By way of background, I'm ready to redo my 8 year old room, originally set up for a 720p 3-chip. I changed to a DPI 260 Hilite HC, which is fine for now.
What i really want is constant height set-up with a 60" x 141" screen, which will fit my room. I currently have Stewart 1.3 Studiotek microperf, with a real gain of 1.1 or so I'm told.
I plan to change to a AT Stewart Ultramette 150 , to realize a real gain of about 1.3.
This is a long-winded way of saying that I want a lampless projector of at least a 1000 real lumens, with lens memory.
Does such a beast exist yet, or do I have to wait another year?

Thanks,
David Shapiro

not many home theatre quality lampless projectors on the market at all. i'd say you're best bet will be if something gets released 2014, and you have at least 10k floating around, MAYBE one will also have lens memory.

that being said, i don't see why you couldn't still use an anamorphic lens

There is a new iteration of DPI's Cine LED that claims to be 1000 lumens, no one seems to have done any measurements or reviews for it yet. Who knows, it may get close to 1000 lumens when calibrated, DPI tend to be reasonably good in their advertised specs

I think the cine led 1000 will be more like 750 or 800 lumens calibrated but well see

And look more like 1000 lumens when Helmholtz–Kohlrausch effect sets in.

Something else to consider, for the future. It is anticipated that at some point (probably within the next 6 to 18 months) Sony will offer a new 4K UHD projector that will use their Laser/phosphor light source that should offer 1000 lumens (or more) when calibrated. We might hear something about this next month at CEDIA and if not then perhaps next year.

Also Digital Projection is demo'ing their new Titan 1080p LED (pictured below) at CEDIA next month. I'm certain it costs $$$$.

I would wait if you want Lampless. Sony's laser tech will trickle down in to home theater, also JVC is working on Laser illumination.

Not really in a hurry. The DPI is excellent. I'm just trying to look ahead.

We will likely see laser/LED hybrids for HT applications in the not too distant future. They already exist in the business realm. But I don't think they will challenge the preeminence of a full-size 3-chip DLP.

You are probably right about the "awesomeness" of the price. $80K is mentioned...........

Wow...only 2000:1 contrast? Quite a price to pay for a little extra brightness. I see also that it's 16:10...not really a cinema aspect. I wonder how they are configuring the chips and the LEDs.
