Check out the latest video showing the test using a 700 lumen projector. You can clearly see it is not a joke, or a really small screen. The screen in my pics is 80 inches and the projector in a lot of them is set to project wider than the screen (as if it were projecting a 100 inch screen). Other than posting videos that show the whole room (like I did) and showing how it works with lower powered projectors, not much I could do to convince. I guess I just don't care enough to go to the trouble of creating an elaborate joke. This isn't about an invention. That already happened. We are just trying to recreate it for less money at home. I only used the 7000 lumen projector for the Rosso black fabric after everything else failed.Things have moved very fast in this thread the last couple days!
I have a comment regarding the photos and vids. Using a 7000 lumen pj to show a black screen image that is very small - screen wise - would be very simple to do. I'd guess your screen size in a lot of your images is roughly 60" or less diagonal where your showing the materials. Meaning your fL at your samples is somewhere in the neighborhood of what? A little less 700fL? Even if the ANSI Lumen rating for this pj is off by a factor of 2, you'd still be hitting the samples with a little less than 350fL. No offense, but I could make most anything look good with those numbers. You could use a solid black screen and it would look good.
Several years ago at avs, a member named budXXXX (replace the X'x with numbers) announced his black screen wonder and showed pictures of the screen in action. Most folks thought that it was the greatest discovery ever! However it was really just a practical joke played by bud. He made a very small black screen and took macro shots of it very close to his pj. Small screens being hit with a ton of lumens really shows nothing.
I'll read through more of this today, but so far, I haven't seen anything that I would consider a breakthrough yet. :huh:
