and these are just with the suggested settings samsung/jvc not even optimised to get the best of headroom as yet or any further tweaking on my part as yet
Al, my projector does not
have the extended colour gamut mate, that's what you are seeing with all the extra colours. Get a 300ES and then have a look
The other thing I keep talking about is Reality Creation on the Sony units, you need to remember I use this daily no matter what I am watching, and with 1080p Blurays it looks fugen fantastic and essentially almost 4k the upscaling is that good, I took heaps of shots to prove it, and even one or two of the stone cold nutters on DTV flat out agreed with me to his shock and horror that Sicario actually resolved more detail with RC on my 1080p vs UHD copy. So, when I move to an UHD disk, with what I already see in 1080p, there is not much in it.
You have said before you dont use E-Shift, well if its anything like what happens when I turn off
Reality Creation on a 1080p source, it just looks to me like the whole screen is out of focus and a big blur by comparison, literally. So I think we are getting mixed up here. This is a comparison on Reality Creation with 1080p sources vs UHD material on the Sony 4K units.
I am forced to watch UHD in Rec.709 rather than Rec.2020 too, so you have 10bit colour and WAY more gamut on your JVC than the picture I am seeing.
I have Mad Max in UHD and I have watched it. (I have ten UHD Discs)... It was over-saturated vs my Bluray copy, it was not correct mate. The flames looked utterly fake and stood out in the background like 2d elements cut and pasted into the frame, the coloured flares they shot into the sky were so over-saturated it was a joke, almost neon in colour and looked super fake. I don't know what to say about that film but if I had you in my house and we switched between the BR and the UHD disc on my projector I don't even have to know you to say you would agree with me. The only people that could possibly like the image on my Mad Max disc are people who enjoy watching TV's on super dynamic-nowhere-near-calibrated modes.
I try not to talk about colour grade much in any of my comparisons, because these are all HDR discs in Rec.2020 and I have neither, so my observations on colour at this point would be flat out incorrect as I dont even have the means to have an opinion on something I am not fully seeing. I have only ever been about the detail and sharpness in the image compared to my 1080p sources with Reality Creation.
