Shadow Detail Performance 3

Again, from Space Cowboys, this is a cropped image. the right side, is very bright (so dynamic irises will not be effective). The X9 (top left) provides very good detail in the dark areas of the satellite. Next to it on the first row, is the Epson MovieMate 72 – an all-in-one projector system with built in sound and DVD player. On the next row: the Mitsubishi HC1600 and the Optoma HD71.

When comparing, the InFocus X9 to the competition, look at the detail in the roof (tiles), and in the assorted trees and plants. The images below are from the same projector and slightly overexposed. Click on the images and the larger versions showing the different projectors will appear. Those are far more overexposed, to allow a closer inspection of shadow details.
