Epson Home Cinema 8700UB Projector – Image Quality-4

black levels comparision




Below, the same scene a couple seconds a part. As the shuttle enters the image, it’s bright, it causes the dynamic iris to open a bit more, so the background space gets a little lighter in the second image.

Look at the difference in the pause bars – more overexposed in the lower image. Because of the increased bright areas, the Epson’s more open iris makes all the brightest objects brighter, but the blacks increase equally. (That’s the drawback to a dynamic iris, it can’t lower blacks while maintaining maximum white on other parts of a frame).
