JVC DLA- X7900 vs Sony VPL-VW360ES vs Epson EH-LS10000

If it's like recent JVC series, the top two models have dual irises, so you can set one manually and have the other on dynamic.

When you manually set the iris they both still do move together. The one you can actually see is manually controlled and also will move when its in dynamic mode, the inner most iris which you cant see, also moves manually but that will be static depending on where the iris was set in manual mode before you engage the DI mode. Either that or they will still both move when the DI is active.

 

"With every click, the front iris closes one click and with every 2 clicks the rear iris moves. When set to Auto 1 or Auto 2, the rear iris stays fixed wherever you have the numerical setting but the front iris still functions dynamically"

Yes, closing down the iris is how the JVC 9900 can natively go from 40k to 160k:1 and this is even before you turn on the DI, when you do, it will go up to nearly 400,000:1

 

The Sony 360 will do more like 16k-19k:1, and then with the DI to maybe 60-70k:1 (they have a MUCH lower dynamic multiplier real world than JVC) depending on iris setting, much less.

 

The JVC 7/9 series has a 2nd iris which you cant see well inside the light path, when you close down the iris both of these work together to drastically increase the contrast ratio as the light output lowers.

 

The common scenario for a 7 or 9 series at the throw I know you are going to put it, you would likely be watching SDR in low lamp -8 or -10 on the iris to get 16fl peak white, that will get you between 60 and 80k:1 most likely. The Sony in the same spot would be around 17k:1 and the Sony 760 in the same spot due to the fact you would need to reduce the laser power would likely only be around 15k:1. The Sony actually loses contrast when you turn down the laser output.

Geez, both the Sony and JVC figures sound pretty good to me, coming from an edge LED flat panel with a poor, very inconsistent, uneven 3k:1

Tech moves fast doesn't it?   I  happened to catch a demo of  a Panasonic OLED UHD with individual pixel mapping and a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1  with HDR material. It was breathtaking. I know they played a carefully selected video to show it at its best, but I didnt care!

I was waiting so long for OLED to become realised for televisions, since the 90s. Then they came along, and first thing they did was these silly curved screen, followed by one decent generation, but too small for HT, followed by them then unneccessarily dropping 3D support (something I'm pretty certain they could still all do with an optional JVC like 3D dongle and RF and firmware, and no additional hardware). I had planned my movie room nearly as long, and was originally planning for a projector, but a few years back I thought I wouldn't have to worry, I could just get a huge direct view OLED and be done with it. Now, if you want 3D, you only have one option.

So you're saying you have been stuck in analysis paralysis since the 90's??

Dude.

Just get something and sit back and enjoy life.

No, I have been enjoying myself. This was my long term plan and I had a hell of a lot to get done on the house including having it raised, extended and built under, and other projects before I did the room. This is the last room. So no interference from spouse or other projects. I've been following the tech for that time, and buying and upgrading lounge room gear. As far as projector research and analysis, only since September last year when I started room construction and fit out, and I've been busy with that since. And my pan was to leave the projector until last when I was ready giving me the most time to decide and find something.

mobe if you have put off getting a projector and a fan of 3D you are likely in for a treat. I have had 3D on a projector since when first released on consumer projectors and can tell you there is no way flat panels can compete. with a projector you get a whole room experience just like do with 3D audio. by comparison a flat panel for 3D  is like looking at one of those pop up kids book in the such smaller scale it is ! 

3D has also come a long way in generations and have seen that myself in in projectors I own. and to the point I do not miss at all that flat panels dont do 3D as really dont miss that they cant !

Honestly I am looking forward to 3d on it more than 4k hdr...

 

I haven't put it off at all. I just left it until I was ready, time, projects, and financially. My room is more or less ready. I am just waiting on my couch order (another 4 weeks damn it), and the screen (shipping tomorrow). If I had the projector right now, I wouldn't be ready to use it.

That's definitely the right way to do it...

I take it the consensus on 3d with the JVC is better than Sony? Cross talk etc?

people have already answered this for you ?. both here and avs. 3D is pretty mature on these unless you are starting to want to split hairs or something.

My JVC 7900 arrived yesterday and OMG

 

It is currently projecting only an almost black wall and the picture still looks awesome! Can't wait until I get a real screen.

 

Speaking of screens, am I being ridiculous considering at 135cm cinemascope screen (2.35:1), with a seating distance of 3.5 - 3.6m?

 

It looks great while projected onto a dark wall - do you think it will cause us to fatigue when it is projected onto https://www.projectorscreens.com.au/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=42

I'm using an earlier model but projecting onto a 130" scope screen and sitting ~4m away. Moving house soon and will be moving closer to the screen in new room. I think you're on the right track.

congrats ward !!

 

you are ideally placed with a blank wall to try out for size...

 

if want buy a cheap bedsheet and tape up to the wall and use for a little while with a variety of viewing as you would watch. decide for yourself whether the size considering suits you for viewing distance. its quite a personal thing and we all have our own thresholds :)

I'm the same as @Quark. Currently sitting at 4m viewing a 130 inch cinemascope screen. When I say "sitting " , I mean my eyes are at 4m.

I just tried sitting on the front of the seat so my eyes are at 3.5m.

I would have no problem with this.( swmbo not so much,lol)

Ymmv.

Btw, congratulations. Enjoy.

Congrats on the new PJ!   With screen size, dont forget that there will be 16X9 material and if that will be a lot of what you watch, I think its better to go as big as you can.  My reasoning is that there is a minimum size of 16x9 I am happy with, and then use a cinemascope screen with the same height .   For example, if 110" is the magic 16x9 screen, then 140" cine will  give the same height
