JVC announced their flagship home theater projector, the Procision Series DLA-X90R (also known as the Reference Series DLA-RS65) D-ILA Projector capable of displaying theater-quality 3D as well as 2D material upconverted to a stunning 4K resolution. It features JVC’s new e-Shift technology capable of projecting images with 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution, four times that of full HD. Built from hand selected perfectly matched components and given a specialized final calibration, each projector achieves a 120,000:1 native contrast ratio, plus ISF and THX certifications. Both models come with two pairs of 3D glasses and a PK-EM1 3D Signal Emitter.
The Procision Series model will be marketed by JVC’s Consumer Electronics Group, and the Reference Series will be available through JVC Professional Products Company. The projectors are the same, except for the naming and gold accents on the Reference Series.
JVC’s new e-Shift technology processes the original 1920 x 1080 signal with a correlation detection algorithm to uncover detail that can be enhanced on a 4K display. This enhancement improves edge transitions, eliminates aliasing and stair-stepping, and increases contrast in detailed areas. New sub pixels are generated based on this detection and a 3840 x 2160 frame is created. This frame is then temporally separated into subframes 1920 x 1080 pixels each and projected using the D-ILA optical system and through the e-Shift device. This device utilizes a property of liquid crystals called birefringence and can switch between straight light and refracted light by 0.5 pixel both vertically and horizontally. It has no moving parts. The result is an image with 4 times the pixel density of the original content. See more technical data on JVC’s product page.
