But not sure I'd have it any other way. Approximately 75% of the movies I watch are scope and I get the nice masking of my screen. I don't really mind the smaller 91" 16:9 screen size for other movies.
I like immersion, but if I went to the theater and there were two seats left one in the front row and one in the back row I would take the back row. It would have very little impact on me enjoying the movie.

Given CIH and a single row fixed seat location I would error on the side of less immersion. Most likely between 2.5-3.0 X SH.

Having a variable immersion setup has given me the chance to experiment with family members. No one has ever complained about a lower immersion they just enjoy. If I get ridiculously large for say TV I will get the can you back this down a little comment.

My first row is 11 feet from a 130 235/1 eulenvision screen. If that is too close for some of my guests i have 2 rows behind that. Everybody is happy that way. After going from a 16/9 screen i could never go back.

My setup is about the same - just under 10' away from a 128" 2.35:1 screen. Except I have one row. So anyone that thinks they are too close has to drink until they have tunnel vision and the screen recedes.

Obviously the DCR would be optimal, but it costs as much or more than an NX7.


What do you think is the minimum brightness (in fL) for HDR with DTM?

There seem to be two camps. Those who say 30 + fL still needed, and those who say more traditional SDR brightness (16-20 fL) will look nearly identical with good DTM.
