Any chance of this happening at CEDIA? Should we expect any advancements on the LED DLP front? Maybe double the lumens with 3D?


Even a wink would be good enough for me



The more I watch my Optoma 8200, the more I realize I'm a DLP guy. I just find the depth and pop of DLP hard to beat, and I'm hoping for an LED solution.

No Vango 2 :_(


From the Sim2 brochures handed out today:


Mico 160

"super Pure LED"

Lumens 1000

3d

>100,000:1 contrast ratio

Lumis electronics processing

compression, mosquito noise control and adv sharpness and texture detail enhancement

LAN control


Mico 150

same as above without compression, mosquito and sharpness enhancement

no lan


Mico 140

Pure LED ( 800 lumens)


3D on all lumis projectors including Uno


no fancy demo room on show floor. will talk to reps to see if any darkroom demo is available.

Wow, 1000 lumens from an LED projector? Quite impressive...

Is the Sim2 150/160 3 chip dlp design? Or is it singel chip still using pt120 driven "super hard" ?

JP,


There is no reason to have a 3 chip LED as the LEDs are RGB. That would add a lot of money for very little payoff. I am not saying it can or should not be done on ultra high end machines, but at this time and light output levels there is no reason.

Actually, given the relatively lower light outputs of LED machines, wouldn't a 3-chip design make more sense? This way all 3 LEDs could be driven simultaneously rather than sequentially, or more than one LED could be used per chip to boost light output? I'm sure projector designers have thought of this and there's some reason why it hasn't been done, but I'm just thinking out loud.

With a 3 chip design,it will be a litle brighter.But far from 3 times brighter,as one might think.

HP,


I think you said it best. I am sure there are design limitations we do not know about. Also the pulsing is what makes current LED projectors look brighter than they are so a constant on with 3 chip may look the same... ie. brighter, but offset by not having the pulsing effect. Those too are just thoughts.

My point is.I hope the Mico/160 is more than pt120 LED´s driven to the edge..

As far as I know Luminus (Phlatlight) has not released any new chipsets, however, they be keeping quiet until after the projectors are released.

The new Sims use the latest Phlat LEDs which are 30% brighter than the ones previously used. There are rumors of a Phlat competitor intoducing LEDs a year from now that will be 3 times brighter than last year's Phlats. Rumors. Nothing now.

I heard ~ $25K mentioned for the Mico160, which seems unrealistic.

Interested in the 150 which [if you extrapolate the blurb];

combines uniquely the 3d as well as led lighting for hopefully a lot less
I remember the mico 20 was mentioned 2 years ago ;hopefully its morphed into something reasonable

Mark,


Do you oknow if this is a new model i.e. PT-130 or is it the PT-120 chipset with new drivers or just able to drive them harder from the factory?


Thanks
