The other night I had a single malt tasting while watching " Kingsman: The Secret Service " on the RS4500. Then it turned into a game - every time they drink on screen, you have to take a sip of single malt. Everybody picked their own bottle ( later to be rotated around ) -

then the current one. The Jvc 4500 sounds really nice,like you,
i have a Jvc rs500u, seems you had/have the rs600u. How much of a difference between them?

Depending on where you are located, might be able to arrange a viewing of an RS4500. Shoot me a PM or email.

Looked great on my little RS400 in 4K HDR with that nice custom gamma you loaded; fresh lamped as it is!

Some scenes from GOTG Vol.2 would be nice too.

A few screen shots from " Jack Reacher 2 " - which I thought was pretty good ( couldn't beat the price on Amazon for the 4K disc ! ) -

It's pretty amazing how sharp and realistic Blu-rays can look upscaled to 4K on this projector -

Has anyone here measured the input lag on this projector? Does it have a low input lag or gaming mode?

There is a gaming mode but I haven't measured the input lag. Assuming its similar or better than the 620, those that have tested claim there is very little lag.

Thanks for the reply. I'm reading conflicting reports regarding input lag. the model you mentioned comes close to 21ms with low input lag mode however reviews are saying 51ms.

A couple of more questions if you owners don't mind answering I'm very close to pulling the trigger on one and am actually in the process of negotiating a final price.

First of all are there any whispers of a replacement model coming anytime within the year? I heard murmurs of a version 2 but nothing concrete so far.

Second question, does it have an auto calibrate function? This is essential because we don't have anyone in the country that knows how to properly calibrate one of these and a 35k projector that's not calibrated is 35 down the hole lol. So the auto calibrate function like those on Sony and some panasonic projectors would do wonders for me.

Edit: after further researching, on the page for the DLA-Z1 it mentions auto calibration however on the DLA-RS4500 page there is no mention of it. Is there a difference between these two models? I thought it was just a difference in naming for the Europe and North American regions.

No replacement until maybe Cedia 2018. I'm sure there will be firmware updates to improve performance even more between now and then.







The Sony VW885 looked good, but I think the RS4500 still has the edge - brighter, better lens too.

Auto calibration software works fine with the RS4500. You can do custom HDR gamma curves with the Arve tool as well.

Also, for owners, if you are looking to reduce your HDMI synch time, run the low lag mode ON. This reduces the time to synch and since the 4500 doesn't have the softening effect that the lower line has with this mode, it is easy to just set it and leave it. The only drawback is no CMD for those that use it.

Chadb is finishing up my projector now, but I asked him what I was getting contrast wise and he said 22,000:1 with dynamic dimming turned off.

That is with my setup using medium power mode with manual iris at -7 and getting around 17FL on screen.

Is that 'best case' then Mike, or can you get more in high power mode, and the iris clamped down further? Was Chad able to measure what the dynamic contrast came out at (by that I don't mean with full laser switch off/FTB, but peak output vs one pixel lit)?

Yes, could get higher if moved to high and then closed down the iris more, but with 22,000:1 plus the dynamic dimming, I am very happy with the image and see no reason to go to high. No was not measured with dynamic dimming. I believe Kris said he was getting 15,000:1 and around 80,000:1 with dynamic dimming. So you can extrapolate it out. Would put me well over 100,000:1.
