Really cool, this certainly seems like it could be a dream projector! Hopefully the laser light source has fixed the issue of slight light pumping/flickering. Also, just imagining the JVC's incredible native black levels with their wire grid polarizers combined with a good dynamic laser modulation system is enough to make me salivate.... Can't wait to read more about it in september.
By the way, does anyone know if the gamma droop that happens with the JVC's panels occur due to heat or other factors generated by the UHP lamp, or does it happen simply due to the panels being switched on and working?
, this seems like a question you guys would have some knowledge on.
If it is, i'd imagine going over to laser would finally remove the only "unstable" part of the D-ILA panels. Which would of course be great.
I don't know if it has got to do with the laser light source, or the liquid crystal on quartz technology that Epson uses, but that the panels in my LS10000 supposedly remain completely stable over time is a major bonus in my mind. My dealer's demo unit had just over 1000 hours on it and was identical to how it was when initially set up. Not having to change the lamp is in by itself a great thing for people who use their projector a lot. Not needing recalibration is icing on the cake. Just switch it on and enjoy with complete ease of mind with regards to racking up hours. Would be great if this was the case with the JVC as well, as they move over to laser.
