JVC Intros Six New 3D Projectors

Posted Mon Sep 27, 2010 at 11:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

Three pro models and three consumer models make up the company's latest offerings.

If you're looking for 3D, look no farther than JVC. They've got new solutions for both consumer and professional environments, and they boast some downright impressive specs.

At the very top of the line is the DLA-X9, which shares the spotlight with the professional counterpart, the DLA-RS60. Gary Klasmeier, the engineering manager at JVC boasts that you won't find anything like it. " No other three-chip projectors in the home theater market can match the amazing 100,000:1 native contrast ratio of the DLA-RS60 or DLA-X9."

These two higher end models are the only ones that come packed with two pairs of glasses and an external emitter.

The DLA-RS50 and DLA-X7 sport a 70,000:1 contrast ratio and, like the X9 and RS60, are currently being tested by THX. JVC fully expects certification, since the projectors were designed around the THX requirements.

The DLA-RS40 and DLA-X3 are at the low end of the 3D projector lineup, but still boast a 50,000:1 contrast ratio. They're also the cheapest, at $4,495.

You'll be able to pick up all of JVC's new projectors this November. The X7 and RS40 will sell for $7,795 while the RS60 and X9 will run $11,995.
