Question:

Are there projectors that can basically downsample a 4k UHD for 1080p display?

Dunno why this has never occurred to me before. I said upthread something about basically riding Blu-Ray until the wheels fall off because my front projection PQ is pretty damned good as it is (and that's with mid-range at best equipment), challenging a lot of the multiplex presentations in my area. At which point I'd upgrade everything to 4k.

BUT:

If there are players that basically downsample the 4k image to 2k/1080, could I get a little extra life out of that projector? Some 1080p projectors are able to display color ranges much more wide/dynamic than the rec.709 standard blu-ray provides. I'm pretty sure mine is one of those, but I'm also pretty sure that its not up to any HDR spec or whatever that UHD is using, either.

Just kinda curious about the whole thing.

Transfers definitely matter more than just about anything else.

And as noted, even stuff like which lenses are used matter. A good recent example of this would be Rogue One, which talked a lot about the huge image sensors on the Arri Alexa 65 (6k or so) camera they were using but then used the old Ultrapanavision 70mm lenses.

They got the look they were going for (and Disney DI'd at 4K which is a first for Star Wars - as JJ did TFA in 2K), but that combo negated a chunk of the 6k sensor for sure.

So basically a very well made movie in this instance, used equipment that didn't actually get the benefits of the full resolution, but still got the look they were going for at a very high quality level and then had a good mastering and transfer process.

Flip side could be true too, high end equipment to get a 6K image but its shot poorly, mastered and colored terribly, and then given a bad transfer and it'll look like shit.


That said, the combo of 4K and HDR scans, combined with the high bitrate from UHD, is extremely exciting for cinephiles

I have 3 4k movies and the jump up from Blu-ray isn't that big for me as far as resolution. I love HDR though and think it's the star of the show. Just going to wait for 4K movies to go down in price because right now I don't think there worth the extra price. I do want to see planet Earth 2 or the revenant as I hear those looks really good.

That's an excellent question. I'm 99% certain that the Oppo UDP-203 player will do what you're asking. It can down-convert 4K to 1080p and will even convert HDR to SDR. You could even drop the resolution while keeping the BT.2020 color space.

From Oppo's FAQ:

Can the UDP-203 strip HDR metadata from 4K discs and media files while maintaining the BT.2020 color space?

Yes. For customers using projectors or older 4K displays that do not support HDR, yet still want to take advantage of the BT.2020 color space, the UDP-203 is capable of stripping the HDR metadata from the signal while still maintaining the BT.2020 color space output.

So basically, I don't think you're going to find or necessarily want a projector handling that conversion. But the Oppo can and will do that for you.

do you have any technical sources to back these claims? 6k is roughly 19mega pixels, starting to get a little more demanding but still not that much. 70mm is well into medium format film, those lenses should easily out resolve 19 megapixels. Unless of course you meant that they didnt use the full image projected by those 70mm lenses as i imagine the 6k sensor surface area is smaller than surface area of 70mm film.

Okay! So I could actually make the jump to UHD while keeping my current 1080p projector and enjoy the increased color/contrast range.

The Alexa 65's sensor is a little bigger than the active area of 65mm negative.

Agreed. I actually think Big Hero 6 is probably the best one I have, but if you're in North America, you'll have to import since it didn't get a 3d release here.

Dredd is super fun in 3d when it comes to live action movies.

Yup, plus anamorphic lenses meant they cropped too

certainly didn't take full advantage of the camera, but it also didn't really need to either to get the look they were going for

I have to say some of the best 3D I have seen was in The Bubble 1966. They definitely play it up for the camera but it still looked great. Crazy movie as well with one weird ending. We watched it on my friend's projector.

The wing shot near the beginning of the film was that type of 3D you rarely see.

Grabbing some classic 3D is a good idea.

Yeah, I'm looking up that Oppo here on my break pretty soon, in fact.

Getting a player that can play blu-rays, UHD, and will downsample from 4k to a 1080p picture while keeping the colorspace will likely do me just fine until 4k projectors come down in price to a point where I won't feel like a real piece of shit putting one on my card.

Although it assumes the downsampling is done well, too. I do wonder if there are artifacts involved with that conversion.

Have you checked out the Epson 6040UB?

