JVC has announced a new D-ILA projector, offering 4k 120Hz support and HDR10+ compatibility. The Precision Series DLA-NP5/Reference Series DLA-RS1100 is a lamp light source design and completes the JVC projector lineup for 2022, which also includes the recently introduced BLU-Escent Precision Series DLA-NZ9, DLA-NZ8, and DLA-NZ7, and the Reference Series DLA-RS4100, DLA-RS3100, and the DLA-RS2100.

Key features of the ISF certified projector include dual 48Gbps HDMI inputs, with a high speed LSI for 4k 120fps sources. The DLA-NP5/ DLA-RS1100 is equipped with a 0.69-inch native 4k D-ILA device, as found higher up the JVC range, and 65mm diameter all-glass lens, with 17 elements in 15 groups, for high resolution imagery to the periphery of the screen.

Brightness is rated at 1,900 lumen brightness, using a 265W ultra-high pressure mercury lamp, with a native contrast of 40,000:1.

The projector also uses JVC’s Frame Adapt HDR and Theater Optimizer technology. Frame Adapt HDR performs dynamic tone mapping (either frame by frame, or scene by scene), based on analysis of HDR10 content, while Theater Optimizer automatically performs optimal tone mapping according to the installation environment.

HDR10+ provides dynamic tone mapping with a wide range of streaming content and select 4K UHD Discs. It joins support for HLG. The models have 48Gbps HDMI connectivity, with HDCP 2.3 content protection.

18-bit level gamma processing is used to smooth tonal gradations between bright areas and dark areas.

Additional niceties include Clear Motion Drive image blur reduction technology, now said to be smoother and offer greater accuracy by analyzing more frames of video than before. It works in conjunction with Motion Enhance, which optimizes the drive of the D-ILA device according to the movement of the image.

Installation is aided by an Installation Settings function that allows up to 10 types of installation adjustments to be saved and easily recalled. These include lens memory, pixel adjustment, and screen masking. Screen size and gain, and aspect ratios can also be set. Operating noise is said to be 24dB. 

The DLA-NP5/DLA-RS1100 retails for £7.500.
