Hi Don,
a G11 after dilard calibration would have roughly around 700-750 lumens of output(from the info I can find). This will reduce the ft/lamberts on a GrayHawk for a screen size of 135" diagonal to less than a desirable level, even in a dark, light-controlled room at a throw of 18'-20'.
Would a FireHawk be a better solution in such a situation?
Would you have -any plans to test/have tested in lab- any Dila projectors on the FireHawk.
Thanks in advance for any information/advice,
Sanjiv

I second the motion. I also have a G11 (no panamorph or isco lens) and want to put a 104" wide microperfed screen in but am worried about getting too low on the ft-lamberts. I really like a bright image so am torn between the benefits of the gray screen and the lesser brightness of the .95 gain screen. The firehawk sounds to be just what the doctor ordered.

Dear Sanjiv and Dieter,

The FireHawk was designed to to get the benefits of a gray screen for lower lumen output digital projectors. For the most part, single chip DLP projectors fall into this category. But there is no reason why an LCD or DILA projector would not also benefit from the higher gain in cases where the projector is asked to make an extremely large image or the PJ has been calibrated to maximize contrast at the expense of lumens. Yes..we do see some cross over with the FireHawk.

Regards,

Don

Thank you Don,
it feels great to know that I can have my calibration and see it too! (on a biig screen)
Now if only you needed a D-ILA volunteer for the FireH :D
Regards,
Sanjiv

I wonder if this might be a good solution for a Sony 11HT using "cinema mode." which is 750 lumens? Any suggestions?

When will thes be available?

TIA.
