Affordable Full HD 3D Projector
At an unbeatable price, you can now fulfill the dream of your own 3D home theater.
The device uses technology similar to its big brother, the VPL-VW90ES. However, the Sony VPL-HW30ES now offers even better light output. The dynamic modes the device offers means that brightness can be adjusted in 6 stages. The device also offers a wide color space, allowing for appropriate color calibration and even has the new international xvYCC colour standard.
The HW30ES has 1300 lumens, and in conjunction with the new 3D glasses (TDG-PJ1) gives you an even brighter picture in the 3D mode. The newly developed 3D glasses compared to the previous model offers the advantages of less weight and a better fit. In addition, the image brightness can be adjusted now also on the 3D glass. During the adjustment of the picture modes, the glasses will also accommodate the changes. The 3D glasses can also set image depth in 3D. This feature has also been taken from the VPL-VW90ES.
The new Sony 240Hz SXRD panels mean the device offers an even higher reaction time of 2.0 milliseconds.
The already used in VW90ES Motionflow technology is now also in the VPL-HW30ES used. The faster image display offers an even clearer picture during fast movements.
Besides the 3D function offers the cheapest Full HD 3D projector and new picture modes (Cinema 1-3, Photo, Game). The Cinema settings provide the best quality from Sony, displays for film, cinema and professional. Including support for photos and games (such as the color space of the PS3). Like the VW90ES, the device offers the possibility to convert 2D content into 3D in real time or simulated (but only when played back via HDMI). It should be noted, however, that the 3D effect is not as pronounced as in the current 3D media.
On the part of the 3D modes (side-by-side, over-under) which are already in VW90ES used, the Sony VPL-HW30ES now offers in side-by-side area also provide a representation in 720/60p. 
Also the unit gets a new, clearer remote control that allows a correspondingly faster picture adjustment.
As with the VPL-VW90ES or other models such as the VPL-HW20 VPL-HW30ES is also with the lens shift function (Hor + / - 65% - 25% / vert + /) equipped. This gives the user the ability to effective 3D projector to position variable, without which he would have to worry about the last inch with the placement of the projector.
Along side the new features come already proven features of the VPL-HW20, such as the Bravia Link, 24p True Cinema, Deep Color and the Advanced Iris 3 are used.
Thus, the Sony VPL-HW30ES a worthy little brother of the VPL-VW90ES, which makes use of its advantages but also brings some improvements.
