Sony has said its VPL-HW15 - the latest addition to the Sony Bravia SXRD home cinema projector range - and VPL-BW7 projectors make HD-quality home cinema an affordable option for more enthusiasts.

Boasting a 1920x1080 resolution projected to sizes up to 300 inches diagonally, the Bravia VPL-HW15 model features a contrast ratio of 60,000:1 and has been designed to handle images requiring a fast response time, for example sports, gaming and action movies.

"We're always looking to innovate and upgrade our home cinema suite of projectors to ensure we are offering our customers the very best in home cinema projection," explains Sony's Takayuki Nakane.

Featuring Sony's Advanced Iris 3 technology, the VPL-HW15 projector is described as delivering a picture quality which functions like the human eye in that it responds to the level of light in each scene and always selects the optimum contrast.

Meanwhile, Nakane points out that the VPL-BW7 projector "brings HD quality into the home of any enthusiast", enabling users to move the machine from room to room and set it up "almost anywhere".

The VPL-BW7 features Sony's 3LCD panel technology and a contrast ratio of up to 1000:1, delivering 720p HD resolution.
