JVC N7 total darkness

Hi all.

Coming from CRT I expect total darkness when the image shown is suppose to be pitch dark. How will that look on your N7 with blacked out windows, black floors and ceiling + walls?

Even a CRT can't show total darkness like in the beginning of CARS, at least when you want a bit of lightness too. I go with the darkness that will leave me blind for some 4-6 seconds or so before I begin to se my hand again. Have you tried it on your CARS movie?

When will JVC release the N7 successor? 2020 or 2021?

Thanks in advance from Sweden.

No one knows, but my bet is 2021.

I don't have experience from the latest native 4K series, but I am using the last eshift series unit RS500 that is supposed to have sligthly better black levels. I get few seconds of full black from this until my eyes adjust, and it is more than enough for example the Cars beginning. Awesome effect. I sure hope that the N7 would give the same feeling too.

Nah the only projector that will actually be black on that scene is the RS4500. The RS640 will do better than the N7 on that scene. The N7 does ok and far better than other brands, but it's not going to be that dark if you stare at a black screen for a few seconds. JVC really raised their black floor on this recent lot for some reason. It's still the best you can get for a 4K projector, but not like it was.
