SXRD Technology: SXRD is a display technology developed by television
engineers at Sony to meet and exceed the demands of a High Definition image at
its full 1080 line resolution. It is a 1920 x 1080p panel characterized by
several key benefits such as full HD resolution, smooth film-like image with
minimal screen door effects, high response times (2.5ms rise and fall), high
contrast ratio with wire grid polarizers and high contrast plate and accurate
color rendition. The images from the three SXRD 0.61" panels (2,073,600 pixels
each) are superimposed over each other, making the projector's native resolution
1920 x 1080, a total of 6,220,800 pixels.
High Brightness & Contrast: The video projector's Advanced Dynamic IRIS provides up to a
120,000:1 contrast ratio by optimizing both dark and bright scenes to produce
deep black levels with incredible detail. The Sony VPL-HW65ES video projector
outputs 1800 lumens (ANSI rating) for a bright and dynamic picture.
215W High Pressure Lamp w/ Dynamic Lamp Control: The Sony VPL-HW65ES
employs a 215W high pressure. Enjoy up to 6000 hours of watch time (in low
mode) from this long-lasting mercury lamp. This means fewer lamp swaps, simpler
maintenance, and lower running costs. Sony's dynamic lamp control technology
perfectly establishes vibrant,
cinema-quality brightness levels on your favorite 2D or 3D movies and TV shows.
Note: When replacing the lamp, use Sony's LMP-H210
Projector Lamp (sold separately). The air filter is supplied with the
