Here's the particulars of my situation:

I'm very close to purchasing a Sony 600 but am still slightly hesitant because of ambient light issues. This would be my first projector. I'm looking at a 120" Firehawk G4 16:9 screen.

I've got an approx 1000 sq ft game room (25 by 38 or so) that I use daily both at night and during the day.

My main uses, in order of importance:
1. Playing pool while watching Concerts (partial lights up over the pool table area)
2. Watching movies (all lights down)
3. Watching TV/Sports(partial lights up over the pool table area)

I included a day-time and night-time pic. In the second (night time) pic, you can see what I mean by partial lights up over the pool table area. It still seems fairly dark over the TV/projection screen area, so I assume I'll be fine at night even with partial lights up. (but correct be if I'm wrong there)

My main concern is during the day, trying to play pool and watch concerts. I'm going to put blackout blinds over all the windows but I'd prefer to not always have them all down. Do you guys think I'll be able to get away with only blacking out the first couple windows (by the TV/screen), or am I going to need to be prepared to always have all windows completely blacked out during the day?




Thanks for sharing your experience with the 600!

Thanks!
Parker

This space looks like it has nearly unlimited potential for a projection-based theater if the right steps are taken (Mike's advice above is great to get you started).  Ever thought of adding a wall between the rear of the entertainment space and the pool table?

That would make his main use kinda difficult.

Has anyone tried the new firmware 1.006 yet? according to sony:

This utility updates the projector system software and provides the following benefits:

3D Quality Improvements:
Half resolution of vertical lines in 3D
Improved crosstalk performance
Corrects trigger movement bug


Does it really improve crosstalk? how does the 1/2 vertical resolution look in 3D?

Have 1.006

It had half vertical resolution, and now it is full...

They are not good at wording.

bweissman is correct--I don't want to split the room in half with a wall. Since my primary use is watching concerts at approx 20ft from the screen, I'd much rather do that on a 120" screen than a 80" TV.

Also, would moving to a SONY 1100ES greatly improve the brightness? Or is it more of a marginal improvement?


Thanks guys!

No it wouldnt, calibreted the 1100 is the same or a Little higher then the 500/600 ( arround 1500 - 1700 lumens at max. ) , where you win with that upgrade is on higher CR, higher intrascene CR , better Black level /floor, less noise in low/high lamp mode, two pair off IR 3D glasses ( TDG-PJ1 ) and at last a even better, sharper lens.

You Loose ( going from the 600 to the 1100 ) the CRM and intern RF - transmitter for 3D RF glasses and a lot more off Money smile.gif

Will probably regret it in the long run, but sometimes life gets in the way. Lol.

Pbenda the sony 1100 is slightly brighter, not night and day difference. That's a lot of extra money though.

You could buy 10 lamps or more for the price difference between the two units.

Hi Mark,

   Thank you for your very valued input. The screen is already mounted. I met with the contractor today and we can make variability on the distance of the Sony projector to the screen. The room is roughly 25 long by 17' 3" wide. When completed the ceiling will be about 8' 6" with cherry coffers and a FOSI star ceiling. There are five windows that will have room darkening shades. All trim and doors will be cherry and the walls will probably be a medium to medium/dark brown or tan. How far from the screen should I mount the projector? I was planning on a Chief mount. If you have other suggestions please let me know. Once again thank you for your help. Best Regards, Greg

Getting ready to buy a VPL-VW600ES. I would also like to pick up the FMP-X1, although I'm not sure if the bundle with the Xperia table is worth it. Anybody have experience with the Android tablet app and know what it does besides allowing you to select and download 4K content? Also, can't you do the same thing through the FMP-X1 user interface?

Bottom line, is the Xperia worth it or another coffee table device? Very little specifics from Sony.

I have a vw500 on the way and wondering what the recommended settings are with these conditions?
Projector will be in a livingroom with white painted walls & ceiling.
My screen is a Multipix 1.3 gain (high contrast material) in 2.35:1 format and 115" in size. Distance between projector and screen is approx 3,6 m or 12 feet.

You can only use the Sony tablet to download the server app. you can't down load it to any other brand of tablet. If nothing more it becomes a dedicated remote for the tablet. You can of course use it like any other tablet

If i remember correctly, the FMP-X1's user interface doesn't display through Sony's 4k projector inputs.  only their 4k televisions can take advantage of the interface.  The tablet is more of a workaround birthed from this limitation, as opposed to an innovation in media control.

Sorry if I missed it, but do these Sony units have lens memories like the JVCs which work for a CIH set-up?

