Color and Picture Performance
The images here, provide a basic idea of the picture quality. All of these images in this player were taken with the projector in Presentation mode. Presentation mode is a little cooler than Theater (slightly stronger blues, relative to reds), but is otherwise well balanced, and has lots of punch.
The image collection includes photos, and shots from Adobe Bridge showing photos and image viewer. Other images are browser based, showing CNN, and one image of our website.
We even calibrated the G6900WU, which Mike started with Theatre mode. While the Picture Quality is a bit more accurate after calibration, the differences are not great at all.
The Powerlite Pro G6900 WU projector is ready for almost any application that calls for both bright, and reasonably precise color accuracy. While I'm finishing up this review I've got the New England Patriots playing the Denver Broncos in the NFL Division playoffs. Denver's Orange looks killer - in Sports mode, as does the field and the red, white and blue of the Patriot's uniforms.
Consider overall color to be extremely good in most modes, even better calibrated, and even decent color in Dynamic, the brightest mode. Best though is that the other modes are not significantly less bright than Dynamic.
Of course, part of that is the contrast, but the other part is that I'm looking at 5000 or so lumens, 3000 roughly when calibrated. Mostly I'm used to looking at projectors with 400 - 800 lumens calibrated, so right off the bat, this projector is about 3-6 times brighter, so that alone makes blacks pretty medium dark gray.
Shadow Detail, on the other hand, is extremely good! That's to be expected at this price point, and without the really deep blacks near black shadow detail is inherently easier to spot.
