Mitsubishi HC3000 MSRP $2,995 - Page 9

post #241 of 3491
Well, hopefully Evan's got the right information from Mits, as he'd be hard put to determine which DMD is in there otherwise. I'm on the list to get one for review, but I don'y know how soon that will be.

rcrymes, stay safe man. Hope you and all your buddies are back home soon.

when is this pj scheduled to hit stores in the US?
post #243 of 3491
It seems that Evan saw some weakness with the Panasonic and the Mits which were sent to him. This has delayed his reviews. I emailed him and he stated that he does not want to make judgements until he received second units for testing. The Mits has arrived and the Panny is on its way. I respect him for waiting. This does not mean that anything was wrong the the orignal units, Evan just wasn'ts to be sure before he posts his reviews on Projector Central.

Thanks Mike. We are all comming home together. I've been very lucky, aside from one of my soldiers getting shrapnel from a mortar. He is ok. He's just going to have problems at the airport from now on when going through the metal detectors. I'm happy for what we have accomplished and even more happy that we get to come home.


Thanks for the info Rwestley. I will stop looking so ofen.

heh... So long as it's just almost as excited, I think you're OK. Now, if you'd said you were more excited about the HT than the family, then you might be a bad person. As it is, you're good.

Just heard that the HC3000 will be available on the street in 7-10 days.

Anybody heard more info on this PJ?

Any other reviews available or pending besides projector central's or cine4home 's?
post #247 of 3491
Product brochure here.
post #248 of 3491
I guess that brochure answers the DC2 question.
post #249 of 3491
Certainly seems to
post #250 of 3491
I don't think the hc3000 is going to be worth the price...i'd rather spend the extra 700$ and buy a h78 w/ dc3 tech... not dc2 like the hc3000 has...i've seen that chip in action --its really cool.

I guess the question is whether the addition of BrilliantColor outweighs the DC2/DC3 issue.

Great, please report more on the following issues:

1. How good is Brilliant Color? How different is it from normal gamma enhancement? (for example, changing from 2.2 to 2.5)

2. The IRIS thing, how does it work? Open/Close two position only? Auto IRIS? Dynamic Black by TI? Please measure the peak white/black in the different IRIS position.

3. ANSI contrast?

4. dithering? PWM? false contour in motion?

5. de-interlacing? 3-2? 2-2? How does it handle a region 2 DVD like Armageddon with lots of motion 2-2?

6. How does it perform with HQV DVD test disc?

7. what is its 1080i resolution using 1080i test pattern? Is it stable on 1080i de-interlacing? Or just take 1080i and show 540p and scale to 720p?

8. How does it utilize the extra 48 pixels or the 768p resolution?

Hope it's not too much to ask!!

1. HC3000 does not have brilliant color, but 5speed 6segment RGB colorwheel with bigger red segment. The colors are brilliant anyway

2. 2 position only, and no autoiris.

It does have BrilliantColor. Grubert posted the finalized product brochure a few posts above yours. Here it is again:

post #258 of 3491
my take on this current confusion is that the hc3000 in fact does use part of the Brilliant color config, but does not use the designed wheel for it, rather a 6 segment wheel like in other HT projectors.

Ok, I guess it has Brilliantcolor then I'm also confused when it comes to the colorwheel...

Hello. Does someone have the HC 3000 from you already? One can already which about the image quality say. Thanks.
post #263 of 3491
Little more information:
http://www.mitsubishielectric.co.jp/...ion/index.html

12bit floating point of full 10bit processing?

What's the deal with "sport" mode? Less motion artifacts?
post #264 of 3491
Has there been any word in regards to the HC3000's offset? I have a low ceilinged basement and cannot handle much offset without the use of keystone correction. I generally prefer dlp to lcd so I am willing to wait for the reviews to roll in but if the offset is too severe I can cross it of the list now and save time.

It's in a chart in the PDF linked to a few posts above. Looks like it's not good for you if can't have much offset.
post #266 of 3491
kosha -- Generally the "Sport" mode jacks up the brightness so it can be watched with room lights on (or some daylight in the room).
post #267 of 3491
Bummer, Looks like the offset will be too much for my low ceiling. Looks like a Panasonic AE900, Sanyo Z4, or Benq PE7700 for me.

Mike,

Can you pls translate this?

From the pdf file:

"off set axis 3:-1 up (No variable lens shift)..."

Edit: I get it.. the lens, middle of it, must be -33% (below the bottom of the screen if table mounted) off the screen height, is this correct? If so, it's a very large offset.
post #269 of 3491
I was just going by the Hd dimension in the projection chart on the bottom left of page 4.
post #270 of 3491
Thought I saw somewhere in there mention of a 38 degree offset. I could be wrong though.
