Question Compare Christie Captiva DHD400S vs Viewsonic LS830

Hi,
I'm planning my Home Theater with Ultra Short Throw projector. Came across the above mentioned 2 models from Christie
Captiva DHD400S and Viewsonic LS830.
The contrast ratio varies significantly Christie with 1800:1, viewsonic 10000:1.
Have you ever watched the above mentioned projectors? Why the contrast has such a big gap?

Thanks

Viewsonic is probably lying, and Christie not (as much).

Change "probably" to "most likely".

Well it's laser, so they could be counting turning off the laser for fade to black, and then it's just highly misleading and not actually lying
