Meridian: MF10 1080p HD Projector

December 4, 2008
How do you rate the MF10?
The MF10 provides the superb quality of an A to A-plus projector. In relation to other projectors on the market, after definite and direct comparisons, we have noticed there are a multitude of projectors that occupy the B to A-minus range of performance.

For what applications is
quality of an A to
it best suited?

The Meridian MF10 is best suited for smallto medium-sized home theaters that require the quietest and highest quality video reproduction.

Describe its feature set.
The MF10 excels because of such characteristics as: true, calibrated contrast ratio using a 100-step gray scale computerized calibration, white field and color uniformity, balance of great black and, at the same time, shadow detail. Other attributes of MF10 that [pushes it] beyond its peers include: the software and exclusive calibration developed for Meridian by the renowned video authority, William Phelps, super lens quality, quality control on bulb performance consistency, and availability of ideally matching video scalers/processor.

What features would you like to see changed?
We hope to see more products in the line-up of the Meridian video projectors and/or displays. We also hope to have more the calibrations provided by William Phelps applied to more and more of the future products.

“At the levels we exist, custom installation and, more importantly, ‘integration’ is one of the most challenging industries. And it is that challenge that provides us the most excitement!”
