About the Sony VPL-HW50ES

The Sony VPL-HW50ES is a new 3D home cinema projector (Black) that includes the very latest technology and delivers a premium home theatre experience. Packed with many new innovative features that draw on Sony latest Optical Engine, the VPL-HW50ES utilizes Sony clever 'Reality Creation' to dramatically enhance high definition 1080p content to deliver sharp and crisp Full HD images.

Improving the light efficiency of the lamp and with an optimized optical block, the brightness is increased by approximately 30% giving much brighter and clearer images in well-lit living rooms. The VPL-HW50ES also provides rich color reproduction due to the improved optical engine design and the same color management method as the VPL-VW1000ES.

Sony VPL-HW50ES Features

  • Bright Cinema and Bright TV Mode for Living Room Theatre: Conventional home cinema projectors typically enhance the green color to secure the image brightness, however, the VPL-HW50ES boasts the new Bright Cinema and Bright TV Mode
  • Contrast Enhancer Function: This function automatically adjusts the contrast for optimum viewing. It compensates for dark and bright parts of an image by analyzing the signal component of each scene in real time to ensure that the optical contrast is obtained
  • Motion flow technology allows the VPL-HW50ES 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 0.2um for sharper, dot-free images, making it possible to reproduce up to 240 frames per second
  • 100,000:1 Dynamic Contrast: Thanks to contrast enhancer technology and the Advanced Iris3 technology, the projector has a dynamic contrast ratio of more than 100,000:1. It maximizes black and white levels without diminishing peak brightness to ensure no detail is missed in dark scenes
  • Extremely Low Fan Noise (21dB): The VPL-HW50ES runs very quietly with an advanced air discharge system. Through a highly efficient cooling system, fan noise is suppressed to a mere 21dB. With whisper-quiet fan noise, you can concentrate on a movie or game in a quiet environment without distraction
  • Advanced Iris3 Control: This automatic Iris control feature enhances the contrast in accordance with the scene. It maximizes black and white levels without diminishing peak brightness
  • Gamma Adjustment Function: With 11 modes to select, it is possible to fine tune image brightness according to the room conditions or the screen content
  • Dynamic Lamp Control Technology for 3D: When each of the shutters on the 3D glasses opens, Dynamic Lamp Control Technology automatically boosts the brightness (approximately 3x brighter) in the image to that eye, maximizing the picture's impact and the lamp's efficiency
  • Improved Lens Shift Range: The vertical range is wider than Sony's conventional models. This expands the projector's placement and installation options without distorting image quality
  • Improved Panel Alignment Function: The VPL-HW50ES is configured with a function that compensates for gaps in character or color management
  • Built-in 3D Sync Transmitter: You can synchronize the projector with the 3D glasses thanks to the 3D synchronous transmitter built into the front of the projector, thus reducing set-up time and removing the need for extra cabling
  • RCP (Real Color Processing) Version 2: The VPL-HW50ES 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
  • Separate 2D and 3D Modes: The VPL-HW50ES allows you to pre-select separate parameters for 2D and 3D content under a variety of application modes - Dynamic, Standard, Game, Cinema and Photo - as well as automatically recognizing 2D or 3D input
