JVC Ships 4K Up-Converting Projectors

Wayne, N.J. - Two new
JVC Americas Procision 3D-enabled D-ILA home
theater projectors that present 2D images in up to 4K resolution are now
shipping to dealers along with a 3D 1080p model, the company said Tuesday.

Similar Reference
Series versions offered through JVC's Professional systems group are also
available now, the company said.

All models include
three 0.7-inch 1,920 by 1,080 native D-ILA imaging chips.

The projectors were
introduced by JVC America at September's CEDIA Expo. The top two models in the
consumer home-theater lineup feature the company's e-Shift up-conversion technology
to display 2D HD content at four times the resolution of FullHD material.

These models
include a new lens memory function with three settings for storing custom focus,
zoom and lens shift position.

The Procision
series models include the DLA-X90R ($11,999 suggested retail) offering a
120,000:1 native contrast ratio and the DLA-X70R ($7,995) offering an 80,000:1
native contrast. Both are THX certified.

Using the e-Shift
technology, 2D HD content is up-converted and scaled to a 4K signal (3,840 by 2,160),
and the e-Shift technology displays it at full 4K precision, JVC said.

In the two top
models a combined 16-step lens and lamp aperture adjustment allow the user to
optimize the f-number (relative aperture) of the optics system in all steps.

JVC is including
two pairs of active-shutter 3D glasses and three-year warranties with the
top-of-the-line 4K projectors.

Rounding out the
trio is the DLA-X30 ($3,499), which will also present 3D images but omits the
e-Shift system. It offers a 50,000:1 native contrast ratio and comes with a two-year
warranty.
