I think you are right about that, Max...but, I just missed the demo of the panel alignment feature in the menu. Maybe you saw this, Tryg or someone else?
Some more info is need by me on our evaluation of convergence. I was not there when a grid was put up. I evaluated this on movie titles. Might there have been some misalignment out there at the edges? Maybe so, but I couldn't detect any. Production quality we'll have to wait and see.
I inferred that the extra tweaks were going to be smaller things that contribute to the sum (contrast, a bit more refined D65 performance, maybe lumens, etc.).
Yes, I haven't mentioned the optics. They undoubtedly are very important...and MUST play a very important role with the sum of the level of performance we see. They must be quite good. The JVC guys didn't gloat on this, but emphasized that it was a very good lens. I certainly believe them upon seeing. In fact, it has me wondering how this projector may up the ante on anamorphic optical quality. Remember, none of what we saw yesterday used scaling and an anamorphic lens. I would not only be concerned about retaining/enhancing resolution, but not being detrimental to one of the projector's strongest features: blacks. Any significant optical refraction that would lift blacks would not be good. I do think that a good anamorphic will do as advertised, improve resolution and tweak up luminance a bit. Obviously, some testing necessary when they arrive. JVC will endorse the Panamorph U380 and Schneider lens for the RS1. They did have a U380 on static display...first time I've seen it. Wow, Shawn...what a gorgeous piece!
