The laser speckle is caused by the narrow wavelengths of the respective laser modules, hence by utilizing a wide array of differing wavelengths the speckle is minimized. Consequently, when operating at full whack there was no perceivable increase in speckle.
During the morning, when the image was circa 540 nits, this was not in fact running full out, but at circa 16,500 lumens. Running full out, namely circa 30,000 lumens, the on screen (on the painted wall) peak luminance was circa 800 nits, and this is not with respect to a 10% window, which is what the peak luminance figures for OLED TVs correspond to, but the full field white luminance !
It was quite literally too bright to look at the full field white image and yet this was accompanied by absolute perfect blacks.
In this regard, it actually outperforms OLED TVs. And in fact, it also outperforms OLED TVs with respect to other aspects of video performance as well, such as the chroma performance, uniformity, and banding to name just a few. So I wasn't kidding or exaggerating when I said in my review that it significantly outperforms not only all other projectors, but also all other video display devices that I can think of with respect to overall video performance, across all formats, and this includes OLED TVs. It really is the new reference standard against which everything else should be compared
The video performance of this projector is more akin to that of the new flagship Sony BVM HX310 Master Reference Monitor
but with a screen size that's 18 - 20' wide!
