Allright.. from what I hear they are already broadcasting 1080p in Japan, or at least readying to. Right now we wait for HD2 DLPs, but I question how long the actual wait for a native 1080p projector will be? At least in the 5-10k range. Are they already out and am I missing them?


I'm not one to procrastinate into the future, but I have figured I should set my entry point into HT at the highest HT signal. I can wait that long if it will be a few more years, since I still need to put together my audio system (thank god that doesnt change too radically through time :)). I'm just saving up now, and am curious as to what I'll be saving up for.


I know it's a loose time with no hddvd standard yet, not to mention a questionable future for the current hdtv standard. But since I won't live for ever (I'm already 18 :p), and since I believe 1920x1080 is plenty detail for my personal cinema (though I am aware of film's capabilties in terms of resolution, but hey that's a 100' screen), what exactly am I waiting for?


I guess it would just be nice to have something as a goal.


Oh also, OLED is slowly growing, (though we might see sony replace their Direct Views, Plasmas, and LCDS with it before 2004), does anyone know if it's capable of being implemented into a projector? I figure it has the brightness, but I know about the heat problems and blue bleeding etc.


Thanks,


Cyphatic


P.S. I'm not sure about everything so dont take me seriously about anything :D

My understanding of seeing native 1920x1080 projectors is way off.. I think Ti has the chips but feels there isnt a demand for it. I think it will be a while before we see one in the 5-10k range if and when they come out.. As for right now just go with a 720p native projector.. I think you will find that plenty stunning image quality wise..

At the end of June, the JVC 9000 HD PVR should be comming to market. Dual tuners, 80/120 gig hard drive. Works with E*. If you want ot start your HD viewing, you may want to look into this new toy.

The 921 HD PVR from E* is not scheduled to be here 'til end of year, first quarter of next year.

Cheers, VB

I recall reading somewhere on this forum that a manufacturer (Epson?) should be producing 1920x1080 LCD panels within the next year.

For clearing everything up. Yes, it's just that I know for the next half decade I'm only going to be getting one video solution, so I figure it would be better to hold out a year or two for something that would really satisfy my needs. Ill check out the JVC. Thanks.

I have OrganicLED in my phone (Motorola), and it's stunning. I believe this technology was borrowed from the firefly.


I do not see how it could work in a projector, but then again, I never would have believed LCOS would work.

I am pretty sure there are no 1080p broadcasts in Japan; as far as I can tell everything is 1080i. I read recently that there is a strong likelihood that the scheduled 2003 rollout for OTA HDTV will not happen for most of the areas initially planned for.

Milton,


the point is that with proper 3-2 pulldown all 1080I material made from "film" sources can become instant 1080P. In that sense, there's a TON of 1080P material out there ready for viewing...given the proper playback hardware to take full advantage.

My point was that HDTV broadcasts in Japan are mostly the same as HDTV broadcasts in the US i.e. 1080i; I am well aware that 1080p24 should be relatively simply to produce from film sourced 1080i and I look forward to the day when I can view it in my home theater. Since he did not specify a frame rate behind the 1080p he could very well have been saying that Japan is broadcasting 1080p60. I would love to use an HTPC to "line double" video source 1080i (like the Mariner's home games that are broadcast here in HDTV) but I have read that the PCI bus doesn't have enough bandwidth even if the processor and software are up to the task; there used to be talk about the possibility of having an HDTV tuner card communicate directly with the graphics/video card via a VIP 2.0 connection but it looks as if most of the industry has given up on that idea since no HDTV tuner card that I can find has a VIP 2.0 port (many of them have the VIP 1.1 port) and the only graphics/video card that MIGHT have a working VIP 2.0 port is the upcoming Matrox.
