(I have a projection set up that goes over ten feet wide, 105" diagonal for scope can still be quite an impressive experience).
not sure I follow
105" would be smaller than what I currently have
edgelit LED would be worse quality than I currently have
UHD and scope format is pretty cool though.
I just don't understand why they keep pushing edgelit LED's at us. especially for something that may never see 'normal' production. is somebody really going to spend (I'm guessing) well over 30grand for a tv and be willing to deal with clouding and flashlighting to save a couple grand? edgelit LED is a deal breaker for me. it is, without question, the worst method(as in most difficult to get right) of backlighting on the market today. no concept, premier, or even high end display should be built around that system. imo
the IDEA is exciting though. if this were a 100+" scope format UHD plasma made by Panasonic, or OLED, or heck even an advanced full array LED with plenty of local dimming zones, I'd be drooling all over the place
