LEAPING FROG FILMS SHOWCASES ENVIRONMENTAL
FILMS WITH JVC REFERENCE SERIES PROJECTOR
WAYNE, NJ (August 2, 2011) – Shelly Solomon is a biologist, landscape architect, and water
quality restoration specialist. With her husband, Kent Cornwell, she is also an
environmental filmmaker. They established Leaping Frog Films in 2007, and are
using a new JVC DLA-RS50U
Reference Series 3D projector to showcase their productions to local audiences
in the Seattle area.
Reference Series projectors are built for customers with the most discerning
color and calibration needs. Cornwell – a furniture designer by trade –
developed a compact rolling cabinet that securely houses the projector, plus a
Bose portable sound system and Blu-ray player for transport. As a result, they
can take the projector on the road to present their projects, which are shot,
edited, and authored in HD.

has worked on numerous projects in her career as a biologist that resulted in
positive environmental actions, but very few people actually knew about them.
She and her husband established Leaping Frog Films to increase public awareness
and encourage community involvement. “I wanted to showcase what other people
were doing,” she added.
Frog Films has already produced many video projects for a number of nonprofit
environmental groups, and its “Restoration Gone Wild” series of environmental
stories focuses on wildlife habitat restoration and native species recovery
programs. For her film work, Solomon received Sustainable Seattle’s 2010
“Leadership in Sustainability in the Natural World” award.
Solomon was skeptical about using projection equipment, because she was worried
it would negatively impact the image quality. However, she said the DLA-RS50U, which is paired with a Screen Innovations Black
Diamond HD projection screen, presents a better image than the high-resolution
LCD screens she previously used to present her films.
received the projector in April and has already used it at one conference and an
interview. She plans to showcase future films using the JVC
projector at other events and make available the portable setup to local film
festivals and environmental nonprofit fundraisers. The projector is 3D-capable,
but so far Solomon has only used the projector for HD presentations.
DLA-RS50U features three 1920x1080 D-ILA devices
for a naturally rich, flicker-free picture with true blacks and extraordinary
luminance detail. JVC’s wire-grid optical engine and D-ILA imagers deliver
70,000:1 native contrast ratio – without a dynamic iris to artificially enhance
contrast specifications. The THX® Certified projector delivers 1,300 ANSI
lumens and features JVC’s double-speed 120Hz Clear Motion Drive technology to
reduce motion blur. For 3D presentations, the DLA-RS50U
is compatible with JVC’s PK-AG1 Active Shutter 3D
Glasses and PK-EM1 3D Signal Emitter (sold separately).
