JVC DLA-Z1 is still available - special order only

Recommended Posts

Well after doing a bit of digging around, after hearing  that the yanks were still getting the Z1, I asked JVC kenwood here in oz if the Z1 was really finished or if this was some internal decision at JVC to sort of delete it in Australia. Turns out it's still being made. I have a few clients looking at this model. This machine is probably the best projector under 500K only 2nd to that new christie projector.

 

The lead  time is about 2-3 months for a brand new Z1 and JVC kenwood are firm on no cancellation of orders once placed.

JVC's flagship 4K projector DLA-Z1 features original cutting-edge technologies for high-quality, high-definition images to realise the full potential of 4K. It also supports next-gen technologies such as HDR (high dynamic range) content and video at 4K resolution. Beautiful picture quality with a powerful lifelike sense of realism can be enjoyed for all types of video content, from movies to sports, music and documentaries, even 3D. Wrapped in a stylish physical design that features simple lines to emphasise functionality and symmetrical design to focus around the centrally positioned high-resolution lens, the weight and form of the projector befit a flagship 4K model.

The Newly developed 0.69” native 4K D-ILA device

The newly developed D-ILA device, with a pixel pitch of 3.8 μm, occupies an area that is 31% smaller compared to previous devices*2. The native 4K device for projection is the smallest in the world at 0.69”, and allows the projector to achieve a high-definition display at 4K resolution (4096 × 2160 pixels). Furthermore, vertical orientation and planarization technologies reduce defects such as light scattering and diffraction, enhancing contrast. The result is a smooth, high-definition image free of visible pixelation, even when projecting on large screens.

High brightness level and long life with the BLU-Escent laser light source

The projector’s light source is based on JVC’s proprietary BLU-Escent laser projection technology, which uses blue laser diodes to offer both a brightness level of 3,000 lm and 20,000 hours of operational life. Improvements in brightness allow for a beautiful image on large screens. Moreover, the massive increase in peak brightness, when projecting HDR and dynamic control of laser output according to the brightness of the image, work together to create a contrast ratio of ∞:1, creating a stunning home theatre experience that expresses a greater range than ever before.

Support for the next-generation high-image-quality technology, HDR (high dynamic range)

HDR (high dynamic range) content, such as that available on UHD Blu-ray Discs, offers an extended brightness range, 10-bit gradation and a wide BT.2020 colour gamut. With its high contrast ratio, 80% BT.2020 coverage, dynamic light source control, and a peak brightness of 3,000 lm, the projector offers optimal reproduction of HDR content. Moreover, in addition to HDR picture modes that are easy to set up when viewing HDR content, the projector also offers support for Hybrid Log-Gamma, a new technology that is expected to be used widely in future broadcasting.

The latest 4K-capable, high-resolution lens

New_Lens_image.png

In conjunction with the new 4K D-ILA device, a new 18-element, 16-group all-glass lens with a full aluminium lens barrel was also designed. A new 100 mm diameter lens is used to project 4K-resolution images to every corner of the screen. This compares to the 65 mm diameter used in other projectors*1.
The new lens offers an expanded lens shift of ±100% vertically and ±43% horizontally*2. In addition, by adopting five ED lenses that take into account differences in R/G/B refractive index, the projector is able to reduce chromatic aberration and colour fringing to deliver a precise reproduction of 4K-resolution images.

Reproduction of vivid images through a wide range of colours

Through use of its laser light source and a new cinema filter, the projector achieves 100% coverage of the DCI-P3 display range used in film production. The unit furthermore achieves a minimum 80% coverage of the BT.2020 colour range, used for UHD Blu-ray Discs and 4K and 8K broadcasting. These technologies allow for more accurate reproduction of the natural gradations in images of the sky and the sea, which has presented difficulties in the past. Also improved are differences in the colour contrast between subjects such as flowers of a deep crimson or rose colour, or the different shades of green on tree leaves.

Still the BEST performing projecter ( by a substantial margin ) i have had the pleasure of owning .

It produces the best image of ANY projector i have owned or demo'd in my theatre......and i have had a few..😁

 

Great to hear its still available..:)

Indeed. Would it be possible to get some photos of the shelf/mount you welded up? Be good to show folks what they need to do. No peerless mount is going to hold this one at 45KG.
