So, the 20K:1 unit seems to be a "golden sample" for sure, the other six 260´s (285) we have calibrated has ended up between 12-14K1. The two 360´s (385s) we have calibrated thus far ended up at about 22K:1.

The 760 we installed was the preproduction one, and as such I will not post any contrast measurements for it. What I CAN say is that the previous guys that had this projector - not sure who - most certainly did not have the equipment needed to calibrate lasers at their calibrations were really way off. Still, using our new CR spectro profiling the K10A I have to say it did look quite nice. Lens had some issues, so not razor sharp as was the case for the 260 and 360, but still quite promising for the final version...

Nice one Jon! Well that's a reason to find the extra cash to buy a 360/385 as compared with a 260/285 right there. That's a pretty sizeable difference in native contrast performance between the two projectors.

I believe that was a certain somebody who used a Klein 10A without profiling it first using a quality spectro like you have there, which kinda confirms what we already know, namely that it's fundamentally important to do so or else your calibration will be all out of whack.

Wow, it's very common for the out-of-the-box gamma to be tracking about two points out, but 2.6 when set to 2.2? Yikes...  :o

I guess that's +1 for the JVCs; and all the more reason why if you go Sony you really need it calibrated... The same typically applies to Sony's TVs, the out-of-the-box settings are abysmal, especially regarding grayscale  ;)

But with both Sony projectors and TVs post-calibration the performance is excellent  :)

Before and after for a VW285 attached, and most of them track gamma similarly "out-of-the-box" (with that heavy S-curve)... But after calibration, completely agreed, looks great...

...and we always run the projectors 40-50 hours prior to calibrating them by the way (we pre-calibrate most projectors that is shipped out from our distribution central in a custom build "calibration simulator" as traveling the countryside in Norway is quite the feat... ;))...

...and here are some of the charts from the 760, which was "calibrated" at another launch event somewhere using gear that obviously did not work!

Got a 760 and compare it with my 520 that was one year and some moths old.

As I have a 7 Meter wide screen I put both Pr. under ideal condition to the screen and each Pr. made a
3.5 meter wide screen.
Than this pictures are made with a 50MP Canon and bring down to 8K resolution.
When you download this pictures you can get the full 8K resolution!
UPDATE: 8K not works I post the 4K Version.
Please note that the 520 was one year under very worst condition (big humidity and no use) the 750 is brand new.

Try one 8K again with more compression but it not works.

I found out today from Chris Cooly that Sony will give you for free if you ask software that will allow you to stack or overlap two of their 4K projectors. The software works on all of their 4k projectors.  I believe this is the same software used to align Sonys 4k Cinema projectors. The end result is perfect alignment. This is very interesting. Mayer, you could stack both projectors for a nice bright picture with good contrast on your big screen.

This Software only works with the VW5000 so far I know.

Thanks for side comparison where  clearly is visible  deeper blacks and more color. That was also a first thing that i noticed when switched from 520 to 760 last week!

You should change a VW760 HDMI setting to enhanced mode then YCbCr will go trough 4:4:4 instead of 4:2:2 at 24p

Hi Mayer, Hope you are well! Been a while since we spoke.

I spoke with the Sony engineering team. The "Projector Calibration Pro" software has the Stacking "Panel Alignment" feature. They have confirmed it works with all their 4K projectors. And not just current models either. Even the older 4K models.
