About this deal
While we are sure that other prototype projectors were being displayed in manufacturers' private suites around Las Vegas but hopefully this article gives you a good overview of several exciting models, that you will see for sale in 2023. Unfortunately, it’s impossible to know the exact conditions and equipment that each manufacturer uses in their testing, so the best I can do is make sure my own methods stay standardized throughout all of my testing, and when I measured the Formovie V10’s brightness I came up with just 1391 ANSI lumens, which is only 55% of its advertised brightness.
Formovie Fengmi V10 A Real Gaming Projector 2022? Is Formovie Fengmi V10 A Real Gaming Projector 2022?
The compact Theater's gray case makes it a good option for viewing in dark rooms. (Image credit: Future) Design and features The new projector runs on Android operating system, but there are also various connectivity options, such as two USB ports, HDMI 2.1, HDMI ARC, 3.5mm audio in and LAN Ethernet. So, you can connect a game console to the new Fengmi projector without any problems. Formovie V10 adopts LED as the light source, which delivers an image with 2,500 ANSI lumens. The brightness is bright enough no matter day or night. To ensure the best viewing effect, you can lower the ambient light when watching videos during the daytime. Compared with lamp-based projectors, LED projectors have longer lamp life and have no trouble with frequent lamp replacement.You know, the new Fengmi V10 projector looks very good, especially for the price of 6799 yuan in China. This is about 1000 US dollars. The Theater provides multiple picture modes and its video adjustments include a color management system that allows it to be calibrated for accurate color. That ability doubtless gave it an edge over some other projectors in the Showdown with less advanced picture settings, but the Formovie projector also produced images with natural-looking colors and precise gamma with just its Movie mode selected. The Leica Cine 1 is based on a Hisense TriChroma Laser TV so it can deliver over 2500 ANSI of brightness and reproduce over 100% of BT2020 color space. The Leica Cine 1 includes Leica proprietary image processing (Leica Image Optimization - LIO™) which optimizes the image quality using special algorithms with the goal of achieving natural color reproduction, detailed color gradations, and enhanced contrast.
Formovie V10 could BREAK the home projector market The Formovie V10 could BREAK the home projector market
Hisense had a full range of new projectors on display at CES, including an 8K and several 4K ultra short throw models plus a new laser-driven portable. The one that caught my eye was the L9H TriChroma Laser TV, no doubt due to its triple-laser light engine with exceptional brightness (3,000 ANSI lumens). Like the AWOL UST model, the L9H is specced to deliver 107% coverage of the Rec.2020 color space and features Dolby Vision high dynamic range support out of the box. With 4K resolution, the projector can produce sharp images with 8.3 million pixels. Regarding colors, the projector has 118% coverage of DCI P3 and 10Bit color depth, producing crisp images with rich details. As for HDR, it can decode HDR 10+. The MEMC can effectively eliminate some image problems such as jitter and trailing and produce a smooth viewing effect. The Formovie Theater beamed impressive-looking images in both bright and dim lighting conditions. (Image credit: Future) Early verdictAs far as the refresh rate claims, I’m highly skeptical for a few reasons. First, the Formovie V10 uses a MediaTek M9669 Chipset, and even though that’s the current top of the line flagship SoC from MediaTek, it clearly lists a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz, and second in my testing even though I was able to set the resolution of the V10 to 1080p 240Hz using my graphics card, after recording the screen at 240 frames per second I couldn’t see any difference between the 1080p 120Hz and 1080p 240Hz signals, but I guess being able to accept and properly display a 240Hz signal is still impressive. Formovie V10 supports at most 140HZ refresh rate and a low input lag of 12ms, which is a good option for playing games. Audio Looking from the top, we can see a panel with a wood grain style, echoing the design of the projector body. There are four virtual buttons on the top panel and they will light up when the projector is turned on. You can wake up the Music Mode by gently touching the corresponding button.
