Seeing is believing: breathtaking 4K clarity without compromise

Bring the immersive excitement of true 4K cinematic images into every living space. Available also in a contemporary premium white finish, the VPL-VW550ES Home Cinema projector makes a stylish addition to any interior. 

Advanced SXRD panel technology delivers incredible 4K images with four times the resolution of Full HD. You'll experience rich colours, impressive 1800 lumens brightness and huge 350,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio - for vibrant, detail-packed pictures with native 4K resolution that always look clear and sharp, even in daylit living rooms. 

You're future-proofed with compatibility for the latest 4K standards, as well as compatibility with HDR (High Dynamic Range) - so you'll get the very best out of today's content, and tomorrow's. Colour can be easily calibrated to the original factory condition without fuss. The compact VPL-VW550ES fits neatly into any home theatre or living room, with quiet fan noise that won't disturb the show, wide zoom/lens shift range and a front-facing exhaust port for extra installation flexibility. The projector's long-lasting lamp is rated for an extra-generous 6,000 hours* operation (in Low Mode), for fewer interruptions and reduced maintenance costs.

  • Cinematic 4K clarity with four times the detail of Full HD

    SXRD panel technology featured in our professional cinema projectors delivers native 4K (4096 x 2160) resolution images, with no artificial pixel enhancement. Every detail is clear and natural, without jagged edges or visible pixels.

  • Very high brightness and contrast

    With an impressive 1,800 lumens brightness and spectacular 350,000:1 dynamic contrast range, 4K images are clear with bright highlights and rich, deep blacks – even in well-lit rooms.

  • Premium white finish

    The projector is also available in a stunning premium white finish that works well in any contemporary or traditional décor.

  • Smooth, fluid on-screen action

    Coupled with the panel's super-fast response rate, Motionflow technology means you’ll see every detail with minimal blur - no matter how fast the action.

  • TRILUMINOS™ Display for wider, more natural colours

    Sony's TRILUMINOS™ Display technology accurately reproduces a much broader range of colours than a standard projector system. You'll see the difference with finely-reproduced tones and textures plus greater colour purity, depth and realism.

  • HDR Compatible

    Take full advantage of the latest content produced with HDR (High Dynamic Range) for extremely wide contrast with an even higher range of brightness levels.

  • Future-proofed support for latest standards

    The VPL-VW550ES can project content at up to 60 frames per second (fps) in 4K (at colour signal YCbCr 4:2:0 / 10 bit) for even smoother images with superior colour and realism. Support for HDCP 2.2 lets you enjoy the latest 4K content services.

  • Reality Creation upscales movies to 4K

    As well as projecting native 4K content, the VPL-VW550ES upscales your Full HD Blu-ray™ or DVD movie collection to 4K with Reality Creation - Sony's Super Resolution processing technology that enhances lower-resolution content, and even upscales 3D movies to 4K resolution.

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

    Enjoy 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.

  • Long-lasting lamp

    6000 hour* rated lamp operating life (in Low mode) means simpler maintenance, with fewer lamp swaps and reduced running costs.

    * The figures are expected maintenance time and not guaranteed. They will depend on the environment or how the projector is used.

  • Picture position memories

    Memorises up to five zoom lens positions for future viewing. Stored settings can be matched to a movie’s aspect ratio, including 16:9 and Cinemascope.

  • Flexible home installation with wide zoom and shift lens

    The powered zoom lens with a 2.06x zoom ratio and wide lens shift range gives greater installation flexibility in any room size, even with high ceilings.

  • Front-facing fan

    With the fan exhaust positioned at the front of the projector, you don’t need to worry about wall clearance and room for air inhale/exhaust when installing. This helps maximise throw distance, for the biggest possible projected images.

  • Built-in auto calibration

    Set-up is quick and easy: auto calibration ensures superb pictures without effort.

  • Industry standard RF 3D compatible

    The projector's built-in RF transmitter synchronises with any RF 3D glasses for wider coverage and greater stability, so there’s no need for an external transmitter.

Why buy from us?

Why buy from us?

Rapallo is an independently owned New Zealand company and with more than 12 years experience, we offer you both technical expertise and superior service.

Rapallo is fully authorized to sell products by all of the manufacturers listed on our website and in our store. In most cases we are more than a reseller, we are a direct dealer who also receives training and where possible we personally test products we sell.

Authorized dealers like us offer peace of mind. Rapallo:

  • Meets manufacturer's standards, from sales to service, in order to receive authorized status.
  • Often receives training directly from manufacturer representatives and shares that expertise with you.
  • Provides  support for all the products they sell.
  • Ensures that manufacturer warranties will be honoured.
  • Buys directly from big brand manufacturers and guarantee you buy NZ new, (NO GREY IMPORTS OR PARALLEL IMPORTS).

The Internet is an incredibly convenient information source and a wonderful way to find savings on the products you want. Protect yourself online by buying from authorized dealers, with genuine feedback and reputations.

A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you've ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself, "Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?"

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don't fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.

  • Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
  • You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
  • Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
  • Hidden charges which don't show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
  • When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.
  • There are so many scamming online sellers today, “buyer beware” protect yourself!

Concerned About Fraud?

The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many  different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating….

So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

  • Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
  • Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
  • Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
  • Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it's genuine or not.

We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
