We were pretty awed by JVC’s 4K projector the company showed off at CEDIA a few years ago, and JVC recently demo’d 3D projection using two such projectors.
This week the manufacturer announced its latest high-performance 4K2K D-ILA projector, the DLA-SH7NLG, which like previous models can deliver ultra-high-resolution of about 10 megapixels (4096 x 2400, well beyond full HD 1080p of 1920 x 1080).
The company says the projector’s wire-grid optical engine helps achieve 10,000:1 native contrast for true, deep black levels, and dual 330W ultra-high-pressure mercury lamps help output a whopping 5,000 lumens of brightness (in single lamp mode).
Configuration of the DLA-SH7NLG can be stored and uploaded via a USB memory device, and the projector can be configured through a web browser.
Also notable these days is that operational flexibility includes being able to stack a couple of these 110-pound projectors to serve up 3D images. Of course, the projector does cost $150,000 plus lens and is meant more for commercial applications like museums, simulators and medical institutions—but we know there’s a certain level of affluency and video enthusiasm that desires these types of projectors, which are also available from the likes of Sony and Meridian. And some custom electronics professionals specialize in such high-power videophile theaters as well.
