this is copied and pasted from their site:
Full-On/Full-Off Contrast Ratio: 16,558:1
All of the measurements here were taken with the projector in a User mode, adjusted for the most accurate image. The Lamp Control was in its Normal setting, the Gamma also set to Normal, and the Lens Aperture was in its Bright mode (3).
The full-on/full-off contrast ratio above (sometimes referred to as the peak contrast ratio, the sequential contrast ratio, or the dynamic range) is among the best we have measured. In this group, the Sony outdoes it in its Auto1 Advanced Iris setting, but the visible difference is subtle. The JVC outdoes it (as it outdoes all other non-JVC projectors in our experience) in the spread between its peak white and black levels. Even in its high lamp setting, the JVC's black level on my screen was 0.0018 foot-lamberts and its peak white output was 28.74 ft-L, for a peak contrast ratio of 16,211:1.
