Equipped with refined 0.69" native 4K D-ILA device and newly developed digital driver LSI for native 4K resolution.
D-ILA projectors continue to evolve for the better. The latest three models feature an original native 0.69" 4K D-ILA devices, which were first adopted on model DLA-Z1; this device has been improved with process refinements on planarization and reflection efficiency to achieve higher contrast and brightness. Additionally, a dedicated driver LSI was also enhanced to simultaneously drive each of the three (R/G/B) native 4K D-ILA devices at high-speed 120fps. As a result, precise and smooth image projection unique to 4K native can be achieved with the combination of a new device and new driver LSI.
Because these projectors are equipped with 4K120p input, signal latency is infinitesimal, making it effective when displaying high frame-rate gaming content on large screens. What’s more, Low Latency Mode reduces delay in displaying PC signals and games, and improves response to the users’ rapid operations.
The Frame Adapt HDR function* enables reproduction of any HDR10 content dynamically and in high-resolution!
The colour grading of HDR content varies, some HDR content are adjusted to bright side and others to the dark side. Using JVC’s original algorithm, Frame Adapt HDR instantly analyses the peak brightness in HDR10 content frame-by-frame and in real time adjusts the projector to the optimum dynamic range. What’s more, the gamma processing accuracy of gradation performance has been improved dramatically from, 12-bit to 18-bit.
All these advancements help to bring out deeper blacks in darker scenes, and higher peaks in brighter scenes without losing colours. Reproducing images with smooth gradations, that are closer to reality as seen by the human eye. (*from firmware version 3.10 and higher)
In the picture, scene 1 represents a dark scene, scene 2 a bright scene and scene 3 a combination of bright and dark.
When it comes to reproducing the rich video information of HDR content including the extended brightness range, BT.2020 wide colour gamut and 10-bit gradation, rely on one of the new D-ILA projectors. New models support all HDR formats including HDR10 for Blu-ray and streaming, HLG for broadcasting, and the latest HDR10+ signal format with dynamic metadata compatibility.
JVC projectors are compatible with the two dynamic tone mappings of HDR10+ and Frame Adapt HDR. HDR10+ contains the metadata of the producer's intentions for each scene, Frame Adapt HDR instantly analyses the peak brightness in HDR10 content using an original algorithm. Ensuring you can watch any HDR content in optimal picture quality.
The DLA-NP5 is equipped with an 17-element, 15-group all-glass lens featuring a full aluminum lens barrel. To project high resolution 4K images to every corner of the screen.
FILMMAKER MODE™ was developed by the UHD Alliance, an organization of Hollywood movie studios, TV studios, content distributors, consumer electronics manufacturers, and device developers, with the aim of faithfully reproducing the filmmakers' intentions in the home. When using this mode, picture quality adjustment functions such as frame interpolation and noise reduction are turned off, and the color temperature is set to D65 (6500K), allowing users to enjoy movies and documentaries with picture quality that is faithful to the original master.
*The feature supports software version v2.00 and later versions.
JVC’s original D-ILA device combined with an optical engine equipped with a wire grid results in a high native contrast ratio of 40,000:1. 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 400,000:1. The synergetic effect based on the dynamic range stemming from high-brightness, delivers sensational 4K video full of reality.
High-resolution image projection is reliant on the device and the optical system, which is the heart of D-ILA projection. All models are equipped with 0.69-inch 4K D-ILA device that has been drastically refined, doubling the speed required to display images from 120 Hz to 240 Hz-equivalent.
The 0.69-inch 4K D-ILA device and the optical engine employing a wire grid alone realize a native contrast of 100,000:1 on the DLA-NZ9*. But on top of that, in combination with the dynamic light source control that automatically controls the output of the laser light source by analysing the input video source, an astonishing dynamic contrast of ∞ (infinity) :1 has been achieved not only for the high-end model but for all models equipped with the BLU-Escent light source. The synergistic effect of the ultimate dynamic range created by the high luminance will allow you to experience impressive, high-quality 8K images full of reality.
* Native contrast ratio of 100,000:1 for the NZ9, 80,000:1 for the NZ8, and 40,000:1 for the NZ7.The NP5 delivers 40,000:1 native contrast ratio with 400,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio.
●Theater Optimizer for optimal reproduction of HDR content suitable to each environment.
●HDR Quantizer with New Auto (Wide) level mode
: Auto (Wide) provides brighter/more dynamic HDR images.
●Additional Frame Adapt HDR picture modes
:Allows for optimum playback with the widest variety of lighting conditions or theater environments.
Flexible installation is made possible thanks to the wide lens-shift function. As described in the diagram, wide shift ranges are offered vertically and horizontally to help deliver natural projected images without distortion.
