High Contrast

3rd Generation Native 4K D-ILA Device

D-ILA device is the heart of projectors that plays an important role in projecting beautiful images. Device improvement continues to date – the third generation 0.69-inch native 4K D-ILA device improved the alignment control of liquid crystals and enhanced the flatness of image pixels to offer 1.5-times* the native contrast ratio compared to the Gen2 device. Additionally, improvements in the device manufacturing process have resulted in improved screen uniformity and enhanced image quality. *:DLA-NZ800 and DLA-RS3200 are 1.25-times.

Unparalleled Black Level and High Luminance Deliver Images Brimming with Reality

The new D-ILA projector boasts the industry’s highest native contrast with the Gen3 0.69-inch 4K D-ILA device and wire-grid optical engine, however in combination with the dynamic laser light control, which analyzes the incoming video signal to automatically control the amount of outgoing laser light, a dynamic contrast level of ∞:1 (infinity to 1) can be achieved in scenes with pitch blackness by completely shutting off the light source. As a result, images brimming with reality that are closer to human perception can be produced. Likewise, the new algorithm enables laser control with greater precision to meet the user’s preferences.

High Brightness

Exceptional Brightness and Longevity with BLU-Escent Laser

Another essential aspect of projectors lies in their light source. The DLA-NZ series adopts JVC’s original laser light source “BLU-Escent Laser” to achieve exceptional peak brightness of 3,300 lumens on the DLA-NZ900 and 2,700 lumens on the DLA-NZ800, both with longevity of 20,000 hours. When compared to the first-generation laser projector*, the projectors’ brightness per effective wattage has improved 1.9-fold, which, as a result, also contributes to saving power through improved power efficiency.

*When compared to the DLA-Z1

Controlling the Luminance in 101 Steps

BLU-Escent Laser can finely adjust the luminance according to the environment and preference using the Light Source Control by slider adjustment. There are a total of 101 (0 – 100) luminance control steps that can be used to make fine adjustments to match the target luminance in the environment and on the screen.

High Resolution

8K60p Input or Ultra-high Res 8K Content.  4K120p Input or Games and More.

This D-ILA models support a variety of inputs including full 48Gbps 8K60p. By adopting LSIs developed with the latest technology, it is now possible to process four times the amount of information from input to D-ILA device instantly and correctly display 8K signals. As a result, users can enjoy stable high-quality 8K images at all times. Also, using 4K120p input with the Low Latency Mode further improves response to the player’s rapid operations, making it effective for displaying high frame-rate gaming content on large screens.

Gen 2 8K/e-shiftX Realizes Remarkable 8K Resolution Display

VC’s proprietary 8K/e-shiftX, which is a combination of “e-shift technology” – a high-resolution display technology that doubles the resolution by shifting a pixel by 0.5 pixels in four directions up, down, left, and right – and “0.69-inch native 4K D-ILA devices” has made significant progress as the second generation 8K/e-shiftX. The latest version features JVC's newest 8K scaling engine that drastically improves the projector’s sharpness and detail across a wide range of content, including 8K (8192 x 4320 pixels) sources.

All-glass Lens System Made to Clearly Depict Everything What 8K Image Has to Offer

The DLA-NZ800 is equipped with an 17-element, 15-group all-glass lens featuring a full aluminum lens barrel. To project high resolution 8K images to every corner of the screen.

Ultimate Dynamic range

HDR Drastically Improves Expressive Power of Images

When it comes to reproducing the rich video information of HDR content, including the extended brightness range, BT.2020 wide color gamut and 10-bit gradation, rely on the new D-ILA projectors. Both models support all HDR formats including HDR10 for Blu-ray and streaming, HLG for broadcasting, and the HDR10+ with dynamic metadata compatibility. The projectors’ improvements for higher brightness and contrast have helped to achieve a wider dynamic range, allowing users to enjoy an immersive experience with HDR images full of reality.

DML (Display Mastering Luminance) for Better HDR Experience

DML (Max Display Mastering Luminance) metadata, which represents the nit level of the professional monitor used to grade the movie to the director's standards, is used to set the dynamic range of the title for improved HDR tone mapping. On the DLA-NZ900/NZ800 series, both DML and MaxCLL values are used for the HDR levels.

HDR10+ described

In HDR10, the basic standard for reproducing HDR content, there are only two pieces of information: MaxCLL, which represents the maximum brightness of the content, and MaxFALL, which represents the average maximum brightness. However with HDR10+, the luminance information for each scene is embedded in the content as metadata, which allows for scene-specific tone mapping and faithfully reproduces the HDR image intended by the creator.

Gen2 Frame Adapt HDR Function for Brighter and More Colorful HDR Images

The Frame Adapt HDR function, which uses a proprietary algorithm to instantaneously analyze the maximum brightness of any HDR10 content per scene or per frame and perform real-time tone mapping to optimal dynamic range for video projection, has evolved into the second generation (Gen2). The algorithm for tone mapping has been fully reexamined to achieve HDR images with higher definition. Furthermore, the proprietary algorithm for tone curve selection has also been improved to reproduce HDR images that are brighter, more colorful and have a wider dynamic range.

Deeper Blacks for Richer Graduation

The new Deep Black Tone Control has been added to Frame Adapt HDR, with a new algorithm to further subdue tones in dark areas to achieve more realistic darkness. This function maximizes the dynamic range of the new-generation 4K D-ILA devices and delivers images with more contrast than ever before. Scenes with light and dark shades such as nightscapes can be projected with greater realism.

Theatre Optimizer for optimal reproduction of HDR content suitable to each environment

Brightness of the projector screen varies depending on the screen size, gain, frequency of use, and Setting. JVC projectors intelligently adjust tone mapping so that the content can be viewed at the appropriate brightness by automatically analyzing the environment in which the projector is used, simply by entering the screen size and gain information under Theater Optimizer in the Frame Adapt HDR picture mode. This ensures reference picture quality at the appropriate brightness, suitable to each custom home theater environment.
