Yes, I'm guessing you may be right. Using the Omega lenses I would think you'd be better to err on the side of monster light.
The JVCs have a natural advantage when used with a polarized setup, because the prepolarised light output means very little light loss for that type of system, resulting in great final output intensity.
However, a system like Dolby/Infitec or Panavision/Omega, will treat all light output the same, whether polarized or not, it will chop out any color bandwidth that is not part of the pass thru for each eye.
This shouldn't be a problem at all if you have enough light, or if your screen is not too large.
I should know the extent once I get my set to play with. I've got a pretty large screen. The Dolby setup wasn't too dark when I tried it, but it wasn't as bright as the polarized setup.
But the Omega seems like it should have really good extinction ratios and less crosstalk, so I'm keen to see. Will let you know for sure how I think it can be best used.
