Well it looks white but it does not look sharp. For example, the - bar on the letter T supposed to be 2 white pixels wide. But when i'm trying to focus the picture the - bar becomes either washed out a little bit or becomes 3 pixels wide. So the picure is never sharp.

From a distance (3.5m from 120inch) this looks sharp but it's not. It's like blinking with your eyes every time to look if it's sharp.

I'm using a PC as a source. So that might explain it. But when feeding a 4k signal (is that the same when setting the resolution on the pc to 4k?) the picure becomes very blurry. I hardly can read the clock in the bottom right corner.

But when playing the "costa rica 4k" on youtube it does look great. But when playing 4k movies it just looks not sharp enough for some reason.

Also, upscaling 1080p with the image enhancement does not seem to do much. As this projector is native 1080p with upscaling to 4k, 1080p movies should be no problem.

Maybe i'm very sensative to these kind of projectors.

I'm not an owner of this projector (current one is the Sharp XV-Z30000) but I am considering it.
Thank you for the info.
Yes you can and also tried this extensively. But this has some very mixed results. What happens is the following:

When aligning you can align two or three colors. The green is fixed. So you can align the red on the green. The blue on the green. Or the red and the blue at the same time.

But, the line being displayed is not 1 or 2 pixels wide. It looks washed out. When i'm mis aligning the red for example it's a clear red line of 1 pixel wide. But when I align the red pixel line back on the green line the color becomes washed out. Like the red is comming out on the top of the green line but also on the bottom.

So no matter how much I align, the line always becomes washed out.

This unit seems better then the last one though. But unfortunatly this one also has a dead pixel...

Will try some more testing today. Never noticed this on my old Benq w1070. That one just looked very sharp.

P.s. some other projectors i'm looking at are the benq w5700 (but it's 500 euro more then the Epson so that's prob a no go.) and the optoma UHD65 which is 200 euro's more then the Epson (2200 euro). Prob will go for the Optoma.

Set the PC to 3840x2160p, 12bpc, YCbCr 4:2:2, 60Hz and 250% internal scaling. Image Enhancement on the PJ to Preset 2 or 3. Then report back.

Where can I change the 2bpc, YCbCr 4:2:2, and 250% internal scaling? Is this set with the used media player?

Thanks found it. Using a GTX1070ti.

This looks much better indeed!

Will try some video's now.

Also, my new 10k HDR HDMI cable seems to be broken... Causing very weird sounds coming from my projector. Used different sources. WIth another cheap cable it looks fine.

Did saw a dead pixel or something yesterday so hopefully this was caused by the cable as well. Can't see it right now.

Update: picture is much sharper now. But still getting a dead pixel at the Epson black screen (if no source is attached). And a weird sounds from the projector when playing movies.

1080p looks crisp and sharp natively.

1080p with 4k enhancement is very blurry in comparison.

4k resolution looks the same type of blurry as 1080p 4k enhancement.

I understand it's a pixle shifter but shouldn't it be sharper and clearer in comparison to a 1080p signal? Especially 4k ?
You are talking looking at the image extremely closely. This is normal not only with the Epson but with the JVC E-shifters too, where Epson differs is that with 4K enhancement on you can sharpen the image with the image enhancement presets.

Whilst close up the image without e-shift will look sharper you will almost notice that the letters look jagged compared the the image with e-shift and also with it on they look finer. You just need to play with the image enhancement presets

Thanks for this,

I'm not sure if you saw this but here is a comparison shot. First is native 1080p the other is 4k enhancement.

If the pixel shift causes so much smudging of the image than what is the point? Surely this is why I'm disappointed with the 4k image as well as it looks very soft.

Yes, up close the 1080p native was harsher, but defined. 4k enhancement looses detail, you can clearly see that as the camera is in focus. From a distance the 1080p retains and looks significantly sharper as well. Any minor harshness up close is gone when seating 12 feet away. The image is crisp and clean.

There is no way feeding the unit 4k via UHD movie should look fuzzier in comparison to 1080p at the same distance.

Too bad about the dead pixel, but don't give up on the Epson yet. You can achieve even more additional sharpness (without artifacts) by using madVR's sharpening and upscaling algorithms, not to mention dynamic tone mapping (DTM). The Epson is a much better projector than those DLP's you mention.

P.S.: Here's a recent conversation that illustrates the differences between feeding an eshift projector with a 1080p signal and a 2160p signal: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/37-vi...l#post58563504

Question Picture in Picture

Is there a way to have a full split screen Picture in Picture with the 5050ub? I was able to do this with my earlier version Epson projectors. I loved being able to have split screen for pc and then watch tv on the other half? Can this be done?
Thanks!

The 5050 does not offer picture in picture or any kind of split screen.

1080P with e-shift.



4K



The above just zoomed in.

Now maybe you need to tweak your focus again, I’d suggest first adjust the focus with 4K e-shift off and then after you’ve adjusted it turn on the 4K e-shift and see if the focus need fine adjusted more.

They are very close in price in the US. If you would like more details shoot me a PM.

Lumens wise it will be within 200-300 calibrated lumens of the Epson calibrated in medium bulb.

You have to decide what you value more. More detail, better contrast and black levels or more brightness. The larger the screen the more impact on both choices. The 6050 has impressive detail, contrast and black levels. But not as good as the JVC. If your room is blacked out the JVC differences will really shine through. If your room has more ambient light the benefits of the JVC begin to diminish. If you primarily watch movies the NX5 will once again shine under the right conditions. For sports viewing you really will not miss the black levels, contrast and detail. You will really appreciate the extra brightness of the 6050 and the ability to have lights on while viewing sports. NX5 is for zero lights blacked out room.

