One example I've seen is claiming that people should want 4 million mirrors on their DLP chips because resolution is so important, but if they care about contrast ratio at all they wouldn't want 8 million mirrors. Kind of ignores that much of the reason these XPR projectors have such poor contrast ratio is because they went with 4 million mirrors (which helped their marketing claims) instead of 2 million mirrors, when single chip DLP would have already been pretty sharp and detailed with 1080p+eShift, especially since the higher on/off CR would have helped the perception of high resolution for some images.
Another example is one claim that a person is trying to emulate commercial theaters that have about 2000:1 on/off CR, but now claims that if a projector actually had 2000:1 native on/off CR they would also want a good dynamic system that they could enable. If a person was actually trying to emulate 2000:1 on/off CR projectors that have no dynamic system they most definitely would not enable any dynamic system on a 2000:1 native on/off CR projector, no matter how good it was. Fortunately, there are only a limited number of posters who will post pretty much anything to help their "team".
Hopefully we won't need to start calling this the AVMarketing forum.
Interesting, can't disagree. The short time I have been on here it really should be called the JVC forum not the AVScience forum. If someone doesn't like the JVC then they are trashed. Picture can be as much taste as it is science just like sound. I like a lot of bass and my wife hates it. Take the LG OLED vs the Sony QLED. Sony has a better looking picture but spec wise it is not as good as the LG.
I love how all of these people spout off specs but ignore how the specs react in the environment and other factors. I guarantee my projector looks different in my theater than others with the same projector. My Stewart Screen. My Dark walls on and on. It is a package and many people ignore that.
