JVC DILA Projectors


4K Precision

4K shatters the high definition barrier, taking two-million pixel 1080p HD images and up converts them to eight-million pixel 4K images. That's four times the resolution of Full HD!

Earlier this year, NHK and JVC engineers jointly developed a Super Hi-Vision projection system that utilizes e-Shift technology. Now, this proprietary technology is available in both the DLA-X70R and the flagship DLA-X90R, delivering 3,840 x 2,160 resolution from any compatible 2D input signal.

Full 4K Precision uses an e-Shift device that doubles the horizontal and vertical resolution, eliminating any visible stair-stepping and pixel gaps. This resolution is equal to four traditional 1080p Full HD images in a single frame. The result is increased image clarity and detail at any viewing distance, with especially impressive performance at close distances. Once you've experienced the 4K revolution in resolution, you'll never look at high definition the same.

Three Chip D-ILA

D-ILA (Direct Drive Image Light Amplifier) was invented by JVC, and introduced in 1998. Through constant refinement and development, it has become the ultimate display technology for high-end, high definition home theater. D-ILA is a proprietary form of Liquid Crystal on Silicon. Because it is reflective, D-ILA is highly efficient, offering excellent brightness for today's most demanding sources, including 3D.

For a true cinema experience, a darkened room is best-but with the proper screen, it's no longer mandatory. The combination of our latest generation optical engine, new 220W Ultra High Pressure lamp and the highly reflective surface of the D-ILA device provide a remarkable picture with ample contrast even in a room with ambient light.

JVC's exclusive 3-Chip D-ILA light engine provides the highest resolution and the best picture detail. Improved pixel alignment with negligible space between pixels insures the greatest contrast and the highest light efficiency. JVC's unique polarized wire grid system further improves contrast and reduces light leakage.

D-ILA projectors are characterized by natural pixel-free film-like images with smooth gray scales and rich, highly accurate colors, thanks to tightly-spaced pixels and liquid crystal blending. What's more, D-ILA chips have no spatial dithering that causes noise in the low black levels.

Native Contrast

Contrast ratio - a specification that describes a device's ability to reproduce deep blacks and bright whites - is widely recognized as a key performance parameter for home theater display products. At JVC, we measure our Procision projectors' "native" contrast ratio - the intrinsic ability of the projector to show the complete range of image contrast simultaneously, without the use of a dynamic iris to artificially inflate contrast specifications.

For years, JVC has led the industry with projectors that produce the highest native contrast ratio. As a result, D-ILA Procision projectors reproduce the deepest blacks as well as vivid peak whites at the same time, for the most impactful images. JVC's Procision Series projectors are built around a newly designed optical engine that produces brighter images with even higher contrast than previous models. An upgraded wire-grid polarizer reduces stray light caused by reflections and helps increase the native contrast ratio even further. The DLA-X90R achieves a stunning 120,000:1 native contrast ratio - an industry first.

3D Enabled

JVC has a long history of innovation in 3D. Today, JVC studio monitors that are used in movie production, and broadcast quality JVC processors are the defacto standard for advanced 2D-3D conversion.

All JVC Procision X-Series models are 3D enabled. JVC uses a Frame Sequential Method that provides a full 1920 x 1080 pixels to each eye without crosstalk and flicker. Images are so realistic and so natural-looking that it's like being pulled into the scene. With the frame sequential method, separate left-eye and right-eye images are alternated and require active shutter glasses to perceive the image correctly. Two pairs of glasses and an infrared (IR) emitter are included with the DLA-X90R. They are optional with the DLA-X70R and DLA-X30.

For best connection to a 3D source, all Procision X-Series models are equipped with an HDMI v1.4a input.

3D is an immersive experience. To truly appreciate it, a large screen is required. JVC D-ILA Procision projectors are the best way to enjoy 3D without compromise. These projectors make it possible to enjoy 3D with an engaging cinematic size that even the largest flat panel TV just can't match. JVC Procision projectors deliver a 3D experience that far exceeds what a movie theater can offer.

3D Improvements

The DLA-X30/DLA-X70R and DLA-X90R Procision projectors feature a wide range of 3D enhancements, including improved 3D picture quality and improved 3D functionality.

