Hi everyone. Art here, at Projector Reviews. I'm wondering if any of you with a calibrated RS49/4910/X500R, or even one of the higher end models, that happens to live in Orange County CA, or nearby, would be interested in hauling it down here for a shoot out against an Epson LS10000
I reviewed the RS4910 a year ago, and thought it was great. But I wasn't that dazzled by e-shift's perceived sharpness.
As a result, I'd really like to put the JVC and Epson up against each other, on all the usual content. I already know the JVC beats the Epson at black level performance, and that both calibrate really well, but it would still be fun for them to do battle.
Still, ultimately it's the perceived sharpness that would be my "focus." I've always felt that if anyone needed true 4K it was us large screen folks. (what a waste on a 50" LCDTV). Sadly, until TI, or Epson, decide to finally break down and offer 4K chips, pixel shifting and enhanced sharpness techniques looks like pixel shifting is the only game in town under $10,000 with any kind of black level performance that provides something resembling 4K sharpness.
So, anyone close by and really to kill an afternoon or evening, playing with the gear? BTW I have a Sony 4K media server here, but the content is all HDCP so I'm not sure that we can feed the JVC true 4K. Unfortunately, I had to give Sony back another 4K server which had content without copy protection, when I returned the VW350ES. If I've got a few days notice though, I can probably scare up a Red-ray player with 4K content, now that the guy who does our video production works at RED as his "day" job. Last time I had a Red-ray player lent to me, I don't think the material was HDCP encoded.
