Get Ready for Ask Me Anything: Home-Theater Projection

Those who own—or aspire to own—a home-theater projection system know it’s the best way to replicate the cinema experience, with a larger, more immersive image than just about any flat-panel TV can deliver. Not only that, many modern home-theater projectors can display high dynamic-range (HDR) images with wide color gamut (WCG). Even better, they can be used in a wide range of environments, standing up to more ambient light than ever before.

To help you better understand and get the most out of home-theater projection, AVS Forum and Sony are offering our members an opportunity to ask an expert anything they want to know about it in a real-time interactive session. On Wednesday, August 23, 2017, from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM Pacific time (2:00 to 3:30 PM Eastern time), we will have a thread in the Digital Hi-End Projectors – $3000+ USD MSRP forum called “Ask Me Anything: Home-Theater Projection” in which you can post questions for an expert, who will answer them right then and there. Since it will be a normal AVS Forum thread, you’ll need to reload the page often to see his responses as well as any new questions that are posted.

Who’s the expert? None other than Joel Silver, founder and president of the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF), which is dedicated to improving the image quality of TVs and projectors. He chairs the CTA and CEDIA Home Theater Video Standards Committees, serves on the InfoComm Contrast Ratio Standards Committee, and is an InfoComm Fellow. Joel is also the producer of the HDTV Calibration Wizard and ISF UHDTV 4K test-pattern suites, and he is co-inventor of the Microsoft Windows Display Calibration Wizard, which is now in over 111 million PCs. He has presented at all the major industry trade shows and provided training for many top video companies, receiving accolades for being a top CEDIA instructor and a CE Pro Most Influential Industry Leader for 10 years.

In addition to getting answers about projection, those who submit a question will be automatically entered to win a Sony UBP-X1000ES UHD Blu-ray player. The winner will be selected by random drawing from among those who submit at least one question. Submitting more than one question will not increase your chance of winning.

To help things get off to a good start, we invite you to submit questions about home-theater projection in this thread; just click on the Comments tab at the top or bottom of this article. Some of those questions will be transferred over to the new thread on August 23 and answered first—and of course, you’ll also be entered to win the UBP-X1000ES UHD Blu-ray player.

So, what would you like to know about home-theater projection? Post your question(s) here and be sure to follow the event thread on August 23 for the answers.
