JVC’s New 4K Projector announced

datePosted on 15:53, February 1st, 2010 by Many Ayromlou

JVC today announced their upcoming DLA-SH7NL DCinema Projector. A 4K2K D-ILA projector incorporating three 1.27″ 4K2K D-ILA display devices and packing dual mercury lamps for 5000 Lumens of brightness. The new machine — like its predecessor DLA-SH4K — achieves a resolution of roughly 10MP (4096×2400 pixels), plus a stunning 10,000:1 native contrast ratio.

JVC does Super Hi-Vision

datePosted on 21:08, May 2nd, 2008 by Many Ayromlou

Yep, in the classic “mine is bigger than yours” fashion, JVC has once again upped the ante by introducing the worlds first single display device capable of 8K Super Hi-Vision. That’s 8192x432o pixels of joy AKA 35 bloody megapixels. We recently covered the introduction of JVC’s 4K D-ILA projector and well now the new game is called 8K.

Victor Company of Japan, Ltd. (JVC) announces a new addition to its lineup of proprietary D-ILA (Direct-Drive Image Light Amplifier) high-definition reflective liquid crystal devices for projectors. The newly developed 1.75-inch 8K4K D-ILA device has the world’s largest number of pixels and is able to display images of approximately 35 megapixels (8192 x 4320 pixels), the equivalent of more than 17 times the level of Full High-Definition. This means that a single display device can now produce Super Hi-Vision images and can display images with the highest number of pixels currently defined under international standards.

After JVC developed the initial 7.86-megapixel (3840 x 2048 pixels) 4K2K D-ILA device in the summer of 2003, it subsequently further evolved the technology for highly realistic, high-definition images through a range of test viewings and verification testing, resulting in the development of JVC’s first commercial 4K2K D-ILA device (1.7-inch device size, 5,000:1 device contrast ratio) and the 4K2K D-ILA projector incorporating that device in September 2004.

In June 2007 JVC developed a 1.27-inch 4K2K D-ILA device that was the world’s smallest device of its kind, having a 6.8µm pixel pitch and 4096 x 2400 pixels, and in February 2008 it began marketing a newly commercialized professional D-ILA projector, DLA-SH4K, incorporating that device.

Through the development of a new production process and new pixel structure for even finer pixels, JVC has now succeeded in developing the 1.75-inch 8K4K D-ILA device, the world’s first device to achieve real Super Hi-Vision definition level. The new device has approximately 50% higher density in its ratio of area per pixel as compared to the 1.27-inch 4K2K D-ILA device, which was originally the world’s smallest 4K device. Furthermore, the new device has achieved a video display of approximately 35 megapixels, the world’s highest pixel counts, while continuing to provide the D-ILA series’ characteristics such as “high-quality images without a distracting pixel structure”, “high light availability”, and “high contrast ratio”.

Sony gets dethroned….JVC joins the 4K Projection club

If you’ve been tuned into Digital Cinema Projection for the past couple of years, you’d know that when it comes to 4K projection (4Kx2K image), sony’s SXRD series was pretty much the only game in town. DLP is limited to 2K and most of the projectors out there (Christie, Barco, NEC) are all 2K projectors. A downside of Sony’s projector is that although it is as hefty as a small car it only has a 2000:1 contrast ratio (measured less than that calibrated). Its rated aggresively for 40ft screens which is not nearly big enough for true cinema applications.

That was true until JVC announced their 1.27-inch 4Kx2K D-ILA (Direct-drive Image Light Amplifier) chip at InfoComm 2007. The chip can produce a 4096×2400 pixel image with a 20,000:1 contrast ratio. That’s nearly 10x the contrast ratio of the Sony behemoth.

It measures 660 x 827 x 340 mm and is slated for launch in the first half of 2008.
