Product Details

Sony Full HD 3D Home Cinema Projector - VPLHW40ES

Featuring SXRD® technology, 1800 lumen brightness, and "Reality Creation" super resolution processing, this projector produces outstanding, vibrant images. The integrated 3D transmitter, and 240Hz panel drive work together creating bright 3D images nearly free of crosstalk. These features, combined with the whisper quiet 21dB operation, make the VPL-HW40ES the perfect choice.


  • Immersive, vibrant picture
    Enjoy an immersive picture with deep black levels in just about any home theater environment through the VPL-HW40ES with 1,700 ANSI lumen brightness
  • As close to the original masters as possible
    Watch your favorite HD movies and television shows with detail as close to the original masters as possible. Sony's proprietary Reality Creation algorithm restores important fine detail that was lost due to compression during the mastering process, even for high definition video
  • Cinema-like 3D brightness
    Sony's dynamic lamp control technology and optional rechargeable 3D glasses work together perfectly to establish vibrant, cinema-quality brightness levels on your favorite 3D movies and shows
  • 240Hz for a better 3D picture
    The 240Hz panel drive, along with dynamic lamp control technology, minimizes 3D crosstalk. This greatly diminishes the possibility of ghosting when watching 3D
  • Watch standard HD content in 3D
