Did any of you folks who attended CEDIA make it to Digital Projection's private screening room set up at the Hyatt (at least I think it was the Hyatt) ? The had two 3 Chip units displaying side by side. The 4100gv has a resolution of 1024 by 768. I am not sure the model number of the other unit but the resolution was 1280 by 1024 and it utilized improved optics and dark chip techonology for a contrast of 1200:1. Both units looked outstanding with both HD, sourced from a JVC 30000 and DVD, a Harmon/Kardon no frills player processed by Faroudja NR scalers. The 4100gv was using a 16:9 Stewart Greyhawk at 12 foot wide while the other model utilized a 2.35:1 Stewart Greyhawk at 14 foot wide. They were both VERY cinematic especially the unit utilizing the constant height method. Viewing them side by side, you could definately see better blacks on the higher rez model but both images were beautiful to look at. List, including lenses, is $50,000 and $80,000 respectively. I am in the midst of a major home theater remodel and was planning on using a calibrated G15 with a 14 foot wide high gain 16:9 Stewart screen. Well after the demo, I am changing my plans a bit. I am going for the 4100gv with ISCO lens and a 2.35:1 Stewart Greyhawk @ 15 foot wide. Thank God for home equity loans!
