Based on past behavior, do you really feel like they'll have huge improvements for a just released product and panel design? I would expect small changes like RSx00 to RSx20 at best. Rather see them get the bugs ironed out for early adopters than put a new number on the chassis and implement a couple software tweaks.

Just my guess lol. I have 0 real evidence, just rumors from people who claim to know. Other people who claim to know have also told me that its not likely at all.

But still my guess.
I will take that bet.

Sorry if this has been asked, but I'm at work and don't have time to go through all the pages. Which mount are you all using for the NX5/RS1000?

I am sure JVC will be there, we will have to wait and see what they display. RS2000 and RS3000 are NOT plentiful yet, so your guess is as good as any other guess.

I tried to focus NX5 but I find out that when I have full opened iris I have ghosting. I have 03/2019 version and FW 2.03. Is this problem nowdays normal or is it some hardware failure?
Thanks

If you don’t mind the SOE artifacts then you can leave it on, I guess some people don’t mind it but I find pretty noticeable and distracting.

Hey, How do you set the projector to upscale 1080p content? Also, once upscaled will it still report that the incoming signal is 1080p?

For those in Aus I’m using a Fetch TV as the content source for soccer which outputs at 1080p

Or would I be better off getting my Denon AVR to upscale the content (would have to figure out how to do this too).

Panny source is fine as I get that to upscale.

Thanks in advance

Assuming you are asking about what settings to use when watching HDR, there are quite a few comments and different thoughts on this issue. If you do a search on this thread and also on the thread in the Blu-ray forum that is set up specifically for the UB820, I think you will get a good bit of information and people's impressions on alternate settings. In particular, keep an eye out for posts by claw in the Blu-ray forum, and within the past week or so, I think there was a post by someone on this forum comparing various settings in the UB820 and in the of the new JVC units.

The panels are 4K so if you feed it 2K signal the upscaling is automatic.

There is no setting to upscale explicitly

Off-topic for this thread except for the JVC RS3000 projector, and might be more appropriate in the Screens Section of AVSForum, but since you asked:

For about 3 years, I've had a SI Slate 1.2 120" 16:9 motorized series 5 in my media room, which I now have demoted to use exclusively for casual viewing of 16:9. By "casual", I mean when some lights are left on in the room or window shades are left up during daytime. Perfect for watching sports, lots of football and ice hockey and TV channels.

Just last week, I installed a Stewart Filmscreens StudioTek 130 G3 153" 240:1 motorized Electriscreen, for wide scope screen 4K and Blu-ray movie watching in the same media room ceiling. Unlike the SI slate 1.2, this screen requires a completely, or almost completely, darkened room for optimum viewing.

The rest of my gear is listed in my autosig below.

Both screens serve their purpose. Both were ordered with a two-foot drop and installed in a knotty-pined 9' high ceiling. The Stewart StudioTek 130 G3, is clearly superior for "perfectionist bat cave" viewing. IMO, the "fit and finish" of the Stewart is clearly superior to that of SI. The Stewart motor operates quieter that the SI motor. The Stewart screen hangs perfectly straight, whereas I've never been able to cure wrinkles on the lower foot or so on both sides of the SI screen despite many attempts to "fine-tinker" the adjustable screen tab tension knobs. The motor of the Stewart is somewhat quieter than the SI motor, though once it is in its up or down position, of course it matters naught. Both screens arrived well-packaged in undamaged condition. The Stewart screen came in a massive custom-made wood box coming off the truck at 294 lbs. and the screen itself in the ceiling weighs about 100 lbs. less than that. It took a crew of 3 from Electronic Insiders-Nashville a full 2 1/2 days to install it.

The combo of the JVC RS3000 / Paladin DCR lens / Lumagen Radiance Pro viewed on the Stewart StudioTek 130 G3 is simply awesome for immersive film screening and I still have some fine tuning to do. Opinion of many is that this screen is state-of-the-art.

The advantage of the SI Slate 1.2, as an ALR screen, is that it provides an excellent image especially within an illuminated room during times when social interaction is important but the tradeoff it is not quite as perfect.

Again, both screens serve their purpose admirably.

Hey Craig,

Thanks so much for your consulting via phone in March before I placed the order with Mike Garrett. Your comments and insights were invaluable! Seeing pic's of your theater with its two screens helped me visualize what i now have before I pulled the trigger!

