I'm hoping to get some insight from all of the experienced owners on the site. I recently purchased a 5000ES for my home. This is my second 5000ES as I currently have one of these installed at the office which is used for proofing design work. That office unit is running with settings out of the box, projected onto a 16 x 9 screen. Too many variables which are hard to control such as lighting, colors and finish of the room which I know hinder the projector displaying the best possible image. Nonetheless animation sequences that we display, perspectives, renderings, cad drawings all look outstanding.
The 5000ES I will be installing at home will be going into my home office. I currently have a 675ES set up in that room projected onto a 16:9 116" x 65" screen. This unit gets multiple uses, 65-70% work related, 10% news/ sporting events/ cartoons (for my 3yr old) and 20% for actual movie watching . The sources I am feeding it are Workstation Direct, Strato, Oppo 103, Directv, Roku, Apple TV through an Anthem AVM 60. Much of the time when the projector is turned on with things such as DirectTv/ Roku etc its with ambient light at a low level since its while I am working there is light coming off of the monitors. Only when something worthwhile that I download on the Strato or I play on the Oppo do all the lights get turned off including the workstation and monitors and I actually sit down to watch.
I have attached a couple images with set up information on the screen, one has vertical masking the other horizontal masking. My questions are:
1) Is this screen size small enough to be able to do HDR adequately.
2) Would I be better off using a lumagen radiance pro instead of the lens zoom on the Sony.
1) Would this screen size allow me to do HDR adequately.
2) Is there an advantage to using more of the chip for 16 x 9 and just the center for 2.35:1? as opposed to the first set up.
same questions as 2
The Da-Lite screen material is based on what we have been using for the last 10 years, and are currently using with the 5000ES in the office. The Home Office presently has that same material on the 116 x 65 screen, which is represented in the Home Office.png red outline.
MY intention is to have the projector calibrated but I would like to have everything in place beforehand.
Thanks for the help in advance, and the patience.
