Next Big Thing in 20/21 - HDMI2.1?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I've had a few projectors over the years, I started with 1080p Panasonic, upgraded to a BenQ and now I'm using the Viewsonic Px727-4k, which I love, incredible value.

 

It's looking like corona virus may be slowing the release of some 2020 models. I've got my eye on the Viewsonic x100-4k as my next PJ (pending reviews) as it has some amazing numbers/features. The LGHu70 looks pretty good too.

 

I'm a big gamer, and was wondering when you think projectors are going to take advantage of some of the HDMI 2.1 features that next gen consoles will use such as 'VRR'. 

 

Also, wondering what projectors are you guys looking forward to? Are you holding off for any new tech in particular?

 

😊

Most here tend to favour projectors with good black levels Mullins ; hence JVC;s and even Epsons at a lower price have much to recommend[ including lumens for better hdr] ;  dlp like viewsonic have good features but lack good contrast  and expanded colour gamut [rec709 only] so cant quite take advantage of btr2020 dci p3 like others can .. As always different features may appeal though .

HDMI 2.1 will be awhile away ; it hasnt turned up yet in avr;s and big ce;s get the lions share of chipsets at 1st 

There is a pent up demand for lower priced 4k laser projectors as they have certain advantages over globe ones :) And a JVC globe price is just one ..

The short throw laser projector is a niche that has legs though as evidenced by LG's large screen tv replacement HU70 as you said = a likely 8k model when Texas instruments get around to it like samsung has already - just the thing for 100" +
