JVC UNVEILS ITS LATEST D-ILA PROJECTOR FOR THE HOME THEATER MARKET AT CEDIA
WAYNE, NJ (SEPTEMBER 27, 2002) -- JVC PROFESSIONAL PRODUCTS COMPANY today announced the release of their latest DILA (Direct Drive Image Light Amplifier) projector, the DLA-SX21, ideal for use in upscale home theaters.

With the highest 1400 x 1050 native resolution (1400 x 788 in 16:9 mode), three 0.7" D-ILA devices and high contrast of 800:1, the DLA-SX21 sets new standards of high performance video/cinema projection in its price category.

The DLA-SX21 features a new optical engine based on D-ILA technology. New polarized beam splitters perform color separation of the light source by modifying polarization depending on the color. Red, green and blue (RGB) components are modulated by polarization with three D-ILA devices, each 1.5 million pixels. The RGB components are mixed together within the same optical device, minimizing dissipation in the light path, improving contrast ratio and eliminating dust exposure. The D-ILA optical engine produces flicker-free, smooth, film-like images with more realistic color, 1500 ANSI lumens and a virtually invisible pixel grid.

The DLA-SX21 accepts NTSC, PAL and all HDTV formats plus 1080 24p, 25p, 30p and 24pSF, ensuring compatibility with a wide variety of sources and applications. Third generation scaler along with JVC DIST (Digital Image Scaling Technology) provides sophisticated de-interlacing and scaling algorithms for DVD and HDTV formats.

The DLA-SX21 delivers over the top performance with new and enhanced technological features," said Bob Mueller, executive vice president of JVC, "Elements such as the D-ILA and PBS technologies provide optimum image projection ideal for the home theater."

The DLA-SX21's user-friendly design allows easy installation and portability. Weighing only 5.5 kg (12 lbs.), the high-resolution projector can be carried anywhere.
