The D-ILA(R) (Digital Direct Drive Image
Light Amplifier) technology that JVC has developed is based on an
innovation in microchip design that permits the viewer to enjoy
the full range of benefits from any high quality source whether
from a video deck or a computer device. For true HDTV performance,
the D-ILA(R) technology packs up to 2048 x 1536 pixels -a total
of 3.2 million pixels- on a single 1.3" chip.
The D-ILA(R)'s innovative CMOS design is the key to reproducing
all the details in a high-definition picture. By placing the matrix
addressing switches and electronics right behind (not between) the
light-modulating liquid crystal layer, JVC has created a D-ILA(R)
chip with a "3-dimensional" layout. The result is a 93%
fill factor and virtual elimination of the annoying "grid"
or "screen door effect" so evident in other fixed matrix
What is the end result? Images as smooth and natural
as film with impeccable reproduction of all the details and information
contained in the original source. What supports this high picture
quality is high brightness, high resolution, high contrast and analog
gradation. High brightness and high resolution are achieved using
a reflective device with a high aperture ratio and high-density
pixels, providing real resolution with invisible pixels. High contrast
is achieved using vertical alignment liquid crystals of normally
black operation and a high-precision optical system. Analog gradation
makes it possible to reproduce dark areas with high S/N (signal-to-noise
ratio) because the D-ILA(R) device has an S-shape response.
In combination with the high-speed response of the vertical alignment
liquid crystal, JVC's D-ILA(R) technology makes it possible
to reproduce smooth, noiseless motion pictures with clear, sharp
high definition and film-like picture quality.
