An 8K e-shift projector has been announced.
JVC has revealed its latest lineup of home theater projectors, including the world's first 8K e-shift models. The collection includes 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 feature 8K e-shift technology and native 4K D-ILA devices. This allows the projectors to quadruple their resolution to 8K by shifting pixels diagonally 0.5 pixel. And though actual 8K signal input is not supported, JVC's Multiple Pixel Control high resolution technology can convert full HD and 4K images to 8K. Meanwhile, the DLA-NX7/DLA-RS2000 and DLA-NX5/DLA-RS1000 models are all described as native 4K projectors equipped with the company's newest 0.69-inch native 4K D-ILA device with 3.8 µm-pixel pitch, enabling support for 8.8 million pixels (4096 x 2160).
In addition, the entire lineup supports HDR10 and HLG high dynamic range formats, along with an Auto Tone Mapping feature and compatibility with 4K60P (4:4:4) signals. Likewise, the DLA-NX9/DLA-RS3000 and DLA-NX7/DLA-RS2000 feature wide color gamut capabilities beyond DCI-P3. Finally, ISF certification for color calibration, an installation mode capable of memorizing up to 10 different installation settings, an auto calibration function, a screen adjustment mode, and a low latency mode are all included as well.
The new JVC projector lineup is set to launch in October. Here's a rundown of pricing and additional features for each model per JVC:
DLA-NX9/DLA-RS3000 - $17,999.95
DLA-NX7/DLA-RS2000 - $7,999.95
DLA-NX5/DLA-RS1000 - $5,999.95
