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.
