I agree with you and it will be interesting to see the result, if we get a choice. Really looking forward to CEDIA this year. It is going to be an exciting year.

Actually my large low gain AT screen is in a light controlled dedicated room. In the family room, I have a smaller 106" 2.8 gain HP screen. Yes the color space is larger, but much of the gained size...

That would have been my second guess. :) I would not give lamp life a though, with your screen.

From the info you gave on your screen, I am guessing that you have a Carada with Brilliant White fabric. The actual gain on that screen is slightly below 1.1. If you do actually have a 1.4 gain 113"...

I agree, but even if the projector can do P3, I would like to have the option to not use it and keep the 30% light output, while still getting 4K and HDR. I suspect that many after viewing both...

Of all the things to leave out, P3 would be my first choice. A lot of people would not be happy with 30% light loss, to get the slightly larger color space. Remember the biggest gains in the color...

If there is a way to select 709, then all you are giving up is the slightly larger color space. So you can have the larger screen and HDR. This 30% loss is what I talked about a long time ago, saying...

With an A-lens, you will not have any image projected above and below your screen. This is because you are already using the full height of the chip. What you will get is a cropped image. If the...

To me it depends on how much of a difference P3 makes with UHD BD. The theaters have been showing DCI for years and yet no one gave it much thought compared to what we saw on our home systems. So I...

Seegs is correct. So to answer the question, yes you can connect a UHD BD player to HDMI input 2 on a VW1100 and play 4K copy protected content.

As Craig said, too many variables. Usually lamps dim too much, not completely die. The guy with a VW600 shooting onto a 110" wide ST130 (1.3 gain) is going to get a lot longer lamp life than the guy...
