In addition to its full lineup of new eShift3 projectors, and impressive demonstrations of them in its booth at the Denver Convention Center and at an off-site location, JVC also announced an 84-inch, 4K monitor at $13,500. The set was shown only at that off-site location, and as it is apparently intended for the pro market, it was not shown on the CEDIA show floor.

The VPL-VW600ES SXRD projector is Sony’s latest 4k home theater projector. It offers a full 4096 x 2160 resolution, a claimed peak brightness of 1700 ANSI lumens, and a stated 200,000:1 contrast ratio (with Sony’s dynamic Advanced Iris 3). Its HDMI 2.0 inputs will accept 4K sources at up to 60 frames per second.

JVC’s 2013 launch includes, as usual, two separate lines of projectors, the Reference line and the Procision line. As before, the two ranges are essentially identical in performance, with the biggest difference being that the Reference line is sold only through professional channels and the Procision line through consumer outlets. We will address only the Procision lineup here.

The new Procision lineup consists of three new models: the DLA-X900R at $12,000, the DLA-X700R at $8000, and the DLA-X500R at $5000. The DLA-X35 from last year remains in the line unchanged at $3500.

Bad pun. The Kordz Neo-S3 has nothing to do with cancelling your TV cable service for wirelessly streaming your programs from the Internet. Rather, it involves 4K and ultra long HDMI cables, as might be found in many custom installations. It consists of a pair of powered HDMI dongles ($349) to which you attach your existing HDMI link, one at each end. It’s said to allow for an HDMI run of up to 30 meters, even in 4K. Kordz also offers HDMI cables, though the HDMI cable is not included with the Neo-S, just the dongles. Available in October.

Custom installations aren’t all about audio and video hardware, and the field in recent years has expanded into peripheral areas such as custom window blinds of various sorts—from decorative to blackout. The Hunter-Douglas Pirouettes shown here, available in manual and powered versions (battery or hard-wired), appear to be of the former variety, though when closed (they’re shown open here) they’ll dim (but not darken) the room.

If you’re angling for a ceiling installation, but are put easy adjustability in roll, yaw, and tilt—everything but left-right; it’s up to you to insure that the projector's lens is centered on the screen.

Epson’s new lineup of projectors is topped off by its PowerLite Pro Cinema 6030UB ($3500, mid-October), shown here on the left, offering both 2D and 3D. On the right is the company’s Ultra-Bright PowerLite Pro Cinema G6900WU. The latter ($7500, 2D only),available now exclusively through CEDIA and specialty dealers) is said to offer a brightness of 6000 lumens. The projectors were shown on static display in today’s Media Preview. Epson’s demos will commence tomorrow when CEDIA formally opens. More about those demos later in the show; check this space.

I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore. Follow the yellow brick road. And your little dog, too! I’m melting! Ding dong the witch is dead. Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain. Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!

The Wizard of Oz has likely contributed as much to the American lexicon as anything prior to Star Trek. (Just kidding— though “I’m giving ‘er all she’s got, Capt’n, He’s dead, Jim, Engage, Fascinating, Make it so, and I’m a doctor, not a bricklayer” do have their loyal fans.) The movie wasn’t a huge hit when it first opened in 1939, but it made up for it years later, particularly starting in the 1950s when it became an annual TV event.
