For those that use the Projector Central Calculator, the lumen output that Projector Central was using has been adjusted to give more accurate numbers for FL.

Found this on 4K.com and found it really interesting to see on one screenshot pic comparing the different media resolution...

As well I found this older but interesting article about HDR vs SDR further strengthening the theory/thought that maxing out the brightness in HDR is not a great thing and that SDR/4K may be the way to go...

Read the article, at least with front projection, most of us have good light controlled rooms. We are not watching TV's in rooms with ambient light, so while we can't go as bright as a TV, we also do not have to, due to our viewing conditions. We still need more brightness though.

I wonder why they dont use some of the movie material comparing HD vs. UHD, instead of using the pic of the front cover and manipulate it.

Its getting a bit tiresome to see how they try to make HD worse than it is, a bit like they like to run HDR on bigger screens, and prefer to calibrate the HD one so it looks worse. Is UHD really so bad they need to do all those tricks to sell it.?

Anyway if his skin is really starting to look as bad/ artificial as the UHD example try to ilustrate, i guess he will have to get some treatment.

Glad to be joining another forum for AV discussion.  My RS600 is still going strong after 10 months.  I need to run JVC autocal to correct for some droop in gamma.  Like some others I'm waiting for the Oppo UHD Blu-ray player to replace my Samsung.

So I have read through a good chunk of the 16,000+ posts on AVSforum and hundreds on AVforums and am on the fence as to whether to go for the RS500 or wait till next generation.

I currently have an RS15 shooting from ~18ft onto a 120" Carada BW in a light controlled room, seating at 11 ft and 17 ft.  My current bulb is getting old and weak.  Everytime I get to that point of buying a new bulb I consider upgrading the projector.

I am literally about to order it tomorrow morning, but I'm a bit concerned regarding all the "optimizing" (or fidgeting??) that seems to be necessary to get this projector up to snuff....It seems part of the problem is this was released obviously prior to any UHD BR players so there has been some hiccough getting everyone in the chain to get along.

On the Plus side, though, this projector is "mature" now and has many of the bugs worked out.  Whenever you buy a spanking newly released projector it doesn't have this "benefit",

So as current RS500 owners - if you weren't already - would you jump in now, this late in the season, or try to resist the urge and wait one more year.  (Obviously you can wait forever if you play the wait-and-see-what's-released-next-generation game . . . . Just trying to sense where on the "curve" of cutting edge to mature this is!)

Many thanks!!!!

The messing around with projector settings has to do with HDR. I do not see that changing anytime soon, for the projector market. That is because projector setup vary in brightness, due to screen size, projector used, screen gain and throw distance. This means, you can't have one setting that works for all. Also unless your screen was small and had positive gain, then you are not going to have enough brightness to get all the benefit of HDR. We would be happy to discuss this with you. Just give us a call.

Well... All I can say having started with a used RS25 from a buddy yeeears ago, then all versions of this current chassis (RS50,55,56,57, now RS500), would be to...

(especially this late in the year you should be able to get a Great deal on one [i'd go for refurb IMO if Mike has one], and given the high price of laser it could be more than a few years before anything rivals what we have now given the price... this version will absolutely blow your doors off.... even with it's play-n-play modes & no fiddling!)   ;)

My guess is that next year's projectors will be an incremental  improvement over this years, like every year. With the only true 4K projectors you actually want ( as opposed to those with poor black levels / striped out irises to lower cost ) being between $ 15K and $60K, it will be a few years before true 4K with excellent black levels are " affordable ". So, no reason not to get a current model, as I don't see anything changing at more than the usual glacial pace.
