Optoma UHZ65LV

Currently looking for the right projector for my upcoming build. Since I'll have a little natural light, laser seemed intriguing and so I was looking at the UHZ65 or Theo UHZ65-Lite, then came across the newly released UHZ65LV. I assume since it's so new, there is zero about it online. Has anyone seen one?

Have you also looked at the BenQ lk990/970 and ht9060/9050?

I have seen that the uniformity is 70% compared to 85% of the UHZ65

Lists 5,000 lumens and yet video optimized lumens SDR is only 1,525. That is a huge hit, just to get accurate performance.

1525 lumens is still OK but cinema mode does much better, and HDR, which wasn't tested will do better as well.

That is just a less accurate mode, which allows more light output.

We don't actually know that as the test didn't measure colour accuracy. It implies that HDR Standard mode is pretty good:

"You can improve the 4K image significantly by experimenting with various combinations of HDR mode (HDR and HDR2); HDR Picture Mode (Bright, Standard, Film, and Detail); Gamma; and Dynamic Black (the equivalent of an auto iris). I settled on HDR, Standard Picture Mode, Gamma 2.4, and Dynamic Black 1."

and that mode is probably somewhere over 2000 lumens.
