I want to do 13' wide minimum, microperf, unity gain screen, 3D, and zoom. I was hoping to be able to use the vw1000, but I don't think it would have enough light. I'm pretty excited about the 515 based on specs. It can do passive 3D without needing a stack. My PJ room is outside of the theater. I have the power, cooling, and space for it.
Unfortunately, with unity gain, I dont think you will be happy with the 1000 and 3d. I have the EN4k screen, which is well under unity gain at around .77, and I get "enough" light right now at about 10ftL in 2d at 160" wide scope. But 3d is too dim. I keep trying, and tried twice with the Hobbit, but its just too dim.
The sample I have of Stewart microperf ST130 seems like it would be bright enough in 3d to be OK. The sample of Snomatte unity gain microperf does not seem like it would be bright enough.
But when you get that 515 you can do the Hobbit at 48fps! (*need Peter Jackson to send you a special copy)
"Supports 2K 3D HFR (48P/60P) as standard"
But you may need your own Nuclear power source...
