I played the 4K pattern with the windows picture viewer and with mpc-be (madvr).
BUT: The brown fox pattern I played was native 4K with RGB outputs (and so was the JVC and Sony ones used in the same comparison).
Neither did windows, madvr or the projector have to do any scaling.
You can use a 1080p pattern if you want to look at upscaling capabilities.
But with the 4K pattern, the goal is see to how the projector resolve the 4K resolution given a 4K signal.
But the end point is: the Epson LS10000 when fed with native 4K RGB signal is pretty sharp and does an excellent with it's E-shift.
Much better than any JVC (not counting the 4k and not even considering that the JVC create picture noise but the Epson does not) and pretty close to the native 4K of the Sony (probably because they use cheap lens).
ps: Epson internal 4K upscaling is very bad and makes the picture blurry and noisy.
It was a very bad move from Epson at the time especially with Sony having great 4K upscaler.
With madvr or a panasonic 4K player, upscaling is excellent and the Epson can then demonstrate what it can REALLY do. :-)
