Here are a few pictures. I unfortunately have to run in 15 min for yet another thanksgiving turkey feast so I'll have to finish up later.
First off here are the basics.
Infocus 333 - 3 chip DLP 1824 hours on the bulb (about 300 past when the bulb usually blows up so lets just say it's living on borrowed time or perhaps the bulbs are finally getting 2000 hours - most blow between 1500 and 1600 in my experience and this is the 7 or 8th bulb since I bought the PJ new.
The Infocus was recently ISF certified / calibrated as mentioned a few posts above.
The JVC RS20 from Greg - Bulb virtually brand new - 67 ~ 70 hours on the bulb Greg really hasn't spent much time with it as they are still building his HT. The JVC was / is not calibrated - but honestly it is exceptional out of the box IMO still needs to be said.
I was originally going to do some measurements but time got away from us and due to the fact Greg still had a bit of drive and it was late I just lent him my light meter so he can take some measurement (lumens/ ansi etc..) and let me know what he finds. After which I'll redo my Infocus when I swap out the bulb so I'm using a bulb with less then 100 hours as well (so it's more apples to apples).
Ok on to the pictures.
Hours on the 333 - The hours on the JVC didn't turn out strangely but I'm sure it was 67 at the start and maybe 70 after all the back and forth testing.
All scenes were run through as follows.
Video only as this really has nothing to do with audio.
Zektor Mas 7.1 switcher which was processing / passing signals from
PS3 - games and blue ray tested
LG Super BLu - DVD / Blu Ray and HD- DVD tested
Xbox Elite - HDMI 1080P - games tested on Infocus 333
Xbox Pro - Component 1080P - games tested on the JVC RS20
All signals with the exception of the Xbox pro on COD 4 were through the same equipment using HDMI (and the M1-DA in the case of the Infocus)
Camera Used was a 10.1 MP Canon SLR on a tripod set to night / no flash.
*the camera took much faster pictures of the 333 then the JVC due to light output was our impression after doing the back and forths - especially in the night scenes.
First set - looking to compare difficult dark scenes and I picked this one from Death Race. Shown on Blu-Ray on the LG Super Blue. (note all JVC pictures are at 1080p/24 (for movies) or 1080p/60 (for games) and the Infocus 333 is 720p/24 (for movies) and 1280 x 1024/60 (for games) unless otherwise noted)
1st pic is the JVC RS-20 showing the impressive blacks and contrast that it's known for:
Same scene on the 333 - to show how the 333 - 3 chip is holding up been 3 or so years older.
FROM BBC's Universe Blu-ray set as shown on the PS3. Again looking at dark shots with some variety of light to test.
Then next we have the 333 showing Saturn shot # 2
First up on the JVC showing the same Saturn shot # 1
Now we have the JVC showing Saturn shot # 2
Well that is all I have for time for now - I'll try and get back to show some of the games / stills etc... that we took as well and of course once Greg does some measurements and I swap a bulb we can put some hard numbers to these pictures as well.
more to come
