It was only a month ago that I suggested here that high-grade consumer
DLP displays could be used in a grading room given sufficient
attention to setup and calibration. I was taken to task at that time
for suggesting something so inadequate, but now I see that people are
accepting of Plasma, which is surely a less suitable technology than
DLP, LCOS, or even LCD. Most experts would score Plasma dead-last
when it comes to stability and accuracy.
What's up with that? Has the raw sex-appeal of Plasma become more
important than stability and accuracy?
