Details from Sony

    Immersive, Vibrant Picture

    Enjoy an immersive picture with deep black levels in just about any home theater environment through the VPL–HW55ES 120,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and 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 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 3D2

    Add a new dimension to your favorite movies, shows or videos with Sony's unique 2D to 3D up–conversion algorithm, allowing any high definition 2D content connected via HDMI® to be viewed in immersive Sony 3D.

    Whisper–quiet Fan

    Forget that the projector is even in the room. Due to the VPL–HW55ES advanced air discharge system, Sony's whisper–quiet fan emits only 22db during show time.

    Powerful Picture Calibration Features

    Quickly calibrate your picture to the type of content you're enjoying with nine unique modes including a variety of cinema, gaming, photo and user customizable pre–sets.

    Controllable Over RS232

    Seamlessly integrate the VPL–HW55ES into virtually any major automation system via the bi–directional, industry–standard RS232 connection.

    Integrates Into Challenging Rooms

    The VPL–HW55ES can be adjusted to fit complex rooms with its 1.6x manual zoom, and horizontal and vertical shift features and 1/10th pixel step panel alignment.

    Smoother, Sharper Motion

    Enjoy smooth, sharp motion with Sony's Motionflow™ technology with Dark Frame Insertion and 24p True Cinema™ technologies.

    Three–year Limited Warranty

    Rest assured that Sony has you covered. All Sony Elevated Standard (ES) projectors enjoy three–year limited warranties, including a special tech support hotline in case you run into any problems.
