World’s First THX® 3D Certified Home Theater Projectors
NJ, November 9, 2010 – Four new JVC home theater projectors are
the world’s first to gain THX® 3D Display Certification. The
four projectors, announced at CEDIA Expo in September while
undergoing THX testing, will be available later this month.
new THX 3D Certified projectors are the Reference
Series DLA-RS60 and DLA-RS50, to be marketed by JVC’s Professional
Products Company, and the Procision Series DLA-X9 and DLA-X7, to be
available through JVC U.S.A.
- During the THX 3D certification
process, more than 400 laboratory tests are conducted, evaluating
color accuracy, cross-talk, viewing angles and video processing to
ensure the high quality 3D and 2D display performance that home
theater enthusiasts demand. The JVC projectors have simple, one
button solutions for optimized playback of 3D and 2D movies – THX
Cinema Mode to ensure that color reproduction, luminance, blacks,
gamma and video processing matches what the filmmaker intended,
and THX 3D Cinema Mode, which extends this same level of accuracy
for 3D broadcasts and Blu-ray
Discs. THX 3D Cinema
Mode is designed to deliver highly accurate color in 3D, while
minimizing sources of cross-talk
and flicker. For further fine-tuning, all THX Modes on JVC
projectors can be accessed by THX Professional Calibrators.
3D content, each projector includes two HDMI 1.4a ports and supports
side-by-side (broadcast), frame packing (Blu-ray Disc), 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
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.
DLA-RS50 and DLA-X7 offer 70,000:1 native contrast ratio, 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.
four 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. A 4-step lamp aperture is combined
with a 16-step lens aperture to allow more precise management of
lamp output, which further improves black level and native contrast.
a new short arc gap, lamp brightness has been increased from earlier
JVC models to 1,300 ANSI lumens. To reduce motion blur, JVC’s
double-speed 120Hz Clear Motion Drive technology uses a newly
developed LSI for frame interpolation black frame insertion.
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 match
the projector to 99 specific types of projection screens.
four 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.
- The new JVC D-ILA projectors
will be available later this month at the following prices:
PK-AG1 3D glasses ($179) and PK-EM1 3D Signal Emitter ($79) will
also be available in late November.
the four THX Certified models, JVC announced two additional new
3D-enabled projectors, the DLA-RS40 and DLA-X3, also to be available
later this month at $4,495 each. Both offer 50,000:1 native
contrast ratio, 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).
