If the U1 supports 3D and used the .66 larger TI chip, then the 3D image will be smaller than the full 16:9 screen. The micro-mirror array of that chip is 2716 x 1528, NOT 1920x1080. They would need to stop the XPR function that vibrates the chip for 4K and use a portion of the 2716x1528 pixels. I suppose they could upscale the 1920x1080 3D image to 2716x1528, but no one has done that so far. If they do it, and it works out, perhaps others would follow, and you would get a slightly sharper image. I'm skeptical, though. I think they are using the .47 1920x1080 4K chip used in the newer, smaller 4K projectors. That's all I'm saying. And using the small .47 chip makes more sense for the smaller size of the U1. I'm not trying to take away from the excitement of this projector, as it has a lot of wanted features. In fact,
, provide me a demo to put through it's paces, and I will give you an honest, unbiased review...
Here are some points to consider:
On this page it says the U1 uses the .66 chip and two phase 4K http://en.jmgo.com/news/native-4k-vs...-projector.htm
If you scroll down this page, you will see an image stating a .47 DMD is used. https://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?id...=3900573914354
The downside of the using the .47 chip is that light border around the image due to unused pixels in the .47 chip that all of the 4K projectors using that chip suffer from.
In another statement, it stated 10,000:1 contrast ratio. In the above link specs it states Contrast degree: 3001:1-4000:1
In the "revews" which appear to be rehashing the specs, it states the max lumens is 4,000. The specs say 2,000.
Remember my previous statement that you can't always believe the statements made by the companies that make them. The true nature of the projector will come out soon...will be interesting to see the truth...
