  1. JVC autocal

    It makes sense to measure and adjust the reflected light off the screen given that is what you watch.
  2. Isf Calibration Basics

    Yeah wow, I don't think there is anyone up that way and a long way to go for a single calibration job. TV or projector?
  3. Isf Calibration Basics

    Where are you? The page used be by country and then would list every ISF dealer in Australia. It seems the page now finds locals using an IP address.
  4. Isf Calibration Basics

    You can find a list of ISF certified calibrators in your area by going to https://imagingscience.com/dealers/
  5. Ideally you would have two different calibrated modes. Practically, you will probably be better off to use "native" now as you are sending two different colour spaces - 709 for BD and 2020 for UHD discs (assuming they are 2020 and not 1886), otherwize you will be forced to go into the menu and manually the colour space settings. The players outputs also affect the result.
  6. JVC autocal

    JVC have come such a long way since the introduction of the RS1 back in 2006(?) The idea of auto cal is fantastic. However I have two issues I have with this - 1. only one type of meter works (is it really the best in the price range?) with the software and 2. the set up requires you take the readings directly in the light path instead of reading the reflected light off the screen. This 2nd point is quite important as different screens will ultimately give a slightly different result. Grey in video is D6500K or x:0.313, y:0.329 and whilst the software/sensor combo will achieve this for the direct light readings, what happens to the actual screen reading? In real watching, you are looking at the light reflecting off the screen, not looking into the light from the lens of the projector. The gamma software that you upload and tweak is amazing and I wish it worked for every projector out there given so many now have data ports.
  7. Anyone in the Gold Coast?

    Are any dates set? GC is only 45min drive from my home on the south side of Brissie, so I would like to attend of possible.
  8. Oppo Uhd 4K Player

    Anyone using an anamorphic lens tried out the beta FW? They have added a "fixed lens" option to complement the moveable option (vertical stretch) that these players have had for a few models.
  9. I don't a JVC but I do have and have used the software to set up these for HDR.
  10. And rightly so, especially when running UHD at 60fps.
  11. I don't think I missed your point at all and in fact was reinforcing it. Yes, HDR does NOT work on projectors on big screens. Out of curiosity, what size is your screen Owen? Also, do you have full light control now? My comments are aimed right at the Optoma UHD65 (I have not had the chance to test a UHD60 yet), not JVC or any other brand. From what I have seen, not great on HDR source material due to lack of brightness and contrast - the blacks actually suck on this projector regardless of the published contrast ratio. The OPPO 203/205 (basically a HTPC in a box with out the BS of a PC) has the ability to reduce and even strip out HDR and I would almost suggest this is a better way to go on THIS projector than trying to make it work when the lumens simply are not there. Where this projector does stand up is on the ability to produce sharp images. Like all the UHD projectors I've seen, this is no slouch for jaggie free, fine details. This is however the first single chip DLP I've seen. All the others have been 3 chip systems from SONY, Epson and JVC. Regardless, I feel the lens might be letting this one down. Then again, it is also RRP $5300AUD and you DO get what you pay for.
  12. I have to agree with Owen. The more time I spend with "HDR projectors", the less I think they are capable of doing the job. They just do not out put the light required. I have been able to watch the Optoma UHD65 and after today, I am glad the OPPO 203 has the ability to turn HDR off.
  13. Curved Projector Screen

    As said, once CinemaScope became the main wide screen format, curved screens were installed in cinemas to correct pincushion created by the 2x anamorphic lenses needed for CinemaScope projection. In the home, if you have a fixed anamorphic (as I do), then a curved screens is a must have IMO. If you don't have an A-Lens or move that lens for 16:9, then you might want to consider staying with a traditional flat screen. This is my screen (modded OzTS screen) where the curve is matched the to the pincushion to give straight horizontal lines.
  14. The marketing of these under "4k" annoys me. They should be calling it either UHD or 2016P. 4K is 4096. At this time, only SONY offer true 4K (4096 x 2160 = 17:9 BTW) projectors. JVC does have a 4096 chips as well, but theirs is a 16:10 device, not 16:9.
