I am interested in the 2040 but am confused about luminance. Manufacturer rated at 2200 lumens, your tests indicate about 1600 lumens. Comparing it to the Optima HD26, which lists 3000 lumens, your tests show it as less bright than the 2040. I'm in the movie exhibition business and I want the kind of light I have in the cinema to be what I see in a home projector. Unfortunately the cinema standard is 16 Foot.lamberts and I can't find a conversion formula to lumens. Can anybody help me out? Is anything in this price range going to give me a cinema quality image?
