Essential Info

Bring the cinema home with the versatile Sony VPL-HW50ES. It projects stunning 1080p 2D and 3D performance with bright, vibrant picture, plus a 100,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, and 2D to 3D up-scaling. Paired with a whisper-quiet fan and ultra-smooth playback with Motionflow™ technology, this projector is worth the price of admission. Additional lamp included. Featuring SXRD® technology, 1700 lumen brightness, and "Reality Creation" super resolution processing, the VPL-HW50ES ES (Elevated Standard) 3D home theater projector produces outstanding, vibrant images. The integrated 3D transmitter, dynamic lamp control and 240Hz panel drive work together to create bright 3D images nearly free of crosstalk.

Reality Creation processing
Ten years in the making, Sony's proprietary Reality Creation processing means that unlike most projectors that can only attempt at faithfully reproducing a 1080p signal, the VPL-HW50ES reproduces the original image prior to compression to achieve 1080p. Reality Creation works by analyzing each pixel, cross-referencing it to an internal database of images and patterns, then replacing the missing data resulting from compression. The result, a 1080p image that is clearer, sharper and more lifelike.

Picture perfect
Want the perfect picture in your home theater? Get rich, deep black levels resulting from a 100,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. You'll also have no problem projecting right through ambient light brilliantly thanks to 1,700 ANSI lumen brightness.

Bye-bye black bars
Recreate a more authentic cinematic experience with the capability to eliminate black bars during movies. The VPL-HW50ES supports anamorphic 2.35 when paired with an external lens.

Align panels perfectly
144 zone panel alignment function allows for +/-2 pixels in 0.1 pixel increments - allowing you to align the panels perfectly for optimal picture quality. This functionality allows you to correct for potential chromatic aberration caused by an external anamorphic lens.
