You notice the 62-80dB Sound Level? :D

And the 20 million:1 Dynamic Contrast, instead of giving Native Contrast like BARCO does?

Hahaha, this projector would definitely be put behind a wall. Real movie theater style.

So what I'm seeing on the web is that this baby sells for around $350k-$400k. I mean, that may look high, but come on, if you want the best you gotta pay up. Would you even need a Lumagen or MadVR processor with this high end projector? Hahaha, see plenty of people on AVS Forums spending $50-$100k on projectors and still needing the video processors to pair. Looking for that perfect picture!

Totally agree. Heck at the very minimum 8k. I mean JVC is giving Faux 8k for $390k less. :D
Lol. No kidding. Granted, the JVC won't heat your house like the Christie will. Nor will it slowly make you go deaf. Granted, 62 db isn't THAT high.

I'm wondering how long it will be before TI gives us a native 4K chip in the consumer realm. As JVC moves forward into an 8K/HDMI 2.1 standard, and pulls the entire market forward, it is very likely we will see a quick response from Sony, and then something will need to give at the lower end from LCD and DLP. Just not sure what.
The crazy native 4K stuff is hardly new. We've seen it for a number of years now, but it's probably not going to be something I will replace my house with anytime soon.

I feel like DLP is running into similar issues as plasma tech did when the 4k stuff started popping up. Maybe there's just a technological limitation that isn't going to let it get there. I really thought we'd see native 4K DLP before now. They say the current crop look great, but I haven't seen one yet to have an opinion.

I love my 1080p DLP PJ. It's been a staple in my house for over a decade, but it's time to replace and a new DLP might not be in the cards. Once the bulb dies, it's gone.

I made the jump from Epson 1080p to JVC 4k this year and what huge improvement it was. Totally worth the jump. Now would be a great time to jump into 4k. With the new JVC lasers coming out, tons of people are selling their NX models. Dealers are selling for great prices to clear out the NX for the new NZ line.

I think Sony is still trying to act like they're the only ones in the market. Their prices just keep going up but I'm not seeing any real improvement with the actual projectors. Besides their new chips. JVC dropping these lasers with 8k e-shift and 4k/120hz in the price range they have, is just game changing. Hopefully Sony wakes up and actually enters the laser market in the $10-$20k range instead of the $25k-$80k range.

I know it'll be a big jump, but since I'm a once a decade PJ purchaser, I'm going to hold out and see what comes up. I would really like to do away with traditional lamps if I could, but I would have zero problems getting an NX model PJ. Used? I don't know, but if I trusted the seller I'd be game.

The Christie Eclipse does not have any Dynamic Contrast functionality. The 20 MILLION:1 is the NATIVE ON/OFF Contrast performance ;)

The operating noise levels are highest with respect to the Chiller which can be situated up to 100 feet away, so in a completely different room. The Christie Eclipse comprises three component parts, namely the Projector Head, Laser Module Rack, and Chiller. These all run on single phase power and will need to be situated within a projection room or booth.

The Christie Eclipse is the ultimate video display. It outperforms all other displays across all formats, including OLED TVs and MicroLED Video Walls.

We are the exclusive worldwide Distributor for Home Theaters. If you are interested in becoming a Dealer for the Christie Eclipse let me know.

We have a fully operational Christie Eclipse demo unit in our Florida Experience Center. You will be most welcome to come and visit and check out its truly incredible video performance.
