Had a closer look at a Barco 909 reality and tested this beside a JVC RS20. Then switching images. The bulb on the jvc about 1700 hours and about 99% brightness match in 100% ire on both.
Screen 120 inc white.
And tested on HD material pictures and film.
The RS 20 is now and old and outdated PJ that the new models are much better on absolutely everything. And I mean much.
But wanted to see for my selves without judging anything again.
And if someone else, say something else THEY DO NOT WANNA SEE IT.
And no one can tell me that a 909 looks better in ANY possible way than a jvcrs20 on HD material/ blueray. Of cores closing down to zero lumen the Barco was better in some extreme dark scenes, but deeper dark black on the JVC and much better black when just some light on screen.
Also shadow detail better on the jvc
But in any other picture on screen the jvc rs20 was MUCH better.
I would use, in an other league. And that RS20 is OLD.
So like this thread CRT still bomb with HD. We'll for ME definitely NOT. You see it so clearly that why bother backing it up.
standing close to the screen with this Jvc rs20 you see pixels. But not even close to see it in sitting distance. So a nature like picture is far a CRT comparing it side by side. If you say yes to this you have not seen HD. The JVC RS 20 had some poor motion in film compared to the CRT. But using 60hz looked better but still some better on the CRT after what I saw. what I have seen before the biggest problem on OLD jvc models are motion in my eyes. That is so much better on the new models x500-x700.
I tested a sony Vw90 against a cine9 and motion about the same in 72hz. Then I could not say who was the best on motion, Then in film material blueray. And also that test or what it was just the same like here,in all factors. Even the CRT guys saw this.
On test patterns, like motion resolution a CRT will win big time.
But not visible in film,like I see it.
The HD material gets so extremely soft compared on the 909.
But if you watch the 909 from the start your eyes get used to the softness and you accept it.
1080P works well on the CRT 909. But not even close like a god digital shows 1080P today.
End of story.
