Hello I hope this is an interesting question for the folks in the forum used to mainly home theatre display questions.


I am designing an art installation for an artist who needs a high resolution, high brightness image. The image being projected is high contrast so I am looking for deep blacks while having high brightness. Money isn't really an object with the budget I am working with however the physically lighter and smaller the projector the better. In my research I've found the following projectors to fit the bill. Any suggestions would be great!


Projector Choices

Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5030UB
Panasonic PT-AE8000U
Sony VPLFH36

its a 4:3 screen size !? what format will the image have ? ( and is it video,film or still ? and what resolution )

how is the room where you project in ? ( will there be light in it ? and if yes how much ? , color off the wall, celling and floor ? ) distance you will Watch the image ?

yes a dedicated screen will be a distinct advantage ( wich model depends on the answers above - Craig will advise you

Only two off the projectors is very high resolution / UHD ( ultra high definition = 3830x2160 ) / 4K = 4096x2160 - with around 8.8 mil pixels on screen
thats the 500/600ES and the 1000ES ( both real 4K projectors with a 4096x2160 panel )

- brightness is allmost the same between them ( probely with a Little advantage to the 1000ES )

the contrast and intrascene contrast is better on the 1000ES,

the lens and the picture is sharpere on the 1000ES,

The 500/600ES will be physically lighter and smaller ( 14 kg versus 20 kg and the 1000ES 18cm deeper/ longer )

the 1000ES will be more silent, if thats a point ?

the 500/600ES will easyer be calibreted to 100% correct colors, if thats a point.

The 1000ES has the biggest colorspace - can show DCI and Adobe RGB color Space ( could be importent if it is a still Picture/ Photo, you will show ? )

The rest is 1920x1080 resolution projectors = around 2.2 mil pixels on screen ( the JVC do some tampering with them, but are actually still 2K - 1920x1080 - projectorerer , showing a kind of pseudo "4.4" mil pixels, IMO ). But off all the projectors the X900 will have the biggest dynamic range ( native contrast - on/off contrast ).


without knowing more for now - my best bet would clearly be the 1000/1100ES - but there can be importent Things in your setup, wich could change the advise on wich projector there will fit your needs best.
