DPI Titan

Thinking about changing my Sony vw 1000 for a Dpi Titan
Has anyone try them side by side, what can i expect more than a major increase in brightness?
Will the picture quality decrease, are there handshake problems with the Titan 3d and blue-ray players
since the pj only haves Dvi ?

Any information will be gratefully appreciated.

Why would you look at a Titan SX, the native resolution for that chip is 1400 x 1050, or 4:3.

You would want an Ultra Contrast unit at the very least in my opinion, I am not sure about the Wuxga native format and how it performs vs 1920 x 1080 HD units

If you're going to buy from the German company on EBay, I wouldn't do it. I was burned by then on a projector purchase. Only positive was that it was covered by a warranty.

Yes i spoke to them to among others.
Sad when people are not honest, but good that it was covered by warranty, may i ask what was wrong with pj?

Hard to get much info about Titan here at the forum, must be at least a couple of owners among members
and probably someone have try it against the Sony vw 1000
but guess they are not interested to share.

Ther's a 24 page thread in this forum regarding the Titan here Titan 1080P 3D Dual Ultra Thread

You will not find any cooments regarding the WUXGA model as that is not a home theater model

If you were local in the Los Angeles area I'd be happy to show you the Titan we have. Can't help with the Sony but I'm sure you can find it somewhere to see. I use a 6K lumen 1080P high brightness 3D unit which runs 2000:1 contrast, which may be comparable to the wuxga unit you are looking at. If the lens is replaced with a high contrast lens, they claim a 5000:1 contrast I believe. That cuts your lumens down to 3000 though and hurts your 3D.

The reference models give you the best of both worlds with high brightness and contrast, but they run 20-30k more, big bucks.

IMHO much less than 6k lumens just doesn't cut it for active 3D. I've been living with that for a couple years now and can't imagine having less lumens than that. Thats a bare minimum, 10-12k would be even better.

Their 4K unit is coming and we already have a PO in for one to replace the Titan, at which point we will be moving the Titan for a smokin deal, but that's still not until Q4 at the earliest.

Thanks for reply
I am not stuck on the WUXGA, it was just a sweet offer , looking for something brighter
then the VW 1000 but it doesn't have to be the WUXGA maybe not even a DPI .

The Sony haves a nice image ,its mostly the 3d that suffers, so will probably look around a little more
whats available.

Well there are Sony's bigger brothers to the 1000/1100, they can do passive 3D at 2K resolution. But those cost quite a bit more than the 1000. Do you wnat brightness or on-off contrast or both.just brightness is reasonably easily had, but both is tricky and costly.

Well both would be nice, but i understand that it would be costly,
also i dont want anything that has lesser image than the Sony vw 1000.

That was also reason that i was curios if any member had try them side by side
because the vw is a 4k pj and the Titan is 1080
