CES 2022: New JVC Projectors At Breakthrough Price

JVC Adds New D-ILA Projectors with 48Gbps HDMI at Breakthrough Price!

LONG BEACH, CA., January 3, 2022 – JVC brings the performance of its renowned D-ILA projector technology to a broader audience with the introduction of two new entry-level models. Both are lamp light source models with support for 4K120p input and are compatible with HDR10+ content. Equally important, the new Procision Series DLA-NP5 and Reference Series DLA-RS1100 feature JVC’s acclaimed D-ILA technology for impressive black level and native contrast.

The new models complete the JVC projector lineup for 2022, which also includes the recently introduced BLU-Escent laser projectors with 8K60p and 4K120p input. They are the Procision Series DLA-NZ9, DLA-NZ8, and DLA-NZ7, and the Reference Series DLA-RS4100, DLA-RS3100, and DLA-RS2100.

HDR10+ provides dynamic tone mapping with a wide range of streaming content and select 4K UHD Discs. 48Gbps HDMI connectivity, with HDCP 2.3 content protection is ideal for the latest gaming consoles.

Key Features

1. 4K120p inputs with HDCP 2.3

1.1 Dual 48Gbps inputs with HDCP 2.3 provide the most future proof connectivity and are ideal for next generation source devices and current gaming consoles.

1.2 High Speed LSI for 4K120p input and video processing

4K120p input is becoming more valuable every day, and is effective in displaying high frame rate gaming content. Along with low latency mode, this opens up new possibilities for projectors to provide high quality gaming on larger screens. The 0.69” native 4K D-ILA device complements this with improved drive performance.

2. High resolution and high contrast with 0.69 inch native 4K D-ILA device

The DLA-NP5 and DLA-RS1100 are equipped with the same 0.69” native 4K D- ILA device as used on premium JVC models. D-ILA’s unique narrow-pitch pixel process makes it difficult to see the grid even on the largest screens, enabling smooth and high-definition video expression unique to native 4K.

3. All-glass lens capable of resolving 4K information

The DLA-NP5/RS1100 is equipped with a 65mm diameter all-glass lens with 17 elements in 15 groups to deliver high-resolution images that are in focus all the way to the periphery of the screen.

4. HDR (High Dynamic Range) content

Support has been added for HDR10+, which uses dynamic metadata, along with the HDR10 format used in UHD Blu-ray and streaming. Both methods support wider color gamut such as BT2020, and 10-bit color gradation. The HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) format used in broadcasting is also available.

4.1 HDR10+ support

With HDR10+ the luminance information for each scene is embedded in the content as metadata so tone mapping can be performed according to the scene. This makes it possible to faithfully reproduce the HDR images as intended by the creators. By comparison, HDR10, the basic standard for HDR playback, has only two pieces of information: MaxCLL (Maximum Content Light Level), which represents the maximum brightness of the content, and MaxFALL (Maximum Frame Average Light Level), which represents the brightest average frame.

4.2 JVC’s unique Frame Adapt HDR and Theater Optimizer

JVC’s Frame Adapt HDR performs dynamic tone mapping — either frame by frame, or scene by scene — based on analysis of HDR10 content, while Theater Optimizer automatically performs optimal tone mapping according to the installation environment. 18-bit level gamma processing suppresses tonal gradations in bright areas and blacks in dark areas, and reproduces smooth gradations with high accuracy. Together, these two unique features deliver the best possible HDR image automatically.

5. Auto Picture Mode Select

Auto Picture Mode Select allows the preferred picture mode to be preset for SDR (2D), SDR (3D), HDR and HLG. Once this has been done, completely automatic picture mode selection is ensured. The user does not need to do anything to enjoy their favorite content correctly.

6. Improved accuracy of proprietary Clear Motion Drive image blur reduction technology

Clear Motion Drive is JVC’s original image blur reduction technology. It now offers smoother motion and greater accuracy by analyzing more frames of video than before. In combination with Motion Enhance, which optimizes the drive of the D-ILA device according to the movement of the image, this technology improves 4K motion reproduction.

7. High brightness and high contrast design

Achieves 1,900 lumen brightness using a 265W ultra-high pressure mercury lamp and a highly efficient optical engine.

4K D-ILA devices and an optical engine with a wire grid achieve a native contrast of 40,000:1. The intelligent lens aperture analyzes the input image and automatically controls the black level, resulting in a dynamic contrast of 400,000:1. The synergy of high dynamic range and high brightness delivers the exceptional images JVC is known for.

Other Features

  • ISF-certified. Can be calibrated by ISF-certified engineers.
  • The Installation Settings function allows up to 10 types of installation adjustments to be saved and easily recalled. These include lens memory, pixel adjustment, and screen masking. Screen size and gain, and aspect ratios can also be set.
  • Auto-calibration is possible to optimize color and gamma performance. This requires an optional sensor and JVC calibration software, which is available as a free download.
  • The Screen Setting Mode corrects color imbalance caused by screen characteristics.
