JVC DLA-RS2 HD-ILA Video Projector
Introduction JVC’s new DLA-RS-2 is the company’s new flagship 1080p-resolution front projector. It is a three-panel LCoS, or what JVC calls DLA (Digital Light Amplifier), which is a reflective variant of LCD display technology. The DLA-RS2 is the step-up from last year’s DLA-RS1, which remains in the company’s projector line-up at a lower price point. However, it improves in only one area of picture performance over the RS-1 with a higher contrast ratio, due mainly to better blacks. While the new projector adds some cool new features, it actually goes backwards in two key areas of performance. Higher contrast ratio on the RS-2 translates into a net loss of nearly 20 percent in light output from the RS-1, which was already marginal in this area. The new projector is conservatively rated at 600 ANSI lumens of light output, which means it ...

JVC Procision LT-47X898 LCD HDTV
The Basics: JVC’s Procision line represents the company’s highest-end offerings in both the TV and projector markets. These products were developed for the custom-installation and high-end consumer channels, and they feature JVC’s most advanced technologies. First and foremost, in the case of this 47-inch 1080p model, is the inclusion of Clear Motion Drive II 120Hz technology, which doubles the TV’s frame rate from 60 to 120Hz to reduce motion blur. The TV also uses JVC’s 32-bit Genessa processing chip and a 10-bit panel, and features a number of advanced picture controls.  The Theater Pro II menu offers advanced color, detail, noise-reduction and gamma controls. The energy-saver control is actually an adjustable backlight. Smart Picture adjusts the image’s brightness, based on the average picture level of the content, while the Smart Sensor adjusts the image’s brightness based on your room’s lighting conditions. ...

JVC HD-65S998 HD-ILA HDTV
The Basics: We’re not sure if JVC plans to add any new models to their line of HD-ILA rear-projection televisions, which are based on LCOS technology, so the HD-65S998 and its little brother, the 58-inch HD-58S998, could represent your last chance to get a big-screen JVC RPTV. This 65-inch, 1080p model includes a number of advanced features and technologies, including JVC’s 32-bit Genessa processing chip with Digital Image Scaling Technology and a five-point color management system. The TV uses three native 1080p D-ILA devices and a new optical engine designed to reduce cabinet depth and improve image contrast. The company’s “HD Range 150 MHz Digital Super Detail” is a focusing technology designed minimized motion blur and thus improve detail in faster-moving scenes. This rear-pro has an adjustable iris to lower the light output, and Smart Picture adjusts the image’s brightness based ...

title: John Landis On The Sound Of "An American Werewolf In London" category: Feature Article review date: October 2001 reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein John Landis On The Sound Of "An American Werewolf In London" "An American Werewolf in London" broke all kinds of conventions when it was released theatrically in 1981 – it had makeup effects so good that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences had to instate a new category to honor it and it forever changed the way comedy and horror were allowed to combine onscreen. The collector’s edition DVD issued as "Werewolf" turns 20 continues the movie’s unconventional bent. It’s one of the few films to have its director/writer – John Landis – actively involved in the full sound remix and it’s also one of the few films originally made in mono sound that actually sounds better (not just broader) when adapted for the new 5.1 technology.

JVC LT-42X788 LCD HDTV
Introduction It’s time to buy a new HDTV and, after much deliberation, you’ve decided on a 42-inch flat panel. Little did you realize that your decision would inspire so many new questions. Needless to say, there are a few flat-panel models to choose from in the 42-inch category. As you walk that crowded retail floor, I want you to stop for a minute, take a good long look at yourself in that reflective plasma screen or glossy LCD frame, and ask yourself this: Do I really need 1080p in my new 42-inch TV? It’s an important question, one that will ultimately dictate how much you spend on the TV. Choosing 1080p over 720p can add from $500 to $1,000 to the bottom line; yet, purely from a resolution standpoint, 1080p’s benefits in a 42-inch or smaller panel are questionable. At an average seating distance, you probably won’t be able to see the extra resolution compared ...
