Thank you for visiting our Projector Demo Room, powered by ProjectorPeople.com. This is your very own online demonstration studio featuring the biggest stars in home theater projectors today. We designed our video sample to offer you a wide span of images from deep black colors, colorful scenes, high detail, and fast moving images so that you can compare the projectors performance in varied conditions.
Before you base your final buying decision on what you see here, there are a few things to consider. Color, brightness, artifacts, clarity, and other indicators will have been impacted by the process taken to create the videos in this format. Compression into the smaller size causes additional 'artifacts' in the image which may not be related to the projector's on-site performance. Your computer monitor will also be a variable in the image you see.
That said, we hope this is a useful tool in your buying process. Call a Projector Expert for a first hand account of the performance of any of the projectors you see here. Our experts view and interact with nearly all of the projectors we sell, and their expertise and experience has been invaluable to many of our customers.
In our efforts to produce the most accurate possible representation of our top home theater projectors in action, we followed a few simple rules to help provide 'apples-to-apples' comparison video. Here are a few we followed in each projector we demoed :
Camera : Panasonic HVX200
[ Record Settings : Scene File 1 - Factory Setting. Operation Type - Film Cam. Recording Setup - 1080i/30p ]
In order to determine the proper F-stop for each projector we used color bars before recorded images and projected first. Using the white box in the projected color bars and the zebra function turned on the camera, the exact moment the zebra pattern disappeared became the consistent f-stop, which will be listed in the projector settings below.
