Would like to know this too, if anyone has the information.

Its correct, it can "only" do it in 2D mode, so you have to do it in a BR player (like a Oppo 93/95 !? ) or a ext. scaler

I could be mistaken, but I thought that the Sony did not have 3D stretch for A-lens. At least that is what I remember from CEDIA, but of course I could be wrong. I am sure some one will come along and correct me.

I LOVE this time of year.

Very much look forward to it, Joe. Will you post here, or only on your own site?

PS: Now if you could also get a 1000ES to look at .... !

I will post everything here. My full Review though will be on my personal site since it is much easier to do a web page for me. Takes are fine on the Forum.

Btw, I will have a 1000ES to Review.

Do you know when?

95ES hopefully 7 to 10 days. If not a little after.
1000ES hopefully Decemberish...

No worries, I will either help with starting an owner's thread here or let everyone know here and participate in one.

I primarily meant the 1000 -- since there was talk of AVS getting one of the show prototypes to look at, I thought maybe there was a shot at an early look. Right now, for my theater, the 95ES and the JVC are basically in a toss-up, depending largely on which one throws a brighter image. The JVC has better installation flexibility (more lens shift and longer throw) and the 4k-lite. The 95ES is believed to have better motion handling and better 3D, and is likely quieter. Comparing last year's models, the Sony was substantially brighter, but JVC may have made changes.

But the 1000.... That has the potential to be the best of all worlds. Equivalent or better installation flexibility, Sony's new 3D, high native contrast, high DI contrast, quiet, bright.
post #196 of 574
The 1000 will be a terrific piece as long as it is great with all material. As for JVC I know many are taking a "wait and see" approach after the dimming debacle. Sony strategically put the msrp of the 95 to set it up as a possible knockout punch for this year. Well played.
post #197 of 574
Exactly my thinking, yes.
post #198 of 574
Id sure like to ask the people from JVC if they have done tests with their "so called revised bulb" to ensure the premature dimness has really been fixed.

I read somewhere that the luminance is now adjustable in the CMS. I think before there was only "xy" available for adjustment. So if this is indeed an improvement, we'll now have xyY which is all that is needed - assuming it is implemented correctly and tracks well linearly etc.

That said, I am still pretty sure I will pick up a Lumangen Mini no matter which PJ I get. This is because I am so tired of poor, buggy or PITA to use CMS systems (ahhem JVC). So it will be nice to just know going into it that the CMS and grayscale controls work well and are easy to use. Plus it will be very nice for automated calibration using third party software that provides such a feature.

You wouldn't happen to have a extra room to rent out while you reviewing these pjs would you

I understand the enthusiasm for the 1000, but if I had the do-re-mi for it, I would really be putting it up against the SIM2 100 series, unless I had a pretty large screen, and I'm assuming that anyone in the price class would be putting it in a dedicated room with good light control.

A fair comment, but I, like some others, do prefer the lcos look rather than dlp, esp the high contrast. Also, the price of the 1000ES is that of entry level Sim2's; e.g., I think the Solo is about twice as much as the 1000.

Thanks lovingdvd. Yes, it looks like the RCP (Real Color Processing) Version 2 will indeed have an adjustment for color brightness. I hope that Sony will make the CMS bug free so I can avoid spending more money on external devices like the Lumagen Mini. I'm really looking forward to JoeRod's review of the VW95....can't wait!

RCP 2 does not work correctly in the HW30. IIMU that Sony is aware of the issues and have promised a fixed version in the VW95.

The good news is that OOTB the Rec 709 mode is very accurate in both the HW30 and VW90 so a CMS ma not be required.

Funny you mentioned that...

I was thinking about having a get together when the 1000ES is up.

Do you mean the new MICO 100 series, or something else?

I am very interested in the MICO 100 series, actually, because it should be very quiet and not lose significant brightness over time (and also be instant-on and have 120Hz 3D). But, I am extremely flicker and RBE sensitive, and have yet to spend any quality time with a MICO, so I don't know whether I'll still see a single-chip DLP rainbow effect with it or not.

Lack of RBE is something I really like about 3-chip machines, and one of the reasons the Sony and JVC models interest me.
post #207 of 574
Honestly I don't understand why Sony would put of a faulty CMS, my gawd didn't they know that the damn thing didn't work right to start with! Come Sony smarten up already!

Yes, I was referring to the new 140, 150, 160 models which are around the MRSP of the 1000. As millerwill though pointed out it is dlp and if you prefer lcos and have any sensitivity towards rbe then the 1000 definitely leads the pack.

There are several companies out there that have had issues with the CMS. Not sure where the break down is. You would assume that someone says lets get our calibrators in here and have him or her calibrate the machine with the CMS. Either it works or it doesnt

Is there any word how well the 95's CMS function works?
