I am ready to upgrade from a JVC RS2 (actually the pioneer fpj1 which is a rebadged pioneer). Looking intently at the JVC RS57. Have a few questions.
1. This is not a true 4K projector, correct? The native resolution is 3840x2160? Is this not true 4K?
When you feed a true 4K signal to the $20000 sony projector it takes that signal and displays it natively? What happens when you feed the RS57 a true 4K signal?
If this isn't a true 4k projector should I wait for such a thing from JVC? Or is it likely to be 20 grand? Could probably go to 8 or 9 thousand street for a projector, but not much more.
2. Also a little confused about the eshift. Does it perform some kind of dithering to make the pixel edges less apparent?
3. Lastly, I am planning on getting the JVC RF 3D emitter recommended by JVC. Is there a cheaper set of 3D glasses that will work as well as the recommended JVCs for $179.99? I need four pairs and don't wanna drop another $800 on glasses if I don't have to.
Sorry for the obviously basic questions but still confused. Have read all 31 pages of the owners thread and the projector manual on the jvc site and still confused.
It's not a true 4k projector, not because it's not the full 4k resolution but also because the panels are actually only 1080p. It supports 4k inputs a uses e-shift to product a finer image, but the panels are stlil 1080p.
e-shift, as far as I understand, places the LCD panels at a half a pixel intervals therefore eliminating the pixel structure you get with many projectors.
You can use the XPand 105-RF-X1 3D classes, there are basically the same as the JVC glasses but they are polarized vertically instead of horizontally therefore the brightness might be reduced at around 10% depending on your screen.
