My screen size is 110 inch diagonal. It is a Stewart FireHawk 1 st generation with a gain of 1.3 The projector is 5 meters from the screen and the viewing distance is similar
The MPC has no artifacts on a static test pattern but it does looks slightly softer than with no MPC.
When engaged it increases the noise of the projector. Non a high pitched whine but similar to fan noise. The controls do make some difference but again the effect is quite subtle
The big issue for me is quite serious motion artifacts. I don't recall seeing anything like that on the X900 but I could have missed it.
I am definitely staying with it off for 1080 sources.
I believe that the CMD is the same as the previous model. I am seeing good improvement on on motion blurring when set to low. The high setting introduces artifacts.
I cannot fathom the purpose of this control. When set to high it produces severe ghosting on moving letters. The low setting is less pronounced but it still makes things worse than without it
The still is some slight smearing but it is much less than the previous projectors that I have had. It is certainly not a concern
Hopefully I will be able to measure this today or tomorrow and will post the results
I figured the motion enhance would be a bust. Sounds like what was described by earlier reports. I wish JVC would offer a simple dark frame insertionmode which would actually, you know, enhance the motion. Maybe the hit in brightness would have been too much on the previous generations, but this year's line seems to have brightness to spare.
About the motion artifacts you described with "MPC". Can you clarify? What exactly are you seeing. Maybe it is related to something else? Technically, Eshift and MPC are separate animals. EShift does the pseudo 4K while MPC is just the image enhancements that can be applied while using Eshift or not using Eshift. Can you describe what motion artifacts you are seeing with this?
Related to that, on the previous generation, using Eshift while also using CMD low caused a decrease in motion resolution. Also, CMD low causes horizontal banding artifacts that are usually seen with motion in certain scene conditions. When you have noticed the "artifacts with motion" with "MPC", were you also using CMD low by any chance, or did you have CMD off when evaluating MPC and Eshift?
So, can you describe the motion artifacts you say you are seeing with MPC? What are the MPC settings when you see this? Can you test this, keeping the same MPC settings, with Eshift off and then Eshift on? Also, can to test with Eshift on but switching between your current MPC setting and then with the MPC setting all at 0?
Of course, please make sure the CMD is set to off since it introduces artifacts (at least it does in the previous generations).
