JVC today announced the new, 10 MegaPixel DLA-SH7NLG, a 4K D-ILA projector incorporating three 1.27-inch 4K2K D-ILA display devices for high-quality imaging and dual ultra-high-pressure mercury lamps for 5,000 ANSI lumens of brightness.
The 4K2K D-ILA projector is available now and can be installed in planetariums, museums, simulators, and medical institutions, as well as high-spec design and monitoring facilities.
The new model joins the DLA-SH4K, which debuted in January 2008 as a 4K D-ILA projector. Like its predecessor, the DLA-SH7NLG achieves ultra-high resolution of approximately 10 megapixels (4,096 x 2,400), which is five times the resolution of full HD, plus the projector has a 10,000:1 native contrast ratio.
Notable features of the new DLA-SH7NLG include:
1. With approximately 10 megapixels of resolution, JVC?s 4K2K D-ILA devices can simultaneously display two or four screens in WUXGA (1,920 x 1,200) resolution. Multi-screen projection is facilitated by four DVI (Dual-Link) input terminals supporting an array of PC input formats. The DLA-SH7NLG also offers a low latency mode for simulation environments.
2. High black quality with 10,000:1 native contrast thanks to a wire-grid optical engine.
3. Dual 330W ultra-high-pressure mercury lamps, producing 5,000 lumens of brightness. In single lamp mode, the DLA-SH7NLG can automatically choose the lamp with less cumulative operating time for maintenance efficiency. This, plus the addition of a low-power mode, enable lamp life of approximately 3,000 hours, which is about double that of conventional projectors.
4. Elaborate design offers operational flexibility, including stacking two projectors to display 3D images or installation on a +/- 90-degree tilt. The DLA-SH7NLG weighs about 110 pounds, excluding lens.
5. Three different lenses, including short-focus and telescopic models, are available for various projection environments.
The DLA-SH7NLG operates on normal AC 100-220V power and consumes less than 1.1 kW. Convergence can be adjusted to 1/10 pixel accuracy via GUI control, and three gamma tables are included. Six test patterns, including a crosshatch and color bars, enable image adjustment without external signal sources.
Projection configuration data is easily stored and uploaded from a USB memory device. The Ethernet-compatible DLA-SH7NLG can be configured via a PC Web browser, and multiple projectors are networkable for operation via a single PC. Plus, for improved maintenance, e-mails can be generated automatically to send lamp replacement reminders and error status notifications.
The DLA-SH7NLG has an MSRP of under $150,000 plus lens and is available immediately.
