When it comes to judging the picture quality of either a television or projector, the impact of incorrect picture settings cannot be underestimated. For this reason, every display we review at StereoNET is ISF Calibrated before we make any judgements regarding picture quality.
All measurements of the Sony VPL-VW270ES were completed with an xrite i1Pro 2 spectroradiometer and x-rite i1 display Pro colourimeter (profiled with the i1Pro 2). The meters were tripod mounted, enabling measurements to be taken directly from the screen (Severtson 100” fixed CineGray screen).
Colour, Gamma, Grayscale and Luminance measurements were taken using 10% window patterns. Meter integration times were measured, and final readings taken from a mean of two readings to reduce anomalies.”
Most vitally, image quality here is tremendous. I don’t mind admitting that I’m a fan of 3LCD. Single-chip DLP projectors may have the edge when it comes to absolute sharpness, principally because there are no alignment issues, but 3LCD isn’t subject to rainbow fringing, and colour fidelity tends to be excellent.
Picture presets are Dynamic, Bright Cinema, Natural, Cinema and Digital Cinema. I found the Cinema mode a little too dull for most source content, but Natural, Digital Cinema and Bright Cinema all provide satisfactory jumping off points for movie and TV shows.
