I'd like to know as well. Guessing it's more CR than the HT5000 Pro and more light than the HT 5000.

Wonder how much money is "money no object" ?

The kind of money that guys like you are able to spend, much to the envy of guys like me

Edit: Are you watching the UMich/BGSU game? The new stadium looks beautiful, I just wish we had a defense to match At least our offense looks pretty sweet...

The renovated Big House is awesome IMO (MIchigan Alum). It was all but completed last year if you were within the structure. The box seating, suites etc are now done. The stadiums official capacity is 109,901 but they've already set the NCAA record with over 113,000 this year. I missed the game today I attended my son's concert .

So from the other thread 7500:1 at 3000 lumens ! That is quite nice. If it has the panel alignment the present 5000 has with no unknown skeletons,what's not to like.

Art as long as the new platform uses the same size chip you would not need another lens you could use your current lens.

I was told that the Teatro 50 will be $60k and the Teatro 80, $70k. Supposedly the 50 (single lamp) will be 4500ANSI and 5000:1; the 80 (dual lamp) will be 8000ANSI and 7500:1. They are both IP addressable.

Did anyone see their dual Lumis passive 3D demo? It was amazing! (as well it should be for $80K). The presenter said that any C3X Lumis purchased in the last year could be modified and combined with another Lumis (along with all the mounting hardware) for the cost of the 2nd projector (i.e. $40K). They used a clip from a Black Eyed Peas concert. I think it was the best 3D demo at the show. And it was on a unity gain white screen....not a polarized screen.

Yes. I saw it and it was very good. Had artifacting problems bluring horizontal motion though. More than a second stripped down lumis is required though. One needs the stripping of the first lumis and the installation of the filters in it (Sim2 will do an exchange), plus the alignment platform for the second lumis plus the box to send each projector theleft or right frame sequential frames plus to do the needed color correction. this might be builtinto each projector. I don`t know.

Unchanged. Peter's was the best I've seen but I'm not sure I want to watch movie after movie in 3-D.

Gaming is where it's at.

I'm still don't really care for it. Of all the 3D demos I saw, I really only liked Peter's. If I could afford Peter's mini IMAX, maybe. But I think that rig comes with substantial infrastructure needs too . It was a great demo for 3D. Only other one I saw that I even cared for a little was the Titan.

I am surprised that Sim2 could not migrate the Dynamic Black from the Lumis series to the HT5000 series

Seems like the biggest thing missing. I wonder what the list of improvements really is. For instance, anything with fill ratio? I'm guessing not. Seems like fairly small improvements in lumens and contrast ratio (although for people who are really wanting for lumens from the HT5000 that could be a big deal). I wonder if the colors will be better and/or things like motion handling.

For somebody who didn't need all those lumens I wonder if they could get a modified lens for more CR (unless it has a manual iris in the lens, which would be even better).

They were clear at the show that Teatro had lower performance than Lumis (e.g. contrast) but brought more brightness for larger screens. From what I have seen, the same compromise and then some exists in many super bright projectors.

Whilst it is the case that the Lumis offers better performance than the 5k and Teatro in some areas, there are quite a number of other, important areas, where exactly the opposite is true.

I've had the good fortune to shoot the Lumis and a 5k on the same screen, and could readily see the advantages of both.

I was just conveying what they said. The Teatro was not displayed at the show so no personal experience with it yet.

What did you find that 5000 did better? I am assuming you are not going to say it is brighter .

I watched a couple of movies on my Lumis last night the picture was incredible, great brightness color and contrast.
