JVC U.S.A. today unveiled six new 3D-enabled D-ILA projectors last week at CEDIA Expo in Atlanta. All six boast high native contrast ratios, with the top models delivering a 100,000:1 native contrast ratio.

The new projectors are the Reference Series DLA-RS60, DLA-RS50 and DLA-RS40, to be marketed by JVC's Professional Products Group, and the Procision Series DLA-X9, DLA-X7 and DLA-X3, to be available through JVC's Consumer Electronics Group.

"3D has recently become a major box office draw. Now, with 3D broadcast channels emerging, and a growing number of 3D Blu-ray titles available, consumers want the immersive 3D experience in their homes," said Gary Klasmeier, product engineering manager for D-ILA systems at JVC Professional Products, in a statement.

For 3D content, each projector includes two HDMI 1.4a ports and supports side-by-side (broadcast), frame series (Blu-ray), and above-below 3D transmissions. An external 3D signal emitter (PK-EM1) syncs the projected image with JVC's active-shutter 3D glasses (PK-AG1).

The new flagship projectors, the DLA-RS60 and DLA-X9 provide a 100,000:1 native contrast ratio and come with two pairs of 3D glasses and a PK-EM1 3D signal emitter.

"JVC's contrast ratio numbers are not artificially inflated by electronic circuitry or a dynamic iris, so every frame consistently and faithfully reproduces peak whites and deep blacks," said Klasmeier.

The DLA-RS50 and DLA-X7 offer a 70,000:1 native contrast ratio, while the DLA-RS40 and DLA-X3 come with a 50,000:1 native contrast ratio. All four projectors are compatible with JVC's PK-AG1 3D glasses and the signal emitter, which are sold separately.

All six new projectors feature three 0.7-inch 1920x1080 D-ILA devices and are designed around JVC's third-generation D-ILA High Dynamic Range optical engine that is optimized to provide exceptional native contrast ratios without a dynamic iris to artificially enhance contrast specifications, according to the company.A directed light integration system and wire grid polarizer ensures optimum light uniformity and minimal crosstalk in the light path.

With a new short arc gap, lamp brightness has been increased from earlier JVC models to 1,300 ANSI lumens, company officials said.To reduce motion blur, JVC's double-speed 120Hz Clear Motion Drive technology uses a newly developed LSI for frame interpolation black frame insertion.

The four top models--DLA-X7/DLA-RS50 and DLA-X9/DLA-RS60-- have been designed to achieve THX certification and are in the process of being tested by THX, according to JVC. They also include a new seven-axis color management system (R, G, B, C, M, Y and orange) that allows precise color tuning, and a choice of color profiles, including Adobe RGB, DCI and sRGB/HDTV. They will reportedly include an ISF C3 mode for professional calibration.

The new JVC D-ILA projectors will be available in late November. The DLA-RS60/DLA-X9will cost $11,995, the DLA-RS50/DLA-X7$7,995, and the DLA-RS40/DLA-X3 $4,495.
