.....any info filtered through about the dimentions of this beauty?
At CEDIA I used a 8.5x11 sheet of paper to get a rough measure of the dimensions of the BASE, which is relevant to whether or not it will fit on the stand that I have behind our 2 recliners (it will, just!). This is 15"W and 18.5"D. The full cabinet is obviously larger.
The only other data I got from a brochure is
Throw ratio: 1.27 - 2.73 (for 16x9)
Powered lens shift: +/- 80% of vertical ht, +/- 30% horizontal width
Air intake is around slots surrounding the lens, exhaust is out the rear
2000 lumens (undoubtedly in high lamp), 1M:1 CR (with DI, and undoubtedly in low lamp)
That's about all the hard data I've found.
FWIW I went back and looked at cine4home's measurements for the Sony 90ES, which is spec'ed at 1000 lumens and 150K:1 CR (with DI):
He got a max of 880 lumens, with calibrated colors, and presumably in high lamp. If this same ratio applied to the 1000ES, one would have 1760 lumens with calibrated colors, high lamp. And if one looses the typical 30% in going to low lamp, this would give 1230 lumens, calibrated in low lamp.
He measured a max of 20K:1 CR native, and 80K:1 with DI. If this ratio applied to the 1000ES, it would mean 130K:1 native and 530K:1 with DI.
All above pure speculation, but that's all we can do at present!
