That is pretty much precisely what I said when I first learned of this!
That said, I am personally a Doubting Thomas... and so suffice to say that whilst our sources are solid, I won't be believing any of this until after I have seen it in person. Because for example 'high contrast' could mean comparatively speaking versus other direct RGB laser projectors, in which case 6,000:1 native ON/OFF qualifies as being referred to as 'high contrast', as per the BARCO THOR for example... But where with respect to HT as far as we are concerned 'high contrast' means in the same ballpark as say for example the JVC X9500 which has a native ON/OFF contrast typically ranging from circa 50,000:1 - 160,000:1. So I will be reserving judgement until I have personally eyeballed the demo unit, where I will post on here what are my initial impressions, along with the full extent of whatever technical information and performance figures I am able to extract from Sony, where I am hoping that I won't be seeing any infinity symbols anywhere if you know what I mean
Further to this, we are also interested to learn what to expect in the way of ANSI contrast where it would be nice if this too is decent.
Being realistic what we are hoping for is native contrast performance figures lying somewhere between these ranges, such as ranging from circa 20,000:1 - 30,000:1, but this is pure speculation and we won't really know what to expect regarding contrast performance until we attend the demo at CinemaCon.
Either way, it's very exciting. Could this be the projector we have all been waiting for?
