Epson Powerlite 6030UB.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone, I am new to the AVS Forum and I need some help getting an idea on this projector. When watching a blu-ray will this projector automatically do 2:35:1, or essentially widescreen but without the black bars? I plan on pairing it with a stewart luxus screen made for cine-wide format. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

To use this projector with a scope screen, you would need an anamorphic lens. It is possible to do without a lens, but it would mean manually adjusting the horizontal and vertical lend shift dials on the projector every time you go from 16:9 to scope and back. Give us a call and we would be happy to help you with your questions and projector pricing.

Is there a projector comparable to this one, that does native 2:35:1 scope without an the add-on anamorph lens?

All of the JVC's for the last several years have lens memory. In fact it is true lens memory, not just shifting the image on the chip like Panny does.

An anamorphic lens is your best bet to get the best resolution with almost no lumen loss. There are no native 2:35 chips out there. Epson had one planed but It never hit market not sure it ever will.

Check out the 5030ub thread. Same projector, just a different color.

...thanks, fatherford, but...there must be more than a color difference for that extra $1,000.00...

Here's the difference for the $1000, but the PQ is going to be identical between both models.

  • PC 6030UB also features ISF calibration to customize specific settings in 2D Mode and two anamorphic lens modes (stretch and squeeze) to enable 2.35:1 anamorphic viewing without an external processor and comes with spare lamp and ceiling mount
  • Pro Cinema 6030UB comes with an extended three-year parts and labor limited warranty (5030 is 2 years)

so you get the black paint job, a ceiling mount, a spare lamp, 1 year extra warranty and the ability to use an A-lens for the extra $$.

Also the dust cover on the 6030, THX mode and certification. But the main thing is the mount is worth $350 the bulb is $300 the pro warrantee is whatever you think is worth I think it is worth a decent amount since it goes to 3 years. Also the IFC color balancing menus and pro set up you can tweak the colors and settings in the 6030 to get it perfect. But at the hart it is the same color chip and bulb. Also resale on the 6030 is easer because of the anamorphic mode. I sell more 6030 than 5030 but then again I am a custom installer and do pro set ups. Both are great projectors though.

What do you mean by dust cover? The little motorized part that closes off the lens when not in use?

5030 has a THX mode.

I curious to see the menu, from the 5030/6030 I saw they had all the same options for color settings.

Sorry yes the 5030 now has THX I am stuck on the 5020 my brain was not awake yet before coffee. The dust cover as it was called in the past or cable cover is a cover that protects and hides the cables it does not come with the 5030 it come with the 6030 though it is mostly ascetics though but makes it look cleaner. They both have the motorized lens cover.

I have not gone through the menus yet on the new models so I am not sure what is different other than all the color calibration stuff which makes it real easy to access and the anamorphic modes. I suspect everything else is the same.

I work at Modia Home Theater and I'm waiting for the 6030 to come in so i can my AVS HD disk to run a decent color calibration with some filters, however my current filters have gone downhill, does anyone have a suggestion for color filters, or glasses?

Does the vertical stretch work in 3D
Also since the lens is recessed a bit has anyone had a problem using it with an anamorphic lens ( maybe 6020 owners can answer that). I have the Prismasonic 5000 lens.
Thanks in advance
