Later this month JVC Kenwood will release in Japan the DLA-VS4800, the company's first 8K Super Hi-Vision projector.
The projector takes advantage of JVC's e-Shift pixel technology to project a virtual resolutions of 8,192 ? 4,800 pixels. The projector's D-ILA display panel is half that resolution (4K, 4,096 x 2,400) but projects two images alternated at 120Hz, one shifted slightly diagonally. This creates the impression of a higher resolution display.
The device is also equipped with a wire grid polarization to achieve high accuracy, a native contrast of 10 000:1 and displays 12bit colors. Its 4500lm luminance has been achieved by using two high pressure mercury lamps of 330W.
The DLA-VS4800 is rated at 1,100 W and its weight is about 51kg. It's reatil price will not be lower than 2,500,000 Yen ($261k), without the 4 available lenses.
Japan is schedulling to start test broadcastings of 4K/8K content in 2016.
