To say the optics aren't good enough on the IIIL for 4K is a little suspect. You didn't say such, but I've seen it mentioned.
That UH380 won't work for 4096 though. I'm more interested in getting top performance these days. I tend to save more pennies in the long run by buying exactly what I want and being happy with it long term. The RS4500 would be another example. And I'm 100% happy with my DCR lens.

Noob question. On the webinar for the new line of JVC projectors it was stated that 50fL is the target for brightness and HDR. The screen I will be getting is rated at 1.3 and is 130” diagonal CinemaScope. On VideoCalc app it says my fL would be 58fL. I’ve debated getting a lens until I saw where you said Kris had to dial it back. Are there any other advantages in getting the lens?

So many factors to bring into play there. I assume you’re target projector is the N7, as that has a specified 1,900 lumens?

If so:

- it will only deliver those lumens at minimum throw, any greater throw distance and the lumens will reduce.
- It will only deliver those lumens uncalibrated. I’m not sure how much the new line lose through calibration, but I’d factor in 10%.
- it will only deliver those lumens in first use. As the bulb ages, particularly as you’ll be running on high lamp to hit those numbers, the output will drop. Again, I don’t know how the new units are holding up in that regard, but I’d expect to lose 10-15% in the first few hundred hours.
- Are you sure you’re screen delivers a 1.3 gain? Many manufacturers quote a figure higher than the materials achieve in reality.

Long and short of it, you are likely to be well under 50FtL when you eventually physically measure it. The DCR lens will likely give you a large enough light boost to negate all of those factors.

Also one overriding point on a JVC projector, is having more light than you need is actually a very good thing. It allows you to clamp down the manual iris further, increasing your on/off contrast for the same target light level.

I agree with Wookii, I could have a lot more but in my environment and screen size the HDR is great! I would get as much as you can within getting a projector that has good contrast and color. There is more to the DCR than just the light. The picture is great off of it also.

Yes it’s for a N7 and the screen is a ST130

The reason this failed is that your email client is trying to use IPv6 to send the email.

It therefore attempts to resolve the IP address of the domain panamorph.com by referring to its AAAA record in its DNS.

Since panamorph.com has no AAAA record, it can't work out where to send the email.

Two fixes:

1 - Send from a non IPv6 email client
2 - @Shawn Kelly would need to configure the AAAA record in his DNS management tool. Likely setting it to the same IP address as the A record (67.210.118.44)

Cheers
