Some may still see these relics of the projection world in old sport bars,
quite possibly displaying a very bad picture and very pink looking whites.
The reason for this is quite simple, that projector has likely been their
for 15+ years chugging away day in day out without once having its tubes
changed. If someone was to change the tubes in these old beasts they spring
back to life with a good tune up and are as good as brand new.
Has anyone ever seen a 15-20 year old digital projector still churning out
pictures in an old bar, highly unlikely. The reason is all Digital
projectors have quite a short shelf life as far as LCD panels go, you may
be able to change the bulb out two or three times but after a few years
those bulbs just aren’t manufactured anymore as newer model are always
appearing, I call this milking the market. The same specifications today’s
digital projectors are boasting, CRT projection had perfected and matured
16 years ago. We’re talking beyond 1080P, 30000:1 on off contrast ratio
with black levels that are still un-surpassed, and a sublime pixel free
vivid image that is on par with today’s flat panel LED panels. I believe I
will always have a CRT projector for the simple reason that I have never
seen a better projected image ever! I’ve seen all of the latest SXRD, DILA
etc unit and not one has lifted up my skirt! I find them 2 dimensional,
clinical, washed out, bad black levels and just plain boring to look at.
But at the same time, they are easy to set up and pretty much plug and play.
Cathode Ray Projectors are not for the novice, in fact I have had around 20
units in the last 15 years of upgrading to the highest end unit and I’m
still learning. They are also very large and heavy at around 100kg’s for a
9 inch unit like my Marquee 9500LC. Light output is also a limiting factor
with these units and require tuning every so often (which I secretly
enjoy), but that’s really the only drawbacks, apart from that it all good.
Anyone who comes to my Home Theatre is gob smacked by what they see,
especially digital projector owners, who always ask where do I get one from.
