Yes 133", it's a matte white 1.0 gain (no color shift, no hot spotting). Lamp is on high, iris is on medium or fast, modes used are HDR, D.Cinema (SDR), Vivid TV (gaming), throw is about 13'.

It is the fastest pseudo 4K that I am aware of, I think it's a bit faster than the 5050.

My gaming experience on my 3550 has been pretty great.
As sage said it's the camera picking up the CW. It's a really nice Panasonic with a 50mm lens shooting at 4K. That video was only intended to show the input lag variance (not compare image quality). The brighter it is the more the camera will pick it up and I think that was in Vivid TV with BC on (to attempt a level playing field regarding lumen output, which is not possible as the 3800 has far more).
* It appears that having BC on makes it much harder to shoot clean video of the 3550 (due to the camera capturing the CW).
Regarding the resolution variance being discussed, it's not as obvious as we might assume. I was expecting the 3550 to have a clear advantage (as it should) but the fact that the 3550 has a lens that simply cannot fully resolve 4K (compared to many other XPR DLP units) it honestly makes the comparison (vs Epson HC3800) much closer.
