Sony VPL-HW65ES HD Home Theater ES Projector Features:

Spectacular Full HD pictures with Reality Creation

  • Advanced SXRD panel technology is teamed with Reality Creation - Sony's Super Resolution processing technology that refines subtle details, colors and textures. You'll see the difference with crisp, sharp Full HD pictures that take you closer than ever to the original 1080p source.

High brightness and contrast

  • With an impressive 1,800 lumens brightness and high 120,000:1 dynamic contrast range, Full HD images are clear and with bright highlights and rich, deep blacks – even in well-lit rooms.

Smooth, fluid on-screen action

  • 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.

Long-lasting lamp

  • Up to 6000 hour rated lamp operating life (in Low mode) means simpler maintenance, with fewer lamp swaps and reduced running costs.

Flexible home installation with wide zoom and shift lens

  • 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.

Front-facing fan

  • With the fan exhaust positioned at the front of the projector, you don’t need to worry about wall clearance and room for air intake/exhaust when installing. This helps maximize throw distance, for the biggest possible projected images.

Home automation with IP control

  • The VPL-HW65ES is compatible with a wide range of home automation systems via an RJ45(IP), RS-232C, TRIGGER and IR IN interfaces.

Industry standard RF 3D compatible

  • The projector's built-in RF transmitter synchronizes with compatible Sony and 3rd party RF 3D glasses for wider coverage and greater stability, so there’s no need for an external transmitter.

USB updates

  • You're always up to date with the latest features and firmware updates via the projector's USB port.

Cinema-like 3D brightness

  • Sony’s dynamic lamp control technology and rechargeable 3D glasses work together perfectly to establish vibrant, cinema-quality brightness levels on your favorite 3D movies and shows.

240Hz for a better 3D picture

  • The 240Hz panel drive, along with dynamic lamp control technology, minimizes 3D crosstalk. This greatly diminishes the possibility of ghosting when watching 3D content.

Watch standard HD content in 3D

  • Add a new dimension to your favorite movies, shows or videos with Sony’s unique 2D to 3D up-conversion algorithm, allowing any high definition 2D content connected via HDMI to be viewed in immersive Sony 3D.

Whisper-quiet fan

  • Forget that the projector is even in the room due to the advanced air discharge system. Sony’s whisper-quiet fan emits only 21db during show time.

Powerful picture calibration features

  • Quickly calibrate your picture to the type of content you’re enjoying with nine unique modes including a variety of cinema, gaming, photo and user customizable pre-sets.

Three-year limited warranty

  • All Sony Elevated Standard (ES) projectors enjoy three-year limited warranties.
