Fresh from IFA and CEDIA, and premiered at Habitech’s TechFest event, the new native 4K projector line-up announced this week includes the DLA-NX9 with 8K e-shift technology.
Habitech will the new JVC tech with 8K up-scaling at this month’s TechFest dealer event. JVC’s DLA-NX9 applies the company’s proprietary e-shift processing using its latest 0.69in native 4K D-ILA chips (as deployed by the award-winning DLA-Z1) to create an 8K image.
Equipped with JVC’s Multiple Pixel Control (MPC) and Intelligent Lens Aperture tech, the DLA-NX9 promises natural detail and dynamic images, upscaling 4K and FHD sources to 8K. To ensure consistent image fidelity across the screen and throughout a wide shift range of +/-100% vertical and +/-43% horizontal, the DLA-NX9 employs a high resolution 18-element, 16-group all-glass 100mm lens, including specialised RGB refractive elements for image accuracy. An ‘Auto Tone Mapping’ feature reads mastering info in HDR10 and HLG content to optimise brightness, and to exploit the enhanced contrast of HDR, the DLA-NX9’s Intelligent Lens Aperture is capable of generating a dynamic contrast of 1,000,000:1 from a native 100,000:1 ratio. A new cinema filter has been engineered to accommodate HDR’s wider colour space and for smooth on-screen action, JVC has upgraded its Clear Motion Drive technology to support 4K60P (4:4:4) signals.
Launched alongside the DLA-NX9 are two further JVC home theatre projectors each with its latest 0.69in Native 4K D-ILA chips supported by Intelligent Lens Aperture tech, Auto Tone Mapping, wider colour capability and 4K Clear Motion Drive processing. The DLA-N7 offers a dynamic contrast ratio of 800,000:1 from a native 80,000:1 and the DLA-N5, ratios of 400,000:1 dynamic and 40,000:1 native. The DLA-NX9 and DLA-N7 are available in black, the DLA-N5 in white or black.
