Lot of guys waiting on the pricing. Had hoped we would have it this week, but was told a couple days ago that it would be next week.

No biggie, I'm not in a rush or anything anyway, I was just asking questions and that one sort of popped out ;)

2)  Are there any details about the HDR/DI HDR updates?  Are they (largely) from the RS4500 or are they basically the same as the x20/x00?
 - On the 540/640, the choice of HDR Color Profile (Best Brightness) or BT2020 Profile (Widest Color Gamut) idea comes from the 4500.  On all models, improved DI performance with HDR is a direct result of feedback from customers.

You know, I thought of a better way to ask what I'm wondering....

On the 4500, is the DI algorithm different for HDR vs SDR?  And if so (well really regardless) what about the x40s?

I'm curious because the existing DI on my RS600 seems to be biased toward not compressing highlights, not closing down until things are very, very dark.  However with HDR, where "normal" white is only at about 50%, it would seem you could bias your DI algorithm toward not raising black levels.  I guess what I'm curious about is if the DI for HDR will ride somewhat closed most of the time vs my 600 where it's "open" most of the time.

Can't really say what the difference would be on the 40 series vs the RS4500. And right now I use mode 2 for HDR, and mode 1 for 1080p, since mode 2 is a bit too aggressive on 1080p ( it can close down too much at times ).

Sorry if I missed it, but is there an ETA on pre-orders being delivered to dealers/customers? I would love to check one of these units out. I'm sure both the 440 and 540 will be excellent performers, especially if eshift 5 has been improved!

Great! That's a lot sooner than most years. I can remember some years where people weren't taking possession until Christmas or soon after.

Yep, no one will be wondering if they are going to get their new shiny projector before Christmas or not. :)
If you order, we can guarantee delivery way before then. :)

Questions regarding these new 540s. Since they are coming with preset hdr modes.

When you are using the autocal do you run them on these as well?
