JVC also claims that unlike the many other projector that also uses this Texas Instruments DLP chip, the LX-UH1 is able to achieve a 100% of the REC709 colour space which in turn makes it compatible with the fuller, higher specced BT2020 colour space specification. Key important features of the LX-UH1 includes HDR-10 colour expansion algorithm for UHD Blu-ray and Hybrid Log Gamma algorithms for internet sourced 4K programmes.”
“Picture settings can have a massive impact on the image of a projector or television. It can be tempting to judge the image quality of a projector or tv in such areas as colour production or shadow detail, when more often than not the display merely needs proper calibration.
Measurements were performed with an i1Pro 2 Spectroradiometer and/or x-rite display 3 Pro colourimeter, profiled with the i1Pro 2. Both meters were tripod mounted, and measurements were taken directly taken from a 140” 16.9 Screen Technics screen.”
As an alternative to the television, projectors have long held a reputation for being expensive and complex. In their earliest days, when projectors relied on bulky and energy intensive CRT technology, this was often the case. But with the advent of DLP and LCD technologies, the projector has become an increasingly popular option that anyone can use, offering far larger screen sizes (100-inches and above) than possible with a standard LCD or OLED TV.”
Who knows when – or even if – the prices of native 4K projectors will come down to more affordable levels? But for now, the £5200 Sony VPL-VW260ES represents the most affordable end of the spectrum, and makes a strong argument for true-not-faux 4K.”
The UHD60 is brighter than the Epson and BenQ I compared it to in this review, with a 3,000-lumens spec. That allows it to better fill larger screens and compete against ambient light. Optoma also sells the less-expensive 4K resolution UHD50, which uses the smaller 0.47-inch chip and has 2,400 lumens.
The UHD60 sits between the Epson and BenQ in terms of lens options and installation flexibility. It bests the BenQ by offering lens shift and a longer zoom, but can’t match the Epson’s power zoom and focus and dual lens shift. The Optoma also lacks 3D capability.”
