Sony has launched the VPL-HW45ES, a full HD 3D home cinema projector, available from May 2016. The new compact model succeeds the VPL-HW65ES producing less background noise and Reality Creation technology and SXRD panels provide greater brightness, contrast and resolution.
The projector’s lamp offers approximately 6,000 hours operation and the front-facing exhaust port and compact size provide installation flexibility.
The VPL-HW45ES has the same design chassis as the VPL-HW40ES, but the internal technology has been completely upgraded. Sony claims this new projector reproduces colours that are often lost in the packaging process, bringing you closer to the 1080p original with 1,800 ANSI lumens brightness.
SXRD panels, along with Reality Creation and Motionflow features, give users the opportunity to project films in high cinematic quality in 3D and 2D.
The projector is available in black and white allowing it to remain unobtrusive in the home and features a built in RF 3D transmitter and a USB update function to keep firmware up to date.
“Following the success of the VPL-HW65ES and the exceptional feedback we received from our customers, we’ve included its technological prowess and ground breaking features into the new VPL-HW45ES, making a great cinematic experience better and more cost effective than ever,” said Thomas Issa, product manager for home cinema projectors at Sony Europe.
