3D-ENABLED D-ILA HOME THEATER PROJECTORS
WITH UP TO
100,000:1 NATIVE CONTRAST RATIO
Six New Models
Announced at CEDIA 2010
September 23, 2010 – JVC U.S.A. today unveiled six new 3D-enabled D-ILA
projectors here at CEDIA EXPO 2010. All six host native contrast ratios
that are unmatched in the industry, with the top models delivering a
100,000:1 native contrast ratio.
new projectors are the Reference Series DLA-RS60, DLA-RS50 and
DLA-RS40, to be marketed by JVC’s Professional Products Group, and the
Procision Series DLA-X9, DLA-X7 and DLA-X3, to be available through
JVC’s Consumer Electronics Group.
- “3D has recently become a major box
office draw. Now, with 3D broadcast channels emerging, and a growing
number of 3D Blu-ray titles available, consumers want the immersive 3D
experience in their homes,” said Gary Klasmeier, product engineering
manager, D-ILA Systems, JVC Professional Products. “Our new line of
D-ILA projectors sets a new standard for home cinema. It’s an immersive
home 3D viewing experience.”
3D content, each projector includes two HDMI 1.4a ports and supports
side-by-side (broadcast), frame series (Blu-ray), and above-below 3D
transmissions. An external 3D Signal Emitter (PK-EM1) syncs the
projected image with JVC’s Active Shutter 3D Glasses (PK-AG1). The
external 3D signal emitter ensures solid signal transmission to the 3D
glasses for a superior 3D experience, no matter what type of screen is
used or how the home theater has been configured.
new flagship projectors, the DLA-RS60 and DLA-X9, are built using
hand-selected, hand-tested components and provide a 100,000:1 native
contrast ratio. For 3D display, both models come with two pairs of 3D
glasses along with a PK-EM1 3D Signal Emitter. Both projectors also
have a three-year warranty.
- “No other three-chip projectors in the
home theater market can match the amazing 100,000:1 native contrast
ratio of the DLA-RS60 or DLA-X9,” said Klasmeier. “JVC’s contrast ratio
numbers are not artificially inflated by electronic circuitry or a
dynamic iris, so every frame consistently and faithfully reproduces
peak whites and deep blacks.”
DLA-RS50 and DLA-X7 offer 70,000:1 native contrast ratio, while the
DLA-RS40 and DLA-X3 offer 50,000:1 native contrast ratio. All four
projectors come with a two-year warranty and are compatible with JVC’s
PK-AG1 Active Shutter 3D Glasses and PK-EM1 3D Signal Emitter (sold
separately) for 3D presentations.
six new projectors feature three 0.7” 1920 x 1080 D-ILA devices and are
designed around JVC’s third generation D-ILA High Dynamic Range optical
engine that is optimized to provide exceptional native contrast ratios
without a dynamic iris to artificially enhance contrast specifications.
A directed light integration system and wire grid polarizer ensures
optimum light uniformity and minimal crosstalk in the light path. In
the top four models (DLA-RS60, DLA-RS50, DLA-X9, DLA-X7) a 16-step lamp
aperture system matches the 16-step lens aperture to optimize the
f-number (relative aperture) of the optics system in all steps. The
DLA-RS40 and DLA-X3 feature a 16-step lens aperture.
four top models – DLA-X7/DLA-RS50 and DLA-X9/DLA-RS60 – have been
designed to achieve THX® certification and are in the process of being
tested by THX.
same four models also include a new seven-axis color management system
(R, G, B, C, M, Y and orange) that allows precise color tuning,
especially in skin tones, and a choice of color profiles, including
Adobe RGB, DCI and sRGB/HDTV. They have also been designed for ISF
certification and will include an ISF C3 mode for professional
calibration. Ninety-nine screen correction modes help to maximize
six models share a completely new design, with a center-mounted lens
and rear power, signal and control connectors for improved cable
management and more versatile positioning and mounting options.
Rear-to-front airflow also allows more placement flexibility while
reducing thermal concerns.
new JVC D-ILA projectors will be available in late November at the
PK-AG1 3D glasses ($179) and PK-EM1 3D Signal Emitter ($79) will also
be available in late November.
