2.35:1 PC Gaming - Powered by Lumagen!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Lumagen,

Thank you for the new firmware update:

Production 101711- Added new capability for PC gaming with 2.35 screens. If you set up your PC for a 1920x816/817 output resolution almost all current games will render with a wider field of view. If you select 2.35 input aspect on the Radiance with this type of input mode the Radiance can then output it correctly on a 2.35 screen using either anamorphic lens (Radiance output aspect set to 2.35) or optical zoom (Radiance output aspect set to 1.78 aka 16:9).

What does this do you may ask?

Well it can take a PC Gaming setup from this:



Normal 16:9 PC Gaming... Boring higher resolution, much more graphic detail, significantly more frames per second Console Experience. LOL.




To this:



"1337" (leet - for the un-gamers) 2:35 PC Gaming!!!! Exciting higher resolution, much more graphic detail, significantly more frames per second , and WIDE FOV elite gaming experience!!!

What are the benefits?

- Wider Field of View in games with NO fisheye distortion
- The game is rendered at 1920X816 or 1920X817 you'll also have more performance then rendering at the full unimpressive 16X9...

* Lumagen Products are sold via AVS Science Store!!!!




*some more examples:

Bioshock



Crysis 2












Portal 2





Just Cause 2

* Below - When the games are designed WRONG!!! They lose height and gain no FOV. (luckily very few games)

BulletStorm

Awesome setup and great news about the Radiance update !

May I ask which projector you're using (in terms of minimizing processing lag) ?

Do you have pictures of how you sit with keyboard and mouse?

Also how is the lag projectors and i assume the radiance will add game lag doing this processing.

Looks very nice by the way.

Screen - Seymour AV - Center Stage HD
Size - 150" wide
Lag - A very small amount is added via the lumagen, but I only play single player games on this setup and have a normal LCD monitor for multiplayer gaming.
Setup - Small fold out table that is wide enough to fit both keyboard and mouse.

* The screen shots are direct feeds from fraps then pasted on top of my theater screen. As this give a better representation of what I actually see via a crappy low light image from my I-phone.

And one last question, i am very impressed with your theater build on your signature.

Do you own a construction company or do that for a living. I just cant even imagine doing that work alone, or finding the time.

No I had a contractor do the bones for me.

I had planed it out for 2 years, gave him the drawings and said this is how I need it to be.

He got it to this point.



Then I did the rest.

Wow still very impressive you did that much work!

do you have any real images? , these totally look photochopped. The amount of noise around projected image exceeds the amount of noise on the projected image itself. those two lights on the ceiling would project a small amount of light on the pics with black bars on the side aswell. Also the angle of the black bars at the end are too perpedicular to the angle of the side walls which slant out due to the camera lens. There also is no grain in the area of black bars on the side which if were a real picture would show even more than the noise in the rest of the greyed areas.

Im sure the firmware is real but i can tell a photochopped pic when i see one.

on that note , sweet setup and happy gaming!!!!!

They are shopped, but I would never take a legitimate projector shot with the lights on and with my iPhone. This is the best way to replicate what I actually see in the fully dark environment. If anyone can get images that clean and clear with a projector and the lights on, sign me up... Lol. I currently do not have a high end digital slr camera or even a decent point and click to take pics that are worth a you know what... This is not to deceive but just as a reference to what you can expect.
