Sony announces new Full-HD 3D home cinema projector- VPL-HW40ES
Sony today announced its new Full-HD 3D home cinema projector, the VPL-HW40ES, which brings a big screen experience to a wider audience. From action-packed thrillers to drama and absorbing documentaries, the VPL-HW40ES brings movies and TV shows and sports programming to life in 2D or 3D with vibrant colors, detail and contrast. The VPL-HW40ES delivers the high quality, immersive images of a big screen cinema experience into the home using the same SXRD panel technology featured in Sony’s high-end digital cinema projectors, but at a fraction of the price.
With an extra-wide lens shift range, the Sony VPL-HW40ES offers more options for positioning the projector from a ceiling mount or off-center horizontally, so that users will always get beautifully proportioned pictures. The VPL-HW40ES has a built-in IR 3D transmitter, automatically recognizes 2D or 3D content and offers a choice of picture modes to suit any content. Noise-shaping ensures that fan sounds are at a lower frequency, emitting only 21dB, so sound is unobtrusive. The VPL-HW40ES will be available in April 2014 in black for under $2,500.
