4000 lumen Sony Laser projector VPL-FHZ55 - Page 3

post #61 of 79
Thanks for the video. How many calibrated lumens did you measure?
post #62 of 79
1026 lumens on 90inches screen size with 1346:1 contrast ratio (eco mode after calibration)
post #63 of 79
not bad on the lumens! did you measure normal mode?
post #64 of 79
Wow, that's quite a drop from 4000...

Although if the same laser source is used in a home theatre SXRD model that wouldn't be too bad
post #65 of 79
Yeah the 4000 was obviously going to be waay off from the start.. over 1000 in eco mode and calibrated sounds really promising to me.

The lens shift changed the sharpness of the text over portions of the range. Rather visable in the video.

At that contrast, is the black acceptable?
post #68 of 79
No contrast is very poor. I was curious to review this Model but definitly it can't be use as an Home Theater Model.

Seems like a reasonable start for calibrated lumens for a laser projector... hopefully this is the start of something really game changing over the next couple of years.

I have the same hope. smile.gif

I thought the black level and CR looked poor when I saw it demo'ed at Infocomm back in June, but the viewing conditions were certainly not very good. Thanks for the hands-on observations.

How does this compare to the Acer k750, Viewsonic pro 9000 or the Panasonic PT-RZ370U??? Contrast and color wise?
post #74 of 79
Those Models can be use for a Home Theater Purpose (K750, Pro 9000 and PT-RZ470). I have reviewed all of them here www.audiovideohd.fr

Hey Kraine, nice review like always. Maybe you should start measure the energy consumption of each model you test from now on, that would be great.

the big hope is HD91
waiting your review Krane and thanks alot smile.gif

Greetings,

I thought that a 4000 lumens Laser/LED projector might be a solution for my church which badly needs new projectors. Now I see that after calibration it isn't even close to 4K lumens.

Can anyone recommend a projector under 4 thousand dollars that is around 5,000 lumens and would work for a brightly lit church area? I see Sony, Panasonic, BenQ...and more. It seems there are many projectors out there. Opinions?

You need a business projector rather than a home-theater projector.

Start a new thread if you want more info than what I post here, because don't want to go too OFF-TOPIC, but here is a good start.

I would think for a church you should go with a business LCD projector, as DLP's will probably bother some people with RBE when you have that many random people in the crowd watching.

They don't make projectors (not even business projectors) in that price range that are near 5000 lumens AFTER calibration, you can get near 5000 lumens before calibration.
You might be able to find something used in that price range. The only way you can get 4000 lumens in the NEW MARKET after calibration under $4000 is by double-stacking (find 2 projectors that can do 2500 lumens In best mode, and overlapping the images with lens shift, this could work, but I'd probably just use a non-best mode on a single projector instead). I personally wouldn't worry about calibration in a church, just find a projector that can do 4000 -5000 lumens and have a decent picture. Check review sites.

Now you can find projectors rated up to 5000 lumens under $4000, or rated at up to about 6000-7000 lumens for $5000 - $6000, but this is BEFORE calibration.

6000 Lumens (Before Calibration)
Epson PowerLite Pro G6750WUNL RATED at 6000 lumens for an MSRP of $5699.

5200 Lumens Before Calibration
Epson PowerLite Pro G6550WUNL MSRP of $4699

All 5000 Lumens Before Calibration
LCD = Panasonic PT-EZ570UL MSRP of $3695
DLP = Optoma eh501 (about $1700 street)
DLP = Viewsonic Pro8520HD

4000-4500 Lumens Before Calibration
DLP = Optoma th1060p (about $1300 street)
DLP = Benq sh910 (about $1300 street)
