I see, so just number and models, inside all the same.... lol

One with isf mode the other non isf, allows for 20 pt grayscale?

Does it do it like the BenQ ? With isf mode they have anamorphic options, allows for hdmi equaliser , so on?

I’m really puzzled why these needs to be locked? A custom installer’s milking money options from customers ?

I seriously don’t see how enabling anamorphic view or isf mode is gonna cause any hardware equipment failure

I mean it’s fair to pay the custom installers for their calibration services, time spent, Using meters to measure etc, but the question is why LOCK these features ?

Another sister product, the Epson Pro Cinema 6050UB priced at $3,999, is available for sale within the custom integrator channel and is identical in most respects to the HC 5050UB except for a black instead of white casing and other subtle differences. It adds lockable ISF calibration modes for installers and an extra display setting for use with an anamorphic lens. The 6050UB also enjoys a slightly higher rated contrast ratio—1.2 million:1 vs 1 million:1 for the consumer models—the result of Epson cherry-picking the highest performing units off the production line and steering them to the commercial channel. A three-year limited warranty adds an extra year compared with the 5050UB and 5050UBe consumer models. Finally, the 6050UB is packaged with a ceiling mount, cable cover, and an extra replacement lamp, accounting for the bulk of the $1,000 price differential.

That’s about 3.3k converted, very good in HDR mode ? Or just 1080p SDR  material good?

If I ever go into PJ purchase next time, first thing I’ll zoom in to the tone mapping quality for HDR material

List price in Singapore is $4,499

I see we always end up paying higher here in Singapore , probably due to economies of scale , even the OLED pricing for B8 65” cost usd2.3k in Walmart USA , that translates to $3.2k at today’s market rate, but here it’s a whopping $5k

That’s how it is ....

It’s mentioned “locakable” isf mode, not “locked” isf mode. So really cannot apprehend why they need to lock a viewing mode

Is the isf mode superior in some ways to the available cinema modes ? Has better blacks and iris control when enabled ? Any idea ?

I didn’t notice anything different, except for few more available settings like hdmi equaliser and anamorphic view options

Of course the calibrated version on isf is much better compared to the default cinema out of the box, and the difference is huge and noticeable when everything calibrated to reference and matches the viewing environment

It seems like  it’s across the board then, does the JVC PJ lock isf mode too ?

The 9400 HDR performance is good. It has the lumen horsepower. I’m using the previous model, Tw8300 and HDR is already very good. Epson colour brightness is also great which is one of its selling feature.

Nice, which model u using now kaydee?
