DLPs can do ten bit natively, so should have far less dithering noise when showing UHD content downscaled but still in 10-bits per channel (aka 30-bit Deep Color).

Dithering is added into every...

Enjoyed the past few episodes, happy it's been renewed too.

The main negative from this show is Bruce, for me. Penguin and Joker are really well done too, some of the best renditions in live...

I wonder why they'd change the framerate from 25 to 24, aren't all HD TVs, AVRs, etc, 25p capable natively?

Strikes me as odd, from an image quality perspective any conversion like that is a...

I agree about the challenge these DLPs will have to wow us uber-geeks and offer a compelling case for an upgrade.

I've never been able to ascertain exactly what 21:9 support means, in the context of HDMI 2.0 signal encoding.

Possible explanations:

1) It's just metadata flag to say: this 16:9 format is...

Ya I agree, I'm starting to get seriously PO'ed about the projector industry's relatively slow rate of improvements over the past five years, and how far they are behind.

I disagree here. One of the big selling points of HDMI 2.0a is HDR10, which Sony added to HDMI 1.4b via a firmware update to PS4 (original version).

Another bit of evidence that you can add...

One thing I've been curious about myself, is the question: what's the best use of bitrate for a 1080p projector? Is it 2160p HEVC? Or is it 1080p HEVC?

Assuming both have 10-bit colour. Like, is...

I thought the 45 measured in at nearly 8k:1 on/off? That's literally four times better than the w1070.

If we're going by "average" I think 2000:1 is it, since that's what most people have.

Interesting, but the enhancement layer is 4:2:2 at 1080p, so it's not the same as achieving 4:2:2 at 2160p. Although, it will certainly help. Plus, if they used some clever sample patterns they could...
