Seriously, the colors either come very close to meeting Rec 709 or if off say by a de of greater than 3, they are off. But once you are calibrated close the say Rec 709, you can not make the colors richer without mis calibration. Does richer mean more saturated than a color should be?
I may be the one that used the "richer" reference to color. Members have been asking questions about the picture quality of our newly aquired 500/600 projectors and
I personally have struggled to answer some of the questions in a realistic straight forward way without exaggerating my remarks. So saying I am "blown away" for example is
not the case , I have been very impressed so for though and that is saying something coming from a HW50ES. This is the only upgrade I have made from one projector to another where
the difference has impressed me enough to justify some positive, noteworthy comments.
So, saying the color is richer is just one of the impressions I have experienced, to be honest it is hard to find the right words to describe what I experience . Simply put
the image is better, has a more immersive and realistic quality. It is brighter, yea....better blacks, definitely , contrast is certainly better and the colors, well, they do not look any poorer.
Actually , now that I think of it, I would describe the colors as more "vivid." Then again vivid and richer are pretty darn close, are they not ? Edited by roxiedog13 - 11/26/13 at 5:51am
