My projector did not come with the composite board installed, hence I had to make the jump to a video processor after buying. I barely knew what I was getting myself into, but soon figured it out, with thanks to certain in depth and well known CRT projector website. I know that Curt, wherever he may be hovering on these messageboards
suggested the Moome card to me as well. I know that newer versions have been coming out occasionally, so perhaps I'll nab one when the time is right. Still, there are few things I would like to clarify:
1.) What is the advantage of an internal card versus an external HDMI to RGBHV converter like HD-Fury? The external is obviously cheaper, but
how great is the difference really between these two?
2.) In order to take advantage of an HD signal on a CRT projector, shouldn't the neck boards, anamorphic, and related modifications be done prior?
3.) My current system is set up in a 4:3 aspect ratio to fit most of my analog sources. The raster had to be carefully fit to compensate for slight burn on the blue and green tubes. It killed me when I realized this
, but not planning an a retube just yet. Seeing as most HD sources are 16:9 though, wouldn't it be difficult to set this up without the burn it being noticable?
4.) Do you really think older films would not look as great? Surely a 70MM print (rare as they are) would look fantastic
in High Definition, granted the studio did not cheap out on the telecine and restoration.
Sorry for the rant, just wanted to ask some things I'd been pondering on.
