If you have mixed light content in a scene, the projector with greater ANSI CR and better performing HDR will likely have the advantage in most cases. Since the assumption being provided is that many if not most films have mostly scenes that advantage the JVC (one would assume since otherwise people should be criticizing the JVC for failing to match or best the LK790 in most film content), I would like to see some objective data supporting the claim. Can anyone please provide actual data suggesting that 20-50% of the content on most films advantages a projector with excellent on/off CR as opposed to a superior projector from the perspective of HDR, ANSI CR, sharpness, lumens, etc. I am not trying to suggest this is not possible, I am saying that my experience from watching movies suggests that it is highly unlikely. But data supporting the claim is far superior evidence than my assumed expectation. In fact, if we could consider 10 major films where this is the case, I think that would at least give some credence to the unquestionable preference being suggested by some non-DLP posters. I have not seen Green Book, but one of the posters who was highly critical of the LK790 without ever seeing it (he dismissed the LK790 in another forum as nothing more than a business projector with a good lens) spoke highly of the film. What percentage of that film would likely give an advantage to the JVC vs what percentage of the film would give an advantage to the LK790?
Yea that's what I'm suggesting. Let me show you an example. Javs measured this around 2% ADL. I was shocked. I used this originally to "prove" to javs that the JVC iris reacts in much brighter content because it reacts on this. He then measured it and I was surprised. Turns out about 50% of content is below the 5% ADL in films.
Remember the JVC had advantage up to around 15% ADL. Then the advantage up to say 20% on the LK970 is probably not really noticeable.

Yea the reason for this is because where the LK970 fails, it fails super hard. The blacks on a very dark scene are going to be so poor that if this is not acceptable to you, you will not be happy.
Consider it like this. Would you consider a car that is superior to a Ferrari in most ways, looks just as good, and costs 1/4th the price even if say that car had no windows and could never have windows no matter what you did?
