#4. How does Quatron help Black levels?
#5. One of the Biggest problems with LCD's is Fast Moving Objects and Motion.So how does Quatron help that?? Are they using IPS Panels??
#6. I am just gonna wait for OLED HDTV's then 3D OLED TV having seen the 11 inch Sony OLED in stores, that is image perfection. And they use like no power.
And plus giving how expensive its been, Its very unlikely SHARP is using individually colored LED lights everyone has switched back to just White LED's and given up on Red Green and Blue colored LED's. I wonder are the SHARP Quatrons' Edge Lite or LED Back Lit with Local Dimming???
Given how expensive a SHARP Quatron is expected to be, why not invest in a 3D HDTV??
- problem is none of the 3D TV's come equipped with the 2D to 3D broadcast tuners to convert 2D to 3D, and are only "3D Ready" remember the whole "HD Ready" scam vs HD Built in its back now with 3D.
#0 there is no such thing encoded in RGB, RGB is not a colorspace, people probably mean to say sRGB/REC.709
#1 well it is true that movies are encoded on disc (bluray) with REC 709/sRGB colorspace and they simply were not encoded in a larger space such as AdobeRGB, ProPhoto, etc. and if you simply transform the sRGB RGB primaries out the corners of say AdobeRGB you will end up something not right for sure.
1. if you use it to view photographs you took with you Canon 1D4 then that content might very well be able to make use of the Quatron and that is something that goes on all the time today
2. many current HDTV, even the best ones, still don't quite manage to match all of the ideal sRGB/REC.709 aspects and there may be finer irregularities and such, there is always some chance that this set might be able to really, really nail every last bit, although it is hard to say, and some sets already don't do too badly and it also may be very hard to calibrate, i[m almost certain my high-end calibration puck wouldn't even work with it all.
3. the visual system is complicated and it is always possible that this could make even the sRGB gamut look more like we'd ideally want to actually see it, i dont know the details but perhaps there are certain pure color holes in our ability to see it as generated by RGB only, i'd have to look into it more
#2 it's possible they might, although it might take looking at something the wrong way or a computer image, hard to say
#3 no idea
#4 they said something about the LCD crystal twist and so on and 20% more closed down, if not hype, that would help, but who knows what the starting point was
#5 no idea
#6 should be amazing if only they ever arrive at larger than 2nm screen size and last longer than 3 days
one day though, seemingly not quite as soon as I had originally thought, these beast should utterly blow any current set out of the water though
anyway one can't naively just write it off, that said there certain are plenty of things to question
and yeah contrast ratio is a truly key spec
