What's up, VW95/RS55 owners?
Is no one able/equipped to measure this very important attribute?
Due to my concern:
All these nice datasheet maximum contrast ratio specifications are not really saying all about of the effectiv quality of a projector, cause they only specify, how good a projector can be in extremly
And such ultimate situations are only test patterns 0 IRE, and 100 IRE; so concerning movies, to me it's more essential, how good a projector can display pictures with many
dark/bright (high contrasted) areas in the same frame, as usual.
I have no benefit of great On/Off CR specifications, if optical reflections or other technical issues inside the PJ are leading to brighten up dark pixels at the screen. We don't looking 0 IRE / 100 IRE test patterns, rather then movies whose nature is a very dynamic in-picture contrast behaviour; so for me these great looking "maximum" specifications are only half the truth (not to say "for the birds", cause VW95/RS55 can be "bright" and "dark" enough).
So this thread is addressed to all those, equipped with measurement and nearly a "bat cave" - please post your ANSI measurings of a 16 field checkerboard (can be found on the AVS HD
testpattern disk). At least please do one reading of the center black/white fields.
For a good average between a model, "the more, the merrier". You just should mention about
- lamp level
- IRIS level (VW95: would be for interest, if dynamic/fix differs ...)
- REC 709 calibrated or not
- gain of your screen
Thank's a lot!
