NEW RANGE JVC 2014 - Page 63

post #1861 of 3981
DLA-RS57U will be my new toy, just waiting for reviews now.
post #1862 of 3981
When I ordered my RS57, my dealer had been told by JVC Canada that it would be shipped by the end of November. Not much time left now, and I'll bet it's more like early December.

Bad news, looks like the first order won't arrive until the second week of December

JVC needs to do a firmware update on all of them before they leave according to my source

I hope I'm wrong, as I'm waiting for an X700

I hope they aren't delayed any more than that. Do you mean they should actually arrive to the customers the second week of December?
I have a calibration/calibration lesson scheduled for Dec 14 and I'd planned on having my RS57 by then.

Thanks for pointing that out Toe. Much appreciated. This is an example of the "little things" I'm concerned about by switching from the VW95. I'm quite sure it will be a much better 2D picture, but at the same time, I'm so pleased with the VW95 picture that even improving this may not be worth it if several little things add up as annoyances. On my RS20 I never really noticed lag though so maybe this would not be an issue for me on the JVC (assuming the lag hasn't gotten worse over the years).

Only time will tell (next month), if the improvements of the new line are a big improvement or small; but I do expect improvement.

Well, that's just the thing. I hardly watch 3D. Maybe one out of every 30 times I turn it on its to watch 3D. But when I do watch 3D, it is such a visual treat and so enjoyable that I really would miss it. Would a much better 2D picture be worth giving that up? Yea, probably. But not if there were then other things that were a step back that added up like lag, fan noise, eshift noise, DI noise (unlikely from early reports), calibration ease and end results, gamma drift (major issues for me with past models - none for me on the Sony) etc etc.

BTW, I find the 3D on the VW95 to be quite exceptional. My unit exhibits very little ghosting once it is warmed up (a good 30-45 min). Others have reported results that aren't as good so maybe its a unit to unit thing or perhaps everyone perceives ghosting differently and is more prone to it. My only gripe is that the 48hz per eye through the glasses with frame packed 3D does leave some noticeable flicker, especially in bright scenes like a bright blue sky on an animated film. That said, I am very sensitive to any type of flicker and I know some people are not.

Sounds like "just two more weeks." wink.gif (Ha, I know I beat some of you other old-timers to it. smile.gif )

I think you should be ok with the 14th

Thanks ScottyH.

I though I would post my question now since this thread looks kind of (temporarily) dead...

I am on the preorder list for the RS57.

I will also need a projector mount.

I would like the projector to be as close to the ceiling as possible.

What projector mount would best suit my needs?

Thanks for your input, I cant wait to see this new JVC in action!

You can't go wrong with a Chief mount. I use it ceiling mounted with my RS40.

We carry and recommend the Chief mounts. You would want the RPA281 or RPMA281. Drop tube length needed is based on ceiling height, screen size and screen placement. If you need help with this, give us a call.

I have the Peerless PRGUNV mount. The ceiling is 2.80 meters high and I want the screen to go as low as 60 centimeters from the floor. The screen is 140" 2.35:1, the height is about 1.40 meters.

Can I mount it as close to the ceiling as I want without issues?
post #1872 of 3981
For best results don't use any horizontal lens shift and place the projector so it's lens is no higher than the top of the screen (using more lens shift may increase chromatic aberrations and/or affect focus uniformity).
post #1873 of 3981
Geof. You have learned well, I am proud of you. One small thing I would add, when you say lens in your recommendation you should say lens center.

Oops, I was thinking center but I sure didn't type it......
Happy Thanksgiving Mark and everyone!

Same to you. As a bird of the same feathers, I have arranged pardons for all the turkeys that post here.

Thanks. Perhaps I should have rephrased the question, since this is a living room setup aesthetics are critical (especially since the projector would be in the middle of the room), so what I should ask is, what is highest I can possibly go regardless of picture quality? I would probably have to live with the electronic CA correction. Can I mount it as close to the ceiling as possible?

I've got mine mounted as close to the ceiling as the PRGUNV mount allows (i.e. no extension tubes) and haven't had any issues. There will still be 2-3 inches between the projector and the ceiling anyway.

If you do not use any horizontal lens shift, the max distance from center of the lens to the top of the image is 0.42"M.

I would like to ask what is the best price for the DLA-RS57? Please PM me :)

That's really important information because it seems like I can't really ceiling mount it as I had planned.

Floor to ceiling is 2.80 meters.
Screen would start at around 60cm from floor
Screen height is 1.39meters

That's a total of 1.99 meters, meaning that my projector would have to be at least at the height of 39 cm from ceiling (2.80-1.39-0.42=0.39).

Mount is around 11 cm and projector is 17.5 high so I guess lens is at the middle, around 9 cm? that means a total of 20 cm, so I need additional 19 cm drop from ceiling. Definitely not ceiling mounted.

Correct, can't be mounted tight to the ceiling with your setup.

What's the formula for determining what the max and min height is for an inverted ceiling mount on the RS49/RS57? Thanks.

QUESTION ABOUT REMOTE CONTROL CODES:

I use an RTI remote control system and my installer will need to program in the new JVC remote codes, once I get it. Usually this is done from a remote codes data base, as there are very few commands to learn
from the supplied remotes, and much wider selection (including discrete/hex codes) from the a data base.

So my question is: generally how soon upon release do the remote control codes start showing up in available data bases? I'm hoping the JVC codes will be available before mid December.

It has 80% vertical lens shift from center of screen.

Thanks. In my case I have a 96x52 screen (106" diag). Top of screen is about 4" from ceiling.

So in this case how does your. 80% number translate into how flush I can mount to the ceiling? Currently the chief mount I use sits so hat the lens is also about 4" from ceiling. Does that work, and if so, will I be using a lot or a little vertical shift?

Also my throw distance from this mount position is about 15' 7". Does this work, and if so is this short, mid, or long throw?

Thanks!

Ric. Your screen height is 52 inches. Upside down using lens shift you could place the lens center at any height from screen center to 30% above the top of the screen or 15.6 inches. Your lens center will be slightly below screen top if your screen is 4 inches from the ceiling. So you will be fine following my long standing mandate that the lens center be no higher than screen top no matter how much lens shift a manufacturer has given you in order to sell more projectors disregarding achieving good lens performance. Of course there are some who mount higher and they will quickly chime it, I mount higher and it looks great but they are obviously not at all critical viewers despite their claims to the contrary.
