4K-resolution D-ILA Projector
- Equipped with new 0.69-in 4K D-ILA devices
- Newly developed digital driver LSI for native 4K device
- 65 mm-diameter high-resolution all-glass lens
- 1,800 lm Light Output
- 40,000:1 Native Contrast Ratio
- 400,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
- Supports High Dynamic Range (HDR10,HLG) content
High-quality, Clear Picture with Brightness
Maximum brightness of 2,200 lm*2 can be achieved by combining a 265 W ultra high-pressure mercury lamp and a highly efficient optical engine. Also, combining with the D-ILA device that features a narrow gap between pixels for optimum use of light, a powerful yet finely detailed and smooth image projection can be achieved.
*2:Achieved on the DLA-NX9. 1,900 lm for the DLA-N7 and 1,800 lm for the DLA-N5.
Realizing Images Full of Presence with D-ILA’s High Contrast
JVC’s original D-ILA device combined with an optical engine equipped with a wire grid results in a high native contrast ratio of 100,000:1*3. Input signals are analysed with an original algorithm that is combined with Intelligent Lens Aperture, which automatically controls the black level of the image to achieve a dynamic contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1*3. The synergetic effect based on the dynamic range stemming from high-brightness, delivers sensational 4K video full of reality.
*3:Figures for the DLA-NX9. The DLA-N7 offers 80,000:1 native contrast ratio and 800,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio; the DLA-N5 offers 40,000:1 native contrast ratio and 400,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio.
Support for HDR (High Dynamic Range)
HDR (high dynamic range) content contains more data including an extended brightness range, 10-bit gradation and a wide BT.2020 colour gamut. For this reason, high basic performance is required for precise reproduction by the projector. With D-ILA projectors, HDR content are optimally reproduced with “high-brightness, high contrast, and wide gamut” to enjoy high quality HDR content as you’ve never experienced in the past. Moreover, in addition to HDR10 content, which is found on UHD Blu-ray Discs, the projector automatically detects the Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) signal, a technology used widely in broadcasting, allowing the user to view in an optimum picture mode.
Automatic Adjustment with Auto Tone Mapping*5
The Auto Tone Mapping function featured on the latest models automatically adjusts each content based on the values in the mastering data, such as Max CLL and Max FALL*6, which indicate the brightness of the HDR content. Image quality is automatically adjusted for optimal viewing of various HDR images with different brightness.
- *5:Content without mastering info is set at fixed level or can be adjusted manually.
- *6:Max CLL (stands for Maximum Content Light Level); Max FALL (stands for Maximum Frame Average Light Level)
Complies with the HDCP 2.2 standards to enable 18Gbps 4K signal input
The projectors are capable of receiving full spec 4K signals including 4K/60P 4:4:4, 4K/60P 4:2:2/36-bit and 4K/24P 4:4:4/36-bit as the units comply with the latest HDMI standard with 18 Gbps transmission band-width compatibility for reproducing more vivid colours with more precise gradation. In order to be compatible with copyright-protected content such as OTT video services and the UHD Blu-ray discs, the projectors comply with the latest HDMI standard and HDCP 2.2.
