I promise a follow up as soon as I can. I want to take some measurements to solidify what I am seeing but I think Sim2 are on to something.
A few quick impressions, you guys are in for a surprise.
Watching a scope movie with dynamic black on ( not using a anamorphic lens ) the black bars completely disappear. I even threw this on the high power thinking the bars would show up but still a no show. Turning off DB raises black and they are back. I would have never expected this level of black from any 3 chip DLP. We are not talking crushed black, shadow detail remains. Lcos now has some serious competition.
Toggling dynamic black on/off during a movie the difference seamed subtle but somehow its impacting mostly lower IREs.
The iris is positioned after the lamp before the optical light path so clamping down the iris always maintains full ANSi contrast. Open the iris all the way keeping dynamic black on, the bars remain gone. Dynamic black and lamp modulation seam to be working at the same time enhancing one another. For an example during a star field the combination of DB with lamp modulation ( the lamp increases ) expand dynamic contrast. Any little object of light ( if at 100 IRE ) remain at 100 IRE against black and jumps off the screen where without the modulation using just an iris the upper IREs would be dimmed in parallel along with the blacks. I am very impressed so far. More tomorrow night.
