Smooth, film-like images with JVC's D-ILA imaging technology
D-ILA, which stands for Direct Drive Image Light Amplifier, is a proprietary form of Liquid Crystal on Silicon. D-ILA projectors are characterized by natural pixel-free film-like images with smooth gray scales and rich, highly accurate colors. D-ILA reflective chips have a smooth, scatter-free display surface with an extremely high aperture ratio. D-ILA chips have no spatial dithering that causes noise in the low black levels. The gray levels are smooth and continuous and replicate the signal levels accurately. Pixels are tightly spaced and liquid crystal blending gives a film-like image that no other technology can replicate.

50,000:1 Contrast Ratio
For years, JVC has led the industry with projectors that produce the highest native contrast ratio. The DLA-RS40 is built around a newly designed optical engine that produces brighter images with even higher contrast than previous models. A wire-grid polarizer reduces stray light caused by reflections and helps increase the native contrast ratio to an amazing 50,000:1. "Native contrast ratio" refers to the intrinsic ability of the projector to show the complete range of image contrast simultaneously, in every frame. There is no dynamic iris to artificially inflate contrast specifications. This is important because it allows the blackest levels of the image to be shown with the bright high lights.

The DLA-RS40 has the capability of displaying a wider luminance range: levels from 16-255, or "Super White" signals that preserve details in bright white areas.



3D Capable for the Ultimate Home Viewing Experience
The DLA-RS40 is 3D compatible. JVC uses Frame Sequential Method that provides a full 1920 x 1080 pixels to each eye without crosstalk and flicker. Images are so realistic and so natural-looking that it's like being pulled into the scene. With the frame sequential method, separate left-eye and right-eye images are alternated and require active shutter glasses (PK-AG1, optional) to perceive the image correctly. An IR emitter (PK-EM1, purchased separately) is required to synchronize the glasses. The emitter has a 10m (33 ft) range and IR signals may be aimed directly at the audience or reflected off the screen. 3D signals are provided via Blu-ray (frame packing) or set-top box (side-by-side, top and bottom.)

Easy Gamma adjustment function : Dark / Bright Level
Dark/Bright Level allows easy gamma adjustment without complex gamma operation. It allows users to enhance black or adjust brightness, and to adjust individual Red Green & Blue levels for perfect White Balance.

Screen adjustment mode
As the quality of projected images varies depending on the type of screen and its RGB reflective characteristics, JVC D-ILA projectors have screen adjustment modes that enable users to select the optimum mode to match screen characteristics for more natural and balanced color reproduction. Users may select from 3 modes to match their specific screen characteristics.

Upgraded Clear Motion Drive
Clear Motion Drive's high-precision interpolation algorithm enhances the precision of picture-character detection to generate an accurate intermediate frame even for images with rapid movement. Whether broadcasting signal or movie content, viewers can enjoy smoother and clearer images with reduced motion blurring. JVC has upgraded this function with an improved interpolation algorithm along with black frame insertion.

Compatible HDMI v.1.4a
The DLA-RS40 features two HDMI ver.1.4a interfaces compatible with 3D,1080/24p input and Deep Color. It is compatible with the mandatory 3D formats contained within the HDMI 1.4a specification:

  • 1080p @ 23.98/24Hz - Frame Packing (Blu-ray movies)
  • 720p @ 50 or 59.94/60Hz - Frame Packing (gaming)
  • 1080i@ 50 or 59.94/60Hz - Side-by-Side
  • 720p @ 50 or 59.94/60Hz - Top-Bottom
  • 1080p @ 23.97/24Hz - Top-Bottom

In addition, both interfaces are CEC (consumer electronic control) compatible which allows communication with external devices to enable the control of One-Touch Play, System Standby, etc. Wide HDMI cables can be also inserted simultaneously side by side, and are compatible with HDMI cables equipped with screws for a stable, fixed connection.


HDMI Input Level function
HDMI Input Level allows the user to check input HDMI level by displaying four different samples: Standard(16-235), Enhanced (0-255), Super white(16-255), 0 level on screen. It enable users to check easily when the signal is incorrectly detected.

Motorized Lens Cover
The DLA-RS40 features a motorized lens cover which opens and closes in synchronization with power on/off to protect against dust, so even if the projector is installed up on the ceiling, you are assured of easy, trouble-free operation via the remote control.


Remote Terminals
The DLA-RS40 is supplied with terminals for HDMI, Trigger, and Remote Control. RS-232C allows for control by leading commercial external controllers. A trigger terminal is provided that signals an optional anamorphic Lens to stretch the screen to a 2.35:1 aspect ratio.

Motorized Lens Offsets for Easy Set-up
The motorized ±80% vertical and ±34% horizontal lens shift function enables far more flexibility in setting up the projector as it allows the projected picture to be easily moved horizontally or vertically. In addition, the 2x motorized zoom & focus lens — with throw distances of 3.0 meters to 6.1 meters for the 100-inch display — simplifies tedious zoom and/or focus adjustment.

Inverse telecine (reverse 2-3 pulldown)
To display TV broadcasts or commercially available DVDs created using the 2-3 pulldown process, the inverse telecine function re-converts the video source back to a 24fps signal and displays it at double speed or 48 fps, ensuring cinema-like viewing faithful to the original source.
