JVC unveils a half-dozen new projectors


JVC has announced six new projectors at CEDIA, each one sporting a 120Hz refresh rate and 4 of them THX-certified. The new models are the DLA-HD550, DLA-HD950, DLA-HD950, DLA-RS15, DLA-RS25, and DLA-RS35. The HD-series are focused on the consumer market, while the RS series will be marketed by JVC's professional electronics group.

The HD550 and RS15 are the lower-end models, sporting 30,000:1 and 32,000:1 contrast ratios respectively. They use a 0.7-inch D-ILA imager and a motorized lens with +/-80-percent vertical and +/-34-percent horizontal shift, and feature a Silicon Optix HQV Reon-VX video processor.

The other 4 models feature the same imager, lens, and video processor, but sport 50,000:1 (for the HD950 and RS25) and 70,000:1 (for the HD990 and RS35) contrast ratios, and are THX-certified. They also feature ISF C3 modes for professional calibration, with individual RGBCMY color adjustments.

All 6 new projectors ship later this month, with prices ranging from $5,000 for the HD550 to $10,000 for the RS35 and HD990.
