Images so real you could touch them

Crisp, sharp, detailed Full HD 3D. The VPL-HW65ES is a fantastic option for any movie lover looking for an incredible cinematic experience at home, far beyond the reach of TV.

Advanced SXRD

panels Produce an ultra-smooth picture by minimising the space between pixels at a superfast speed. The VPL-HW65ES is synchronised with our 3D glasses for a jaw-dropping experience and minimal crosstalk.

High brightness and contrast ratio

With 1,800 ANSI lumens colour brightness and a dynamic contrast ratio of 120,000:1, it’s an an advanced Home Cinema experience that has to be seen to be believed. Advanced SXRD panels along with features like Reality Creation and Motionflow mean you’ll see your favourite films at their very best, in 3D and 2D.

New Reality Creation

Reproduce colours and textures that are lost when movies are packaged to disc, so you get much closer to the 1080p original.

Taking Home Cinema to the next level

Following the success of our VPL-HW55ES Home Cinema projector, we introduce our next generation VPL-HW65ES model, with even more great benefits. Featuring longer durability, versatile automation compatibility with IP control, built-in USB firmware updates, RF 3D transmitter and more.

Reality Creation 2 – Upscale your movies

Developed for our leading 4K Home Cinema projector range, our next generation 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, for even better upscaling.

1,800 lumens brightness and faithful colour reproduction

With an improved optical engine, the VPL-HW65ES is much brighter than our previous standard Home Cinema projectors. At 1,800 lumens, it produces clearer images and faithful colours, even in well lit rooms.

Superior Home Cinema for your living room

Conventional home cinema projectors sacrifice some colour accuracy by increasing greens to improve brightness. With Bright Cinema and Bright TV modes, the VPL-HW65ES retains true colour and contrast, even in a bright environment.

Dynamic contrast at 120,000:1

Optical engine improvements and advanced Iris 3 technology mean we’ve achieved an incredible dynamic contrast ratio of 120,000:1. It maximises blacks and whites without diminishing brightness so you won’t miss a detail, even in dark scenes.

USB updates

To get the best from your projector, the VPL-HW65ES has a USB port, to automatically receive the latest firmware updates, direct to the projector.

Contrast Enhancer and advanced Iris3

Automatically adjusts contrast for optimum viewing by analysing dark and light areas in every scene, without diminishing colour.

SXRD panel technology

Our SXRD panels reduce pixel gaps for super-sharp images. Because our 3D glasses have a synchronised shutter speed, you’ll enjoy incredible high-definition 3D with minimal crosstalk.

2D and 3D modes

The VPL-HW65ES automatically recognises 2D or 3D content and allows you to pre-select Standard, Dynamic, Cinema, Game and Photo modes.

Suitable for home automation

The VPL-HW65ES is compatible with many home automation systems, including Crestron Connected, AMX and Control4 SDDP. It has an RS232 interface, RJ45 control and IR-IN terminal.

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.

Longer durability

Enjoy the Home Cinema experience for longer than ever without interruptions and now with up to 6,000 hours lamp life, for perfect viewing.

Industry standard RF 3D compatible

A built-in RF transmitter synchronises with any RF 3D glasses for wider coverage, greater stability, and there’s no need for an external transmitter.

Wireless HDMI option

Keep things tidy and free yourself from cables with an optional wireless HDMI emitter/ receiver kit. The VPL-HW65ES will connect wirelessly to your Bluray Disc™ player, games console and more.


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.

Extremely low fan noise

Our advanced cooling system means fan noise is reduced to a whisper-quiet 22db.
