I got the Vertex 2. Seemed really easy and used by someone in AVS with the 760ES.

I used his settings.


Vertex 2 Guide

Assumes you're putting the Vertex 2 between the receiver and the projector.

Go to the web page for your Vertex 2, click on Config tab. Go down to FW Update. Upload new 0.49 firmware. Wait a minute.

Clear browser cache, then reload page.

EDID Tab

Check Automix
Video flags TX0 (main output that is primarily for 4k)
Audio flags stereo (projector doesn't do sound anyway)
HDR Flags - check HLG as the projector does support that
DV Flags - check box

Scaler Tab

Check Autoscaling radio button
Tick box to not upscale for TX0

HDR/AVI Tab

Check "Use custom HDR... input is LLDV"

EOTF, set as SMPTE ST 2084, BT2020-2, D65
Max luminate 1000
Min Luminance 0.005
Max CLL 1000 (matches HDR Ref on Sony)
MaxFALL leave at 400

Click Create IF
Click Send HDR

DV Tab

Construct Custom DV Data Block

DV Interface Low Latency 12 bit YCbCR 422 (haven't tried other options yet)
Primaries DCI P3
YUV 422 12 bit supported
Global Dimming not supported
Backlight not supported
Backlight min lum n/a

Set primaries. Unless you have your own values from calibrations, I suggest you stick to the standard RGB primaries.

Max luminance, set at 1000 nits to match the Ref HDR curve. Min luminance, set at 0.005, which seems to work well with projectors.

Click create, then send DV.

OSD Tab

Change fade time as it gets flipping annoying...

Config Tab

Check HDCP 1.4 to make it quicker syncs and slightly less bandwidth, therefore slightly better reliability on long runs

Enjoy!

If I find anything that needs tweaking, I'll update the post.

I'll be borrowing the Vertex2 to try your settings as suggested to see how it works with my Sony VPL260ES if the results are good I will upgrade from the Vertex1 to Vertex2...

Will this thing resolve the drop out image for the 4k content when using normal hdmi cable? (Meaning using those non fiber hdmi cable. )

I bought my optical HDMI cables (15M) for about $400 in 2017.   :)

Holy! But yeah... This is the way to go. Despite the devices, still at mercy of the length. Best to go with fiber or active cable.

Got it up and running, setting them up was pretty easy thanks to the videos on YouTube, an hour or so thanks to doggies recommended settings. Made sense. Still comparing a few different stuff. It is promising indeed , HDR is looking good on the BenQ ..... will share more information along the way... not bad, worth exploring

Have you tried putting between the source and receiver instead, then to prj?

I didn’t. This gave me a way to test direct vs LLDV to my projector. So I can do quick AB. I use Vertex 2 on second HDMI out from AVR

Try Black Panther Dolby Vision. A lot better. Especially in the opening dark scenes.

I still prefer Panasonic 820’s processing for those scenes. But the Oppo and AppleTV fared a lot better

Yea will definitely try that, I try to use a setting that preserves the best shadow details on the BenQ , at the lower ends 10% stimulus, blacks crush. Using the Oppo to compensate for best shadow details.

I tried playing a 4000nit HDR content, whites are still crushed, looked washed out on the horse scene from spears and munsil 4k disc. Still experimenting to limit the max nits from the source content so it doesn’t clip brightness

But the device is pretty versatile, so many thing I can do with such a small device

bro saw this :)

http://www.xtremeplace.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=295790.0

Oh! Pricing is out ! That’s fast.

So far even on REC709 SDR, I’m getting 12bit colour depth, they look beautiful on an already beautiful rec709 4k SDR, there is nice improvement in image quality on the SDR 4k rec709, they look really natural and I less grain. This suggest there is some form of noise cleaning in the picture? I don’t know. But definitely can see the difference on the colours, checking the info shows 12bit colour depth.

Very nice, not bad for the device. Looks pretty promising so far

I’ll share some pictures with HDR soon, still tweaking about. let’s hope it doesn’t disappoint
