Well I am the pauper in the room, but i do get to play with the latest gadgets vicariously through my installations. Nest year I will have one or two installations completed by Q4. By that time i will have CLEDIS 720p.
it will kill every (non-cledis or perhaps samsung hdr)home theater on the planet with just 720p.
Consider that I have found and corroborated with many, some luminaries from here, that any decent home theater should be designed for a very very small near midfield audience, 10 years from now, except for PLF's, a large theater with many seats it's to be considered a moron's expensive folley.
As it turns out who would have thought that THXMAN's Proteus was indeed the personal space envelopment ideal environ.
So those gargantuan projection screens people seek after, come with a big cost on sound envelopment, there are ways to do PLF right however it's so good to be in the near-mid field that people should reconsider. That leads the way for these DOLBY MICRO CINEMAS of utterly uncompromised performance, where the partial cledis is the very best. and in 4 year times you can quadruple your res, but this lets look at that blueish wishy washy out garbage that 99% of the projectors discussed here offer, If I was a dictator in a banana republic that would be cause for the firing squad. The Sheer idiocy and to think thousands of so called professionals go to these shows to look at this crap and then CRIMINALLY resell it for $100,000 dollars to unsuspecting americans. This is BS, a freaking mass genocide of PQ.
Cledis is the way, start partial. Comport your life in ways conducive to a HIGH FORMS OF SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR for yourself the Selfish Bastard and for yours, to go in a dark room to be TORTURED by the garbage these BL projectors show, is low low low. Sheer stupidity.
Want to know what a good picture is? since HDR wcg came out, put away the textbook, forget what you read in this forum, i'm sorry Darrin but your field of research on these garbage projectors is as low as some junkie discussing the different potencies of the garbage they are shooting in their veins, BOTH ARE THE SCOURGE OF MANKIND opiates and Blu Laser, an equally expensive pandemic.
Want to know what a good picture is?
Go to a tropical latitude,on an overlook,out the window on a beautiful day and demand a display that challenges your view, if it doesn't and you say it is ok to compromise then YOU ARE THE ANTI VIDEOPHILE. OLED nearfield is ok, but partial CLEDIS is here today, sell the watch collection, wine, extra cars, if your video image is not comparable to a great view, you are a loser, and part of the problem.
Because that display is your primary window to the world,and it is for entertainment information but also for you livelihood information both should be as compelling as they can be. if you are going to dress in a tux, barefoot is a no no. The HT is the tuxedo, projection (with the above mentioned possible exceptions with the real d, but still why pay 200 for something not perfect when 400 gets you perfect) is the absence of shoes and socks. Question everything, it's your life dummy! don't build the theater do a OLED micro dolby cinema with 18 speakers, infinitely more enjoyable, infinitely more enlightening. And about the center channel blah, blah, blah speak to my hand as you are a lazy a$$ idiot that are afraid of what is possbible, if not superior.
As you can sit 5.5 feet away from this what you are seeing is not the whole panel your field of vision is seeing hd or 1.5 times hd.
So.. Instead of selling 72 panels at $16,667 per panel, I can do the 1080p for 18 panels 1.77 native, or a 32 1.77 scaled or 40 2.2 aspect ratio scaled.
To bathe on you super-luxurious You must always zoom 2.37 to 2.0 anyways so the scaling is to be exploited except for full screen content.
It is not that expensive if you are doing a home theater now. The new alcons speakers go inside a frame around the screen.
That works perfect I already have implemented many times with the very worse acoustical screen that looks the best: Torus. If it works with torus an passes muster with TOP acousticians, you are being a fraidy cat insisting that a center channel cannot be superbly recreated from a frame array.
My message: Do it right or don't get out of bed, go on cryo because these projection systems being pushed down your throats are nothing but sheer and absolute garbage. I spit, regurgitate and defecate on the lot. With a possible exception of the Duo or the Barco Superkontrast modeled XENON, REAL BELGIAN MADE 1st Class Barco, not the Norwegian Proletariat class. And no reald ultimate screen? get out of the way cause I'm puking long. You might get doused.
