I just installed a 144" scope, BD SI screen in my multipurpose room. Next step is to upgrade the projector, most likely with a Sony 1000es , most likely after CEDIA this year. I know it's the "wrong" time to buy with HDMI 2.0 around the corner - maybe I'll wait a bit more.
In the meantime, I was wondering if anyone has experience with this projector and an anamorphic lens? My installer is saying that since the projector is bright and pixels are effectively scaled upto to 4k pixels, you won't lose brightness or see pixelation even on this large a screen by zooming with lens memory. That's would of course be super convenient, not to mention cost effective. Thoughts?
Also, would you recommend an external scaler with this projector?
