JVC’s 4K Triumph
by Dick Tan
JVC, long known among videophiles for its superlative range of E-Shift 4K home theatre projectors, will be introducing to the specialist AV media its first native 4K resolution projector, the DLA-Z1 at the Audio Visual Designs showroom this coming Thursday, 29 December 2016.
According to JVC, the DLA-Z1 which employs the world’s smallest (O.69″ diagonal) native 4K device to achieve a 4096 x 2160 resolution also features for the first time, a proprietary ‘Blu-Escent’ laser phosphor light engine, instead of the traditional lamp used in previous JVC projectors.
Steven Woo of Klingen & Erlesen Sdn Bhd, distributor of JVC projectors in Malaysia says, “The use of our specially developed Laser Phosphor Light engine enables the DLA-Z1 to harness onto a powerful, self switching light source, that unlike traditional lamps, will remain linear throughout its entire lifespan of 20,000 hours, delivering a consistent level of visual performance not possible with traditional lamps.” Light output is claimed at 3,000 lumens, almost twice as powerful as JVC’s current range of lamp based models.
Set to retail at RM129,000 the DLA-Z1 is said to be the first THX certified true 4K projector that features HDR (High Dynamic Range) compatibility with fully adjustable Hybrid Log-Gamma and the industry standard SMPTE 2086 4K colour scale.
JVC projectors, long appreciated by big screen videophiles for their ability to produce true blacks for outstanding contrast ratio performance is taken to new extremes with the DLA-Z1, claiming a contrast ratio performance that is literally immeasurable, from 1:Infinity.
As befits its flagship status the DLA-Z1 also features full coverage of true 4K DCI-P3 colour system and up to 80% of the BT-2020 standard used for HDR systems.
It is also 3D and 2.35.1 CinemaScope projection compatible.
