be twice as bright as the W5000.
If it's twice as bright, that makes a lot of sense.
Can't really see what they're shooting for with this machine.
Anyway, I got this all from the following pages - where more pics can also be found - listed here via Babelfish translation links.
(Sorry, I guess I'm not allowed to post links so if you change the ******* to "t i n y u r l"(without the spaces obviously) they should work) - man their filter for detecting web pages is good! I'm impressed.
Why don't you just post the direct links.
Sorry guys, not going to happen, half the price + twice as bright, it will not have better contrast.
Not particularly, it sounds like they just took the W5000, put a bigger lamp in it, and cranked up the contrast rating way beyond reality like the LCD manufacturers seem to be doing. Basically it sounds like BenQ marketing's
response to the AE3000/6500.
And FWIW, my W5000 throws a great picture, I just have a feeling this will end up being very similar, except not quite as good since the brighter, bigger lamp will hurt CR/black level.[/quote]
like the AE3000?165w, 400lumens calibrated (700 at colder temp(not PC crap temp)) ? you're kidding
if this thing has 280w lamp, and say around 1500lumens at good colorimetry, and DC3 with say 10.000:1 on off and 550-600:1 ansi, this is a killer.
for guys with big screens (120-160") or brighter for white living rooms.
we do need punchier projectors. the race to constrast is not to be alone.
a balance must be found. 5-10000:1 500:1 ansi or more and 1200-1500lumens is the right track
