Another big projector announcement expected at this week’s CEDIA Show: three new 4K projectors from JVC. Until now, the company was primarily making e-Shift 4K projectors (so called “Faux-K” projectors). Finally JVC is coming out with True 4K projectors.

Ok, it’s official now. Here are some quotes from today’s press release:

The new line is comprised of six projectors to be available in October 2018. They are the Procision Series DLA-NX9, DLA-NX7, DLA-NX5 and the Reference Series DLA-RS3000, DLA-RS2000 and DLA-RS1000. The DLA-NX9 and DLA-RS3000 with 8K e-shift technology and 100mm diameter high resolution glass lens deliver 8K images that rival reality. The DLA-NX7/DLA-RS2000 and DLA-NX5/DLA-RS1000 incorporate the latest 4K D-ILA device and a 65mm diameter glass lens to reproduce smooth, detailed 4K imagery.

The HDR10 mastering information MaxCLL (Maximum Content Light Level) / MaxFALL (Maximum Frame Average Light Level) varies greatly depending on content. Therefore, in order to achieve the best HDR10 experience it is necessary to set the appropriate brightness settings for each piece of programming. The new Auto Tone Mapping function in the new projectors automatically adjusts settings based on the mastering information. Various HDR images with different brightness can be viewed optimally without manual adjustment of the settings. In cases where content does not contain mastering information, a fixed value will be set or it can be manually adjusted.

A 265W ultra-high pressure mercury lamp and a highly efficient optical engine combine to deliver high brightness levels in every new JVC projector -- 2,200 lm for the DLA-NX9/DLA-RS3000, 1,900 lm for the DLA-NX7/DLA-RS2000 and 1,800 lm for the DLA-NX5/DLA-RS1000. Image quality is further improved thanks to the new D-ILA device, which has narrow pixel gap and improved light efficiency to provide a smooth, powerful image.

The new 0.69 inch native 4K D-ILA device and optical engine with wire grid provide a native contrast ratio of 100,000:1 (DLA-NX9/DLA-RS3000). In combination with JVC's Intelligent Lens Aperture, which analyzes the input image and automatically controls the black level, the top models deliver a spectacular dynamic contrast of 1,000,000:1. This high contrast ratio combined with the projectors' high brightness are what allow the new models to deliver a truly immersive high quality image experience. (For DLA-NX7/DLA-RS2000, native 80,000:1, dynamic 800,000:1; DLA-NX5/DLA-RS1000, native 40,000:1, dynamic 400,000:1.)

The new JVC projectors will be available in October at the following prices:

DLA-NX9/DLA-RS3000 $17,999.95
DLA-NX7/DLA-RS2000 $7,999.95
DLA-NX5/DLA-RS1000 $5,999.95
