2019 seems to be an interesting year with projectors coming our way. nothing concrete as yet but I am getting a bit of here say/ scuttle butt what will be 3rd hand info 

 

in any case with IFA in germany in 2 weeks and Cedia in september coming up what do we have so far ?

This from EPSON regarding IFA and CEDIA: 

"One more highlight on the booth is a demonstration of the newest developments in Epson's 3LCD-projection technology."

So it looks like there's something new from the EPSON camp... smile.gif

 

JVC 

 

Arrowav has also shared an image of a new JVC vs the current Z1 beast

and jvc has a teaser video of it saying its coming cedia 2018

 

some conjecture it will have the beautiful all glass monester lens fo the Z1... whatever this new beast is :) some conjecture it is the 8k eshift version used on simulation side JVC does. some will remember JVC developed this with NHK engineers for displaying 8k with their broadcasts. so possible its a model above the z1 in sony 5000es territory. or could it also be an in-between model to bridge the huge chasm that exists between the 9900 and z1 consumer projectors ? 

 

conflicting info on the current range lower rung JVC

I've just had a round of info flow through this morning from my local JVC contacts. What I'm hearing is as expected, native 4K and still lamp based for the 4 & 5 series. However the 6 series series will feature e-shift 8K and could be laser driven, wasn't a certainty. 

 

Oz also suggests there wont be a Z2 or anything and thats been scrapped. there is general all around concern on drop in native contrast with any changes with new JVCs time will tell I guess when if we have something more concrete :)


SONY

also from ozHDHT on sony,

Spoke to my contact at Sony today to see if I could add to what I've learned from JVC about what will be coming to IFA. Sony will have a model VW870 as a next step from the VW760. Word is better lens and also some lens options plus dual laser and finally a dynamic iris (could be dimming I think even). It's a pretty big jump towards RS4500 cost territory (exact price point in fact), not a true $20-$25K VW1100 price point replacement. Will be very interesting to see how it compares to the 4500.

 

which would be great news ! its about time they rolled back out that gorgeous ARC-F lens last used on the 1000/1100ES. anyways lets see it could be in the bridge between the 760es and jvc Z1 as has been stated.

 

anyways thats all I can find around the traps, anyone with anything else including on the other brands eg benq post it here,

 

I'm sitting pretty and very happy with what I have but I do tend to refresh every 3 years or so ... so never know if some tasty morsel comes along :D

From Nigel  ...ARROW-AV :)

 

 

 

New SONY and JVC Projectors | IFA & CEDIA – FURTHER UPDATE

 

Here’s the latest up to date information with respect to new projectors to be launched at IFA and CEDIA:

 

SONY:

  • SONY 870ES: New 4K laser projector to sit above the 760ES. RRP £35,000.

 

DUAL Laser with (finally) a proper dynamic iris and significantly higher contrast performance.  

 

JVC:

  • New native 4K lamp-based projector range to replace existing eShift lamp-based projector range which is to be discontinued; wherein, the new flagship X9900/RS640 replacement will be eShift 8K.

 

There is a possibility, but yet to be confirmed, an eShift lamp-based projector might be retained at a lower new entry level price point.

 

  • HDR10+ support to be added to existing JVC Z1

 

Please kindly note that this is the indicative information so is yet to be definitively confirmed. I will provide the full details live from IFA

 

 

Again From Nigel ..........on the NEW mystery projector ( From JVC Teaser Video) Chassis size..

 

I am thinking it's actually significantly smaller as compared with the JVC RS4500/Z1 and relates to the new chassis and housing with respect to the native 4K lamp-based projector range that will be replacing the existing 4,5,6 / X5, X7, X9 series eShift projectors range; which has been designed to compliment the design of the JVC RS4500/Z1...

Hopefully the pricing  of the new PJ's will be  within reach of those that aspire to owning them.  I cant imagine JVC pricing  their bulb based native 4K panel projectors to be uncompetitive  against Sony's offerings , so it will be very interesting indeed.

that is a concern indeed, I hope they dont blow pricing out the park ! though i suspect a miracle if they manage to keep within current pricing. 

 

the other concern people have is impact on contrast which is a big consideration for many buying into jvc, 

 

with sony i am a bit suprised with the pricing of the 870es ...35k GBP ? really ? though the 5000es does retail at 50k GBP though perhaps he is right. that just seems way way off from where the 1000ES/1100ES retailed at which was more like 17k GBP or locally here in the $35k mark but who knows could be some vagaries of UK pricing ?

 

I also look forward to what epson brings to replace their 9300 bulb and 11500 laser models that have a good following just needs a full bandwidth chip. similarly benq has a great following there were just a few things a bit scratchy in their line up so hopefully they are coming up with some refreshes too.

 

All hopefully making for some good options for people looking to buy PJs in 2019  :)

I think JVC RRP pricing  for 4K panels won’t be too far off current RRP , but they won’t be discounting  to the same extent as they  are at the moment.  That way they can keep up demand  for new PJ’s without burning existing owners. 

 

As far a Sony goes, I can’t quite fathom the  pricing for their premium projectors but since they have been able to sustain strong demand,  they seem to know the market.  The actual  760ES street prices in Australia are close to the best in the world when I last checked and hopefully the 870ES will have the same advantage for Australian buyers. However, knowing Sony , introducing a high output , dual laser pj with premium lens  ( and sophisticated video processing options) will make them want to price it higher than the Z1.

 

its a long way off yet and I wouldn’t presume to prejudge  how the new Sony will look.  But  dual laser could help them achieve better BT 2020 coverage without light loss ,  which would make it pretty versatile in terms of installation options

The 870ES is aimed "Directly" at the JVC Z1, ..... Pricing in the UK for the Z1 is also 35k GBP ...hence the Sony pricing.:)

ah I see... that makes sense. we must be getting the z1 here at an awesome bargain then at $35-39k AUD :)

 

but then I think the pricing on rest of JVCs are also pretty sharp here :)

My goodness, how do you fit $60K AUD worth of electronics and optics into something the size of a couple of shoeboxes?

I guess this will also mean an end  to the  Z1 vs 760ES comparisons  🙄
