JVC has launched a new high frame rate projector for gaming and home cinema, the LX-NZ30, and distributor Karma-AV has them.

Suitable for use in both light controlled environments and media rooms, the JVC LX-NZ30 4K/HDR projector supports gaming at up to 1080p/240Hz and 4k DLP resolution imagery, courtesy of a 0.47-inch DMD light engine, and four-way e-shift pixel juggling. At this higher frame rate, latency is quoted at 6.25ms.

The projector uses a new high-power BLU-Escent light source, able to deliver 3,300 lumens over a maintenance free 20,000-hour lifespan. A 105W Blue Laser diode assembly replaces the 95W design used in its predecessor (the LX-NZ3), hence the 10 per cent hike in brightness and HDR management.

The LX-NZ30 is HDR and HLG source compatible, and uses Auto Tone Mapping. The laser light source controls the light output instantaneously, providing dynamic brightness adjustment with less delay compared to a conventional mechanical aperture. By controlling the output of the laser according to the brightness of the scene, black levels are said to improve.

Picture modes include Natural, Cinema and Dynamic, plus two user adjustable settings. Operating noise is rated at 34dB, or 29dB in Eco mode.

Installation is helped by horizontal and vertical lens shifting ( ± 60% vertical, ± 23% horizontal) with a 1.6X zoom. The projector placement range is variable between 299 - 478cm, when using a 100-inch screen. It weighs just 5.9kg.

Connectivity includes two HDMI Inputs (HDCP 2.2), DisplayPort 1.2a for direct connection from a suitably equipped PC, USB Direct Connect, RS232C and LAN control/12V trigger ports.

A compact design means the model measures 405 x 146 x 341 mm; it’s available in black or white finishes.

The JVC LX-NZ30 retails for £3,799, and begins shipping in April.
