Hi Guys,

I just went from two 42" HDTV's to an Optima EH200ST Projector. Although the projector looks nice during daytime flights, night flights look terrible. So I decided to abandon the projector idea, I'll use the projector for football. Very Happy

Looking for info from individuals that are using a 4K UHDTV with Prepar3D 2.5. I'd like to get an 85" 4K UHDTV, (the one shown below) that would be used with three Titan X's and a 4790K setup.

Thanks

If you are going to spend that much on a tv you would be better with a big curved tv Wink

What was particularly wrong with night time? The blacks not good?

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for all the replies, night flying is unacceptable with the Optima projector. Everything is washed out, dull looking and gives the impression that it's out of focus when it's not. Looks as though the screen is smeared and it's not the lens it's clean.

As far as a curved screen, a friend has one and it looks kind of fisheye so I'll be getting a flat screen.


Just about ready to pull the trigger on the above UHDTV. Laser projector, anyone have any experience with these projectors?.

I think ultimately TVs have the better color reproduction, but I could never stand the bezels and they would destroy the illusion.

Perhaps Nat could lend his expertise - I've been to his curve screen setups and they are excellent. He also created a pseudo 180 degree screen wrap with one projector.

The Canon's are FANTASTIC projectors, worth every cent but not in everyones budget.
Don't get fooled by published Contrast ratios by manufacturers, Canon uses the correct ANSI methods to determine specifications.
The Optoma's are excellent value and have used them in many installations, never had a complaint.

Hi Everyone,

Thanks

Mike
I'm running a 70" Vizio 4K TV a 4790k w/ a Zotec 980 video card. It is amazing. I'm pretty sure this CPU & chip set doesn't have enough pci channels to push the bandwidth required for 3 X 4K resolution. But Intel says that the new Skylake CPU & chipset can. Would be pretty sweet to be able to run 3 X 80" 4k's with one Computer. I'm headed that direction next year. I wish I had the room for 210 deg of projectors I'm very happy with 70" of 4K for the present.

Not sure If Mike is running one forward view (as opposed to multiple views?),
but running a true 210FOV at 1080p on one computer is a struggle, let alone @ 3x4K resolution.
If you are happy with a single forward view(and the distorted side views inherent with it) Im pretty sure you could run 3 x 4K off one computer.

Yep, hats off to him for trying, but the degradation in image quality is not worth it. It's only "OK" till about 140FOV.
The only real solution is still multiple un-docked views.

Ah, okay. I thought he was referring to something different than that.

Thanks.
