An outstanding cinematic experience for home theatre applications
The VPL-HW40ES is a fantastic option for movie lovers who want an incredible cinematic experience at home, far
beyond the reach of TV. It is packed with professional technology, including advanced SXRD panels and Reality
Creation for an incredibly sharp, crystal clear picture. With 1700 lumens colour brightness, 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.

1700 lumens brightness with Contrast Enhancer function.
Reality Creation
Best Full HD picture possible.
Wide lens shift for flexible installation
+/–71% lens shift range allows more options for placement.
Extremely low fan noise
Quiet 21db noise with improved tone.
SXRD panel technology
With our SXRD panels technology for super-sharp images, you’ll enjoy incredible high-definition pictures at
1700 lumens brightness with faithful colour reproduction
Thanks to an improved optical engine, the VPL-HW40ES is much brighter than our previous standard home
cinema projectors. At 1700 lumens, it produces clearer images and faithful colours, even in well-lit rooms.
Reality Creation – Super Resolution function
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.
Bright Cinema and Bright TV modes
Conventional home cinema projectors sacrifice some colour accuracy by increasing greens to improve
brightness. With Bright Cinema and Bright TV modes, the VPL-HW40ES retains true colour and contrast, even
in a bright environment.
Contrast Enhancer
Automatically adjusts contrast for optimum viewing by analysing 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.
Wider lens shift range
A wider vertical range than our standard home cinema projectors allows more options for placement and
installation, without reducing image quality.
Extremely low fan noise
Our advanced cooling system means fan noise is reduced to a whisper-quiet 21db.
Perfect panel alignment
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.
Built-in IR 3D transmitter
No set-up time or cables, just synchronise the VPL-HW40ES with your IR 3D glasses via the built-in transmitter.
2D and 3D modes
The VPL-HW40ES automatically recognises 2D or 3D content and allows you to select various picture modes
to fit in your contents..
Gamma adjustment
Fine tune image brightness according to the light in the room or the on-screen picture. There are 7 modes to
select from.
Real Colour Processing (RCP Version 2)
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.
