Japanese electronics giant Sony has announced a brand new Full HD 3D compact home projector aimed primarily at the increasingly popular home cinema market.
The new VPL-HW45ES, which is the successor to the brand’s VPL-HW40ES, features Sony’s Reality Creation system, its Motionflow enhancement technology and a 1080p SXRD panel as standard.
The new model retains the look of the VPL-HW40ES but is said to deliver clear and more detailed images, which results in “better brightness, contrast, and resolution than the VPL-HW40ES,” according to the company’s press release.
Sony’s VPL-HW45ES produces brightness levels of 1,800 ANSI lumens and a long-lasting lamp, which is said to operate up to 6,000 hours before needing to be replaced. This should keep the cost of owning the unit to a minimum over its lifetime. Sony has also trumpeted the new unit’s extremely quiet fan operation, built-in RF 3D transmitter and a USB port for updating the projector’s firmware whenever the latest software is released.
Thomas Issa, the product manager for home cinema projectors at Sony Europe, said: “Following the success of the VPL-HW65ES and the exceptional feedback we received from our customers, we’ve included its technological prowess and groundbreaking features into the new VPL-HW45ES, making a great cinematic experience better and more cost efficient than ever.”
The Sony VPL-HW45ES projector will be released in the UK from May 2016 onwards, and will be available in a choice of black or white outer shells.
