Sony unveils its latest 2D and 3D home cinema projector that includes tech from its 4K projectors without bumping up the price.
The Sony VPL-HW40ES is a projector with one aim. To make the prospect of building a home cinema not such a bank balance-destroying prospect and all without scrimping on the best specs.

Underneath the glossy, 10kg white exterior of the HW40ES lies technology used in Sony’s more expensive projector range including the SXRD panels used to create the super-sharp, HD images.
Reality Creation has also been included from its 4K projectors to help reproduce the punchy colours while Contrast Enhancer helps generate rich images by analysing scenes in real time.
At the heart of the HW40ES is its 1700 lumen brightness that can deliver the high quality images whether the curtains are closed or the room is well-lit. The fan helping to keep the system cool rattles at a not so loud 21db so it shouldn’t interrupt your viewing.
