I forgot to even check back here after I deleted the post. Oops!However the mediablock is modular,so you can buy a new one. I remember Peter (Cineramax) recently posted Barco supports HDMI 2.0 with HDCP 2.2 on its new integrated mediablock. The other DCi brands are to wait for an upgrade by Dolby's Doremi, he added. I don't know if there are any commercial units from the big brands that have modular inputs that may have an upgrade comming soon.
What deleted now I replied;-).
Do you know if these filters can be purchased independently? And if the Christie model you mention, without the filter, is at 100% of the rec 709 color space or something else.The Christie HD-*KM models have yellow notch filters for DCI color space, along with the DPI Titan models, however neither have HDCP 2.2.
a notch filter will get close to p3 during a brief lifespan of the uhp bulbs and or if frequently recalibrating, you should get spectroradiometer plots of the actual coverage of the dci traingle from manufacturers with such yellow notch filters. Brightness and ansi contrast hits are another matter.I'm fairly certain he was thinking something ala Sim2 Lumis in regards to "3-Chip DLP", not commercial 3-chippers like a Barco or Christie. In the under ~$60000 market I can only think of a few projectors that officially support P3; Runco Q750i and various clones built on the same Delta OEM projector, Epson LS10000 and the Sony VPL-VW1000ES/VW1100ES.
From what I'm told, the native color gamut of the JVC DiLA projectors is actually as large or a bit larger than P3 without additional filtering. But they don't allow you access to the native gamut. But now that they may be moving to a laser/phosphor wheel combo I don't know if that will change things for JVC.
I'm sure we'll see a handful more announced at CEDIA this fall as we're all guessing P3 will be the color gamut first used when UHD blu-ray hits the shelves. Or maybe even REC709 for the initial offerings with P3 to follow suit soon afterwards. Though to get P3 or REC709 out of the REC2020 triangle we're going to need SMPTE 2084 meta data.
I know when I had the Christie HD6K-M we left the notch filter in place and calibrated to Rec 709. This was a while ago and there were no DCI/P3 sources to feed the projector as it was not DCI compliant. I do recall that in the brochure one of the features was DCI color space.Do you know if these filters can be purchased independently? And if the Christie model you mention, without the filter, is at 100% of the rec 709 color space or something else.
My cheap w1070 projector supports 10-bit color input (probably through dithering), and has more than enough lumens to handle a drop due to a color conversion filter, so I'm looking for a cheap DIY way to do this myself and hopefully others can benefit too.
I'm actually not even sure if I'd need to add some processing to the mix. I mean if 0-1023 intensity on each of the colors used to map to Rec 709, then a filter makes the primary 1023 value of the R,G,B color coordinates to P3, I wonder if that would just work out of the box.
Yellow Notch Filters are not an easy thing to source, I've tried a couple projector / lens manufacturers and didn't make much headway yet. Not giving up though.
Meanwhile, for those who are interested, I created a thread to discuss it here.
Also, the makers of HD Fury seem interested in this project, because it seems a natural fit with their Integral HDCP 2.2 stripper / splitter and could help them sell more product if it means a cheap DIY DCI P3 upgrade to people's 1080p rec 709 projectors to stave off obsolescence for another year or two, for the UHD Bluray era.
