JVC 4K e-Shift4 Projector

Six new custom installation projectors have been announced.

JVC has revealed its latest lineup of 4K e-Shift4 projectors geared toward the custom installation market. The 2017 collection includes the Procision Series DLA-X970R, DLA-X770R, and DLA-X570R, and the Reference Series DLA-RS620, DLA-RS520, and DLA-RS420.

The new projectors feature improved brightness thanks to their updated optics, 265W high-power lamp, and D-ILA device. Likewise, the lineup's flagship models offer an industry-leading native contrast ratio of 160,000:1. In addition, the units include high dynamic range support for HDR10 and Hybrid Log-Gamma formats, along with two full speed 18Gbps HDMI inputs with HDCP 2.2. Though not capable of projecting in native 4K resolution, the projectors' eShift4 tech allows them to create 4K (3840x2160) images by shifting pixels diagonally 0.5 pixels at a rate of up to 120 Hz, multiplying the resolution. Finally, the devices also offer 1080p 3D playback and a new low latency mode for improved gaming performance.

Here's a full rundown of key specs for each model per the press release:
