At first I thought... Oy oy, saveloy, this could get interesting. But these projectors don't seem in any way suited to the home theatre market.

7300 lumens in a bat-cave could be interesting though 😎 😆

I have never heard of this type of projector, why are they not suited to ht.
They're generally designed to be light cannons, for meeting rooms / conference rooms, so won't be designed to produce the most accurate picture, will use cheap lenses, & will run extremely loud (38db) as an example.

Thanks, seems strange that they can have such high lumens and ht projector's don't. I thought hdr on projector's was being held back because they couldn't go that high. There must be a reason there under 2000.

Generally, the brighter they are, the more difficult it is to cool, hence the really noisy fans. This isn't an issue in a 'professional' scenario, but very unsuited to the average home HT room. Also, all the brightness is generally done at the expense of accurate colour reproduction, again not a big issue for commercial applications.
