JVC Next-Gen D-ILA Projectors
New at CEDIA are two projectors from JVC that build on the success of its D-ILA (LCoS) technology. As in previous generations, both projectors are available through JVC's consumer and professional distribution channels. The DLA-HD350 (consumer) and DLA-RS10 (pro) use three 0.7" 1920x1080 D-ILA imagers and offer improved all-glass lenses with motorized zoom, focus, and lens cover as well as an HQV Reon-VX video processor from Silicon Optix. The native contrast ratio is 17,000:1 (no dynamic iris), and the list price is slated to be under $6000.
The step-up models are DLA-HD750 and RS20, which include all the features of the HD350/RS10 and add THX certification, and they will carry a list price under $8000. The native contrast ratio is 30,000:1, just like the HD100 and RS2. All models also output more light and are even quieter than the previous generation. The HD350/RS10 should be available in the October/November time frame, while the release date of the step-up models is TBD.
