They Call Me "New"
I missed a live demo of JVCs new 3-chip 1080p D-ILA (variant of LCOS) projector in CEDIA a few weeks ago by mere minutes. This time they were showing it in comparison with to their older 720p DLA-HX1 projector. No doubt that 1080p is sharper, but that was only the beginning. The new projector is also several factors better, subjectively, in areas of color saturation and blackness. More impressively, the light output on a 115" (diagonal) screen was exhilerating! You can really get a big screen with one of these.
While we reported an asking price of $7,000, $2,000 more than the 3 chip SXRD based (variant of LCOS) Sony "pearl" we also saw at CEDIA, the picture was truly impressive. I'd like to see them side by side (and stay tuned - because I will tomorrow - sort of!)
