Detailed Features

Main features for the Sony VPL-HW65ES projector with installation – bundle.

      • Reality Creation – Super Resolution function

        Developed for Sony’s leading 4K home cinema projector (VPL-VW1000ES), Reality Creation reproduces colours and textures that are lost when movies are packaged to disc. It gives you crisper, sharper Full HD pictures, much closer to the 1080p original.

      • 1,800 lumens brightness with faithful colour reproduction

        Thanks to an improved optical engine, the VPL-HW65ES is much brighter than Sony’s previous standard home cinema projectors. At 1,800 lumens, it produces clearer images and faithful colours, even in well-lit rooms.

      • Bright Cinema and Bright TV modes

        Conventional home cinema projectors sacrifice some colour accuracy by increasing greens to improve brightness. With Bright Cinema and Bright TV modes, the VPL-HW65ES retains true colour and contrast, even in a bright environment.

      • Dynamic contrast now 120,000:1

        Optical engine improvements and advanced Iris 3 technology mean we’ve achieved an incredible dynamic contrast ratio of 120,000:1. It maximises blacks and whites without diminishing brightness so you won’t miss a detail, even in dark scenes.

      • Long lasting lamp

        You can expect a longer lamp life from the VPL-HW65ES: up to 5,000 hours (roughly 60% longer than previous home cinema projectors). This lowers your running costs and total cost of ownership.

      • Contrast Enhancer and advanced Iris3

        Automatically adjusts contrast for optimum viewing by analyzing dark and light areas in every scene, without diminishing colour.

      • Motionflow

        See every detail, even in fast-moving action scenes or sports. Motionflow technology shows twice as many pictures per second by creating extra images between the original frames. The result is smoother, sharper motion with less blur.

      • SXRD panel technology

        Our SXRD panels reduce pixel gaps and reproduce up to 240 frames per seconds for super-sharp images. Because our 3D glasses have a synchronised shutter speed, you’ll enjoy incredible high-definition 3D with minimal crosstalk.

      • Dynamic Lamp Control

        When each of the shutters of your 3D glasses opens, Dynamic Lamp Control boosts the brightness by three times: this maximises picture impact as well as lamp efficiency.

      • Built-in RF 3D transmitter

        No set-up time or cables, just synchronise the VPL-HW65ES with your RF 3D glasses via the built-in transmitter.

      • 2D and 3D modes

        The VPL-HW65ES automatically recognises 2D or 3D content and allows you to pre-select Standard, Dynamic, Cinema, Game and Photo modes.

      • Extremely low fan noise

        Our advanced cooling system means fan noise is reduced to a whisper-quiet 21db.

      • Gamma adjustment

        Fine tune image brightness according to the light in the room or the on-screen picture. There are 11 modes to select from.

      • Wider lens shift range

        A wider vertical range than our standard home cinema projectors allows more options for placement and installation, without reducing image quality.

      • Perfect panel alignment

        Electronic panel alignment ensures precise colour and clarity. Any colour gaps are corrected by shifting the blue and red areas of each pixel into perfect alignment with green.

      • Real Colour Processing (RCP Version 2)

        Adjust the colour and hue using a target on the projected picture. RCP Version 2 also allows you to adjust brightness at the same time.
