With zero updates for this thread I turned to Google and was excited to find a big, bold headline from What Hifi.com announcing an Epson “flagship Pro UHD 4K projector.” I clicked on the link with excitement to find the 6050UB. 🤬 Pathetic click-bate hacks! Not too different than the media circus AVS tried to generate months ago but at least the Forums were smart enough to keep the announcement vague with no mention of Epson UHD.
As foretold, no significant announcements for the general projector market this year. 😞

There was nothing much to report aside from the L500 UST from Epson. Sony and JVC had firmware updates.

Mind you, JVCs 8K projector demo looked absolutely stunning. Best PQ at the show.

During the Wisdom Audio demo, a Barco Loki was used for projection. It could not help but notice how inferior the picture quality was as compared to the 8K JVC DLA-RS3000. I understand the Loki needs to fill a huge screen but it did not look nearly as good overall, and especially in terms of contrast and saturated colors.

Did you get a chance to see the Barco Bragi? New 2100 lumen LED projector. I'm curious as to whether or not it has the same sequential contrast problems as the laser ones in the family.

But not likely because of the resolution.

IMO 8k is a total waste of resources.

Or worse, as it lowers CR in pj's.

I don't know if it was me but I liked better the image at the 8k projector than their flagship RS4500 at the klipsch booth, my wife thinks the same.

Only other projector that really liked my wife and I was the Sony 5000ES

Agree at least as presented at that show the NX9 looked best. I was shocked the demo room was empty when I got there.

But that Klipsch demo looked good too.

Is there a throw distance calculator somewhere? How many feet do you need for a 120” screen?

I had hoped for more projector news at the show. So there it is.

I haven't looked, but what about the large panels? Did Sony have their massive 25 footer?

Did you see the room with the Epson 6050UB running? Sound & Vision gave it some pretty high marks when they saw it.
