Sony has introduced a new 1080p projector, the VPL-HW45ES. This projector uses Sony's SXRD (LCoS) technology, is 3D-capable, and has a rated light output of 1,800 lumens. It features manual zoom (1.6x) and both horizontal (25 percent) and vertical (71 percent) lens shifting, which makes it easier to position the image on your screen. The VPL-HW45ES is available now for $1,999.99.
Sony Electronics announced the launch of their new Full HD 3D home theater projector, the VPL-HW45ES, delivering superior picture quality with vibrant images for a remarkable viewing experience. The new VPL-HW45ES is equipped with the latest innovative technologies and features that enhance users' home theater experience and create a flexible installation for dealers.
Following the success of the VPL-HW65ES, the VPL-HW45ES home theater projector was developed with the demand for high image quality in mind. The new compact VPL-HW45ES projector incorporates Sony's praised SXRD panels and advanced Reality Creation technology. These technologies offer fabulously detailed Full HD images, with improved brightness, contrast and resolution from its predecessor, the VPL-HW40ES. Viewers will notice the difference with Sony's Super Resolution processing that redefines subtle details, colors and textures, including those affected by compression, taking them a step closer to the 1080p original source.
Ideal for those taking their first step into the home projector market, this cost effective projector fits neatly into any home theater or living room, equipped with a whisper quiet fan that will not disturb the show and a front-facing exhaust port for extra installation flexibility. The projector's long-lasting lamp has an extra-generous operation time of up to 6,000 hours, for fewer interruptions and reduced maintenance costs.
"Sony is committed to creating the highest quality projectors," said Sunil Nayyar, Director of Product Marketing, TV and Projectors, North America. "Sony's VPL-HW45ES Full HD 3D home theater projector delivers crisp images and a stunning display with the advanced SXRD panels and acclaimed Reality Creation technology. With the compact design and forward facing quiet fan, this projector will be the perfect addition to any living room and give flexibility to the installer."
The VPL-HW45ES allows users to enjoy smooth, fluid onscreen action paired with a high brightness and contrast ratio. With an impressive 1,800 lumens brightness, Full HD images are projected that are clear and crisp with bright highlights and deep blacks, even in a well-lit room. Thanks to the USB port on the interface panel of the VPL-HW45ES, users are able to keep the device's firmware up to date with the latest feature and software releases.
The projector, equipped with a built-in RF 3D transmitter, automatically recognizes 2D or 3D content and offers a choice of picture modes to suit any content. With manual zoom and wide lens shift range, the VPL- HW45ES gives greater installation flexibility in any room size. Following on the superiority of the precedent model, the VPL-HW45ES provides advanced picture quality, using the latest SXRD imagers which effectively eliminate the screen door effect, creating an unforgettable viewing experience.
The VPL-HW45ES home theater projector retails at the price of $1,999.99.
