The Sony VPL-HW30ES 3D Home Cinema Projector is a great Home Cinema projector with 1300 lumens of brightness and a 70000:1 contrast ratio.
This may not sound as impressive as many lower priced Projectors, but that is because it is designed from the ground up for dedicated Home cinema and not Data! This is the same approach by all the top Projector manufacturers aiming for the serious viewer.
Packed with exciting innovative features which are easy to use and control, you can experience enhanced immersive 3D movie content without having to leave your sofa. Of course the VPL-HW30ES has the features you've come to expect from a high-quality installation projector. It can display 720p, 1080i and 1080p high definition images and its international capabilities include being able to automatically select and project NTSC, NTSC 4.43, PAL, PAL-M, PAL-N, PAL-60 and SECAM signals.
But with the VPL-HW30ES and a LAN connection you can do more. You can actually present from any computer on the network. If you manually register your PC's IP address with the projector, you can project from anywhere on the Internet. That's great for teleconferencing and distance learning applications.
BRAVIA Sync simplifies and enhances the home theater experience. Through the control capabilities of HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface), the devices sync with one another for intuitive operations such as one touch play and system standby
Fully Digital Signal Processing
Incorporated High quality Engine in the VPL-HW30ES is a fully digital integrated picture enhancement engine, optimally engineered by Sony for front projectors. This high quality Engine relies on a collection of Sony-unique algorithms such as noise reduction and color enhancement to produce sharp, vibrant, lifelike images
RCP (Real Color Processing) Ver.2
The VPL-HW30ES offers an "RCP (Real Color Processing)" function to adjust the color and hue of each target color of the projected picture independently. Additionally, version 2 adds the ability to adjust the brightness at the same time. With this capability, dealer and enthusiastic users can tweak the images to perfection
Panel Alignment Function
The VPL-HW30ES is configured with a function that compensates for gaps in character or color management. It is possible to select R (Red) or B (Blue) to make adjustments based on G (Green), and to adjust the horizontal and vertical direction by shifting the full image or selecting points of each color
Adjustable Lens Shift
The VPL-HW30ES has an adjustable lens shift function. Picture position (both horizontal and vertical) can be easily adjusted with the motorized adjustable lens shift function, which expands the projector's placement and installation options without distorting image quality
New Remote Commander
The VPL-HW30ES is supplied with a new remote commander, with backlit buttons for ease of use in darkened rooms, one-touch control for many popular adjustments, and easy grip for practical convenience
Extremely Low Fan Noise (22dB)
The VPL-HW30ES runs very quietly with an advanced air discharge system. Through a highly efficient cooling system, fan noise is suppressed to a mere 22dB at one metre. With whisper-quiet fan noise, users can concentrate on a movie or game in a quiet environment without distraction
Advanced Iris3 Control
This is an automatic Iris control feature that enhances the contrast in accordance with the scene. It maximizes black and white levels without diminishing peak brightness
Separate 2D and 3D Modes
The VPL-HW30ES allows you to pre-select separate parameters for 2D and 3D content under a variety of application modes - dynamic, standard, game, living, cinema and presentation - as well as automatically recognizing 2D or 3D input
Dynamic Lamp Control Technology
When each of the shutters on your 3D glasses (not included) opens, Dynamic Lamp Control technology automatically boosts the brightness in the image to that eye, maximizing the picture's impact and the lamp's efficiency
Motionflow technology allows the VPL-HW30ES to display twice as many images per second. This algorithm, unique to Sony, creates completely new images based on the incoming signal, and inserts them between the original frames to reproduce smoother, sharper motion
SXRD Panel Technology
SXRD panels minimize the gaps between pixels to 0.2μm for sharper, dot-free images, making it possible to reproduce 240 frames per second. The opening and closing of the shutters on the 3D are synchronized to ensure that each eye receives the correct image, reducing crosstalk to a minimum. The result is stunningly detailed, high definition 3D images that you believe you can reach out and touch
Improved 3D Brightness
The VPL-HW30ES delivers three times the brightness of the VPL-VW90ES through its new lamp and electronic technology, also giving better light efficiency for time sequential 3D pictures
