Sony VPL-VW85 Projector Review
The Sony VPL-VW85 Brightness is better than the older VW70 it replaces.
Interestingly, last year, in measuring the VW70, Mike found that it wasn’t measuring as bright when the dynamic iris was engaged. That wasn’t a very good thing, since in best mode viewing you’ll normally want the dynamic iris on, for better blacks.
This year, however, the VPL-VW85 doesn’t seem to lose any lumens when Auto 1 or Auto 2 – the two dynamic iris choices are engaged.
|Color Temp over IRE Range (Post calibration):|
Average gamma (using default Gamma 6) = 2.19
For those interested in using the iris in manual mode here are some brightness measurements:
Effect of Iris settings on lumen output (Cinema 1):
Iris on Manual (maximum opening) = 572
Iris on Manual (50% open) = 439
Iris on Manual (minimum opening) = 240
Iris on Auto 1 or 2 = 623
