JVC's LCoS-based HD-ILA technology has always provided seamless, natural images that belied their digital origins. We're talking three-chips, high fill factor and full 1080p resolution. HD-ILA's single drawback has always been high-ish black levels that rob the set of snap and contrast, especially with movies. And with this new generation of sets JVC is employing a dynamic iris system to deepen the blacks and get that contrast ratio. Tune in to HT's February 2007 issue to see how this JVC handles its business in our RPTV Face-Off!
