Available in a choice of black or white finishes to flatter any interior, the value-packed VPL-HW45ES Home Cinema projector lets you enjoy your favourite entertainment at its best in 2D or 3D.

Made for movie lovers, it's packed with technology developed for our professional Digital Cinema projectors, including SXRD panels and our own Advanced Reality Creation upscaling technology for fabulously detailed Full HD images.
