It is equipped with a whisper quiet fan and a front-facing exhaust port for extra installation flexibility.

Following the success of the VPL-HW65ES, the VPL-HW45ES has nearly identical specs for half the cost. The new projector incorporates Sony’s SXRD panels and advanced Reality Creation technology.

The value-packed VPL-HW45ES allows users to enjoy smooth, fluid on-screen action paired with a high brightness and contrast ratio. With an impressive 1,800 lumens brightness, Full HD images are projected claim to be clear and crisp with bright highlights and deep blacks, even in a well-lit room. Thanks to the USB port on the interface panel of the VPL-HW45ES, users are able to keep the device’s firmware up to date with the latest feature and software releases.
The projector, equipped with a built-in RF 3D transmitter, automatically recognizes 2D or 3D content and offers a choice of picture modes to suit any content.
