The PJ loses 50% on Color1 - another 50% at long throw - and another 50% when you fade the lamp - it can be very very easy to underdrive the wrong size/gain screen and put it in the wrong room without light control.
Well I am at short Throw, Cinema 1, and only 65 Hours on th lamp.
I also have total light control.
85" 2.35 Inch screen.
Also with Iris off the Pany's black levels are horrible.
Do you just go by the book and numbers only or actually setup things to how you like the image to look?
Sorry, but out of the box on color 1 loses way to much shadow detail. If you have a Pany around your office try this once. (Don't even worry about the numbers for a moment) Watch a movie with a lot of dark scenes use Color 1 for a bit, then switch over to my settings once and you will see how much more shadow detail is in the picture. I may not be right at REC709 gamma curve. but I can now see the information that is on the DISK, and what the Pany at Default Color 1 can't show me.
