For example, a 1080p 3 reflective LCOS chips with a proprietry chip design that is a breakthrough in LCOS performance.

If you have a 10 feet wide screen, what's the closest you can mount the sony 600es?

The specs doesn't show a 'throw ratio' instead shows a zoom of 2.06. How do you calculate a 'zoom'?

According to the 600ES operating manual, the minimum and maximum projection distances are expressed in relation to the diagonal screen dimension and there are different tables for the various aspect ratios. For example, for 1.78:1, the minimum distance (in inches) is expressed as L = 1.217856 × D – 1.7084. So, if your screen width is 120 inches (10'), the diagonal would be about 137" and the minimum distance would be about 166" or 13' 10". As a check I used the calculator on the projectorcentral site, and setting the diagonal to 137", it shows the minimum throw to be 13' 9".

I have a 126 x 54 inch screen. the 600es is about 14 ft away.
now that fills the area for a 16 x 9 projection
when i show cinemascope i zoom out and it fills the whole screen easily and beautifully.

Thanks for the news. Do you see a difference in latency/lag? The 600 has ~120 msecs when feeding 1080p and I would like to know if 2160p bypasses whatever internal component is there that adds up to the lag...

I can't say for sure how much, but there is a definate improvement for lag.

600ES Calibration

I posted something about the 600ES calibration is some thread but don't believe it was this one. I'm old = I forget....

The 600ES calibrates exceptionally well considering it only has a 2 point grayscale control. The Color Management System locks in the settings and is not much influenced by other settings changes. It takes longer to set up my equipment than to calibrate, something I've never seen before.

AVS has eliminated the possibility of posting pdf files due to a new limitation of 19.5 kb. Here are a some images. The full reports are accessible on the site in my signature. They are on the home page just under "HOME"

Does the 2160p @ 60 Hz resolution work in SLI mode?

From what I hear, it may be 4K, but it will be laser

And why on earth cant I write in here ( in explores ) anymore ? after the new and "improved" !!!?? " AVS
