JVC today introduced a low-cost home theater projector that for the first time provides advanced D-ILA technology at an entry-level price.
The new projector, to be marketed as the DLA-HD250 by JVC Consumer and the DLA-HD250Pro by JVC Professional, is priced below $3,000 and delivers 25,000:1 native contrast ratio and 1,000 ANSI lumens brightness.
The DLA-HD250/250Pro features three 0.7-inch 1920?1080 D-ILA devices. Combined with JVC's wire-grid optical engine, the new projector provides high native contrast - without a dynamic iris to artificially inflate contrast specifications. Plus, a HQV Reon-VX video processor by Silicon Optix ensures excellent image reproduction with precision I/P conversion and scaling.
Other features include a high-performance 2x motorized zoom lens with auto dust cover, as well as on-screen, customizable gamma control and ultra-quiet (19dB) operation. The DLA-HD250/250Pro is also suitable for brighter environments, such as great rooms or bar and restaurant installations, thanks to its 1,000 lumens of brightness.
The DLA-HD250/250Pro will be available later this month for $2,995. It carries a two-year warranty.
