as much as the Lumagens rule I don't think any of them but the Radiance would suite what you need, the reason I say this is because they are limited to 8-bit RGB DVI output, your PJ can take a 10-bit 4:2:2 HDMI input, which has much better PQ than 8-bit RGB DVI, Radiance delivers this
so I guess you are really in a pickle, DVDO has your 4:2:2 output but no CMS, greyscale, gamma etc., the Lumagen models are limited to 8-bit RGB DVI, and the Radiance is pretty expensive although I have seen some sub 3K sale listings on classifieds on AVS, videogon etc.
although the other Lumagen models are not going to look like ****, far from it actually, I am just way too picky, difference between 8-bit RGB and 10-bit 4:2:2 is not much, but it is there
