Making the most of your home cinema experience wouldn't be possible without the Sony VPL HW45ES Home Cinema Projector. This 3D capable projector is packed full of innovative technology specially developed by Sony for their professional Digital Cinema projectors. Stunning, full High Definition images are made possible through Sony's SXRD panels and Advanced Reality Creation upscaling technology that refines subtle details, textures and colours, producing full and sharp HD pictures. The VPL HW45ES's fast response rate coupled with Motionflow technology allows for more fluid on-screen images, reducing motion blur and enabling a sharper image.

Thanks to its compact size and its ease of setup, the Sony VPL HW45ES Home Cinema Projector will fit perfectly in your home cinema, or even your living room, without causing an obstruction or becoming unsightly. The VPL HW45ES's whisper quiet fan will make sure unwanted noise will be reduced in order to allow the user a quiet, immersive experience, and extra flexibility is made possible thanks to the front-facing exhaust port. The Sony VPL HW45ES Home Cinema Projector's resilient, long-lasting bulb will stand up to 6000 hours of operation before a replacement is needed, allowing for reduced maintenance costs and an uninterrupted viewing experience.

The Sony VPL HW45ES Home Cinema Projector is compatible with any RF 3D glasses, using its built-in RF transmitter to synchronise with your glasses for wider coverage and improved stability, meaning you can enjoy immersive 3D movies without the need for an external transmitter.
