LAS VEGAS, January 10, 2012 – JVC is here at the 2012 International CES demonstrating the first home theater projectors that display 2D HD content with full 4K precision. The new models, which became available last month, feature JVC’s new e-Shift technology capable of projecting images with 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution, four times that of full HD. The upconverting technology is available in two of three JVC Procision Series 3D-enabled projectors that boast a wide range of advancements, including higher native contrast than previous models for levels that remain unmatched by any other home theater projector.
The latest JVC projector reviews come from Home Theater, which recently posted reviews of both the DLA-X3 and DLA-X7, and awarded both "Top Pick" status. The DLA-X7 earned a five-star rating -- the highest possible -- for "performance," while the DLA-X3 was awarded 4.5 stars for "performance" and a five-star rating for "value".
Here are some excerpts from the DLA-X3 review by Kris Deering:
- “To say I was impressed would be an understatement. JVC has done a phenomenal job in its implementation of 3D with this freshman effort.”
- “I can honestly say I’m more impressed with the DLA-X3’s 3D performance than any 3D I’ve ever seen at a commercial theater.”
- “With 2D playback, the DLA-X3 was one of the best projectors I’ve ever used. “
- “In the DLA-X3, it is truly amazing that JVC has been able to improve on their 2D performance and deliver exceptional 3D performance with their freshman effort, all at a price of $4,495.”
As for the DLA-X7, reviewer Shane Buettner had this to say:
- “…this projector’s 2D performance was subtly but noticeably improved in some important areas compared to my DLA-HD750.”
- “The DLA-X7 looked so sharp and detailed, and its 3D effects are so convincing, that it blows away what you’ll see from most commercial Digital Cinema 3D.”
- “I bought the DLA-X7 as my new reference projector. My money’s where my mouth is, and that, dear reader, is the highest recommendation I or anyone else can offer.”

A projector-based home theater discreet? That's the spin that The Wall Street Journal put on home theater projectors in an article from this past Saturday (Dec. 4). After explaining the benefits of a projector versus a large-screen flat panel TV, the article offers three suggested projectors. Among them -- the JVC DLA-X3/DLA-RS40. Read the full article here.
JVC introduced a new line of home theater projectors last week in Atlanta at CEDIA Expo, a trade show for the custom installation business. You can find the press release here to get all the details. For a quick overview from JVC's own experts, here are two video interviews shot during the show. The first is from AVForums.com, which interviewed Dan McCarron, National Product Specialist for JVC's Consumer Display Division. The second is from HomeTheaterForum.com and features Dave Walton, Assistant Vice President, JVC Professional.
ATLANTA, September 23, 2010 – JVC U.S.A. today introduced a low-cost home theater projector that for the first time provides advanced D-ILA technology at an entry-level price. The new projector, to be marketed as the DLA-HD250 by JVC Consumer and the DLA-HD250Pro by JVC Professional, is priced below $3,000 and delivers 25,000:1 native contrast ratio and 1,000 ANSI lumens brightness.
The DLA-HD250/250Pro features three 0.7-inch 1920x1080 D-ILA devices for a naturally rich, flicker-free picture with true blacks and extraordinary luminance detail. Combined with JVC’s wire-grid optical engine, the new projector provides outstanding native contrast – without a dynamic iris to artificially inflate contrast specifications. Plus, an advanced HQV Reon-VX video processor by Silicon Optix ensures excellent image reproduction with precision I/P conversion and scaling.
WAYNE, NJ, September 20, 2010 – JVC Professional Products, a division of JVC U.S.A., today unveiled the DLA-VS2100U D-ILA projector at 2010 FSEMC, an annual conference serving the flight simulation and training industry, in Brighton, U.K. The newest addition to JVC’s Visualization Series, the rugged DLA-VS2100U was specifically developed for simulation environments and other visualization applications.
The DLA-VS2100U has a new optical engine that uses three D-ILA imagers to deliver 1920×1080 native resolution and 20,000:1 native contrast ratio, which is double the contrast of JVC’s current model, the DLA-VS2000U. The new projector also features a new 220W UHP lamp that delivers 1000 ANSI lumens, an increase in brightness that will provide greater brightness headroom in larger or low-efficiency systems as well as a lower cost of ownership.
WAYNE, NJ, March 17, 2010 – JVC Professional Products, division of JVC U.S.A., today announced the new, 10 MegaPixel DLA-SH7NLG, a 4K D-ILA projector incorporating three 1.27-inch 4K2K D-ILA display devices for high-quality imaging and dual ultra-high-pressure mercury lamps for 5,000 ANSI lumens of brightness. Combining superb definition and resolution with low-cost maintenance, the 4K2K D-ILA projector is available now and is ideal for planetariums, museums, simulators, and medical institutions, as well as high-spec design and monitoring facilities.
The new model joins the DLA-SH4K, which debuted in January 2008 as a 4K D-ILA projector and quickly drew high praise. Like its predecessor, the DLA-SH7NLG achieves ultra-high resolution of approximately 10 megapixels (4,096 x 2,400), which is five times the resolution of full HD, plus the projector has a stunning 10,000:1 native contrast ratio.
Notable features of the new DLA-SH7NLG include:
1. With approximately 10 megapixels of resolution, JVC’s 4K2K D-ILA devices can simultaneously display two or four screens in WUXGA (1,920 x 1,200) resolution. Multi-screen projection is facilitated by four DVI (Dual-Link) input terminals supporting an array of PC input formats. The DLA-SH7NLG also offers a low latency mode for simulation environments.
2. True black quality with stunning 10,000:1 native contrast thanks to a wire-grid optical engine.
AV enthusiast publication Sound & Vision has posted a front projector comparison review from its February/March issue to its website. The test includes the JVC DLA-HD550. Reviewer Brent Butterworth notes that the HD550's "ability to reproduce deep black is in a whole other class than what I’ve seen from any other $5,000 projector." He also says that the "DLA-HD550 delivers an extraordinarily dynamic, punchy picture. Contrast and detail are awesome, especially considering the projector’s price."
