Home Theater Projector from JVC

home theater projectorBack in late September JVC announced their new home theater projectors that utilize their high-end D-ILA projection technology. There is the DLA-HD250 by JVC Consumer and DLA-HD250 Pro by JVC Professional. Both of these projectors offer a 25,000:1 native contrast ratio and feature 1,000 ANSI lumens of brightness.

The DLA-HD250/250 Pro features three different 0.7-inch 1920 x 1080 D-ILA devices. JVC says that the devices provide “a naturally flicker-free picture with true blacks and extraordinary luminance details.” They also claim that there are many different advantages to having D-ILA instead of the usual projector technology. First, it is important to understand that D-ILA simply means a variant of liquid crystal on silicon. It allows the pixels to be packed closer together. This eliminates the use of separate imaging chips for red, green, and blue. It also gets rid of the “screen door effect.” D-ILA also aligns the liquid crystal layers in a vertical pattern. The company claims that this allows for the projector to have such a high contrast ratio and also allows for an inorganic alignment layer that helps to extend the projector's life.

When the D-ILA featured with the DLA-HD250/250 Pro is combined with JVC’s amazing optical engine, the projector is able to provide its high contrast ratio without needing a dynamic iris to inflate contrast specifications. The projectors also feature a HQZ Reon-VX video processor from Silicon Optix. This ensures incredible image reproduction on the projectors with precision I/P conversion and scaling.
The other features included with the DLA-HD250/250 Pro are a 2x motorized zoom lens with an auto dust cover, customizable gamma control, and a quiet (19dB) operation. The projectors are designed for home theater purposes but can also be used in brighter environments. Bars and restaurants can easily use this projector and have no problems because of the 1,000 lumens of brightness utilized.

The DLA-HD250/250 Pro comes standard with a two year warranty. They are currently available for $2,995.
