Smooth, film-like images with JVC's original 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 Native Contrast Ratio
JVC leads the industry with projectors that produce the highest native contrast ratio which measures the 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. The DLA-RS46 produces brighter images with vivid colors, subtle shadows and deep, true blacks.

The DLA-RS46 has the capability of displaying a wider luminance range: levels from 16-255, or "Super White" signals that preserve details in bright white areas.



New 230 Watt NSH Illumination System
The DLA-RS46 utilizes a new Super High Pressure (NSH) lamp that provides a much flatter brightness curve through its rated life span. Lamp life has been increased to 4,000 hours when the projector is in the Normal mode. A 16-step lens aperture is provided to obtain the ideal brightness and contrast levels for specific viewing environments.

3D Performance Improved for 2013
There's nothing like 3D to pull you into the scene. The DLA-RS46 uses the frame sequential method which provides separate left-eye and right-eye images through synchronized active shutter glasses. 3D performance has been significantly improved with a new cross-talk canceler.

The DLA-RS46 is compatible with a wide range of 3D signals provided via Blu-ray or set-top box through its HDMI 1.4a inputs. Signals formats may include full L/R HD (frame packing) including 1080/24p and 720/60p side-by-side.The DLA-RS46 is equipped with a parallax adjustment that allows the user to control the horizontal offset between the two channels for the most pleasing effect. 3D scaling is provided for use with anamorphic lenses.

For 2013, JVC is offering 3D glasses which use RF (radio frequency) synchronization. Using Radio Frequencies (RF) provides for a wider coverage area with no synchronization issues when turning away from the emitter. Our new glasses also have a 2D mode for audience members who would rather not view 3D. Emitter installation is much simpler with the emitter module tucked out of sight on the rear of the projector. Emitter and glasses are optional.


2D-3D Converter Built-in
The DLA-RS46 performs real-time conversion of 2D high definition video sources into high quality, impactful 3D thanks to industry-first algorithms developed by JVC. Our 2-D/3-D technology is by far the most advanced and efficient real time conversion technology that exists. It's featured in our leading professional 3D image processor, the IF-2D3D1, used in the conversion of films and TV shows. User adjustments are provided to control depth and sub-titles.

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. Optimum settings can be found here on JVC's website.

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-RS46 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 or Side-by-Side
  • 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.

Remote Terminals
The DLA-RS46 is supplied with terminals for HDMI, Trigger, Remote Control and LAN. A built-in web server provides remote control functions via any personal computer (or hand held device) on the local area network. 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.

Lens Memory Function
The DLA-RS46 has 5 memories for lens offset, focus and zoom. This allows you to set a constant height and use the same projection screen for 1.78, 1.85 and 2.35 aspect ratios without an anamorphic lens. Your pre-assigned aspect settings are called up by pressing the "lens memory" button on the remote control. For example, assuming that you have a 2.35 screen and want to watch a 16:9 movie, you can resize it with the push of a button. If your movie is a 2.35 film, you can take full advantage of your Cinemascope screen. [More about lens memory]


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.
