Sony Electronics has launched its new new Full HD 3D home theater projector, the VPL-HW45ES, featuring SXRD panels and advanced Reality Creation technology. These technologies are meant to offer more detailed full HD images, with improved brightness, contrast and resolution, compared to company’s predecessor VPL-HW40ES.
Viewers may 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.
Designed for those taking their first step into the home projector market, this cost effective projector is more compact and is equipped with a quieter fan and a front-facing exhaust port for extra installation flexibility. The projector's lamp has an operation time of up to 6,000 hours, for fewer interruptions and reduced maintenance costs. The projector retails at $1,999.99.
“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 also features 1,800 lumens of brightness and a higher contrast ratio. 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.
