On Wednesday, JVC announced a new line of projectors hitting home theaters this fall. The home theater projector line showcases three new models of the world’s first projector to offer 48 Gbps 8K inputs.
The new laser projectors feature new LSIs and JVC’s 8K/e-shift technology, enabling the input and display of an 8K high definition display. JVC’s BLU-Escent laser light source reproduces images with precision and range on the large screen.
The home theater projectors will be accessible in both the Procision Series (DLA-NZ9, DLA-NZ8, and DLA-NZ7) and Reference Series (DLA-RS4100, DLA-RS3100, and the DLA-RS2100). The top of the line projector (DLA-NZ9/RS4100) comes with a 100mm all-glass lens, 8K e-shiftX, and ultra-high contrast optics. The DLA-NZ8/RS3100 shares similar qualities to the NZ9/RS4100, with the only difference being a 65mm all-glass lens. The DLA-NZ7/RS2100 offers a laser light source, 8K input with 8K/e-shift at reasonable pricing.
JVC highlights 5 key features of their new home theater projectors that customers should consider.
The world’s first* home theater projector with 48Gbps 8K60p/4K120p inputs. Newly developed 8K/e-shiftX delivers breathtaking 8K high resolution
The dual 48Gbps HDMI inputs with HDCP 2.3 provide a future-proof connection, making it ideal for newer gaming consoles. The updated 8K/e-shiftX uses a 240Hz driver to shift in four diagonal directions, resulting in 8K content with pixel-perfect 8K resolution.
BLU-Escent laser light source technology achieves both high brightness of 3000lm and long life of approximately 20,000 hours
The increased brightness makes it compatible with much larger screens and significantly increases the peak brightness during HDR playback. Customers will get to experience home theater like never before.
HDR (High Dynamic Range) Content
JVC added support for HDR10+ format that uses dynamic metadata. HDR10 format used in UHD Blu-ray and streaming, as well as HLG format used in broadcast, are also available.
Ultra-High Contrast Optics further improves the quality of projected images (DLA-NZ9/RS4100, DLA-NZ8/RS3100)
Ultra-High Contrast Optics significantly improves the brightness by adopting a more efficient polarization method. A new optical device was adopted by JVC, eliminating unwanted light for an improved quality of projected images.
Improved accuracy of proprietary Clear Motion Drive image blur reduction technology
JVC’s original image blur technology improved the accuracy of motion compensation at object boundaries by reviewing the interpolation algorithm. With the Clear Motion Drive and Motion Enhance, the new JVC laser projectors reproduce 4K images smoother than before.
The new line of projectors is expected to be released around October. To read more about JVC’s new projectors, you can check out their website.
