DLP is sharper, has flatter (near perfect) gray scale, near perfect white field uniformity, higher ANSI contrast which is needed for that 3d look, and more light output. It's only weaknesses are absolute resolution which depending on screen size and seating distance my be moot and absolute black level.
very interesting and true. CRT only has around 70-200:1 ansi while able to reach 50,000:1 on off. i just wonder in real life what is the perceived ansi contrast when you just look at a street in daylight ? for instance.
3DLP however has a lot of work to do give massive on off contrast or native contrast, especially as brigthness rises. So far it seems the SHARP Z20000 1DLP sets a record in ansi contrast also, around 800:1
i think we'll see this this year:
- a big JVC 4K with brigthness and high (not as high) native contrast like the HD1
- Sony's reply
No real news inthe 3DLP front though Panasonic new 2K 3DLP $75K is a beast with wonderful colorimetry. seen it at the ISE in February.
it would make sense however "only" with a scope screen for instance, from 4 to 7meters wide.
