That is exactly what I was trying to say. And it is actually easy to understand since the DI of the JVC is the same as the static one (in the center of the optics, which improves the native contrast by closing).Regards,Ekki
Well, the dynamic contrast ist about the same with the X700 (around 300,000:1). So measurement wise, the X700 does not show any benefit.However in dark movie-scenes, where the DI closes, the native contrast increases more with a X700 than with a X500.If you use the static Iris and open it, there never was much of a benefit of a DLA-X7(x) model over a DLA-X3(x) or DLA-X55 model anyway. (30k:1 vs. 25k:1)That is nothing new or exclusive to the new X-series.Regards,Ekki
Yes, actually we already measured and checked two X700 today.And we did encounter and can confirm major HDMI-handshake problems. Same symptoms like already described (black screen / frozen Picture / only quarter Screen used and so on).Only solution was to turn it of and pull the power. Afterwards it worked again.Not good at all..Regards,Ekki
Oh I forgot to mention:All contrast values measured above with minimum throw distance and Iris open.Contrast increases with longer throw distance and Iris closed (but therefore brightness decreases)Overall, you get about 10% contrast more than with the X55...HDMI handshake Problems did not occur.Regards,Ekki
Yes, we checked about half a dozen. Here are the preliminary results:(All measured with minimum throw distance and Iris open)- Maximum brightness : Between 1200 and 1300 lumens , 1240 lumens average- Brightness calibrated : Between 940 and 1100 lumens , 1050 lumens average- Eco mode : Approx -30 %- Contrast native / calibrated : Between 26,000:1 and 30,000:1 , 27,500:1 average- Contrast Dynamic: Factor of 13 , between 300,000:1 and 400,000:1- Gamma: Perfect factory Gamma...
I dont know if you missed that due to the online ranslation, but we switched to a complete new Color Analysis two years ago. And there we measure many more saturations and luminances (hundreds) as any other reviewer. The results we show usually in the complex DeltaE diagrams, often even with real world Pictures. So actually we are not 1 year behind, but at least 6 years ahead comcening that Topic.Regards,Ekki
We just published our series check (20+ machines).
Also wie looked inside for the HDMI Driver Chips:
From our experience, screenshots in a review can never show the actual live picture Quality.(camera->donwscaling->Color compression->PC Monitor)Therefore we hardly ever use them as most of the time they are misleading.Regards,Ekki
