The value-packed introduction to true Home Cinema
Expand your horizons beyond the TV screen - and create a spectacular cinematic experience in your own home. Available in a choice of black or white finishes to flatter any interior, the value-packed VPL-HW45ES Home Cinema projector lets you enjoy your favourite entertainment at its best in 2D or 3D.
Made for movie lovers, it's packed with technology developed for our professional Digital Cinema projectors, including SXRD panels and our own Advanced Reality Creation upscaling technology for fabulously detailed Full HD images. Generous 1,800 lumens brightness ensures that films and TV shows look clear and sharp, even in daylit living rooms.
Compact and easy to set up, the VPL-HW45ES fits neatly into any home theatre or living room, with quiet fan noise that won't disturb the show and a front-facing exhaust port for extra installation flexibility. The projector's long-lasting lamp is rated for an extra-generous 6,000 hours operation, for fewer interruptions and reduced maintenance costs.
Cinema-quality SXRD panel technology is teamed with Reality Creation - Sony's Super Resolution processing that refines subtle details, colours and textures. You'll see the difference with crisp, sharp Full HD pictures that take you closer than ever to the original 1080p source.
With an impressive 1,800 lumens brightness, Full HD images stand out with clear, bright highlights – even in well-lit rooms.
The VPL-HW45ES is available in a choice of sleek white or black finishes: take your pick to suit any contemporary or traditional décor.
Coupled with the panel's super-fast response rate, Motionflow technology means you’ll see every detail with minimal blur - no matter how fast the action.
6000 hour rated lamp operating life means simpler maintenance, with fewer lamp swaps and reduced running costs.
The manual zoom lens with a 1.6x zoom ratio and wide lens shift range gives greater installation flexibility in any room size, even with high ceilings.
With the fan exhaust positioned at the front of the projector, you don’t need to worry about wall clearance and room for air inhale/exhaust when installing. This helps maximise throw distance, for the biggest possible projected images.
The VPL-HW45ES is compatible with a wide range of home automation systems via RS-232C/D-sub 9-pin and IR IN interfaces.
The projector's built-in RF transmitter synchronises with any RF 3D glasses for wider coverage and greater stability, so there’s no need for an external transmitter.
You're always up to date with the latest features and firmware updates via the projector's USB port.