I sent the form in about 8 weeks ago and I just got notice that it was shipped by UPS. I emailed JVC before I got the shipment notice and they told me that the lamp was back ordered.

Which email address are you using for contacting JVC USA? I sent them a few questions about my DI issue, and asked them to confirm the information I got from JVC Europe about the issue being fixed in the next firmware. No reply so far, been two days.

I think in your case with an NX7 you want as close to max zoom as possible. This results in a brighter image. And with the NX7 you can set a manual iris setting to lower brightness and regain that contrast if you have the extra lumens to spare. I think on your 150" screen you'll benefit more by having max brightness, though.

Hmmm, my guess would be slightly different.

I think an NX9 variant with laser is almost a given, but I'd expect it to top out at 2000-2500 lumens (I can't imagine the NX9 chassis is large enough to house 5000 lumens worth of laser heat), and be a mid-tier model between the RS4500 and the NX9, somewhere around $25k. I wouldn't necessarily consider that an RS4500 replacement.

They could just port over their existing 8K e-shift laser from the commercial line, and call it a Z2, as a more like-for-like replacement: https://eu.jvc.com/pro/projectors/si...rs/DLA-VS4700/

I can then see them releasing a 5000 lumen variant, using one of the commercial chassis (maybe still the same as the RS4500 chassis) at some point, at the $60k price point, maybe with native 8K, and/or maybe with RGB lasers (though I see no RGB lasers in their commercial line up yet, Barco now has a native 4K RGB laser for $50k: https://www.barco.com/en/product/sp4k-12 - if you can house it, and don't mind less than 10k:1 on/off - so the tech is out-there at the right price point for manufacturers to use).

Aren't the BenQ 990 etc smaller than the NX9? That one has 6000 lumens!

Plus a pretty groovy cooling system by the looks of it.

I wouldn't necessarily consider that an RS4500 replacement.

They could just port over their existing 8K e-shift laser from the commercial line, and call it a Z2, as a more like-for-like replacement: https://eu.jvc.com/pro/projectors/si...rs/DLA-VS4700/

I can then see them releasing a 5000 lumen variant, using one of the commercial chassis (maybe still the same as the RS4500 chassis) at some point, at the $60k price point, maybe with native 8K, and/or maybe with RGB lasers (though I see no RGB lasers in their commercial line up yet, Barco now has a native 4K RGB laser for $50k: https://www.barco.com/en/product/sp4k-12 - if you can house it, and don't mind less than 10k:1 on/off - so the tech is out-there at the right price point for manufacturers to use).
The BenQ 5000 lumen LK970 chassis is smaller than the NX9. I think the laser will fit.

JVC does not change housing very often. No way JVC did not allow for future design of laser in the new housing.

So I preordered the NX7 before the end of April and my dealer stated it should arrive by the end of May. I was wondering if JVC will still honor the free bulb promo since I did place the order before the end of April. I think the postmark date for the promo has to be by the middle of May, but that won't happen for me. Wondering if anyone has any contact with JVC and their position on this. Also I noticed the promo form is gone on the JVC website. Does anyone have a link to the free bulb form they can share? Thanks!

Anyone have a sense of how close JVC is to fulfilling RS2000 preorders? I was one of the last (if not THE last) to get my preorder placed back at the end of January.

Curious who else is still waiting and when you put in your preorder?

My wife has grown increasingly unhappy with our non-functional theater room over the past month and wants to cancel the preorder and go to our closest A/V shop and buy something decent and be done with it. I'd rather not go that route, but if we are still months out from receiving our preorder then I might pick up a cheaper option to temporarily appease my better half until the RS2000 comes in...

I placed my pre-order back in October and am still waiting. The RS2000(NX7) orders are moving, but very slowly. It seems to depend on what dealer you ordered with.

I strongly recommend calling multiple dealers, haggling an optimal price with all of them, and getting on all of their lists. Whoever delivers first gets your money.

That's what I've done now. Sick of waiting.

Wow, I had no idea unfilled orders still went that far back. Sounds like I definitely need to formulate a wife-appeasement strategy

That's in WI and SOWK is certainly a stand up member.
