DENVER, CO (September 14, 2006) - JVC Professional Products Company today announced that its popular DLA-HD10K and the DLA-HD2K projectors are now available with Silicon Optix HQV video processor, the HR1080Pro.

The Realta HQV video engine encompasses true 10-bit video processing, full four-field, pixel-based, motion-adaptive video deinterlacing for both SD and HD signals, temporal-recursive and codec noise reduction, automatic multicadence detection, and pixel-based detail enhancement. It also uses the same video processing power—one trillion operations per second—as the famous $60,000 Teranex Xantus box.

“We’ve been big fans of HQV processing from the beginning. It only made sense for us to pair our state-of-the-art 1080p projectors with the best video processing in the industry. I think home theater enthusiasts will be amazed when they see the image quality that results from combining JVC 1080p DILA display technology and Silicon Optix trillion-operations-per-second HQV processing engine,” said Carl Mandelbaum, national marketing manager, display products, JVC Professional Products Company.

The availability of JVC’s projectors with Silicon Optix processors is an expansion of JVC’s family of high-definition, ultra high-resolution home theater projection systems featuring its proprietary 3-chip Direct Drive Image Light Amplifier (D-ILA™) technology, an advanced form of Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCOS) that is capable of greater pixel density than competing technologies such as DLP or LCD.

The DLA-HD10K and DLA-HD2K with Silicon Optix HQV video processor is available now through the CEDIA channel and authorized JVC dealers. For more information, pricing and high-resolution photos, please visit JVC’s Web site at
