Sold me big time to be sure to get as high color performance as I can get.
So did I! I watched Mary Poppins Returns in the Dolby Cinema in New York next to Times Square and Central Park (AMC Empire 25) the day before yesterday. The colors were fantastic!
That said, shame about the fact there's still a lot of enviromental lighting wherein the image you are seeing on screen is only circa 80,000:1 contrast performance, which still considerably superior as compared with typical commericial cinemas, but nothing like what it would be in a properly blacked out environment.
However, as impressive as the Dolby Vision projectors in Dolby Cinemas are, the video performance is inferior to the performance of the new projector by CHRISTIE that utlizes the same technology but which offers significantly superior video performance in more ways than one: NEW CHRISTIE HIGH CONTRAST 4K HDR RGB LASER PROJECTOR
My point being that even what you will be experiencing in Dolby Cinemas is not the best that can be achieved as of right now. Seriously, you should see the color performance of this new Christie projector. Coupled with the increased contrast the image is utterly mesmerizing. Where in this regard it has the same double-whammy of concomitant higher contrast and better chroma/color performance as does the difference between the JVC RS1000/NX5/N5 and the JVC RS2000/NX7/N7, but on a grander scale. That projector in itself is irrefutable proof of just how much chroma/color can affect overall video image quality
And it is because of this that I have to applaud JVC for taking the chroma/color performance with these new projectors not just to 100% of DCI-P3 but in fact above and beyond.
Where even with content that isn't mastered to fully take advantage of what is above the 100% of DCI-P3 mark, albeit with the increasingly expanding library of consumer video content mastered for BT.2020 they most certainly will
, this should in all instances lead to better tracking of the DCI-P3 primaries and secondaries, and hence overall comparatively significantly superior chroma/color performance as compared with other projectors that achieve significantly less coverage of DCI-P3 with not-so-good tracking of the primaries and secondaries.
Which by the way, I am not sure whether many people realize this but %age gamut coverage is not the only important influencing factor here, it is also how well it tracks the primaries and secondaries that's important, meaning you can have two projectors with identical %age gamut coverage but where one is perceivably superior as compared with the other if the tracking of the primaries and secondaries significantly differs.
