Well...I'm trying to follow all the "details" in the HD Fury Thread and the Posts by Manni01 as he too is looking for a solution like me .
I've not quite finished the entire Thread but this Post caught my eye today...
"At the moment, I have a JVC X500 projector, which doesn't have native 4K panels even if it accepts native 4K content and displays it in faux-K using e-shift. As it doesn't support HDCP 2.2 or HDR either, I would like to get the 4K24 HDR 10bits BT2020 4:2:0 (or 4:4:4 if chroma is already upscaled by the player, such as the Samsung) from a UHD Bluray player and convert it to 2K24 8bits 4:4:4 SDR for my 1080p display. This would allow to make use of the fact that the chroma resolution in UHD Bluray 4:2:0 content is 1080p, hence this would give us an excellent 1080p 4:4:4 quality in 8bits, which should be fine with a good dithering as we're not using BT2020 or PQ Gamma. On a screen size such as mine (88" diag 16/9), even from my fairly close 1.2SW sitting distance, I would much rather take a native 1080p 4:4:4 content, even at 8bits (not even using eshift to upscale it) than a 4K resolution than needs eshift to work, causing a loss of sharpness on my non native 4K display."
This was a Post by Manni01 to HDFury for suggestions to the HD Fury Integral Product . This is why I'm a little excited by this . The Company is taking all kinds of suggestions and implementing them on a weekly basis . They are also intending on building a Scaler into the Integral at a future date .
I'm just looking for a solution to not being able to Upgrade without winning the Lottery .
This Tech looks promising .
