Sony VPL-VW550ES 4K HDR Projector Review




Read Here


” Another issue is how the source HDR luminance code values (peak brightness 1000 nits) should be mapped to projectors’ lower peak brightness (our VW550ES review sample reached 150 nits max on our setup). We used a multiplier for the calibration, but despite our best efforts shadow detail always looked slightly crushed on the VPL-VW550 (verified via Ryan Masciola’s excellent HDR10 test patterns), even though midtones and highlights could be adjusted to impart a gratifying sense of realism and vibrancy. We don’t blame many projector owners for sticking with bog-standard 1080p Blu-rays, or using various metadata stripping tech to stop HDR mode from being triggered while still benefiting from the WCG (wide colour gamut) and UHD resolution of 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray titles.”
