    Hi,

    Does anyone know anything about this ProjectDesign model zero five projector? I seen it in Home Cinema Choice and on the web and it looks quite good.

    be aware that this is a long throw pj. needs 4.86 m to fill a 100" screen
    same chassis as the projection design Action one.

    here is also a small review posted in the norwegian avforum:

    Today i saw at my local dealer the new Matterhorn Zero-Five model from projectiondesign, it was shown in a darkened room at a 92inch 1.0 gain screen. The movies they where showin was Chicken Run, Fast & Furious, James Bond
    Later on we also connected the HD2 model-One from Projectiondesign


    Input:
    as input we only used the S-video, unfortunaly i can't tell the difference between the S-video input and the Progressive / DVI input, they did not have any DVD-player with this kind off connection, so i think cause the two projectiondesign models has the same kind of chasis and connections it must be the same with the model-One, so maybe someone can confirm this that the DVI works

    Design:
    I heard only 1 month ago from this projector, and all i can say , that the Projectiondesign models has one off the best designs.

    Brightness:
    The Brightness from the Zero-five model is 500-900 ansilumens, but boy this projector is bright enough for 120 inch screens or more, remember this projector was not calibrated, but i think if calibrated the picture would still bright enough

    Blacklevel:
    The First thing i noticed was a very good blacklevel, the James Bond movie was showing a part in the Ice, and than i could say that black was really Black, and white was really White

    Contrast:
    The Dark scenes has enough detail for not missing anything from the movie, for example Chicken Run , in the Dark scenes had enough punch and 3D , Perfect !!

    Colors:
    Colors where very Natural , i think that maybe here we could tweak the Zero-Five a bit more, although the colors were ok, i think the colors were a little blur.

    Comparison Zero-Five-> Model-One
    The last 30 min. we connected together the Zero-Five and the Model-One, the first thing we noticed was that the Zero-Five was brighter than the Model-one, the Black level was the same , contrast was i think due different settings a small bit better on the Model-One, when showing a movie it was hardly to tell wich one was better, the zero-five had better whites but the Model-one was a littel sharper due his higher resolution.


    Conclusion
    This is a very good projector

    more in the infocus5700 range. don't now how much you guys have to pay for it ( they sell all their models cheaper to domestic customers ;-)). if you send a mail to
    sales@projectiondesign.com , they can tell you where to get it in the UK

    RGB communications have the only reseller agreement with PD. I buy direct but can't resell to public..sorry. They do a variety of projectors based on the one chassis, and have two lens options..for both the SXGA and XGA model.

    One is around 1.75-2.25:1 and the other is a 1:1. SXGA is 104% lens shift and the XGA is 109% offset.

    If you want to speak to somebody then either RGB or Anders Lokke from PD will gladly help you out.

    I have had this projector in my dem room recently.
    It's a good little unit but more expensive than other Matterhorn based DLPs like the Sim2 Domino 20.
