JVC PROFESSIONAL has just announced the availability of the DLA-HX1U projector. The latest JVC three-chip D-ILA® projector delivers high resolution (1400 x 788) with a native 16:9 aspect ratio for a high definition (HD) home theater experience.
Using three reflective 1.1-megapixel WXGA-PLUS 16:9 Direct Drive Image Light Amplifier (D-ILA) chips gives the DLA-HX1U superior color reproduction, better gradation and smoother images over its single-chip counterparts. Three-chip D-ILA projectors use three separate RGB panels inside the unit to continuously produce full-resolution color images, unlike a single chip projector which alternatively displays red, green and blue images and relies on the human brain to integrate them into the color picture. JVC claims their D-ILA three-chip projector features color reproduction and is free of flicker and rainbow effects.
JVC’s reflective D-ILA technology provides tighter, more closely spaced pixels that provide a higher aperture ratio. Since the gaps between pixels are not noticeable, the picture is smooth and offers both film-like resolution and accurate reproduction of natural colors. Unlike transmissive liquid crystal technologies, D-ILA projects cinema-quality images that are free of any visible pixel grid or screen door effect.
The DVI-D Plug and Play interface provides direct-digital input with HDCP providing compatibility with set top boxes and advanced digital players. According to JVC, coupled with the DLA-HX1U's native 16:9 aspect ratio with high resolution (1400 x 788'1.1M pixels), users can enjoy high-quality HD and DVD image reproduction without degradation. An optical engine and AG circuitry produce rich natural colors with better gradations and intermediate tones for a smooth, lifelike appearance.
JVC's Digital Image Scaling Technology (DIST) enhancer provides sophisticated de-interlacing and scaling algorithms for high-resolution reproduction of HDTV or DVD images. The DLA-HX1U accepts analog signals including 720p, 1080i, 1080/24sF~30sF and HDTV formats for compatibility with DTV / HDTV signals. The DLA-HX1U offers discreet IR codes and separate on / off remote control commands allowing it to work seamlessly with multi-component control systems.
The DLA-HX1U will be available in October 2003 exclusively through home theater distributors and custom installers. Suggested list price is $11,995.
