What gives?
Clark, I'm not an expert, but it appears that Chad B, a known calibrator had a few comments in his review of the RS3000 that I thought you might want to see again.
After calibration, the RS3000’s measured performance (color, grayscale tracking, and gamma) was virtually flawless in SDR mode.
Switching to familiar reference 4K HDR Blu Rays, the image was, as expected, simply stunning in HDR Bright (a renamed User mode based off high lamp, no color filter, Auto 2 aperture, and custom gamma curve). The incredible light output, combined with the Auto aperture (AKA Dynamic Iris), led to a powerful image that had to be seen to be believed. Shadow detail was nicely balanced, and colors were rich and satisfying.
The RS3000 is a significant advancement in many ways over JVC’s previous models, which is saying a lot. Native 4K resolution and excellent focus give fantastic detail. The improvements in the Dynamic Iris are significant, and make it a very useful enhancement that can be used without reservation. Even though the measured contrast numbers were not as strong as other recent lamp based JVCs, the DI improvement minimized or made up for any visible contrast difference in my situation. The RS3000’s image reminded me of JVC’s much more expensive RS4500, and it’s time in my home theater was amazingly satisfying.
