Yesterday JVC announced a revamped line of their home theater projectors. As what happens every year with JVC at CEDIA, there is a slew of improvements that makes you want to dip into your savings account to get the latest model. The key areas of performance enhancements come from a new imaging device, upgraded version of the company’s e-shift technology, 4K source compatibility and a user-selectable Intelligent Lens Aperture. JVC has always been known for their great contrast ration and they are improving on that with a user-selectable Intelligent Lens Aperture that can dial in even deeper blacks. In projectors equipped with 4K e-shift3, the latest iteration of the company’s e-shift technology, feature a 4K signal input (60P) so that now both 4K and 2K sources can be displayed as 3840 x 2160 images. The new JVC projectors use three sixth generation JVC D-ILA imaging devices. This new device features a pixel gap that’s 40 percent narrower than the previous chip for a smoother picture, a 10 percent improvement in light efficiency for a light output of 1,300 lumens, and improved native contrast, which is also enhanced by a new, third generation wire grid optical engine. As a result, native contrast ratios for the new projectors are: DLA-X900R/RS67/RS6710 150,000:1 DLA-X700R/RS57 120,000:1 DLA-X500R/RS49/RS4910 60,000:1 To further boost contrast, JVC has developed a user-selectable Intelligent Lens Aperture. When engaged, JVC’s Intelligent Lens Aperture produces deeper black levels while maintaining white levels superior to what’s delivered by competing projectors using a dynamic iris – performance attributable to JVC projectors’ inherent high native contrast capabilities. As a result, the new JVC projectors achieve the industry’s highest dynamic contrast ratios: DLA-X900R/RS67/RS6710 1,500,000:1 DLA-X700R/RS57 1,200,000:1 DLA-X500R/RS49/RS4910 600,000:1 The new JVC D-ILA home theater projectors will be available November at the following prices: DLA-RS6710 $12,499 DLA-X900R/DLA-RS67 $11,999 DLA-X700R/DLA-RS57 $7,999 DLA-RS4910 $5,199 DLA-X500R/DLA-RS49 $4,999 To get more details on all the important features watch the video.
