CES 2023: JVC’s LX-NZ30 4K/HDR Projector Will Excite Gamers

Are you a gamer looking for a big scene experience? The JVC LX-NZ30 4K Projector might be ideal for your PS5 or Xbox and Blu-ray player.

JVC LX-NZ30 4K HDR Projector Black

Before the eCoustics team jettisoned off to Las Vegas for CES 2023, we created a wishlist for specific manufacturers; JVC were one of the brands that appeared on every single list and we were hoping that they would change their mind and announce a UST projector for $4,000 that would dominate the category.

JVC did announce a brand new high frame rate/high brightness 4K projector this morning but not of the UST variety.

The JVC LX-NZ30 might be a rather interesting new option for gamers who want to experience their Xbox or PS5 on the big screen without the frame rate and latency issues that make that experience rather frustrating with a lot of projectors.

Available in March 2023, the new $3,500 JVC LX-NZ30 4K/HDR projector boasts low latency and support for frame rates up to 1080p/240Hz. What’s more, it uses a new high power BLU-Escent laser light source that delivers 3,300 lumens and is rated for 20,000 hours of operation.

Both HDR10 and HLG formats are supported, with automatic picture mode selection. 

These features and capabilities make the new LX-NZ30 an ideal projector for high frame rate gaming and home theater, in either a dedicated environment or in rooms with higher ambient light.

The Skinny

High efficiency BLU-Escent laser light Source

A new 105W blue laser diode assembly replaces the previous 95W design, making it possible to achieve higher brightness of 3,300 lumens. This is an improvement of 10 percent over the previous model (LX-NZ3).

High brightness allows for use in rooms with higher ambient lighting, while increasing the peak brightness during HDR projection, allowing users to enjoy images with a wider dynamic range.

Supports HDR (High Dynamic Range)

The new LX-NZ30 projects HDR content with sharp, higher-quality, dynamic images. In addition to HDR 10 used in the ULTRA HD Blu-ray format, the projector also supports HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) used in broadcasting.

The projector detects the signal and automatically switches to the best quality mode so HDR content can be enjoyed without having to adjust individual settings.

Smooth video and low latency with support for high frame rate (up to 1080P/240Hz)

The new projector supports up to 1080P/240Hz input with latency as low as 6.25ms (1.5 frames). This allows users to enjoy game content with a frame rate much higher than what conventional projectors offer, and delivers the absolute smoothest motion on the largest projection screens.

Connectivity Options

In addition to dual HDMI Inputs (HDCP 2.3, the LX-NZ30 offers a variety of new connectivity options:

  • The DisplayPort 1.2a input terminal allows direct connection from a PC equipped with that terminal and supports a wide range of resolutions and refresh rates
  • USB* Direct Connect
  • Both RS232C and LAN Control Ports
  • 12V Trigger Port

Lens shift of ± 60 percent vertical, ± 23 percent horizontal, and 1.6X zoom for installation flexibility

In addition to a lens shift with a wide range of movement (up and down ± 60 percent, left and right ± 23 percent), the 1.6x zoom enables a projection distance of approximately 9.8 feet to 15.7 feet using a 100-inch screen. This allows flexibility for a variety of installation environments. 

Geometric distortion correction for ease of installation

In addition to the keystone correction function that adjusts horizontal, vertical, and tilt, the projector is equipped with other new adjustment functions. Corner adjustment adjusts all four corners, while warping corrects distortion for each area. In combination with lens shift, these features offer a high degree of installation flexibility.

High performance Dynamic Dimming Control

The laser light source controls the light output instantaneously, providing dynamic brightness adjustment with less delay compared to a conventional mechanical aperture. By controlling the output of the laser according to the brightness of the scene, black levels are improved and the projector reproduces images closer to human visual perception.

0.47-inch DMD enables high-definition 4K display
