Chances are when you’re thinking about the latest and greatest in home theater gear, you’re not thinking about JVC. They’re not exactly known for high end items, but that’s not stopping JVC from releasing a 4K2K projector in Japan.
A pair of new projectors has been announced by Cineversum as follow-ups to the Blackwing One. Like their predecessor – which got a price hike at the beginning of this year – they feature 3-chip LCoS technology. They’re capable of a picture up to 1808p and can adapt to cinema style twenty-four frames per second as well as the fifty and sixty FPS television standards.
Planar, through its Runco brand, has announced the availability of a pair of lampless LED projectors. After showing the projectors back at CEDIA, Planar says that they received a tremendous response from dealers, as well as hundreds of orders. The new projectors, known as the Q-750i and Q-750d, completely eliminate the lamp thanks to full LED integration.
It seems like only yesterday that local cinemas were starting to introduce 2K and 4K projectors into their largest theaters and already Epson has announced that they’ve created the first 4K HTPS TFT liquid crystal panel. The projector, according to a press release from Epson, will be optimized by a newly developed method which promises high brightness, high contrast and of course, high resolution.
Just months after a similar announcement from AMC, Hollywood Theaters has made a deal with Sony to get on the digital conversion train. At thirteen U.S. locations, a total of 167 screens will be equipped with Sony 4K projectors. In addition to the 4K projectors being installed will be a total of 53 projectors capable of 3D projection with RealD 3D support.
