I asked a question based on your quote of "the new de facto standard" of 20 to 30fl.
I also said that from what I have read movie theatres are supposed to calibrated to 16fl (with no film in the gate) according to SMPTE. You replied that people only quote that number because they have not looked deeply enough and that it's based on equipment limitations, right?
If you say that SMPTE only based the 16fl number on equipment limitations then how else is a person supposed to read your comments other than that everything pre-digital has been sub standard?
I'm sorry if you don't like your statement's being questioned but there is no need to become so defensive. I am just trying to understand the reasons for people all of a sudden wanting to create a new standard when most people never thought the old one was broke including as far as I know SMPTE (at least for "film" projection).
And before I and only I am accused of taking this thread off topic I would like to say that I believe my comment's are very much on topic as this thread is about a projector that cannot achieve 20 to 30 fl on a screen size that most people would want to pair this unit with.
I am just trying to undertand why a person would need (not want, that is a seperate issue) a brighter projector than the new JVC 950 or any other projector of similar specs for an average screen size.
Let's all play nice, it's a big enough sand box for everyone to play in!
