Oh kay.

I don't think a little customization at making your charts look more professional is over the top or tacky. But then if you had a name like William you would want to show it off too.

Amazing work Mr. Phelps and congrats to you William!

BTW, the PureLink cable works flawlessly.

WOW, it's true that William does do magic. I decided to have my HD10K optimized but thought the results would be subtle at best. Maybe it is my imagination but the picture seems to have much more depth and pop. I have only had a chance to watch one movie (Moulin Rouge (I also have new B&W speakers so had to have audio as well)) a some concert video (Eagles Farewell and Diana Krall) though but it sure was impressive. I will try some HD content tonight.

Wm's after calibration charts always look fantastic, but what I find most interesting is the before calibration data on a HD10K. It's the first real data on a HD10K that I've seen and it's pretty darn good. JVC factory cal has come a long way...

Curious on what the future of 24p for BD/HD and how to handle it with the HD10K. Will the HD10K accept a 24Hz input (not documented but neither is 48Hz)? If it did would it double to 48Hz? If not will the players offer 48Hz output (I don't think the Sammy does)? Are there any other undocumented scan rates the HD10K will take like 72Hz?

William,

The HD10K itself only handles 48, 50 and 60Hz inputs, but if you use an external scaler/processor that doubles 24p or 24psf to 48 then you're fine. The new HQV based processor that we're shipping now does this. 72Hz is definitely NOT supported...no reason for it to be as going to a higher multiple of 24hz is not beneficial in any way and is not supported at 1920x1080 over single link DVI or HDMI.

Cheers,

Tom Stites

Where have you been? In hindsight the 72Hz questions does seems a little dumb.

Art,

I don't know much more than the fact we'll have an off-site demo area near the CEDIA site. I'll post further info here once I get some details. I'll be there, look forward to seeing any and all.

Mattias, thanks for the reminder...I almost forgot to pack my laser pointer...

Mr Stites
Please forgive my repetitive nature but since JVC stated their intent on laser illumination of d-ila panels already in the first years of this millenium I am patiently hoping .... It was for digital cinema but most technologies migrate to lower cost systems.
Today the situation is different as noted by Insight media, now several companies are going laser. Two have stated so publically, Mitsubishi and Samsung. Since d-ila and sxrd stand to gain more from laser illumination than dlp it makes sense to me to nurture hopes of a brilliant future.

Anyone planning a JVC meet at Cedia denver? I will be there and would love to meet up with anyone who wants to...


I want to buy the 10k or the 2k, besides the 10k supporting 48hz 1080p (I understand that the 2k will only accept 50 and 60 1080p?) are there any other reason to pay the extra $4000 dollars over the 2k? I love JVC and am getting one of these 1080p projectors, just trying to find out if the 1ok is worth the extra money. I plan to use it for HD DVD and SDI SD DVD.

That bring up another question: does the farjoudia processor that ship with the 2k or 10k accept SDI input (or can it added to it)?

Just enjoy HD in whatever form you can (Sat, Cable, D-VHS, OTA, HD DVD, or BD).

Jon,

The Faroudja processor does not accept SDI, but we are now offering another processor by Silicon Optix that offers an HD-SDI/SDI input. It also supports driving the HD10K at 48Hz. Unless you already have a DVD player that has SDI output, I wouldn't obsess over that feature. HDMI output from current SD and HD DVD players makes SDI more or less irrelevant.

Other advantages of the HD10K include marginally better brightness, contrast and colorimetry. Short and long-throw zooms, adjustable offset, centered lens and quieter operation may or may not be relevant given your particular installation.

Cheers,

Tom Stites

The 2k will not accept 48hz correct?

Also I already a have an Iscan HD+ and a Yamaha CX1 changer with SDI mod (thanks Gary Murrell).

Is the 2k or 10k available without a processor? Would the Iscan HD+ be good at sending a 1080p 60 output to say the 2k? Would the 10k with another processor be worth the extra money?

Thanks

The HD2K won't accept 48Hz.

Both are available with or without a processor.

I have a iScan 30 (also available with the HD's) but don't like it because it doesn't have 1080p pass-through or 1080 deinterlacing (it does field scaling instead). The iScan HD+ does the same.

So the Iscan's convert 1080 into 540p is that what your saying? I noticed on my 1080p JVC RPTV that when I fed the 1080i from my Tosh Xa1 that my HD+ killed the picture but I thought the HD+ would not do that if i could use 1080p.

So even the vp30 will not pass thru 1080p without destroying it?

First the iScan will not destroy 1080p because it won't even accept a 1080p input at all. iScan says that they MAY have a firmware update soon to allow 1080p pass-through in the 30 (turning blue holding my breath). The maximum input you can have is 1080i. What it does with 1080i signal is field scaling. It takes each 1920x540 field and scales to it 1920x1080 and feeds this to the projector. It is pseudo 1080p deinterlacing. iScan doesn't make a 1080 deinterlace.

It is a OEMed HD10K. So internally they are the same.

They are the same projector except that the Meridian comes calibrated by William Phelps, which is one heck of a selling point.

Okey, same projector and about the same price... The calibration Mr William Phelps does is not depending on the room environment where the projector is going to play?

No, see the before and after charts of my HD10K optimization a few posts up.

Is there a particular screen that mates best to this projector? Given a totally light controlled room and a 9 or 10 ft. wide screen. I've been looking at this as my next projector.
