Sure, that's believable.... Why didn't he say more ridiculous things. How about 10000 calibrated lumens, or possibly better than DLP 3D.

Do the reps know that the type of people who go to CEDIA...

So Sim2 now has a new source for LEDs? I was under the assumption that the PhatLight 120's were still the only ones out there. If that's not the case, then that means it's still using the RAPCUR...

These projectors aren't modular so the resolution will remain 1080p. Everything would have to replaced to support 4K. Processing, light path, micro-display device, optics, ect.

It's not the pump that makes the noise. I have a TruVue Vange which uses the same LED light engine the Sim2 uses. It's the Osram RAPCUR module that powers the LEDs. When they demand full power, the...

Currently, the 300ES is only available in Europe. There are no plans at the moment to bring it to the US market.

It's actually been shown graded .65" DMD's can give you about the same contrast performance the larger .95" DMD can. For instance, my old Runco LS-10i had three .65" DMDs and we saw native contrast...

I'm confused. The lasers aren't what gives these projectors high native contrast and the "spinal tap" type of black is only when you use the laser like a dynamic iris and even still if the laser...

You're saying you could use the iris to see if the difference in brightness will be large enough so you'd know if you want to use the anamorphic lens or not?

You don't get a gain with the lens. You actually lose a bit of brightness. I'm saying with the lumen amount being equal you'll get a brighter image with the A-Lens every time. You could mount the...

Thanks Mike! Please keep us informed. It would be odd if they only offered the new software on "new" units as that would make them decidedly different than all the other X500's out in the wild. It...

A 160" wide 2.35:1 screen only has a surface area of 75.6 square feet, compare that to the 99.8 square feet for the 16/9 image created when zooming. That's a lot more surface area to spread the same...

The only issue I see with zooming is the size of the image he has. To zoom to fill a 160" wide image were looking at 100 square foot 16/9 image. At 1500 max lumens on the 600ES and not much more on...

For the quality of lens on both the 1100ES and 600ES you should really only be using an ISCO IIIL. I've had a UH480 and now own an ISCO IIIL and while the UH480 get's you about 75% of the performance...

Definitely. There are many situations where an ultra-short throw projector makes sense. There are plenty of people with tight spaces that also want a huge high quality image.
