An outstanding cinematic experience
The VPL-HW55ES is a fantastic option for movie lovers who want an incredible cinematic experience at home, far beyond the reach of TV. It’s packed with our latest technology, including Reality Creation and advanced SXRD panels for an incredibly sharp, crystal clear picture.
High brightness and contrast ratio
With 1,700 lumens colour brightness and a contrast ratio of 120,000:1, you can enjoy your favourite films at their best, in 3D or 2D. Bright Cinema and Bright TV modes also ensure optimum brightness and superb, rich colour quality.
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.
Thanks to an improved optical engine, the VPL-HW55ES is much brighter than our previous standard home cinema projectors. At 1,700 lumens, it produces clearer images and faithful colours, even in well-lit rooms.
Conventional home cinema projectors sacrifice some colour accuracy by increasing greens to improve brightness. With Bright Cinema and Bright TV modes, the VPL-HW55ES retains true colour and contrast, even in a bright environment.
Optical engine improvements and advanced Iris 3 technology mean we’ve achieved an incredible dynamic contrast ratio of 120,000:1. It maximises blacks and whites without diminishing brightness so you won’t miss a detail, even in dark scenes.
You can expect a longer lamp replacement time from the VPL-HW55ES: up to 5,000 hours (roughly 60% longer than our standard home cinema projectors). This lowers your running costs and total cost of ownership.
Automatically adjusts contrast for optimum viewing by analyzing dark and light areas in every scene, without diminishing colour.
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.
Our SXRD panels reduce pixel gaps and reproduce up to 240 frames per seconds for super-sharp images. Because our 3D glasses have a synchronised shutter speed, you’ll enjoy incredible high-definition 3D with minimal crosstalk.
When each of the shutters of your 3D glasses opens, Dynamic Lamp Control boosts the brightness by three times: this maximises picture impact as well as lamp efficiency.
No set-up time or cables, just synchronise the VPL-HW55ES with your IR 3D glasses via the built-in transmitter.
The VPL-HW55ES automatically recognises 2D or 3D content and allows you to pre-select Standard, Dynamic, Cinema, Game and Photo modes.
Our advanced cooling system means fan noise is reduced to a whisper-quiet 21db.
Fine tune image brightness according to the light in the room or the on-screen picture. There are 11 modes to select from.
A wider vertical range than our standard home cinema projectors allows more options for placement and installation, without reducing image quality.
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.
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.
