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, colours 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
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 inhale/exhaust when installing. This helps maximise 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.

    Continuing on from where the hugely popular and successful HW55ES left off, the Sony VPL-HW65ES brings to the FULL HD 1080p party, increased contrast for even greater depth to the picture and richer blacks as well as optional accessories such as a WirelessHD system to free you of trailing hdmi cables between source and projector and optional 3D RF glasses.

    The Sony HW65ES retains the generous horizontal and vertical lens shift as well as the 1.6X optical zoom range seen on the HW55ES providing flexible, simple and precise image placement.

    We now have our demo unit and have been putting it through its paces. Running out of the box image preset Cinema Film 1 produces deep blacks and vibrant if slightly saturated colours. Image clarity is razor sharp thanks to the SXRD panels.

    Whilst Cinema Film1 preset is more than acceptable it really is worth spending some time using a calibration disc such as THX Calibrator or Spears and Munsil to fine tune your display according to your viewing environment by adjusting the brightness, contrast, colour and hue/tint. Our demo room is a fully blacked out environment so starting at standard image preset Cinema Film 1 we then adjusted the mentioned settings plus a few other features to the following:

  • Reality creation : On
  • Lamp power : Low
  • Auto Iris : Off
  • Motionflow : Low
  • Contrast : 75
  • Brightness : 49
  • Colour : 51
  • Hue : Unchanged at 50
  • Colour Temp : Custom 3 with Green Bias set to -2
  • Sharpness : 17 

    If your environment is bat cave like, whilst not a full blown calibration, using the above settings really does produce a vibrant, natural and detailed image with rich deep blacks. Of course image is subjective and the above is tailored to our viewing taste.
