Wow, I didn't mean to open such a can of worms about the JVC lamps - sorry.

As far as being on topic, so far in this thread I have read about first hand demonstrations of the:

1. Two Sony 4k projectors
2. Two JVC e-shift projectors
3. Three DPI DLP projectors
4. A little blurb about the Epson 6030

What happened to these other companies:

1. Sharp
2. InFocus
3. Panasonic
4. Mitsubishi
5. Benq
6. Runco
7. Sim2

Did all of these companies drop out of the home theater projection market or did they simply not attend this year's CEDIA?

Does anyone have any first hand information to report on any of the lower priced models from Sony and JVC? The only comments I have read have been in passing saying that they were "nice". I also read Craig's report that the DI on the JVC was very quiet and showed no detrimental effects, but there was no mention as to how much of a visual improvement the DI offered over the native contrast. Did JVC take the time to demonstrate the effectiveness of their new DI? Did anyone ask to see the same scenes with DI on and DI off?

The reports I have read this year are very scary - It seems like the HT projector market is turning into a 3 or 4 horse race - Sony vs. JVC for 4k, and for the low end, Epson - and possibly DPI on the high end. The choices are becoming very limited, and this is bad news for all of us...frown.gif

Only the Sony VPL-vw600ES was demoed by Sony at Cedia.

Sim2 skipped the show holding localized dealer shows on the east and west coasts. Saved a bundle that way.

Runco was at the show but you had to be a Runco dealer to get in.


BenQ doesn't show at Cedia.


Infocus is out of the HT projector business. The other companies still have HT projectors but had nothing new to offer this year and didn't show any projectors.

The number of players in the $3K and above appear to be drastically decreasing.

I don't think InFocus even makes home theater projectors anymore. SIM2 was not at Cedia. There were Runco's demo'd, but we aren't Runco dealers, so i didn't pay much attention to them.

1. Sharp
2. InFocus
3. Panasonic
4. Mitsubishi
5. Benq

I don't believe any of those companies were at Cedia showing home theater projectors.

Actually it was useful for me, as I wasn't aware that the new lamps dim slower on top of not failing; gives me more reason to consider an upgrade.

So thanks.
