Delivering an immersive cinematic experience and Full HD 1080p resolution, the VPL-HW15 BRAVIA® SXRD™ 1080p projector is the perfect home theater solution. This projector features three SXRD micro-display panels that work with a specially developed ARC-F (All Range Crisp Focus) lens and BRAVIA Engine™ 2 digital video processor to display stunning, life-like images on a scale that no flat panel HDTV can match. A 200W lamp provides startling brightness for enhanced performance in rooms with ambient light from lamps or windows, and Advanced Iris 3 technology delivers high contrast of up to 60,000:1 by automatically optimizing picture brightness on a scene-by-scene basis.
Three SXRD 1920 x 1080p micro-display panels support Full HD 1080p resolution for an impressive combination of vivid color, film-like image quality, and high-definition brilliance. Enjoy cinematic-quality images.
The Advanced Iris 3 function provides up to a 60,000:1 contrast ratio1 by optimizing both dark and bright scenes to produce deep black levels with stunning details.
By combining a 10-bit processor with 10-bit SXRD™ panels, the VPL-HW15 can create and display 64 times the level of color expression of 8-bit projectors, resulting in smoother color gradations and helping to avoid a “paint-by-numbers” look.
A Panel Alignment function enables pixel alignment to within 1/10th of a pixel5, making it possible to shift the entire picture to adjust for color gaps and produce a brighter, clearer, and more detailed picture.
Exclusive Sony-designed fan delivers efficient cooling and whisper-quiet operation (22dB).
RS-232C connectivity enables operation of the projector using a home theater automation controller.
The VPL-HW15 features a sophisticated yet functional design, with a dark exterior that coordinates well with home theater environments.
BRAVIA Engine 2 fully digital video processor uses a collection of unique Sony® algorithms to significantly reduce noise, enhance overall image detail, and optimize contrast so every scene produces sharp, vibrant, life-like images.
x.v.Color technology3 takes HD color expression to new levels. When connected to x.v.Color capable video sources, such as select Sony® camcorders, the VPL-HW15 can display nearly twice as many (1.8x) viewable colors as the existing RGB color standard, resulting in more natural, life-like images.
The VPL-HW15 features noise reduction functions that analyze scenes in real time to identify various types of noise and reduce unwanted artifacts, such as mosquito noise and block noise, without compromising the video signal.
Adjustable Lens Shift provides vertical and horizontal adjustments of the picture position expanding the projector's placement and installation options without distorting image quality.
The VPL-HW15 features various analog inputs including YPbPr Component, S-Video, Composite video, and a PC input (D-sub 15-pin) for easy connection to a wide variety of video sources.
RCP (Real Color Processing) function allows adjustment of specific colors on the picture without changing the overall image's color and hue.
A 200W Ultra-High-Pressure Lamp delivers natural color with a brightness of 1000 ANSI lumens2.
24p True Cinema technology provides a direct connection to 24p video sources so you can avoid conversions and enjoy films at their intended 24 fps (frames per second).
A specially developed ARC-F (All Range Crisp Focus) lens takes full advantage of the SXRD™ panels to deliver Full HD 1080p resolution with superior clarity and focus.
A 1.6x zoom lens provides a short focus distance and takes full advantage of Sony® SXRDTM technology to provide superior resolution and focus.
The VPL-HW15 BRAVIA® SXRD™ 1080p Home Cinema Projector offers two HDMI inputs (up to 1080/60p capable) that deliver uncompressed digital video over one cable (cable sold separately).
BRAVIA Sync gives you one-touch access and control functionality other over BRAVIA Sync compatible equipment using the projector’s remote and on-screen display5.
