Sony VPL-HW45ES Details

Sony VPL-HW45ES - Full HD SXRD Home Cinema Projector
  • Full HD picture quality
  • 1800 lumens brightness
  • Advanced Reality Creation
  • Smooth action with Motionflow technology

The Sony VPL-HW45ES helps you create a spectacular theater experience in your own home. Light, compact, and easy to set up, the VPL-HW45ES fits neatly into any living room or home theater, with quiet fan noise that won't disturb the show and a front-facing exhaust port for extra installation flexibility. The projector's lamp is extra-long lasting for a generous 6,000 hours of operation.

1800 lumens brightness for a vivid picture
Savor the action with the brightness you need to get high contrast across the screen. A 215W lamp generates the brightness required for vibrant images in living theatre environment.

Resolution on a grand scale
Get closer to the 1080p original and see more details and colors in your movies with Reality Creation, Sony's intelligent resolution technology.

Select from nine picture calibration modes
Quickly calibrate the picture to what you’re watching or playing. Select from nine picture calibration modes, including two cinema film modes, cinema digital, reference, TV, photo, game, bright cinema, and bright TV. An advanced HSV manual color tuning tool gives you even more control.

Built-in 3D transmitter synchronizes entertainment
An industry-standard RF 3D transmitter synchronizes the optional glasses with the projector, so you can start watching 3D movies faster. Upscale 2D films to 3D and enjoy classic movies in a whole new dimension.

Action stays smooth with Motionflow™
Whatever you are watching, you will enjoy a silk-smooth on-screen look in fast-moving action sequences with Motionflow. This innovative technology creates and inserts extra frames between the original frames by first comparing key visual factors on successive frames, then calculating the split second of missing action in the sequences. True Cinema 24p mode mimics true movie projection for cinema purists.

Watch for longer with a 215 W high-pressure lamp
Enjoy up to 6000 hours of watch time (in low mode) from a long-lasting mercury lamp. This means fewer lamp swaps, simpler maintenance, and lower running costs.

Environmental notice
The lamp in this product contains mercury. Disposal of these materials may be regulated due to environmental considerations. For disposal or recycling information, please contact your local authorities or association.
