Viewsonic Pro9000 Projector Picture Quality 5

Viewsonic Pro9000 Projector: Performance, HDTV and Sports

Most sports photos for this section were taken with back lighting on, and the rear window shutters partially open. Above, the shuttered window to the right has part of the glass blacked out, and the shutters are partially closed. (The rooms down facing rear lights are on.)  You can see that plenty of light is still getting through to hit (primarily) the right side of the screen (letterbox area is nicely "lit").  There is enough ambient light to definitely wash out the sports images a visible amount, but still leave a really watchable image.

The non-football, and non-Olympics HDTV images were taken with the rear lights off, and the shutters closed down almost all the way, leaking far less light.

In my theater, sports viewing with controlled ambient light looked really good. The Sports mode has lots of pop to it, and less yellow/green than most other modes, especially when combined with the right gamma mode, and decent lighting control.

This particular football image was taken with the lights off shutters almost closed (same as the non-sports images).  Note how much better it looks than some of the other football photos, thanks to less ambient light present.

As I have said, there are times that the Pro9000 can look really good on skin tones.   Not bad!

Viewsonic Pro9000 Projector: Bottom Line on HDTV and Sports

This will be added to after we've looked at a final production Pro 9000 projector.  Let's just say that right now Sports mode combined with a complementary gamma, will provide very good results, within the limit of being less than 800 lumens. In my theater, friends were perfectly happy while we sat around watching football all Sunday, while rooting for our fav teams - and more importantly? - our fantasy football players!
