InFocus IN5535 WUXGA 1920x1200 - Questions for Home Theater use - will it be Great or Bad!?


http://www.infocus.com/projectors/large-venue-projectors/infocus-in5530-projector-series/infocus-in5535l-projector?page=1

To start off i really dident had to have to open this tread, but now i have too,

There´s this guy, i follow on YouTube, he just got this and made a video about how great it was, and he explained some minor stuff in this video on YouTube about how this was True cinema quality.
no banding, and features.

and from what i have learned and seen/heard projectors made for data have several issues when it comes to movies.
So i wrote this guy that he would get a better image quality whit the current 1080p native ones like the Jvc or other like it.

i wrote him, that this;'

hmm oki, i wonder why you would get this then, as its a office/conference model and not a cinema one
1 its 10Db higher then most Jvc Pj´s, them beeing 19Db
2 its NATIVE 1920 x 1200 so it internal scales the pic, you can call it trimm, its still after process the image.
3 Optics is not better, not even close, it might be same, but it dosent even matter "later i found out he even got a anamorfic lens on it".
4 color wheel is 2x speeds and uses wrong order for movies
IN5535 colorwheel has six segments: red, green, blue, cyan, yellow, and white/clear. The color-wheel would need to be replaced with the six segment RGBRGB wheel used in SP8602 and a new TI sequence code written. Sequence code is not the same thing as system firmware. It is the code that determines what the DMD does versus color-wheel rotational position and input signal at any given moment in time.
5 the color wheel is optimized for data, whits means larger color slots to produce a brighter image. This extra brightness comes at a price; the ability to produce vivid, highly saturated, colors is reduced. The relative sizes of the segments are chosen by engineers designing the projector. Larger white segments increase the maximum lumens that can be output by the projectors, but color fidelity is compromised. aka washed out blacks/shadows details
6 the whole build and internals is made for data output.


The Jvc models are some of the best for movies money can buy, its gonna beat this x2 over, you can talk fancy talk all you want on the YouTube,about banding , options to dail in image ect, but this is NOT build for movies, and its not build for blurays, im sorry but your dead wrong.
Just think for a sec, Why people DONT buy this for home theater, there are reasons why your one of the only ones, its not the reason you think, as you think you found a hidden gem, whits you have not.
Coming from your old 1280x800 " yea he had a data native one 720p before this" one i get you think image is great, and you don't have a room optimizes for movies viewing, this is just so wrong on many levels, your room is not good for viewing plain painted walls, you data pj making it worse, esp fireing off 7000 lumens from 3-4 meters, plus a room that will bounce around the lumens from walls onto image, its gonna produce a washed out image + down scaled internaly Vs a real native 1920x1080 its gonna get r*****on image quality.


And back and forth we talk, mostly he just says im wrong and its true cinema quality, and im giving him fanboi talk, ect ect whitout going into too much detail, this is the overall questions i have.

Did i miss something is the In5535 true Cinema quality and the newer tech is not like the older!??


do reply in this tread i want answers!! im confused now.

probably a really good projector for powerpoint on a 300" screen and with uncontrolled lighting. stop wasting your time... there will be no convincing this guy.

well i got questions now.

i could post some of his reply's, but i don't want to mock him, as it´s evolving big statements about why he think he knows best. while he don't come whit really info on why, he goes in a different direction and tells me how he work on this and that tech.

this is one of the replys.
"I do consulting for THX, I know the engineers at JVC, Panasonic, Optoma, Texas Instruments, LG, and InFocus.

You are wrong.


And usealy hes a good guy, he clever, plus makes oki videos ect ect, so this is why i got questions now.

seriously... don't waste your time. anyone that thinks a single 0.7" DLP 6000 lumen projector makes a good home theater projector is not living in the real world. Unless TI has developed a new DLP technology and not announced it (unlikely) and InFocus has started using $5k lenses in their large venue projectors, he is posing as an expert on this one and will defend the indefensible until you are blue in the face. I feel like I've already lost precious minutes even replying again wink.gif

He's employing two tactics of con men (NOT say he is one, he's just using their tools.) One is diversion to another subject. The other is a "snow job", presenting impressive sounding information that really has nothing to do with the issue at hand. Don't be fooled by him.

heres the video

and like i said i like his videos, and he have done some clever ones in the past.

This is a business projector for a very large screen. This is NOT a home theater projector......at all. Unless your home theater is a school auditorium and you just need to light up a very large screen with poor contrast.

yea i told him that this on 3-4 meters would not be so great.



anyone got a insight on why this guy insist on its so great, other then its his and he bought it,
ne now told me that the InFocus 5530 series is what is in George Lucas's home theater (he has two of them with circular polarizers)
well this is what he says.
post #9 of 9
It is unlikely that George Lucas would use el cheapo projectors.
I would expect to see something like a $30K runco or sim2 in his own theaters.

This guy sounds like a poseur and you seem oddly fixated on him.
