None that I know of, and probably not likely to be any in the near future either.

Probably never going to happen from what I’ve heard from insiders.

Search the forums, it’s been discussed a few times. Some posts saying Dolby hasn’t gotten around to setting a standard for projectors, some saying they don’t have a good way to get screen data required like they do from flat panels, others said that by the time they would get around to it the technology will be obsoleted by micro led panels, etc. Don’t really know the answer, if there is one.

None with DV built in... but there is the DV LLDV hack, where a capable source device can be spoofed into processing a DV, HDR10 or SDR source with the Player LED Do;by Profile 5 Layer DV processing, which then outputs a HDR10 signal with a PQ curve to any HDR10 compliant display.

Using this DV LLDV process (ATV4K, Oppo 203 or Sony x800m2 --> Vertex2 -> x990) works very well for me DV and HDR10 content.

Follow the link in my sig for discussion on this hack.

JVC DLA-X990 - 128" 2.35 1.3 Gain Screen - Vertex2 - X800M2 - UB820 - ATV4K64 - ROKU Ultra - PS4 - XBone
7.1.4 Atmos - Denon X4300H + Denon 3806(LCR) - JBL Control 5 - BIC Sub - Dayton

Might be licensing snafu... would be doable, since Dolby and Sony worked out the Profile 5 Layer processing for any Sony display (A1 OLED) which lacks DV process all together.

Sony could certainly incorporate whatever they do on the A1 OLED into their projectors. Maybe some fine tuning for more limited nit range, but it definitely works.
