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.

    Come and see the Sony VPL-HW65 in action in our demo room and judge for yourself!
