You bet! I always get a bunch of plaudits at these things. To be exact, this Show involves 5 Custom Homes especially built together in a Cul-De-Sac gated Community so that the Public can tour them ($12.00 adm.) and see all the latest / greatest building techniques and amenities. The Homes range from $750,000.00 to just under 1 Mil. Expected attendance? Over 40,000. The only drawback? Gotta be there 10 hrs a day 6 days a week for 3 weeks! On my Feet the whole time!
You simply cannot imagine how tired I get watching every Movie I bring (at least a Dozen or more) as well as a couple Demo DVDs...over and over and over and over and over..........
Crazily...one comment I get daily on a repeated basis? "Boy...I wish I had you Job! Getting to watch Movies all day long!"
(...and if anything can prove a PJ's performance under constant daily use...this show certainly can! )
The last time I posted Attendees' comments was in a thread (...closed...) called "Roasting the Bird over a Fusion Fire".
That alluded to my only real competition at the time, the Stewart Fire Hawk and a Sim2 PJ. I had a Studio Experience DLP and a 110" Light Fusion (2004 MM-SE edition) I burned that Bird bad....but because of the posting of about 3 pages of commentary, certain elements called "Fowl" for my doing so and got the thread closed for seemingly promoting the "Sales" of what was obviously a DIY application. My intent was solely to disprove all the adverse and negative posts by those who wished to dismiss the concept...but it did come off a bit like a Infomercial...so.......
So I don't go there anymore, opting to let AVS'ers make their own judgements based on my posted efforts at project construction and the shown end results (...shown not as Eye Candy but under somewhat intolerable conditions...) Such is also the reason I do not engage in showing any extensive Tests or Graphs to justify people considering the apps I /others advocate. For others, doing so is more a case for their promoting the supposed validity of their apps over the ones shown on this Forum If I did so...it would be branded sheer promotion only, so I don't go there either.
In truth...that's what they must do because they sure as 'ell can't post up any shots that show the sort of results members can obtain with the Ambient Light apps we offer.
The big difference between what is inferred by some and the real truth is that I do what I do on AVS because I enjoy it immensely...I like helping the Forum draw / keep interested Traffic, and I especially enjoy reading the "Thank yous". Kinda a bit self-serving that last...but with only good intentions in mind.
Anywho...it does seem there is a small demand for some eye candy...and since others do so on other threads, I'll relent today and take some dark room shots from every conceivable angle to show just how "Black" blacks can be with a PJ that only sports 15K:1 Contrast when it splashes it's image on a dark Gray surface that still has positive gain characteristics.
Oh yeah...I'm bettin' the colors will pop too....most likely.
BTW...this year my competition is a $20K+ Sim2 PJ and a 140" Stewart Screen. I'm still getting "I prefer yours..." comments, if for no other reason than the $24,000.00 price difference.
