While I didn't measure the CR of the JVC in high lamp mode with the iris fully open we did measure it in my room with the JVC in low lamp mode with the iris fully open and the dynamic iris turned off...

We did it both ways as I mentioned above and the CR did increase. This is what I would recommend for the end user as well. I personally would probably use the Standard laser mode with the iris...

I didn't mean absolute off black like the Epson, but with the dynamic iris the measured black level of the JVC still ends up being almost too low to measure reliably. It looks like a pure blackout on...

We did not use a dynamic color mode, I used the THX preset. It was nearly dead on for 709. As I mentioned in the post above we did measure in a few different laser modes including full power with the...

We did it both ways for CR. We measured with the projector calibrated the same peak white as my JVC (14.5 fL) and got 17K:1. Then we put it in high laser mode and brought the manual iris all the way...

The JVC has more of a gradual black out than the Epson for obvious reasons. Both do full blackout for absolute black but I like the JVC was with the dynamic irises enabled. I actually use my X700...

I will do some small tests with 3D this weekend. I have the 3D test patterns that Zombie uses that show bleed over from right or left eye so at a minimum I will do that test.

I'll look into this tomorrow. I'll have the day off so I can do some testing to see how well it would work. I'll touch base with you then.
