Sony VPL-HW30AES, an affordable 3D home projector
SONY is launching the affordable VPL-HW30ES this year, featuring 240Hz SXRD tech. Europe and Japan will have it in July (around 3,600 € - 400,000 yen - 4,000 $ ). contrast ratio: 70,000:1, brightness1,300 lumens.
The base model VPL-HW30ES (3699$) is not natively 3D-enabled but has the 3D accessories sold separely; 3D compatibility is achieved with Sony's new lighter active shutter 3D glasses (TDG-PJ1 - 129$ per pair) and an add-on IR sync device (TMR-PJ1 - 79$). The sligthly more expensive VPL-HW30AES model includes the IR device and two pairs of active glasses. Exact price not known yet for this version. See it on AudioVideoHD (in French).
