Features

SXRD panel technology
With our SXRD panels technology for super-sharp images, you’ll enjoy incredible high-definition pictures at home.
1700 lumens brightness with faithful colour reproduction
Thanks to an improved optical engine, the VPL-HW40ES is much brighter than our previous standard home cinema projectors. At 1700 lumens, it produces clearer images and faithful colours, even in well-lit rooms.
Reality Creation – Super Resolution function
Developed for our leading 4K home cinema projector (VPL-VW1000ES), Reality Creation reproduces colours and textures that are lost when movies are packaged to disc. It gives you crisper, sharper Full HD pictures, much closer to the 1080p original.
Bright Cinema and Bright TV modes
Conventional home cinema projectors sacrifice some colour accuracy by increasing greens to improve brightness. With Bright Cinema and Bright TV modes, the VPL-HW40ES retains true colour and contrast, even in a bright environment.
Contrast Enhancer
Automatically adjusts contrast for optimum viewing by analysing dark and light areas in every scene, without diminishing colour.
Motionflow
See every detail, even in fast-moving action scenes or sports. Motionflow technology shows twice as many pictures per second by creating extra images between the original frames. The result is smoother, sharper motion with less blur.
Wider lens shift range
A wider vertical range than our standard home cinema projectors allows more options for placement and installation, without reducing image quality.
Extremely low fan noise
Our advanced cooling system means fan noise is reduced to a whisper-quiet 21db.
Perfect panel alignment
Electronic panel alignment ensures precise colour and clarity. Any colour gaps are corrected by shifting the blue and red areas of each pixel into perfect alignment with green.
Built-in IR 3D transmitter
No set-up time or cables, just synchronise the VPL-HW40ES with your IR 3D glasses via the built-in transmitter.
2D and 3D modes
The VPL-HW40ES automatically recognises 2D or 3D content and allows you to select various picture modes to fit in your contents..
Gamma adjustment
Fine tune image brightness according to the light in the room or the on-screen picture. There are 7 modes to select from.
Real Colour Processing (RCP Version 2)
Adjust the colour and hue using a target on the projected picture. RCP Version 2 also allows you to adjust brightness at the same time.
