That's how you measure the black level though.... The LED modulation still works when there are bright objects present in the image too. So enabling the "dynamic iris" is just like using a real DI on a Sony or Epson or whatever model you can think of that has a DI.
Yes, JVC projectors have great native contrast, I'm not contesting that. Black levels are actually blacker on these new LED models (considering they can basically shut off). Like I said earlier, natively it's no contest, but considering that basically any review you read these days measures black levels and contrast with DI's on and manual iris's closed to an extent (to get an appropriate foot lambert level) using the LED modulation and comparing it to other projectors is perfectly valid.
