, saturation, and brightness of each colour to get exactly the picture you want.

  • Picture Position Memory

This feature remembers the position of the zoom lens. You can match it to a movie’s aspect ratio (including 16:9 and Cinemascope) and store the settings for a future viewing.

  • Electronic panel alignment

Ensures the red and blue elements in each pixel are precisely positioned against green. Adjustments can be made by as little as 0.1 pixels for optimum clarity.

  • Wireless option (up to Full HD 60p)

Free yourself from cables and keep things tidy with an optional wireless HDMI emitter/ receiver kit. The VPL-VW550 can wirelessly connect to your games console, Blu-ray Disc™ player and more, and upscales for a 4K experience with Reality Creation.

  • USB updates

To get the best from your projector, the VPL-VW550 has a USB port for the latest firmware updates.