I'm looking into it as it's WAY more affordable than the Sony (true) 4K projectors, but has been getting incredible reviews.

http://www.projectorcentral.com/epso...tor-review.htm

There are YouTube clips out there (I fill send them to you if your interested) that showcase the projector.

Every time I think about getting one of those Epson projectors, I have to stop and remind myself that it's just a stop gap piece of hardware to bridge the gap to the real thing and it's not exactly cheap either. Better to ride out my current one, and then get a proper replacement rather than jump on board too early because it's a shiny new thing.

Also, Oblivion is not worth the upgrade to UHD in my opinion.

Lucy, Sicario and The Revenant are great though.

esp if you have a Frys nearby --- you can catch the LG on sale for like 120-130 bucks every few weeks or so if you get their promo codes by e-mail and watch Slickdeals.

Of course, the LG is a bit of a transport lottery to get one that isn't noisy as well, but it's way cheaper than the Oppo

Oblivion is really the only problem I had with it, but yeah I'd still pick up a dedicated when it's convenient

LG was my first player before getting the Oppo. I liked it a lot. It's sparse for streaming apps (although compared to the Oppo at least it's better than nothing) if you're looking for 4K content aside from discs. It's definitely the best value available today.

Seems like we have a nice trickle of good movies coming to UHD blu ray the next few months:
  • ET
  • Terminator 2
  • Close Encounters
  • Dracula
  • Kick Ass
  • Starship Troopers
  • Blade Runner
  • Westworld Season 1 (is this the first TV show to be released in UHD?)
  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2
  • Wonder Woman

Still clinging to those reddit rumors that came along with Guardians 2, and hoping Force Awakens is coming. I would love to buy that movie for a third time!

The S is pretty disappointing as a UHD player. I regret trading my standalone Samsung player for it. It looks worse, and I've run into glitches. Batman v Superman plays fine up until the big BvS fight, then it glitches out like a mother fucker. It is at the exact same moments every time, and the same disc plays absolutely fine on the Samsung player.

FIY, amazon also has the Terminator 2 release up for preorder for $18.

yeah, I mean, generally these days the TVs themselves (esp LG's WebOS TVs) are the best route for streaming apps (esp if you want Dolby Vision from VUDU or Netflix)

Someone already mentioned the 6040.

The 5040 is the consumer version that you can pick up yourself if you don't want to go thru an installer:

https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B01IO0QWJA/

It drops to ~$2500 on sale and has gotten good reviews, tho it is just HDR10 and not Dolby Vision.

Still, with Optoma breaking the $2k barrier for actual 4k projection, competing projectors will likely drop soon.

XB1S just does HDR10 IIRC.

A Dolby Vision player will outshine it with discs encoded for DV.

At least this one has the name of the movie on the spine. I friggin' hate when a Steelbook doesn't have the title on the spine, because it just looks out of place on the shelf.

At least it's not The Fifth Element's 4k Steelbook that was literally the same one BB already used for the Blu-ray release.

Yeah that's pretty Busch League...I'll probably get the 4K disc from target, AFAIK every 4K disc still comes with the regular blu ray..don't care about 3D personally.

Yes, LG OLEDs are a good solid choice.

Ya, it's an increase in the number of speakers and you either mount them in your ceiling or try the ones that will reflect the sound off your ceiling.

It's looking like the digital copy of GotG2 that comes with the Bluray will not include the 4K Dolby Vision VUDU version:

At this time, per Disney's PR agency, it does NOT appear as though the Digital redemption code included with the 4K Blu-ray combo packs will redeem for this VUDU UHD version -- I checked a Disney-provided code and it only unlocked the HDX resolution (1080p + 5.1 audio) -- but we'll check again when our 4K Blu-ray screener arrives.

Co-sign. Tangled is excellent in 3D, and I'll give a special shout out to Moana which looks magnificent in 3 dimensions. Also, Guardians of the Galaxy and Avatar look great in 3D.

*sigh* Fine Disney, I will bow to your whims and import it even though I already have the US Steelbook.

Sadly this is rather common.
Though in most cases the UHD 4K will eventually open up on your VUDU account but it can take a while

Let's say I have no home theater equipment. What's a mid-tier price range, roughly-speaking, for a 50-60" 4K TV, a 2.1 system, and a 4K Blu-ray player? $1,000-$2,000?
