Read the damn paper and think. Basically the paper gives a designer the way to maximize contrast and contrast is not just on off contrast. And what do you guys know about contrast once we leave the realm of on off. A little but you can't generallly can't spout comparative numbers. this trounces that.
There are two things a designer must be concerned with. The lens, its quality, and its cost. Namely its cost. And two flexibility of placement or you won't sell a lot of machines. Obviously there are other things. But if you cab spend a lot of money on the lens, you can negate some of the effects of other contrast lowering compromises. The marantz used a very expensive lens. The planar and Samsung ditto. The Sim2s etc use expensive lenses. A way to make up for choices that lower contrast is using a DI Using a DC4 chip over a DC3, an expensive thing to do for a designer.
Don't worry. Whatever DLP you have is great. And you will find it satisfying but you will consistently be reminded by fan boys and othesr, it won't be the JVC blacks and you know deep down in your heart that you have failed miserasbly because for 2D its all about the blacks.
Read the paper. I don't think a projector has been built using a DLP to maximize the contrast over all other considerations.
Think about the projectors that require large offsets. There are cheap and use cheap lenses.
Using a good lens allows one to make contrast compromising choices.
remember the white paper is not a tell you how much. If you do this it will cost you X contrast.
Its for designers. Its not for you guys who want in their hearts to be designer and thing that they are brighter than the designers and engineers. Those that want to employ their superior intelligence to solving the puzzle, to understand. Its harsh.
You know what's harsh. A low income Marywhowho salesman from CA called me last night seeking advice on what projector to buy. Namely he could buy one of the Optomas on Ebay which had a $2500 or so MSRP for $1100 and use it on his ebay $40 screen. Big screen too with the specs giving a range of gains hovering around 1.0. The guy had no clue about offsets, He lucked pout there being about 4 ft above screen top available. Guy didn't know exact screen size. And I am suppose to know about cheap projectors.
what I am an expert on are CHEAP forum members.
Not you Moo Moo. Just a statement to err increase the contrast.
