18 Gbps might have looked useless at first but it is really not unfortunately.

Has anyone else had problems with discoloration with their 665 projectors? I have four 665 projectors and three of them are starting to show some sort of color shift. Below are pictures from the four projectors. Two of them are showing a green and purple haze on the edges of the checkered pattern, one is showing a blue and red haze, and one is fine.


Any thoughts on how to fix this?

Thanks!

This looks like a panel alignment issue. Have you checked yours?

Starting to show, as in did not show this before? Are you letting the projector fully warm up, before putting up test patterns? Need to warm up an hour, before evaluating with test patterns. Once warmed up, then adjust convergence.

It can take up to an hour for these units to completely "settle". The panels start up cold and get warmer and warmer until they finally reach a resting temperature. As they heat up they shift/warp and will show some misconvergence. If you do use the software convergence correction system, be sure to set it long after the projector has warmed up.

The projectors had been on for several hours when I took the pictures. I meant "starting to show" in that I don't remember this being a problem when the projectors were new.

I figured out how to adjust the panel alignment and that seems to be really helping!

Or, any Youtube video at 60p up-scaled by your player to 4K and sent to your projector will max out your HDMI throughput at 17.8Gbps.

Or, watching anything at 8, 10 or 12bit / 60p at 4:2:2. Requires 17.8Gbps.

12bit 4k/60 4:4:4 is way past 18gbps HDMI throughput topping out at 72Gbps.
Yeah, seriously!

Last I checked, YT was only 8 bit 4K support. But I know they do upgrade frequently. I've been traveling for a week so if YT has now offered 4K at 12 Bit 4:2:2 color 60 fps in the last week, I missed it.

As for having your player upscale published content, that is not what I am talking about. ALL UHD blu Ray disks today are using 10 bit color 3840 24P with HDR. This does not require 18GBs and I would not spend the kind of money for a projector just to upscale 4K content to these higher sampling and bit rates. I do not object to you if you think it is imperative, but one person made a joke they would riot over it. That to me is silly importance to something I consider a complaint just to complain.

Again wake me up when the industry stops publishing content in the present UHD and I NEED to upgrade just to watch a new released movie.

BTW- I have my player output the content in native so all UHD is seen as it was produced, save for the BT2020 problem. I don't think anyone here is seeing true BT2020 yet. The only upscale I do is in the 665ES and with less than UHD content. It looks great!

Please give me a link to YT that is 12 bit 4K. Don't just say watching "anything" because that isn't content, that's science fiction until it becomes fact with actual content. I want to see what content I can't play that makes the 18GBs so compelling now.

The real problem is not the sources but the players. Take for example the Samsung UHD player: cannot force the output to 4:2:0 @ 10 bit to match the source. Or the Xbox One S in 4K: cannot select the bitdepth and the chroma.

Sony's HDMI chips are fine as long as you can match the output to the source as, and I agree with you, you don't realistically need 4K @ 12 bit 4:4:4.

But still, as I said previously, I am still wondering why Sony decided to go for a sub par HDMI chip on projectors that cost more than 7000 bucks. Makes no sense. It only makes sense in my opinion if you want to propose a budget device for the mass.

Until 18GBs is compelling due to all content, or even some content being released, I consider it like insisting all cars must go 400mph; fact is there are no roads that will allow a car to travel at 400mph, so why do I need to own a car that does 400mph?

The whole 18GBs requirement argument to me is absurd!
Don,

Every single video game coming out within the next 2 months that are 4K HDR 60FPS is the exact content that I am talking about......... Gears of War 4 for xbox one and several games for ps4 Including the new Modern Warfare You can find a list of these games online if you care to look. Thats why I need to own a 400 mph car

Desktop PC can IMMENSELY look better with 4:4:4 chroma. Also video games and any type of graphic also look IMMENSELY better when the chroma subsampling render rate is higher. It should also be noted that the UHD BD spec is not forced into using 4:2:0 or 10 bit. In the future, the spec is open to using up to 16 bit color and up to 4:4:4 chroma subsampling rates. At some point I'm sure we'll see 12 bit video and/or higher chroma subsampling rates be used for UHD BD and having a higher throughput input will help. So at the moment, video games and anyone rendering graphics or using an HTPC type setup with their 4K projector can get an immediate upgrade in image quality if 4:4:4 chroma is available.

Here you go everyone Sony just announced their new projector that does everything that the 665 doesn't do and what we have all (those who complained) been complaining about.

Well now, was this expected ? Will be interesting to see what the full specs are, at a glance doesn't look like much of a bump beyond the 665 really . If the boards are upgraded to 18gbs, then the move is in the right direction especially with 4K on board.

The Biggest Bump is that it is capable of 4K HDR 60p whereas the 665 can only do 24p which is only good for movies but not tv or games or streaming etc. ya know the stuff I spend 99% of my time watching or playing. haha

While I don't believe it does everything so many are whining about, but it seems to offer those who will spend a few thousand every year for tiny improvements.

