Projector for Resolve Suite

PostWed Aug 07, 2019 10:40 pm

Hi Everyone!

I'm looking for advice on purchasing a projector to use in a grading suite.

The screen will be around 5m wide.

I've noticed a visible "split" in the RGB when you rotate your head quickly on cheaper projector models, what is this and how can I avoid purchasing a projector that creates this "split channel shutter"?

Thanks!

A used 2K Barco off of eBay is probably your lowest cost to entry if you are looking for a professional solution. In the consumer market, I would think that LG's laser projector might be a quality option once calibrated. But again, if you are actually grading for professional use, it should be at least the 2K Barco.

Others should chime in with opinions better than mine.

The effect you're describing sounds like the rainbow effect. It only affects single chip DLP projectors.

You rater will be better off with grading monitor.
Projector wich calibrates and is good (as for grading ) is going be rather expensive.

There is a review for mentioned LG laser one and it's not very good wen you need accuracy (if I remember well). Laser projection is still new and there won't be anything cheap and accurate.
Also- as far as I understand if you are not delivering to cinema then grading on projector is not necessarily desired. Projection gives rather different experience.
