Sit back, relax… and immerse yourself in a new world of portable entertainment. Whether you’re a movie lover or a dedicated gamer, the new HMZ-T3W Head Mounted Display brings your favorite content to life with awesome, super-size HD images and wireless freedom.

Slip on the light, easy-to-wear headset and enjoy the show. It’s like taking your own super-size cinema with you on holiday or while you’re travelling. Hook up your console, PC, mobile device or smartphone and enjoy a jaw-dropping view of movies, games and apps with a massive virtual screen size that’s equivalent to viewing a 750-inch cinema screen from 20m away.

You don’t even need to plug the head mounted display into an AC power socket. The handy, compact battery box keeps the HMZ-T3W powered for hours as you enjoy videos or games on the move. You can even charge the battery of your smartphone or tablet as you watch and play when connected via MHL.

From lengthy gaming sessions to movie marathons, you’ll be absorbed in immersive entertainment with supreme comfort. The ergonomically-styled head mounted unit features flexible headbands that adjust instantly to fit anyone. There’s a large, cushioned head pad to reduce wear pressure, plus easy lens adjustment for relaxed viewing.

Don’t let cables tie you down. The HMZ-T3W liberates you from your PC or AV rack, letting you relax in a favourite couch or move around without getting tangled up. New WirelessHD™ lets you enjoy personal entertainment anywhere in the room with uncompressed HD video with near-zero latency and crisp digital sound.

Thrilling 7.1 channel virtual sound adds an extra dimension of realism to movies and games. Listen through the supplied 16mm driver in-ear phones, or team the HMZ-T3W with your own headphones. Sony’s Virtual Surround Technology creates an impressive 360° soundstage with dialogue, music and effects placed accurately around you. It’s like being in the cinema – or right in the action as battle rages around you.

Because you only play to win: the HMZ-T3W keeps you right in the game with speedy responses and no annoying on-screen image lag. Touch a button to instantly boost contrast and enhance shape details – you’ll relish the competitive edge in dimly-lit scenes where danger’s always lurking. It’s the perfect way to enjoy all your favourite titles, from fast paced shoot-em-ups to car rallies. You won’t have to fumble for the right keys in mid-game. The ergonomic visor-style headset gives an unobstructed ‘look-down’ view of your PC’s keyboard and mouse while you play.

The new HMZ-T3W Head Mounted Display from Sony is available in Europe from November 2013.
