JVC updates its D-ILA range by introducing six new home theater projectors, all offering high native contrast ratio. The new models include the DLA-RS35, DLA-RS25 and DLA-RS15 to be marketed by JVC’s professional products group, and the DLA-HD990, DLA-HD950 and DLA-HD550, available through JVC’s consumer electronics group.
All six new D-ILA projectors utilizes JVC’s 0.7-inch full HD D-ILA devices and the company’s optical engine. They feature the double-speed 120Hz Clear Motion Drive technology for reducing motion blurring and the new screen adjustment mode to optimize the projector for different screen types.
The DLA-RS35 and DLA-HD990 both provide a native contrast ratio of 70,000:1, which is the highest yet of any D-ILA projector. The DLA-RS25 and DLA-HD950 have 50,000:1, DLA-HD550 has 30,000:1 and DLA-RS15 offers 32,000:1. The top four models – DLA-RS35, DLA-HD990, DLA-RS25 and DLA-HD950 – are all THX Certified. These projectors will be shipped in September,
- Three JVC-developed D-ILA devices (red, green, blue) for a naturally rich, flicker-free picture;
- HQV Reon-VX video processor developed by Silicon Optix to ensure excellent image reproduction with precision I/P conversion and scaling;
- A high-performance 1.4 – 2.8:1 zoom lens with motorized focus features a large diameter, all-glass lens system with 16 elements in 17 groups that includes an ED lens to project a full HD image with exceptional depth and minimal chromatic aberration;
- Manual adjustment of the gamma curve via an on-screen display, allowing the viewer to adjust projector luminance levels by either increasing contrast in scenes that are too dark or dimming washed-out scenes to ensure precise brightness levels suited to individual preferences or viewing conditions. Up to three settings can be adjusted and stored for future use;
- Flexible set-up with a ±80 percent vertical and ±34 percent horizontal motorized lens shift function that allows the projected picture to be moved horizontally or vertically via the remote control.
- Other features include an external 12-volt trigger (not available on the DLA-HD550) that can be used to automatically raise and lower a screen or draw curtains, or it can be linked to engaging the V-Stretch mode and move an optional anamorphic wide screen lens system into place. Also, an automatic lens cover opens and closes with power on/off.
- All six projectors comply with HDMI version 1.3 (Deep Color/CEC) specifications, which provide for billions of colors and reproduce subtler shades of grey, and CEC compatibility for system control.
