What values do you use for RC parameters - Resolution and Noise Filtering - on the VPL-VW1100ES when watching Blu-ray films at 1080/24p?

My preferences have alternated between Reference Mode,Cinema 1 Mode and Digital Cinema over the last 4-5 years.
I make no adjustments to either Resolution or Noise Filtering in any of these modes.I leave them at their default settings.

But the modes depend on the content being watched.
For older films with higher grain densities I prefer to use Cinema 1 or Digital Cinema.
For newer flicks with pristine images that are grain free(but still contain some digital noise!) I prefer to use Reference Mode.
If the posterization (in reference mode) becomes prevalent then I switch back to Cinema 1(or Digital Cinema Mode).

I once did try setting Noise Reduction to High (or Medium)in Reference mode but the image became "unnaturally" smooth.

Resolution : 2 ( just sharpnens the Picture a little, without adding any ringing or other strange Things to the Picture )

I just changed lamp in my 1100 after 2501 hours ! ( Sony promise UP to 2500 hours in eco mode, which I use ) cant complain about that , actully Im impressed
( it still did work fine, but the projector started display" change the lamp" at 2495 hours, and I didnt want it to explode )


With a new lamp ( 5 hour ) I measure in high mode / iris off / clip at 235 / 280 cm wide / 126" dia 16:9 - about 275 lux / 25 Fc ( with 93" - 456 lux / 42 Fc )
the old with 2501 hours on: - about 225 lux / 20 Fc ( with 93" - 370 lux / 34 Fc )


So over the hole life spand of the lamp, I only lost about 18 - 19% light output ! sounds very good, but a litte strange it not has lost more !? ( both lamps are orginal lamps bought from Sony ), but maybe the first lamp was a "better" one from start - I didnt measure it at new or cant remember it - think, I slight remember measure something over 500 lux in the 93" size at that time , but im not sure ).

Agreed.

Reference Mode is less conducive to any sharpening in my opinion though.
In Cinema 1 or Digital Cinema Mode you can increase the Resolution by a click or two without any unwanted artifacts creeping in.

Thanks. That's what I use, too. I thought maybe it's me but anything above 2 for the resolution seems too aggressive.

Wow, that's nice. Was there a very noticeable / visible difference (i.e. much brighter image) after you switched the lamp?

Did you use the old lamp on High or on Low? Mine is approaching 1,000 hours exclusively on Low.

Low.
And after the change, the image was visible brigther, but not "very"


If I hadnt been afraid for the lamp should eventuel explode, I would just have keep going on with the old lamp - I didnt change it, because off to dim a Picture - only to be safe


Wit a Little luck, you will have over the double hours to go with your lamp - it nice that it can make light output enought for a Picture at 126" dia in low mode - how big are yours ?

Nice. I thought the specs called for 2,500-3,000 hours in High mode, but I've never seen these published officially by Sony. And I might be wrong. The life of a lamp is assumed to have ended when the light output reaches 50%, so your lamp should still have pretty much life remaining. Cases of lamps exploding are extrememly rare.

I project on a 133 inch diagonal 16:9 screen. It's a Da-Lite Tensioned Contour Electrol HD Progressive 1.3 screen.

Are now using the new lamp, or are you back to the old one? Some people use a new lamp over its 90-day warranty period, then revert to the old lamp and keep the new lamp as spare / backup.
