how it perform against the christie hd 6k?
i use the christie hd6k with a isco3 optic in front and that kill the ansi
cr. as i have post since long time.
but for the test christie hd 6k vs barco cinema dp 2000 it was no problem
because i runn the hd6k without the isco3 lens.
here are some numbers that both pr
6800 centerlumen at 150 hours no iris
at normaly color 6300 centerlumen at d 65
cr. on off 2650:1 iris closed at 9 for normaly
color about 2440:1 at d 65
open the iris will decrease cr. to
2300:1 at normaly color and
2150:1 at d 65
ansi cr. 650:1 at normaly color
barco dp 2000
17200 centerlumen for 1920x1080
18370 centerlumen for 2048x1080
lamp on 50 hours(lost about 8% so the unit have new almost
numbers after color calibration
at cinema color
d 65 cost -11% light
2312:1 cinema color
2060:1 d65 color(reduce 11%)
ansi cr. about 750:1 have to measure again
i use a new lumagen radiance scaler and a spatz hdmi splitter to feed
the same signal into the units.
but as the barco have no adjustments at all even not cr. and brighness i need to
make 2 different banks in the lumagen to make it easy to switch between the 2 units.
as i can almost dimm down the barco to the light level the christie offers at max. light out
it was fast clear that
both units make a very good picture and there is not day and night differences
the most disappointment was to see that when i drive the barco at cinema prozessing that this
NOT reduce the fals contour bug as i hope for and as many people told me.
than the secound shock.
all fine details are filtered out!
so some test pattern show that drop in high freq. very good.
i talk with barco but there are some adjustment deep inside the unit
where you you can switch that filters off.
after i did it it shows the same sharp image with no decrease
in high freq. anymore.
the cr.on off number the barco have is not as good as the christie
can do at iris 9 but i never feel it looks wores.
i think the high ansi cr. make this difference or and the better cinema optics as well.
the barco picture looks a bit more sharp and a littel more 3d like.
i had about 40 ftl on the screen when i did the tests and i never fell
even in dark seq. like casino rojal chapter 5 that i miss some cr.
also it was interesting to see that even with the barco have about 15% more light on the screen
as the christie the cr. visual looks better with the barco!
i dirve the barco in cinema color as i like the bigger color bandwidth
and i use the lumagen do drop the 2.6 gamma that the dp 2000 use when
it works in cinema color.
the color calibration later not change it visible much so the pr
. was out of the box
good in color.
in summary i can say that both pr
. make a outstanding picture.
if you not count all the problems a cinema unit have see my fist post
and you not count the price i think beside the more lumens this barco have it is
a little bit better mostly thanks to the dc4 chips.
for me as i rate the new barco only as a 2d pr
. that show movies its a stepp up for me
as it shows a bit better picture and the lens i use works with the 2.35 format screen without any
isco 3 lens and thats also a improvment.
so all in all its the better pr
. for 2d movies but the differences are not that big.
