If someone gets a chance, I would appreciate a good deep-dive into the unit's ability to scale to the width of the chip (4096) vs non-scaled (3840).  Is there any apparent sharpness loss this way?  I'm referring to actual 4K content (not 1080p).  Due to my room dimensions, when I eventually upgrade, I do not have enough throw with these new units so I would have to using the 4096 scaling to fit my screen - at least for scope.  Thanks.

Dave, for what it's worth I am using the scaling to 4096 to get a smidge more brightness and going back and forth could not see any difference but, I did not do a deep dive as you say with test patterns and pixel peeping.  I didn't see any artifacts from my seated position at 11-1/2 feet back at 117" wide image.  It looks great IMHO.

That's encouraging to hear, Tom.  I sit about 9.5 to 10 feet back from a 108" wide screen.

I've posted some recommended settings and observations in the JVC 2019 calibration thread. More to follow... :)

Posted detailed brightness and contrast measurements in the calibration thread. I'll try to post more calibration measurements tomorrow...

Thanks for your measurements. Lots of detailed information in there. I'm going to try and attempt a calibration this weekend. I really haven't looked at any test patterns yet except a couple to be sure the RS2000 can do 1:1 pixel mapping. I'm going to double check tonight that my black level isn't raised with the default brightness setting of 0. The eshifters had no issue there so I didn't even think to check that with some of the causal viewing I've done so far. If that's the case, I'm going to have to remeasure my unit as I suspect  this has thrown my numbers off a bit. Ive been so busy with work this week I havent had time to power my RS2000 up much.

With the x00 series I definitely saw differences in what brightness setting should be. There was no set it and forget it on that model for some reason. With the x40 series I believe it was -1.

Thanks, I guess it was lucky that my rs500 behaved like all my previous JVCs, i.e. didn't raise the black floor with brightness=0.


It's one of the first things I check on every single PJ, and with the rs2000 it's the first time I had to lower brightness from the default.

Does anyone know if there is an official form/application yet for US based owners to claim the free lamp?

I think I solved the mystery of the filter numbers being all over the place!

Details in the calibration thread, with lots of measurements explaining, if confirmed, why the numbers go from 10% to 25%...

I don't think I'll keep posting these updates here, as I assume that by now those interested in calibration, settings and measurements will have subscribed to the calibration thread. But I think this is important enough to be mentioned here.

There certainly is.  I got mine from my dealer when I got the projector a month ago and I've had the lamp for a couple of weeks.

I've just posted some first impressions (it's a draft) in the calibration thread while we wait for Dylan's fuller, more comprehensive review.

Here is the tldnr: I'm super happy with my rs2000! :)
