Cost Effective 10k - 12k lumen projectors?
« on: August 31, 2010, 08:11:11 pm »

What are the best cost effective 10,000 to 12,000 lumen projectors on the market at the moment? DLP or LCD/LCD+ content is mainly IMAG reinforcement in concert work.

What do you feel defines "best"?  What are you looking for in terms of format (4:3, 16:9 or 16:10), resolution, inputs and throw distance/lens?

Concert work indoors/outdoors? Outdoors your gonna need a brighter projector then 12k if it's still somewhat daylight.

Our cameras are still SD so 4:3 at the moment, but forward thinking 16:9 down the road might be a option to keep on the back burner, screens upto ~ 15'x20' with 20'-35' throws..

Dave,

We've had great experience with the Panasonic DW100 which is a 10k lumen piece 16:9.  Also had good experience with the SanyoPLC XF46N which is a 12k 4:3 product.

Care to elaborate (even with vague details) on the new Sanyo product?