It certainly doesn't seem to offer my wish list-
3D 4K in 8bit color ( I can produce this but can't play it )
lens covered when off
Air intake dust filter

The 60p in 4K with HDR is nice for the gamers but I'm not into super high quality gaming. My gaming needs are satisfied with 1080p 60 since my grandkids are more into content that color quality. Personally, I just watch movies and my own content.

The biggest advantage I see with the 675ES is it will have it's own thread here and we 665ES owners can get back to helping each other with tips and tricks and, hopefully say goodbye to the JVC trolling.

There's no 4K 3D standard so it's not expected that it would support such a feature. If there's no standard in place how does one implement such a feature? This unit is based off of the the 6xx series chassis so also it's not expected that it would receive a motorized lens cover. The light engine is sealed quite well, so the issue of dust inside the projector isn't of much concern. I also suspect that adding a filter would necessitate high static pressure fans which could potentially dramatically increase the fan noise. I don't think people would be willing to make that trade off. A simple in room quiet air filter (or even filters in an HVAC system) should suffice at keeping dust issues a non-issue.

Oh and the "trolls" will leave the thread when the projector is discussed accurately. You'll notice the so called "trolls" only talk about the JVC when false or misleading posts are made.

3D 4K would be nice wouldn't it though. First I heard it would never happen now I'm hearing Maybe. We can only hope.


BTW, I just watched Pan again, this time in 2D + 4K . I know you liked that one in 3D but I did not. 4K tonight was far better for me the colors blew me away. I was running HDR ->SDR REC. 2020 WCG with some settings tweaked on the Lumagen Pro to boost the gamma . Of course I do have the JVC RS600 , I'm not sure if that puts me into Troll territory. But hey, could very well be back in the Sony camp some day would just need to have my wish of another 1000 lumens from the 675 first. Nice what they have done, but I'm not likely to shift for what they are offering. If they had hinted this was coming early summer I would have waited and very likely would have gone that route. I'm on the other side of the fence now for a while now, you know, the "DARK SIDE."

Does anyone know if the 665 can electronically shift the image up/down the panel? We were given the 665 by Sony for our CEDIA booth, and I have a new masking screen that uses a single top mask that eats up double-letter box when in scope. This requires the scope image to shift to the bottom of the frame so the mask can eat up the top. However, relying on the mechanical lens shift is arduous.

Any slicker solution? I can trigger the screen with 12vDC, relays, RS232 (though not an expert on that), and the K-Scape I think just does RS232.

I'm going to see if I can grab a Lumagen, but any thoughts that could help? The demo is otherwise coming along quite nicely. Ken Whitcomb really has the 665 dialed in nicely.

Cheers,
Chris

The improvements in the 675 will be the same of the 550. The contrast will 350.000, with a slight better black level than the 665. two HDMI 2.0a. It won`t offer 18gbps. All that was discussed here about the 665 applies to the 675. As far as I'm concerned such improvements will be extended to the 665 also, except the revised upscaler and the the small contrast enhancement. In this scenario, it`s not the pj for 665 owners to upgrade, but for the ones who have older pjs. Of course I may be wrong, and something more comes, but I really doubt!

Really looking forward to use the HDR control. My picture needs some brightness.

This requires the scope image to shift to the bottom of the frame so the mask can eat up the top. However, relying on the mechanical lens shift is arduous.

Any slicker solution? I can trigger the screen with 12vDC, relays, RS232 (though not an expert on that), and the K-Scape I think just does RS232.

I'm going to see if I can grab a Lumagen, but any thoughts that could help? The demo is otherwise coming along quite nicely. Ken Whitcomb really has the 665 dialed in nicely.

Cheers,

You can save your lens shift position as a custom "position", so you should only have to set it once and then you can return to that with the position button on the remote. I don't think the 665 has any electronic adjustments to picture placement. It doesn't even have any keystone correction, which I could really use.

All that was discussed here about the 665 applies to the 675. As far as I'm concerned such improvements will be extended to the 665 also, except the revised upscaler and the the small contrast enhancement. In this scenario, it`s not the pj for 665 owners to upgrade, but for the ones who have older pjs. Of course I may be wrong, and something more comes, but I really doubt!
Walter I am hoping the 665 gets the same firmware patch as well. Hopefully it allows 4k HDR 10 bit at 60p do you think this will happen?

4K 10 bit at 60 won't happen. This is a hardware upgrade.

You should at least try. But you'll have to check this with your retailer.

I think I have a problem.

I decided to do an SDR calibration in low lamp mode. About half way through the test patterns, I noticed the image was flickering quite badly at random moments. Almost like a slightly loose video cable.

Switching to high lamp mode resolves the flickering but after switching back to low again the flickering comes back after about 10 mins.

Oddly, my previous PJ started doing the same thing (JVC rs40). Shortly before I sold it last year.

I'm using a ub900 with the spear and munsil disk but I can see the flickering with any other movie I try.

Is it lamp? It's only got 100hrs on it!
Unit is under warranty still.

Its a known Sony issue. Run it in high mode for a few hours should sort itself out.
