Projector features SXRD panel technology

Sony has introduced a new 3D HD projector to the Japanese market. Branded the VPL-HW30ES, the projector provides 1,300 lumens brightness and comes with a dynamic contrast ratio of 70,000:1. The 240Hz projector uses Sony's proprietary three primary color SXRD (liquid crystal on silicon) shutter lenses and a 200-watt mercury bulb to project a full 3D image without necessarily hurting the final picture.

Inputs are strictly digital and include either DVI for computers or HDMI for other sources.

The VPL-HW30ES will be available in Japan late July. Its expected price in Japan will be 370,000 yen ($4,625). Sony has not revealed when the product might follow the 3D VW90ES into the US market. [via Akihabara News]
