The Sony VPL-VW1100ES is the big kahuna in Sony’s line-up of 4K projectors. The previous model, the VW1000ES, received high praise for it’s outstanding picture quality and the VW1100ES appears to be even better.

The Sony VPL-VW1100ES Will Light Your Darkest Hour

The 1100ES, on paper, appears to be the ultimate home theater projector. It has an incredible resolution of 4096 pixels x 2160 pixels which is roughly four times the resolution of 1080p. Of course, resolution isn’t everything. The 1100ES also uses advanced Iris3 technology to boast an enviable contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1.


To match it’s rich contrast ratio, the Sony VPL-VW1100ES has a star-like lumens rating of 2000, but this isn’t the whole story. The 1100ES has a host of features that make it a custom installers dream including HDMI 2.0 compatibility, RS232 Control and 12V Triggers. It’s also compatible with an assortment of home automation systems such as Control4, AMX, Crestron, Savant, RTI & URC.


Currently, there are scant 4K sources that will allow the 1100ES to flex it’s muscles. Sony released the FMP-X1 4K media player last year and more 4K content is sure to be coming down the pipe as the next few months progress. However, based on the features of the VW1100ES, it’s sure to provide a dazzling experience in any home theater at any resolution.
