It is true that this projector may be a relative bargain. You may not be able to hold your nose in the air in a room of true home theater snobs but this could be a small price to pay if the performance is what is promised.

One issue I had with the older panels and panel driver was that there seemed to be sometype of bandwidth or communication issue where bitdepth and chroma subsampling seemed to be lessened and some banding/posterization artifacts occur because of it. I'd be interested to hear if this issue has been corrected on the newer panels.
Subjectively speaking we did not see any posterization/banding with respect to the demo that we were given; and we specifically looked for it. We were shown a variety of content, which was not demonstrated during CinemaCon, before the prototype fully broke, that included footage from the new Spiderman: Homecoming movie, and we did not see any whatsoever. However, to be sure and to provide definitive confirmation we would need to have handson with an actual unit, which we are hoping to do at an early stage, perhaps with respect to the beta prototype whenever that is manufactured (this was the alpha prototype). But early indications are that no, there is no posterization/banding issue.

I did not see any posterization either. You can sleep well there. Et Tu Sonneborn?

Not sure who is joking or who is being serious here! But even at the pessimistically-probably-higher-than-what-it-will-actually-be price range we are guesstimating this new projector will reside, it will represent excellent value for money, comparatively speaking... It's not going to be the only new fish in the pond by the time it's released, so we think it needs to and will be priced very competitively, which is good news for anyone considering purchasing one of these.

Not trying to start into an argument but I'm confused by these comments. Define "higher signal to noise ratio", as I am not sure what you are referring to here. Digital video doesn't really have a SNR, while the content creation may (film grain vs a crystal clear digital capture). Images have dynamic range, which few cinema DLPs do well (exception is probably Dolby here). High ANSI is great for content that has an average picture level near 50%, but it has been shown time and again now that most content rarely exceeds 10% APL, which is why sequential CR's are so popular (see what Dolby did with Dolby Cinema? They didn't improve ANSI to get that kind of dynamic range).

As for perfect color, not sure what that means either. Perfect in that it covers 100% of intended gamut?? Most consumer projectors on the market today can do 100% of BT709, which is all Blu-ray content. For HDR projectors you get varying ranges of gamut coverage for P3's coverage within 2020, but a few can get within about 98-100% (which is better than a lot of mastering monitors used in Hollywood). Chroma resolution isn't an issue with some panels supporting 12 bit resolution, but chroma resolution is low in the content too. So are you talking about something else? DCI projectors used in the home typically gets kudos for their brightness capability and better lenses. This leads to more color luminance, which is why people usually say the color looks "different", but it has nothing to do with accuracy (accuracy is gamut coverage and hitting luminance targets based on your peak white). Our eyes just naturally gravitate to brighter colors, which images with 25+ fL provide.

Think of Cedia as like a " speed dating " event, where you go to see which new models you would like to spend more time with, intimately, in the privacy of your home.

That goes without saying you're fully aware of the issue I'm describing on past .74" SXRD 4K projectors, correct?

Hello Chris! Good to hear from you. I have sensory overload today, but will be happy to articulate under wich conditions, the general rules you point out DO NOT APPLY. Ues 8,000:1 sequential is clearly better than say 7,300:1 but I am not talking about ordinary projectors. But the fact is that research by Alan coupled with the research in optical screens clearly is another situation altogether. Alan and I sometimes fall out like siblings. Happy siblings day Alan. But we always make up. I will postulate the why of my statement adressing all your points. Like Eric said sleep is good.

A actually would like to as soon as Mark Seaton completes the remaining Sub upgrade which should be in the next few weeks. I'd like to call it a party
since, although the home theater stuff is great, it's getting people together who are into the same hobby who can appreciate the stuff, the knowledge and zeal for the common interest which is the fun. Since my daughters are grown and live on the west coast, I thought I could ask some of my staff to help out as ushers etc.

The "protective coatings" were also discussed early in the 5000ES thread as having been applied to the panels in the 5000ES PJ units....Wolfgang, I thought, had heard directly from Sony regarding this......

Precisely. This is what I was referring to. We think Sony will be applying the same 'protective coatings' as they did with the Sony 5000ES with respect to this new range of projectors, given this is the only way really that Sony could so definitively state that panel degradation will not be an issue. We knew this would come up, in that folks on here would want to know and having experienced the woes of SXRD panel degradation ourselves and with respect to some of our customers we also wanted to know, which is why we asked the question.

Any word on whether Sony will attempt to show this again after the transit damages at CinemaCon?

Also, if a separate consumer HT model were to potentially exist, how long (realistically) would we know before the commercial version is available in late 2018? Or would it more likely come after the commercial version was already on the market for a reasonable period of time?

Being a full scale commercial cinema projector I doubt so... Although Barco does include their Thor in the residential lineup, Sony's top residential would still be the VW5000...

Hi Lasalle, as it happens we spoke with the respective people at Sony regarding this yesterday, and with respect to this new in-development true RGB laser projector, it is still in the R&D stage and so won't be available for at least 12 months either way. But what they did say is that the demand for this type of projector within the professional/commericial market will be small and so they are hoping that there might be interest from the high-end home theater market as well... Where we think that, what with the manifestation of DCI compliant video walls, Sony are seeking to diversify in the same regard as Barco when it comes to this type of product. So nothing has changed in this regard since our initial report, in that whereas previously Sony has refused to allow such professional/commercial projectors to be sold into the HT market, this most certainly will not be the case with respect to this projector as and when it eventually is released, and our source for this is Sony themselves. That said, whilst Sony may be seeking to sell the product into both markets, their primary focus will be the professional/commercial market and so Jon is quite right in this regard and the fact that it won't be demoed at CEDIA, but we think it's quite likely that they might have the next stage working prototype at CinemaCon 2018, where we will be attending as usual, so will be able to post a report on here again as per previously.
