JVC's New Projectors Get THX 3D Certified

Posted Mon Nov 15, 2010 at 09:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

After a lengthy testing process, they get the stamp of approval.

3D certification from THX is still relatively new, but it's impressive nonetheless that JVC's projectors – the DLA-RS60, DLA-X9, DLA-RS50 and DLA-X7 - are the first to earn it.

The process involves over 400 laboratory tests to determine a projector's worth. THX deals with color accuracy, viewing angles, video processing and perhaps the most important thing of all – cross-talk. After these tests, if the projectors are up to snuff, THX gives it the go-ahead.

In addition to rooting out the best of the best, THX certification gives you the option of THX Cinema Mode, a setting designed to bring out the best in your projector without you having to root around in the video menus. THX Cinema Mode can even be tuned further by THX professional calibrators.

The DLA-RS60 and DLA-X9 projectors will hit pro and consumer markets later this month at a price of $11,996 while the DLA-RS50 and DLA-X7 come in at $7,995.
