  1. JVC will soon introduce their new native 4K D-ILA projector with a laser light source or BLUEscent technology as they call it. It will be HDR compatible with DCI-P3 colour space. The BLUEscent JVC projector is similar to a lamp-based JVC projector except that the lamp, which produced white light, is replaced with a solid state light module consisting of a laser block and a phosphor wheel. The BLUEscent engine features a reflective phosphor wheel rather than a transmissive one used in some competitive designs. As the reflective approach reduces optical loss and increases luminance ef
  2. Could be a faulty capacitor on the power supply board. Contact BenQ Service Centre @ 6506 3196 /6506 3187.
  3. Well, personally I find no reasons to believe that DTS has opted for an easy way out and adopted the channel-based format similar to AURO3D. "I recall Dave Casey of DTS did mention during a Q&A session last year Apr 2015 that DTS:X upgrade for AVR's already in the field may have to subscribe to the predetermined speaker layouts that are currently in the market. For new AVR's and as manufacturers begin to design AVR systems around the new flexibility of DTS:X's object-based program that we can see support for unbound speaker layouts. The reason I suspect could in part be due to
  4. Optoma showed off the first DLP 4K projector for Home Theatre at the recent CES 2016. Now BenQ, another DLP projector manufacturer, will introduce their version of this DLP 4K projector using the same TI's new 0.67" 4K DLP chip at ISE 2016 from Feb 9-12. Glad to see competiton coming in this new wave of "affordable" 4K projector and anxious to find out if they can show up to expectations in true 4K performance with HDMI 2.0a, HDCP2.2, HDR and WCG. "Groundbreaking 4K Projector and True Videophile-Grade Home Theatre. BenQ is proud to introduce the flagship W11000 4K UHD reference
  5. Optoma's new DLP 4K projector was a working prototype presented at CES in an acrylic housing - a work-in-progress at the moment and does not have an actual model number yet. It is quite a small unit and seen hung from the ceiling at the show. Believe target price is between USD5-7K and scheduled for release in 3rd quarter this year, most probably at Cedia 2016. It uses an LED light source, covers the DCI colour space and supports High Dynamic Range (HDR), as well as 3D. The projector uses Texas Instruments new XPR (eXpanded Pixel Resolution) technology and includes HDMI 2.0a inputs with s
  6. Optoma has announced they will showcase a 4K home projector using a single-chip DLP at CES 2016, Wed 6 Jan next week. Hopefully this will be within our reach in our wait to upgrade to 4K. :) ;D "Experience a true 4K UHD projector with eight million pixels using high definition single chip DLP Technology. This projector has precise pixel alignment and no HUE purple effect thanks to the DLP Technology advantages. “Right now you only see premium format cinema screens using this technology.” says Jon Grodem, Senior Director of Product Management. We are the first DLP projector manufacturer
  7. The 4K UHD Bluray releases will feature 4K resolution and HDR (high dynamic range). Sony's first 6 titles will be available in “early 2016” instead of late 2015. Some of the movies will also offer object-based audio such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. 4K UHD Blurays may be region-free. Sony’s first 6 UHD Blu-ray releases include: * The Amazing Spider-Man 2 * Salt * Hancock * Chappie * Pineapple Express * The Smurfs 2 The above first six titles will be followed by new release titles and TV content, says Sony. The company points out that it already has an extens
  8. HDCP2.2 is mentioned in Sony (X9000 and 85000 series) and Panasonic (CX800,700 and 600 series) TV specs on their websites. Samsung (JS9000, HU7000 series) has it stated in their user i-manuals which can be downloaded from their website. Not sure about LG. https://www.sony.co.in/product/kd-55x9000c?hpid=bravia:hub:kd-55x9000c http://www.panasonic.com/sg/consumer/television/led-tv/th-55cx700s.html

  10. 4D ? Have heard about 3D immersive sound. What's this 4th dimension? Would like to know this additional dose of poison as well ;D
  11. Choosing the right screen size can be a difficult decision. Professor HT demystifies this process in this short video on how to choose the proper screen size based on your viewing distance. "While a viewing distance of 1.5x the screen width is comfortable for many people, some want to sit closer, say at about 1.3x, or even 1.2x the screen width. Others might feel more comfortable with a screen that takes up a smaller angle of view, and sit back at 1.75x, or even 2.0x the screen width. The farther back you sit, the less work your eyes must do to absorb the entire screen im
  12. True, the price should drop once the novelty wears off. Maybe bulb manufacturers will come up with a laser-phosphor light module that can be used to retrofit a lamp-based projector. Don't need 5,000 lumens, lower power that can replace a UHP bulb to produce 1,000 - 2,000 lumens will be nice.
  13. I find it difficult to understand why a laser light source has to cost so much more. The concept or technology behind it looks quite simple. Instead of a normal UHP bulb, Sony uses a blue laser that strikes a yellow phosphor plate which then glows white to produce the white light source similar to that produced by the UHP bulb. The rest of the projector is actually similar to that used in a bulb-based projector. LED light bulbs use the same concept but instead of the blue laser, home LED lights, I was told, use a blue LED with a yellow phosphor coating to produce the white ligh
  14. Yes Jag, I think reyulin in his other thread: http://www.xtremeplace.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=215261.0, has mentioned he prefers a LCD projector as he is afraid DLP's rainbow effect will harm the eyes of his 2 toddlers. He has in mind the Epson TW6600 which can only give him a 80+" screen size in his living room with a throw distance of max 2.7m (he later corrected it to 2.6m).
  15. Please recommend reyulin a LCD Home Theatre projector that can project a 100" picture at throw distance of 2.6M before we talk about a 100" screen.
