With this said how far off could Sony be with a VW1000 with a laser light engine?. We know that Sony has the necessary laser diodes ready.
A JVC was modded with a laser light source many years ago at CES I think. With 4k panel the size of Sony´s JVC too could build a great laser projector.
How great would it be not to have to worry about buld aging or lamps die prematurely..
God, yes. That's one of the main attractions of this projector for me. And while we're throwing around rumors, I've read one that says there will be no need for calibration of the Red projector (self calibrating). A lot of pros are expected to use it (the home version) for color grading, so the color has to be right.
Please, everyone, do not quote me. This is from poor recollection of materials I've read over the past several weeks. And for the record, we don't know what the contrast of this projector will be. All this is just speculation. As someone in the Red Forum said, this kind of speculation gets picked up and repeated as fact, when it's not. Speculation can become misinformation very quickly. When I mentioned such rumors in the Red thread, several members chimed in with how great the Red laser looks. One Red regular said he's read just about everything on the projector, and he's never heard a single bad comment about the contrast. I love reading those kinds of impressions from people who've actually seen it, but, when push comes to shove, only my own lookin' balls will prove it to me.
