Home Theater Magazine Names Two JVC Projectors “Top Picks”

JVC DLA-X7

JVC DLA-X7

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.”

JVC Reveals New Details And Revised Specifications For New D-ILA Home Theater Projectors

JVC Reveals New Details And Revised Specifications For New D-ILA Home Theater Projectors

Among four new projectors are two THX® Certified models with the industry’s highest native contrast ratio – 50,000:1.

WAYNE, NJ, September 25, 2008 – JVC today released additional technical information and revised specifications for four recently announced D-ILA home theater projectors to be available this fall. Among the four new full high-definition front projectors are two THX® Certified* models that offer a native contrast ratio of 50,000:1, the industry’s highest. The other two models achieve native contrast ratios of 32,000:1 and 30,000:1. Like current highly-acclaimed JVC projectors, all four new models achieve high contrast ratios without the use of an auto iris.

The new projectors are the DLA-HD750 and DLA-HD350, to be marketed by JVC’s consumer group, JVC Company of America, and the DLA-RS20 and DLA-RS10 from JVC’s professional group, JVC Professional Products Company. All four projectors were first announced earlier this month with lower contrast ratio specifications.

Contributing to the projectors’ superior native contrast ratio is a newly developed lens with a 16-step fixed aperture in the DLA-HD750 and DLA-RS20 that helps eliminate extraneous light that can reduce contrast levels and allows adjustment of brightness to suit user preferences. The DLA-HD350 and DLA-RS10 feature a three-step aperture. In addition, changing the structural design of the optical section from a conventional L-shape with a mirror to a straight configuration reduced light leakage. Combining this new structure with a highly efficient lamp allows the new projectors to achieve a brightness of 900 (DLA-HD750/DLA-HD20) and 1,000 (DLA-HD350/DLA-RS10) lumens.

JVC UNVEILS 10 MEGAPIXEL ULTRA HIGH DEFINITION PROJECTOR

JVC UNVEILS 10 MEGAPIXEL ULTRA HIGH DEFINITION PROJECTOR
4K2K D-ILA Projector Provides Four Times the Resolution of Full HD

Denver, CO (September 3, 2008) – JVC unveils the world’s smallest 4K2K ultra high definition projector, the DLA-SH4K. Based on the company’s new proprietary 1.27-inch 10 megapixel D-ILA devices, the DLA-SH4K projects images at greater than 4 times the resolution and clarity of the industry’s latest full high definition projectors. The higher resolution will bring a new level of reality to aircraft simulators, medical analysis, 3D display, command and control, museums, theme parks, and ultra high-end home theaters.

The DLA-SH4K will be unveiled at CEDIA September 3 – 6, 2008 and will be on display throughout the show in the JVC Theater located at The Denver Center for the Performing Arts next to the Denver convention center.

The projector’s chassis achieves a remarkable 65% reduction in size compared with conventional projectors in its class. This was achieved in part by using JVC’s latest 1.27-inch Direct Drive Image Light Amplifier (D-ILA) devices and a new optical system. D-ILA is a proprietary form of Liquid Crystal on Silicone (LCOS), a reflective technology that offers far greater pixel density than competing devices.
