In a few more days, JVC will be releasing their user dowmloadable revised CMS (color management system). This will enable the HD750\\RS20 to achieve perfect colorimetry.
Assuming setting the manual iris on the JVC for equivalent light out put of the 8150 or close to it, the on\\off CR of the two machines will be close. The 8150 however uses a DI to achieve what the RS20 achieves natively.
The 8150 will have a significantly higher ANSI CR than the JVC, will have no misconvergence being a single chip machine, has a better processor, and a somewhat sharper lens.
They are both good machines. No possibility or seeing rainbows with the JVC because no color wheel and no DI artifacts. If your seing a DI artifact on occasion is going to spoil your use of a machine, don`t buy a DI machine. Personally I think all machines should provide the option of switching on a well implemented DI. Occasional artifacts be damned, the benefits of a DI are substantial.
Face it. The on\\off of all bulb projectors suck. 30,000 is no great shakes. We have a long long way to go in the on\\off CR department.It would be nice to have 30,000 on\\off native, increasable to say 75,000 by a DI. And even that would not be high enough.