Improved 3D Performance
  • Improved driver for increased brightness and reduced cross talk
  • Cross Talk Cancelation
  • Parallax Adjustment
  • Depth Adjustment

    Control depth and pop-up of 3D images
  • Full frame addressing for the highest 3D brightness: JVC creates the image as a full frame, rather than creating the image line by line. This provides a brighter image-by addressing all of the pixels at the same time-which is especially beneficial in 3D mode.

Frame Addressing
Image overlapping (crosstalk) is reduced because the shutter on 3D glasses can be left open longer as the method draws each frame of the picture individually.

Line Addressing
Crosstalk can be generated when shutters are switched between the left and right eyes, and opened only for a short amount time. This can cause the picture to darken and lose brightness.

2D/3D Conversion

  • Uses technology derived from our $30,000 JVC Broadcast 2D to 3D processor
  • Includes user adjustments for 3D depth and sub-title geometry correction

Anamorphic Scaling for 3D

  • For 2012, Vertical Stretch Scaling is available in both 2D and 3D modes

  • IR Signal reflects off the screen and triggers the glasses
  • 3 meter cable
  • Range: ~30 feet round trip
Lens Design

All JVC Procision projectors use a premium lens that offers both the highest resolution and the easiest installation.

Many home theaters have obstructions or other installation challenges. With a 100" wide screen, a 2X Zoom makes it possible to set up the projector as close as 11 feet or as far away as 23 feet. The ±80% vertical and ±34% horizontal lens shift enables far more flexibility in setting up the projector, as it allows the projected picture to be easily moved horizontally or vertically. As a result, the projector does not need to be perfectly centered with the screen. Motorized control of the zoom, focus and lens shift permits adjustment from the remote for easiest operation.

The DLA-X90R and DLA-X70R projectors feature a motorized lens cover that opens and closes in synchronization with power on/off to protect against dust. Even if the projector is installed on the ceiling, you are assured of easy, trouble-free operation via the remote control.

ISF Calibration

The Procision models DLA-X90R and DLA-X7OR are licensed with the ISF C 3 (Certified Calibration Controls) mode, enabling trained professionals to calibrate the projector to specific screen surfaces, lighting environments and video sources. These precise settings are then stored in the projector to ensure reproduction of film or video content faithful to the source with excellent picture quality in all viewing situations.

THX Calibration

The Procision models DLA-X90R and DLA-X70R offer THX® 3D Display Certification. During the THX 3D certification process, more than 400 laboratory tests are conducted, evaluating color accuracy, cross-talk, viewing angles and video processing to ensure the high quality 3D and 2D display performance that home theater enthusiasts demand.

Both models have a simple, one-button solution for optimized playback of 3D and 2D movies - simply press the THX button on the remote. THX Cinema Mode is automatically selected with 2D sources to ensure that color reproduction, luminance, blacks, gamma and video processing matches what the filmmaker intended.

THX 3D Cinema Mode is automatically selected with 3D sources, which extends this same level of accuracy for 3D. THX 3D Cinema Mode is designed to deliver highly accurate color in 3D, while minimizing sources of cross-talk and flicker. For further fine-tuning, all THX Modes can be accessed by THX Professional Calibrators.

Color Management System

The Procision models DLA-X90R and DLA-X70R feature an improved 7-Axis Color Management System. In addition to the ordinary 6-axis matrix of red, green, blue, cyan, magenta and yellow, a seventh matrix for orange is included. The CMS provides for precise adjustment of hue, saturation and brightness for each color to allow accurate calibration of the projector's color gamut.

The addition of the orange axis also helps pinpoint the color spectrum for skin tones. For improved operability, only the color being adjusted is shown on the screen while the others are displayed in black and white. Additionally, up to three customized color settings can be stored for specific applications.

Advanced Convergence Adjustment

The DLA-X90R and DLA-X70R are precision display devices with excellent alignment of the imaging devices as they ship from the factory. For the ultimate in precision alignment, installers and advanced hobbyists can now utilize a new advanced convergence adjustment that can be applied in increments of 1/16th of a pixel to any of 121 different zones across the screen.
