Product Description

Sony VPL-HW55ES Full HD Projector

Go far beyond the reach of TV

Resolution on a bigger scale: Get closer to the 1080p original and see more details and colours in your movies with Reality Creation, our intelligent resolution technology.

Greater detail: With a dynamic contrast ratio of 120,000:1, blacks and whites are optimised for finer detail, even in dark scenes.

Brighter than before: At 1,700 lumens, it's much brighter than our other 3D models, producing clearer images and faithful colour even in well-lit rooms.

Automatic contrast adjustment: A Contrast Enhancer uses Advanced Iris3 technology to automatically adjust light and dark areas in every shot.

3D that jumps out at you: Compatible with the latest RF transmitter for better range and stability (RF glasses/emitter are optional accessories).

Go wireless: Ditch the cables with an optional wireless HDMI kit: connects wirelessly to Blu-ray Disc™ player, games console, and more.

Sharper, smoother motion: Motionflow creates extra images between the original frames: you'll see every detail and less blur, even in fast-moving scenes.

Crystal clear, with minimal crosstalk: SXRD panels reproduce up to 240 frames per minute, for super-sharp images, and synchronise with 3D glasses for minimal 'ghosting'.

Intelligent lamp system: Dynamic Lamp Control syncs with 3D glasses to boost brightness and create greater visual impact; also maximises lamp efficiency.

Built-in IR 3D transmitter: IR 3D glasses synchronise with the built-in transmitter, no need for cables.

Automatic 2D and 3D modes: The projector automatically recognises 2D or 3D content. You can pre-select specific settings, like Cinema mode and colour settings.

Low fan noise: An advanced cooling system keeps projector noise to a minimum.

Finer tuning: Make gamma adjustments to image brightness according to the light in the room or the on-screen picture: 11 modes available.

Flexible installation: With a wider vertical lens shift range than our other 3D Home Cinema projectors, there are greater options for installation.

Precision alignment: Electronic panel alignment adjusts the blue and red elements in each pixel for precise colour and clarity.

Manually adjust colour, hue, and brightness: Real Colour Processing (Version 2) allows you to select a target on the projected picture for finer adjustments.
