Just wondering, if you were to shrink the image size when using the Sony so you get similar brightness to your Barco and sat closer so the viewing angle is similar, does the extra CR(5x?) from the Sony make a difference to your eyes?
as the stack of 2 vw 1000 are not works to increase the brightness i try
to get used to the light level one vw 1000 give me on the big screen.
i can have about 7.5 ftl at the full wide and around 11 ftl on flat format.
as you understand coming from 70 ftl. its a bit hard for me
yesterday i watch a first time tv show in flat 11 ftl and me and my family
like it a lot.
2.35 format at only 7.5 ftl is hard for me.
on the other hand i watch in the past with the sony qualia pr
. at around
5.5 ftl and this time i like it this way.
i not did a direct compare between the dlp and the sony but later i will do it.
yes i like the about 6 to 7 times more on off cr. ratio the sony offers compare to the barco 4k but on top of this
the sony have this adaptive iris that further increase this.
from what i saw i think the sony in 2d with the reality creation offers excluding the lumen the better picture over all for 2d 2k material.
thats why i may use it only for 2d.
i expect when i test 4k stills between the sony and the barco that the barco
dlp may will have some small advantage in high freq. as lcos drops there and dlp not.
but lets see......
i hope i can adjust to the low lumen level the sony have compare to the
big barco and watch all the 2d tv and bds content with it.
if i can adjust i will use the big barcos only for 3d.
please note that the sony did not bad 3d it did the best 3d i saw so far from a consumer pr
.but there i have my other system with the 2 barcos that i will use in future.
if this will be true i can modify my barcos with the infitec 3d filter system
inside the pr
. itself and this will increase 3d performance.
for all that have a screen in the till to 5 meter range i think the sony is the
one of the best pr
. you can buy today.
as i not see any 4k consumer dlp anytime soon 2k dlps will have a hard time
from now on.
its hard for me to see any disadvantages from the vw 1000.
may shading is one of them as most lcos show some shading but on the other hand i saw also 3 chip dlps that have not a perfect shading.
but i guess that is very depends on the production variations.
at a color movie no way to see it at a black and white movie if you got a bad
one may you can see it.
yesterday my friend got his vw 1000 (seems he is beside me the first in germany) and he like it a lot.
as he had in the past a christie hd6k (1920x1080 3chip dlp with xenon lamp)
lets see if he like the sony but i am sure after i talk with him yesterday
i can say yes.
