JVC spotlighted on the opening day of CEDIA 2018 Thursday a model under two labels within its projector line that it is billing as the world’s first 8K e-shift home theater projector.
The projectors are the Procision Series DLA-NX9/ Reference Series DLA-RS3000, which are the same but labeled differently to sell through different distribution channels at $17,999.95, when they become available in October.
Both models also feature 100mm diameter high-resolution glass lenses and achieve 8K display (the company notes that 8K signal input is not supported).
JVC’s e-shift is proprietary high-resolution display technology that quadruples the resolution by shifting pixels diagonally 0.5 pixel. In the DLA-NX9/DLA-RS3000, e-shift technology together with native 4K D-ILA devices produce an 8K image on the screen. The 8K e-shift image provides higher resolution than 4K. Also, by using JVC’s own Multiple Pixel Control high-resolution technology, full HD and 4K images are also converted to high-definition 8K images.
The entire new JVC projector lineup, including the aforementioned models, consists of a half-dozen entries, all to be available in October as well. The other models are the Procision Series DLA-NX7, DLA-NX5 and the Reference Series DLA-RS2000 and DLA-RS1000. The DLA-NX7/DLA-RS2000 and DLA-NX5/DLA-RS1000 incorporate the latest JVC 4K D-ILA device and a 65mm diameter glass lens.
