I'm using the Barco 23P 4K with a 3000W USHIO bulb.

I was approached a few weeks ago to test a NEC Laser projector that in
theory is cold (doesn't need ventilation) and is much smaller than the
previous ones. Link here
<http://www.necdisplay.com/p/digital-cinema-projectors/nc1040l-a>. But
haven't had the chance to test colorimetry on it yet. Every time I've
talked about laser with other colorists, they are always very hesitant to
use in Post environments because of current stability/reliability. But I
will let the list know when I test that NEC! I'm planning to use
Colorimetry Research spectrometer and colorimeter on it.

Best,