Of course. There's pros and cons here for sure. The JVC will be better with motion in your sports example. Ambient light the sheer output of the Epson is going to win, but you'll have to use high bulb (and the noise that comes with it) and brighter less accurate modes to really see a huge difference.

One thing to add on the brightness equation, if you happen to be using a wider AR screen in conjunction with lens memory (or installation modes as JVC terms them) the 17:9 panel can be put full use and gain a sizable brightness increase. Over 10% more light can be observed with Scope material. Which would put it fairly close to the Epson calibrated in medium bulb in that use case. Obviously if you're only using a 16:9 screen this isn't applicable.

Again this isn't saying either of the Epson models is a poor choice. Just that the 6050 and NX5 are close enough in price in the US that you should cross shop them.

I'm in Canada so US prices don't apply too much. I'm looking at about 25-30% higher cost to get the NX-5 compared to the 6050 here.

Epson creates the preset image modes.This six-position control, with options for Off through Preset 5, adds increasing levels of detail as you step up. For 4K HDR, I prefer the Preset 2. Depending upon the quality of 1080p I use Preset 2 or 3.

I find those settings as the best compromise between achieving 4K-like detail and over processing the image which makes edges look artificial and faces waxy.

You can also modify those presets to your liking.

So while most people are super focus on sharpness, which I get and can appreciate between all the options I still feel color and DR/brightness is far more important. I sit about 20 feet from a 140" screen and I don't know that I can get a obvious improvement in sharpness no mater the projectors resolution. I do feel color contrast and over all brightness is critical. The adaptive iris is amazing also. If you really want to pixel pinch great but the reality is people will MOSTLY notice the color and the HDR pop, which seems like the 5050/6050 have in massive bounds. I own a 5050 so I might be bias.

Lets not forget in almost all cases either the 5050/6050 or the other JVC offers NX5 or other Sony guys generally will always deliver a far better viewing experience than the average movie theater. From my personal perspective the 5050 is giving the same experience as a Dolby theater but at home.

I'll be sitting no more than 11 feet from the screen and only projecting onto a 110 inch diagonal screen. Which is why I asked the question about the acoustically transparent screen. If the weave robs the image of lumens that might point me more towards the 5050/6050 option but if I'm sitting that close then the improvements from a true native 4k image may push me towards the NX5 (plus DTM).

Any material that passes sound means it will also pass light. How much light loss depends on the material being used , woven vs. perforated. Woven generally has less light passing through than perforated. Have you chosen your AT screen and if so what is it?

Honestly, with my 5050, I can't even imagine a picture being better. I'm blown away every time I watch anything, and so are people who see it for the first time.

It's not a new screen; it's the same one I was using for my 1080P Sony SXRD projector. I believe it's not woven but actually perforated. I'm not fully utilizing it as only my center channel is behind it and I could relocate it. It occurred to me recently that I might need to take into consideration my current screen or begin making plans for updating the screen along with the projector and disc player...

I have about 500 hours on the 5050ub now and I find that I have not been happy with the motion of the projector. I feel like anytime the camera moves I see it stutter. It happens on both my roku ultra and my apple TV 4k. I do have them both set to match framerate, and can confirm on the info that it is switching. It does not seem to matter what framerate it is on, it seems better at 60, but still a little weird. I had a Sony VPLHW40ES before this projector and only noticed stutter on very few scenes of fast camera panning, but I feel like I see it all the time with the Epson. I have skipped the reciever and it does not help any, and I have an optical active HDMI cable. Is this normal for the Epson? Or is there something wrong with my projector?

The 3D glasses are Epson brand ($60 each) on eBay.

Lack of time hasn't allowed me to watch a full movie in 3D yet but Memorial day weekend will change that for the better.

It's very important that each eye doesn't pick up any images from the other side to get the best 3D effect. The Epson glasses are big and nerdy looking but I love them since they fit well over my prescription glasses and the nosepiece is adjustable. I haven't messed with any other settings like depth, brightness etc.

I'm a huge 3D fan, owning about 120 3D Blu-rays movies. If you are too, there's a great Facebook group of over 5,000 members that share information on where to buy them, any sales, etc. Just search for "3D Blu-ray movie enthusiast group".
Concerning the 3d performance of the 5050/6050;
How is the ghosting issue? I have a 5 year old Sharp Xv-z30000 dlp which has great 3d; very sharp picture with zero ghosting. What are your thoughts?
Thanks

Hi - I'm a newb here and not even sure if I'm posting according to proper etiquette - apologies if not. I've had a 6050 for about a month new and have been enjoying the big screen experience but I'm not sure that it's displaying 4K source correctly. I'm hoping that you guys might be able to help me.

I have a Sony 1100es (which I'm not enjoying that much) that switches video sources and my only 4K source is an Amazon 4K FireTV Stick. When watching 4K UHD content I'm suspect that it's actually displaying in 4K. That said, I realize that the 6050 isn't a true 4K display so I'm not sure how I can confirm that the display is rendering 4K content optimally.

When 4K content from the FireTV is "Paused" the display indicates the resolution. In my case, the display indicates 1080P. I'm curious if this is the intended behavior from the 6050? Also curious to know what the correct way to ensure that the display is rendering 4K content as it should - would love advice and direction.

I also have a 4K samsung display connected to the same system. I can change display of the same content. When I Pause the content on the 6050 the display indicates 1080P as described above. When I change the display to the Samsung and Pause the content the display says 4K UHD.

Anyway - I really appreciate any advice and direction from you all.

Thank you!

A little off topic… but if you guys want to test out the colors of this projector, take a look at the Dark Crystal in 4K on Netflix.

Simply amazing!
