Sony ES
At a Glance
A 100% DCI-P3 wide color gamut is achieved without sacrificing the high brightness of 10,000 lm, with three channels of light sources-a red light laser source is added to the blue light laser and phosphor light sources. Strikingly expressive images deliver an overwhelming viewing experience.

Get to know this product.

  • A stunning 10,000 lumens achieve D65 industry-standard color balance and DCI-P3 color space without brightness loss
  • X1™ Ultimate for projector brings you the best of Sony’s image processing
  • Newly-developed, reliable, full 4K resolution on 3 SXRD™ panel for outstanding contrast

Making Color and Contrast More Real

With Object-based HDR Remaster powered by X1™ Ultimate for projector, the color in individual objects on screen is analyzed and the contrast adjusted, unlike most TVs and projectors where contrast is only adjusted along one black-to-white contrast curve. Because objects are remastered individually, this projector can reproduce greater depth and textures, and more realistic pictures.

Dynamic HDR Enhancer

Dynamic HDR Enhancer powered by X1™ Ultimate for projector delivers the best contrast by processing HDR content scene by scene. It further enhances the contrast in combination with laser light output control, which makes bright scenes brighter and dark scenes darker to deliver bright 4K HDR images.

Individual Objects Analyzed & Enhanced

Object-based Super Resolution technology powered by X1™ Ultimate for projector detects individual objects in a picture and preserves details on screen. Hundreds of objects are identified and their resolution is individually enhanced to give a picture of exceptional accuracy and detail.

Dual Database Processing

One database is used to clean the picture, reducing on-screen noise, and the other is used to upscale the resolution, improving clarity. These two powerful image improvement databases work together, dynamically improving pixels in real time. Each database has tens of thousands of references, amassed from our experience creating content for TV and films over the years.

Watch Bright Images for Years with a Z-Phosphor Laser Light

The VPL-GTZ380 uses an ultra-pure and reliable Z-Phosphor™ laser light source. This Sony-developed laser light source lets you enjoy perfectly clear 4K pictures at optimal brightness for up to 20,000 uninterrupted hours. No lamp replacements required, and virtually zero maintenance.

Digital Contrast Optimizer

With Digital Contrast Optimizer, the challenging dark parts of a projected image are reproduced with incredible depth. Low luminance details are detected and automatically compensated for, preventing washed-out, floating blacks and delivering unrivaled contrast.

Digital Focus Optimizer

Optimum focus is achieved not only optically, but also digitally, with the Digital Focus Optimizer. By analyzing every pixel of the images with our own algorithm and detecting possible optical degradation in advance, the Digital Focus Optimizer performs optimum image quality correction so that the focus is better than ever, even in the corners.

4K Motionflow™

The powerful video processor in the VPL-GTZ380 offers Motionflow™ for smooth and clear motion, even when viewing 4K content. Motionflow™ is best for fast-moving sports content, as it adds frames to reduce blur while maintaining brightness. Cinema purists can choose True Theater mode to retain the original 24fps.

Corner-to-Corner Sharpness with the ARC-F Lens

For pristine image quality across the entire screen, the VPL-GTZ380 features an All-Range Crisp Focus (ARC-F) lens. This large-aperture lens adopts an all-glass design for its 18 elements, including six Extra Low-Dispersion (ELD) elements. This ensures optimal convergence of the red, green and blue primaries even at the extreme edges of the image, for a clear and vivid image wherever you look.

Motorized Zoom Lens and Wide Lens Shift

Installing this projector in your room is easy with a 2.06x motorized zoom and a wide lens shift range. Adjust the position of the projector by up to 80% vertically and 31% horizontally using lossless optical adjustments, to get just the right angle for your movies.

HDR Compatibility: Every Image Comes to Life

Get the most from your projector when viewing new UHD Blu-ray and streaming services with High Dynamic Range (HDR). HDR video offers a vastly expanded brightness range to deliver far more realistic, high-contrast images and brilliant colors. Compatible with both HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) formats, Sony's home projectors reproduce color and contrast faithfully to the creators' intent.

Picture Position Memory Stores Your Settings

Store focus, zoom, and lens shift settings for up to five screen formats for easy recall. Picture Position Memories store key settings so you can quickly watch movies in the ideal format. Match aspect ratios, including 16:9 and Cinemascope, and store these settings in the projector.

Make the Home Theater Experience Bigger and Better than Ever.

Sony 4K projectors are compatible with IMAX Enhanced content, making them ready to deliver the bigger, more breathtaking IMAX visuals you love in compatible content. Take advantage of the size of your projector screen with movies that become even more immersive with IMAX Enhanced.
