I was using a VW600 on a 9' wide 0.8 gain scope screen. Used the projector in low lamp. A 10' wide 1.0 gain screen would give the same brightness as my 9' wide 0.8 gain screen. You would be fine.

Read a rumour in the 5000ES thread about an upcoming VW1100 replacement, said to be a smaller version of the 5000ES with same type of chassis and lower lumens. Just curious what kind of price range you think this will end up in?

And when is it likely to be presented, CEDIA or later?

It would be presented at CEDIA, if a replacement is coming out.

There's also a chance of a debut at IFA Berlin, just prior to CEDIA as well. I'm a tad skeptical about such a beast coming out this year, I think it would potentially compete too heavily with the 5000 and prevent buyers(who could afford one) stepping up to a 5000 if it was indeed a laser based 1100 replacement.

While i agree with you that it would be a tuff competitor with the 5000, i also think that it is in their interest to present something more in the lower price range and with full support for the UHD spec if they still want to compete in this area. The 5000 is out of most peoples budgets so they really need to show a replacement for the 1100 or the 665 this year IMO if they still want to compete.

Personally , i can wait for a laser light source but instead i would settle with a lamp based VW1200 with 18Gbps inputs, HDR10, possibly also DV and emulated BT.2020. And still to a resonable price similar to the VW1100.
This would get me really excited!

It would also need increased light output in my opinion.

They would also need to re-engineer the P3 filter to reduce light loss.

while there is a wish list forming, increase native as well and make sure it's stays there.

I don't think it's going to happen this year for the reasons already discussed. It puts too much pressure on their 5000ES, people waiting to get one who've preordered and those thinking about ordering one. Considering the 5000ES shares many of the same important things the 1100ES has (same lens and panels) I don't see how a "1200ES" with those same things fits in to their lineup right now. What would be the defining differences between these two units? Lumen output is about the only thing I can think of that would differentiate them. I think most would opt for the cheaper unit considering HDR, even with the lumen output capabilities of the 5000ES, is a little lack luster. Also because most potential 5000ES owners don't have a screen large enough to take advantage of the lumen output capabilities that it's capable of with SDR content. It would be a bad move for Sony. A loss of profit by selling a similar unit for half the cost wouldn't be a good move. Keep the 5000ES and make more money. Most people who can afford $30000 can afford $60000.

As Mike wrote.. it would need a lot of lumens to be able to see the HDR's prowess. As I was informed here on the forum, lamp based projectors cannot come close to displaying dci/2020 colors.. As wishful thinking, yours is a great idea..
Could an LED based projector reproduce DCI/2020? Do LED's give out high lumens as compared to lamp based of a similar size projector?

LED's in projectors have hit a brick wall for years now. It's unlikely any manufacturer will use them going forward now that the laser substitute is out there. And even those are now stuck between affordable (Epson LS10K and ~1100 lumens output, not bad light output but not great either) vs. the much brighter + expensive 5000ES + upcoming JVC 4K laser. Maybe we'll get some mid range in the 2000+ lumen range in the next 2-3 years.

I am not a big fan of 3D films but I've got a few that I cherish, mostly for their 'historical' value. One example would be Alfred Hitchcock's "Dial M for Murder".

What 3D glasses are you using with the VPL-VW1100ES? I find the IR glasses which came with the projector rather heavy and they end up hurting my nose - and everyone else's who've tried them - after less than one hour of wearing them. Are there any othe lighter / more comfortable alternatives which you would recommend?

Could an RF adapter be used with this PJ to use RF glasses instead of IR ones? What would you recommend?

Thank you.

That's been pretty well discussed here in the thread. Myself and others have been able to fashion RF adapters from the transmitters made by Xpand and changing to the mini-din plug to the compatible RJ-45 connector: http://www.cnet.com/products/xpand-a...3d-emitter-rf/ . Search around and you'll pretty quickly come across the threads with detailed instructions on how to do this.
