JVC expands its D-ILA home theater projector line-up with the introduction of the high definition DLA-RS1 projector, featuring a 0.7-inch full HD D-ILA device that achieves a native 15,000:1 contrast ratio.
At the core of the DLA-RS1 is advanced video processing co-developed by JVC and Gennum Corporation.
JVC's new DLA-RS1 encompasses next generation D-ILA -- fully digital driven. JVC's renowned D-ILA (Direct Drive Image Light Amplifier) chip technology in a 3-panel design, eliminates the mechanical spinning color separation wheel and "rainbow" effects found in competing technologies. JVC?s newly developed 0.7-inch full HD D-ILA device exhibits a significant reduction in stray light caused by the dispersion and diffraction of reflected light, according to JVC.
Additionally, each of the three D-ILA chips has a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 allowing the projector to fully display a full HD 1080p signal without scaling. JVC's new optical design provides a native contrast ratio of more than 15,000 to 1, a first in home cinema projectors.
The DLA-RS1's full 1080p enable audio/video professionals and home theater enthusiasts to sit closer to the screen and open the angle of view. Additionally, this projector can be used in a variety of room environments due to its adjustable 80% vertical and 34% horizontal shift lens. The 2x manual zoom lens has a range of 1.4 - 2.8:1, making it suitable for screens 60" to 200" inches wide in a typical home theater.
The DLA-RS1 is equipped with dual HDMI input (PC and HDTV HDCP) accepts full HD 1080p signals provided by Blu-ray. Component, composite, and S-Video inputs are also provided. Via its RS-232 port, the unit can be externally operated by popular home theater automation controllers. Additionally, the projector features a convenient video adjustment menu that allows users to adjust the picture according to the source video as well as their own preferences.
The suggested list price for the DLA-RS1 is $6,295 and it will be available Q1 2007.
