The smaller size screen will really help keep up the percieved contrast ratio. Higher contrast ratios with Digital (lamp) projectors are only achieved on the smaller screens. This is because the contrast ratio is affected by reflected light, and amount of light shone on a given sq. ft. of screen.
The higher the light ouptut on a given sq. ft. of screen (smaller will achieve this), the higher the contrast ratio. So, guys want the advertized spec of a given PJ, but they want it on humugous screens.
Not possible. It CAN be gotten closer to, by getting the right grey level and reflective gain characteristic in the screen design, but it will vary with -each- screen size chosen, even with one individual PJ model.
