Theater Upgrade...

26 posts in this topic

For someone who still records TV shows on VCRs this question may seem seem stupid so please enlighten me. Four high end LEDs shouldn't cost more than 15k, all the other equipment & accessories shouldn't be more than 25k, and the cabinet no more than 5k.

How is that a 100k system?

really cool, the cross hatch running through the screen would drive me f*cking insane.

at that pricepoint, why not a high end projector and simplify everything?

Do those 4 into 1 combiners allow you to easily go from a single image to 4 independent views?

Essentially...can I be watching a single image across all 4...then switch to 4 different games relatively easy.

From what J has told me, it's not the LED's but the case that they all fit in... and the other equipment in the theater too...

You can see in the picture how thin the separators between the monitors are, this is a really specialized setup... really high end.

J?

4x Made to order in USA 55" LED displays, a 9 input video wall controller, the mount system that allows me to pull a single display out a few inches to work on it, the 4 mounts that attach the displays to the bracket that spaces them vertically, installation, programming it to the whole-house control system & markup... Bam! $100k+...

really cool, the cross hatch running through the screen would drive me f*cking insane.

Really, after watchin it for a few minutes, you dont see the crosshatch unless youre lookin at it...

Simplifying was the point, everything here is a with a projector I would have need to find a Quadplexer & a Matrix switcher that would work well together, and work from my control system. And we were beyond wiring for a projector when he approached me about this. And my clients words were "I want the 'wow factor'. Im only doing this once.."

Like I said above, the image to image gap is 5.3mm or 1/4in. I dare you to find any displays that have even that, let alone smaller. The bezel around your TV is about what? An inch, maybe more? This are not a display you just go buy. It is made when you order it, took about 12 weeks to get it from when I ordered it...

Why has no one made fun of Murph for having AND still using a VCR to record his shows on? :)

How is that ancient piece of machinery still alive? Do they still make blank tapes??
