I don't think there is much chance of that, at least not with the same P3 coverage claims. I'm even surprised seeing an RGBRGB lamp projector reaching anywhere close to 94% of DCI P3, and at 2000 lumens!
If the filters are always in the light path, then rec 709 would have lower lumens than P3, since the DMD would have to dim the primaries to narrow the gamut triangle to the smaller range. I'd rather full P3 on all the time, and less risk of mechanical failure like the Epsons have with their Cinema Filters which are on a track.
I'm very much looking forward to native + dynamic contrast numbers on this, as well as input lag and actual lumens / P3 coverage.
I think this might be the upgrade to my w1070 that I've been waiting for, for six years now, but we're so close to laser and LEDs becoming the norm, that I feel it would be dumb of me to not wait until that happens (maybe also from BenQ), in 2019.
I do require a 120hz at 1080p mode in my next projector with HDR on and in 4:4:4, plus a final contrast ratio that's at least somewhat better than my w1070's native.
Plus, I'm aghast that not one projector manufacturer has thought it would be a competitive advantage to let these projectors shine for games at 240hz with 4ms input lag. The DMDs and controller chips can do it, they already run at 240hz. The HDMI 2.0b cables can pass 1080p 240hz in SDR as well, and HDR10 in 4:2:2. Or 192hz in 10-bit in 4:4:4. I hope someone at BenQ is reading this. A 240hz FHD DLP, with a dynamic iris, HDR10 and low lag would be the best gaming display in the world. There are 1080p 240hz LCDs but they are TN panels in the 24-27 inch range, hardly comparable. And they don't offer HDR nor P3, AFAIK
. DLPs and ultra-high refresh rates are a match made in heaven. And the controllers support 240hz native operation already! It should just be a matter of a firmware / EDID update to enable 240hz native operation.
A dynamic iris is very interesting, if it performs well and isn't too bothersome noise-wise or pumping-wise. I'd rather dynamic LED dimming all the way to 0% (instead of 30% like lamps) than a mechanical iris, though, but I think dynamic iris on an affordable DLP is an idea whose time has come.
HDR-PROTM is promising too, and seems like it would take HDR10 and make it dynamic, like HDR10+, which is frankly necessary for projectors. I hope native HDR10+ could be supported eventually through firmware updates, as well. And at that point, why not hope for Dolby Vision too. Dynamic dimming and dynamic metadata are things which should go hand in hand to help a projector do its best impression of a flat panel TV.
