David - Hi, that was HDR 2020. I ran out of time to swap over to SDR 2020 but will update the thread once I have time with it over the next few days.
My dune HD 4K Solo arrived today, I am going to be busy in the HT for a few days.
Watching Deadpool last night and seeing how remarkable it looked on the RS600 cements my decision to pass along my VW1100, I don't miss it for a minute.
it's a shame, this was supposed to be their game changing 4K projector and it was just too early for it's time, major changes at Sony for the people who were supporting this project (let's be blunt, they were all let go..) and basically became abandonware once the updated mid-level models were released. They also abandoned the development of the media players (1st and 2nd gen) and then went on to release a 'new' UHD streaming service but only for their TV's. You have to wonder who makes these decisions at Sony.
on the flip side - JVC had done quite a bit in comparison to support the wild west of HDR. Firmware update for compatibility with the Samsung Player, 2020 profiles, general guidelines for HDR settings, etc. Not perfect but a heck of a first attempt and certainly more than Sony or Epson has done so far in the arena.
For Epson, I expect we'll see the Epson 11K (sounds good why not) with full 18GB HDMI + HDR + WCG support and maybe some fire sales of left over LS10K stock in the fall. Sony - maybe a refresh of the 665, it's hard to say since the 500/600 carried over for 2 years. I think JVC will carry over for 2017.