The minimum throw multiplier for the Sony is 1.31 times the screen width the minimum is used to get you the brightest picture). this I believe is with setting the Sony aspect to normal (1.78). I would mount the projector (front of lens) a little bit longer than 1.31 times the screen width of 120 inches or about 160 inches from the screen measured parallel to the floor.

I strongly recommend using a dedicated plate for the mount and not the universal, go with the RPM281 and not the RPMU..

Thanks for the response. I wasn't sure what the value of the Xperia tablet was, and I know you can only download the Sony 4K app from Google Play to this device. In the end, my cost is only $300 for this tablet so I get something to monitor sports scores or surf the web in the theater room.

As far as the FMP-X1, I was planning on routing it through a Marantz AV8801 and then to the projector. The 8801 has 4K switching for my DTV box and Oppo player. Hopefully the 4K will work with no issues.

Maybe but probably not. The Marantz would have to be compliant as an HDCP 2.2 repeater and it probably isn't.

So it sounds like I'll have to run two HDMI cables to the projector. One for switched 1080P content and another for 4K content directly from the FMP-X1? I ended up buying a really nice Phantom HDMI cable, 50 feet, 22 AWG, capable of speeds up to 13.8GB and 2160p.

That is correct. The Marantz 8801 cannot pass through the 4K from the Sony server.

Also only one of the two HDMI inputs on the 600ES is formatted to pair with the server.

Lastly, I believe you need to ensure that both the PJ and the 4k server are Ethernet connected so in addition to running dual High speed HDMI to the PJ u also need Ethernet. This later point might be a no brainer for most but it's worth mentioning.

Most of us are running a dedicated HDMI from the server to HDMI 2 on the projector. An Ethernet connection to the projector is not required for the server to operate with the projector. However an Ethernet line to the server is required for the server to operate. Also you must use HDMI 2 ON THE SERVER after you turn HDMI 2 on in the app to get sound out. thus you need an HDMI line from the server to your receiver for the sound.

Ethernet to the projector is used mainly for controlling the projector from things like a Crestron etc.

Hi Mark,

   Your input is Fantastic. Thank you. I found a Chief RPMA281, it that the same? Does it matter how far down I put the mount? It would be nice to keep it higher so it is not as noticeable but does that extra tilt mess with overall picture integrity?  Best, Greg

Has anyone been able to get the Sony 4k server to work over a powered Ethernet connection? If so, what make and model are you using?

Hi Mark,

   I am not sure of my cable lengths yet but I am probably 25 -30 feet from the projector. Is HDMI cabling as critical as source and amplifier cabling and where could I find it? Thanks, Greg

My long run HDMI cables are very old. The can pass 4K buy only with the aid of an extender. I have two buried in my ceiling. One sends up to 4K from my Lumagen to the projector and one carries the audio from the server to my receiver. My server sits on top of my inverted projector and I use a short 6 ft HDMI from it to HDMI 2 on the projector. Any high speed type II HDMI will work for 4K over short lengths.

Give Mike G at AV Science a call and he will fix you up with 4K rated cables using the Redmere chip for the long lengths. Be careful to have these cables pointed in the right direction, source to projector. A cheap HDMI cable tester is a good idea to ensure proper directionality and to ensure no damage after running them.

You listed 600, not 500. 600 comes with two pair, 500 does not.

My server sits on top of my inverted projector and I use a short 6 ft HDMI from it to HDMI 2 on the projector. Any high speed type II HDMI will work for 4K over short lengths.

Give Mike G at AV Science a call and he will fix you up with 4K rated cables using the Redmere chip for the long lengths. Be careful to have these cables pointed in the right direction, source to projector. A cheap HDMI cable tester is a good idea to ensure proper directionality and to ensure no damage after running them.

Just another point on HDMI Redmere active cables. There is a new version now becoming available with the new chip that supports the full 18 Gbps data rate of HDMI 2.0 (I've had a prototype since last Sept.). Even though the current Sony projector's only have 10.2 Gbps capable HDMI 2.0 inputs, if you are going to run a new Redmere cable for a ceiling mounted projector I suggest you go ahead and use one that supports the full bandwidth of HDMI 2.0, if you can find one long enough for your needs. Also a good quality high speed rated passive HDMI cable should be able to handle the 18 Gbps mode at lengths of 25 to 30 ft. This is possible because HDMI 2.0 uses a different signaling mode for data rates above 10.2 Gbps and this new signaling technique is said to enable the 18 Gbps data rate with existing high speed HDMI cables. I only recently became aware that a new signaling technique that is more bandwidth efficient and/or signal loss tolerant has been introduced with the HDMI 2.0 spec. to accommodate the higher data rates.
