THX Home Cinema Projected Colours more important than resolution?

THX Certified Home Projectors undergo over 400 tests to ensure the richest colors, most optimal motion processing and most perfect picture possible. To accurately reflect the artist’s vision, primary and blended colors must first be reproduced with absolute precision to match the original source. Colour is more important than the number of pixels because on a 1080P projector you can't count the dots from 4m but you can see the correct colours. 

THX just like in the theathers

Tip: You can buy a low cost 4K (entry level) projector that's true 4K but from 5m back you won't be able to tell. Then again for around the same price you could buy a more accurate up market 1080P HD 3D projector with better colours (100% Rec. 709, or about 6% more accurate..) the projected image will stand out as being "Cinema Quality" no matter how far back you're sitting.We can't tell the difference from 5m back so that's not what quality projectors are about.

You buy the best projector you can afford with Rec. 709 or THX certified colours to get that cinema feel. The number of dots (above 1080P) or claimed (often overstated) contrast ratio numbers are not as important as accurate colours. A real cinema can't come close to the number of dots per inch a good 1080P projector pumps out on your projection screen.
4K is a bit like 3D how often will you really use it?

Rec. 709 Standard & TXH Projected Colours the way it was filmed 

Road map: Entry levelW1090W1700TK800 / Mid rangeW3000 / High EndW8000W11000
Once you get to mid range you also start to see full 100% Rec. 709 colours.

Tip: You can buy a low cost 4K (entry level) projector that's true 4K but from 5m back you won't be able to tell. Then again for around the same price you could buy a more accurate up market 1080P HD 3D projector with better colours (100% Rec. 709, or about 6% more accurate..) the projected image will stand out as being "Cinema Quality" no matter how far back you're sitting.

It's not all about Contrast Ratio numbers.  Epson for example quote just 2,000:1 (two thousand to one*) on some awesome projectors. |More|

Projectors

 
How bright? A lot depends on the use (Data, Cinema or both) and how much ambient light is in the room. For a great deal & genuine information on in-stock digital imaging products: Printers, Scanners, Home Theatre or Data Projectors please Contact AIM
 

Rec. 709 BenQ W3000 - Movie Projector for Accurate Colours.

 
Most of the content available today is in HD. From 5m back it's hard to tell HD from 4K, but its easy to tell when the colours are wrong or the blacks are not dark enough. So in some cases a great HD 1080P projector is better than entry level 4K model. Also note than some sell "4K" for twice the price that are really just pixel-shift 1080P resolution. 
 

Printers

A3 & A4 Colour Laser what's best for you depends on print volume, toner/ink & media giving you the important "price per page", also how much toner is included in the box?

For many years we were known as The Scanner Place (scannerplace.com.au) so we know scanners. We've expanded a lot since then because we buy all Digital Products in bulk and offer great prices.

We love clients coming back for another scanner with comments like "after all these years I didn't expect you to be in business", who can blame them with so many computer shops and on-line stores closing. However we've been around since 1984!
