This principle can also be applied with respect to home theater projectors, which could have been very easily done with respect to the SONY 995/870ES, offering the choice of: 2000, 3500, 5000, 7500, 10000, 15000 lumens and more, whilst utlizing the same singular projector head
I think it would be fantastic if SONY were to implement this with particuarly with respect to the successor to the SONY 5000ES, whenever that makes an appearance (hopefully next?
) where in that instance they could offer 5000, 7500, 10000, 15000, and 20000 lumens options. This way you cater for all home theater applications, requirements, and personal preferences.
Added to this I would like to see the transition forwards from singular blue laser to dual red and blue laser with green phosphor, if not full RGB laser please!
The other new Christie projector, namely the D4K40-RGB PURE LASER PROJECTOR
is evidence that with the advancement in laser module technology it is now economically viable to make the move to RGB laser with home theater projectors, where this particular new projector has an MSRP of circa $150,000 with a colossal 40,000 lumens light output with true RGB laser and this is using Green Laser diodes not infrared with a wavelength frequency converter to shift the red light into the green spectrum which has the massive advantage of producing considerably less heat as a consequence. Where this projector incorporates extremely high quality and hence expensive lenses and optics to boot. However, I do not recommend this Christie D4K40-RGB projector for home theater/cinema use because unlike the flagship projector mentioned above it has poor contrast performance being only peak 5,000:1 ON/OFF contrast. But the reason why I am mentioning it is because it illustrates that fact that it is totally feasible and economically viable for SONY to release a replacement for the SONY 5000ES at the same MRSP as the SONY 5000ES which incorporates full RGB laser instead of singular blue laser through yellow phosphor. And like I have said SONY could also make it modular with multiple light output options
[PLEASE NOTE: I am referencing these aforementioned particular two Christie projectors solely because they are relevant to this discussion and not because I am seeking to promote these projectors or Christie as a brand. At the time of writing this post I have never in my life to date sold nor currently sell Christie projectors.]
The lastest SONY projectors currently only achieve circa 90% of DCI-P3, which includes the SONY 995/870ES. Moving to RGB laser would not only steam past 100% of DCI-P3 but achieve over 90% of the BT.2020 color gamut! Seriously, the step-up in video image quality and performance as a result would be very considerable indeed, especially with the ever expanding quantity of HDR content that is mastered for BT.2020 beyond DCI-P3. Kiss goodbye to orangey reds, lime coloured greens and wish-washy cyans and blues for starters
André Floyd, if you are reading this please take note! Pretty pretty please with a cherry on top!
