So; since I have one heading our direction soon I was thinking that an owners thread was in place!
The VPL-GTZ380 is Sony´s new prosumer 10k lumen laser projector. Featuring red and blue native lasers plus green through phosphor, this machine enables full light output @ DCI P3, meaning all the available light output can be put to use for P3 colours. Although one might have wished for full RGB lasers, this is certainly quite a step up from its predecessor, VPL-VW5000ES, both in terms of overall light output and the fact that it can maintain P3 without the use of a filter that reduces light output significantly.
I have seen the VPL-GTZ380 on two occasions, but not yet the actual production unit, so can´t wait to see this baby up and runnin´! We will be installing it in our soon-to-be-built new reference room on a 3,5m wide acoustical transparent screen (UltraWeave v7), hoping for some >400 nits on that particular 0.93 gain screen.
Contrast measurements - TBA - (some state about 17.000:1), we will measure ours to verify.
Will add more info on this first post as more measurements and impressions from owners becomes available.
