New JVC PJs
JVC teased us with some video shot in 4,000 by 2,000 resolution shown on a projector of the same resolution. They even hinted that such resolution was possible in consumer equipment. Don’t hold your breath.
More exciting is the announcement of a new D-ILA projector, called the DLA-HD100 in consumer guise and the DLA-RS2 in commercial guise. The difference between the two being cosmetic. Now sporting a claimed 30,000:1 contrast ratio, this new projector looks very impressive. Seeing as we measured pretty close to the claimed contrast ratio of the DLA-HD1, I can’t wait to see what this new version will do in the lab. It also has an anamorphic mode and lens available so you can watch 2.35:1 movies on your 2.35:1 screen.
It should be available in November for “under $8000” (as in probably $7999).
