A bit of background, I have owned a few projectors, a couple of epson LCD projectors over the years and then the last few years been very happy with a JVC X-35 projector. So Ultra UHD is on our door step ... of course as I am very enthusiastic about these things what should I do ? The obvious would be one of the new Sony 4K projectors...but then have seen the flagship sony 1100ES that retails at over $25k being humbled by my few generations old base model jvc. and even the cheapest 4K sony is some $15k !!!! way more than what I would want to spend and then to top off I find all the sony models in some way or the other dont fully support the new UHD format with either lacking HDR (high dynamic range) or lacking support for the DCI p3 wider gamut that the new format will support. And then I find out JVC has a new range...something that has been 2 years in the making.... http://cdn.jvc.eu/dla-x9000/index.html And unlike the Sony's it built for UHD, utilising a new 4K E-shift 4, and is HDR and wider gamut p3 DCI capable. But hey is it true 4k? The shift for jvcs has always been a 1080p panel that they shift really fast diagonaly to essentially upscale. However according to the jvc info the new 4k e-shift 4 is an evolution of this that takes a 4k signal splits into two frames diagonally and utilises a half pixel diagonal shift with the 1080p panel to create a 4k frame. Something JVC gives a brief explanation of, http://cdn.jvc.eu/dla-x9000/feature01.html Now I am pretty skeptical, though apparently a technology co developed by JVC and japans NHK engineers, that had them develop a 8k projector http://www.pmaresearch.com/pma-blogs/jvc-announces-8k-resolution-projector-with-e-shift-technology/ so a trickle down for 4k consumer projector cant be too much of a stretch hey ? Anyways 4k is beyond Imax and I have no intention of putting in a setup of greater scale than imax so not really chasing 4k. My interest is the other aspects of UHD with HDR and wider gamut and if I get any gains in resolution than what we have ...i'll happily take it with local pricing placing the base model X5000 at $6,160, mid range model X7000 at $8,800 and top model X9000 on $10,450 (not including 3D glasses..but fortunately I already have them from my previous JVC) So as it happens...before I know it ...it turns out I am the first person in the country ordering one of these JVCs ! I go for the piggy in the middle. since the base model uses the previous generation light engine, doesnt quite cover the p3 wide gamut and also quite a bit down on contrast vs the previous years models. And the top model is really only the mid range model with some hand picked parts......so the x7000 model it is for me And I am then one of the first in the world to be receiving one of these black boxes ... on my birthday ! and posting an unboxing...
Good to see JVC release a new range at IFA to support HDR and with hdcp 2.2 compliance, though they are still using the "wobbulation" eshift to support 4K rather than natively, http://www.ecinews.eu/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2638:jvc-home-cinema-projectors-at-ifa-2015&catid=20&Itemid=300701 " Kenwood-owned JVC announces three home cinema projectors just in time for IFA 2015-- the DLA-X9000, DLA-X7000, and DLA-X5000, all featuring e-shift4 upscaling technology and a 265W high power lamp. An updated D-ILA chip (the JVC take on LCD technology) promises what the company claims is "highest brightness in class" and "industry leading contrast ratio," with the flagship X9000 pushing 1900 lumens brightness at a native contrast ratio of 15000:1. The projectors feature HDCP 2.2 compliant HDMI 2.0 inputs with support for HDR content, while e-shift4 boosts clarity through a "Mutiple Pixel Control" Super Resolution algorithm. As JVC puts it, through Auto Mode â€œnatural and expressive 4K images can be enjoyed without any complicated picture adjustments.â€ Motion blur reduction is also included via Motion Enhance. The DLA-X9000, DLA-X7000 and DLA-X5000 hit the market from November 2015. JVC also offers 3D accessories as optional extras."
