I was just about to contact you after seeing your YouTube video and it looks like some other folks beat me to it.
I have been wanting to upgrade my projector (Epson 6500ub) and really want the new Epson 5020 but it doesn't do the motorized zoom/lens memory. I don't want to settle for the Panny as the Epson offers (IMHO) the perfect combination of reliability, service, brightness, and contrast for the money.
I really want a 2:35 screen and I don't want to fool with an A-Lens setup plus like the other features and functions of the Lumagen so this is very appealing to me.
I watch a TON (mostly, actually) of Animated shows like Family Guy, South Park, Simpsons, American Dad, etc. If there is any way you could add some animated TV shows (even an older episode from before 2007 or so of Family Guy which is easy to find almost any day/evening on many stations) in both 16:9 native (newer episodes from 2009 on to be safe) and older episodes that were originally 4:3 but now come in as 16:9 as already scaled from TBS, Fox, etc, and show them stretched to 2:35 this could be the deal maker/breaker for me. Again, I'd be very appreciative.
Also, do you know what the advantages/disadvantages of having the projector do this stretching (assuming a projector that can do it) vs. having an A-Lens vs. having something like the Lumagen do this scaling/stretching? Is there a difference in brightness, contrast, pixel loss, artifacts, etc? There have to be advantages/disadvantages to each method but I'm new to this idea and just trying to figure them out.
Also, sense this is pretty much the only feature I really want/need, is there any other less expensive Lumagen (or other) product that you (or anyone else that cares to chime in) are aware of that will do this, so I could invest more in the projector instead of this device that does a lot of other stuff I don't need?
Thanks so much! This is the best and most helpful YouTube video I have ever seen!
