JVC to Show Next-Gen 'Ultra HD' Projector

JVC said its newly developed projector that boasts 4,000 scanning lines to help produce so-called "Ultra High Definition" images will be on display at the NHK Open House in Tokyo this weekend (May 21–24).

For each RGB color, JVC says the projector uses three units of its proprietary "D-ILA" reflective LCD panel, which was released last year and displays 8192 x 4320 allowing 4,000-scaling lines' resolution. (JVC said existing Ultra High Definition projectors use display devices that do not provide 4,000-scaling line imaging for red and blue, but only for green.)

The new projector's luminance is 10,000 lm, about 50 percent more than current units, with a contrast ratio of 5,500:1.

If you're in Tokyo, the demo will be held at the Science & Technical Research Laboratories of NHK in the Setagaya Ward.
