JVC unveils worlds first THX 3D Certified home theater projectors at CES 2011
JVC is demonstrating the world’s first home theater projectors DLA-X9 and DLA-X7 to gain THX 3D Display Certification, and as of CES, the only projectors certified under the program. 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. For 3D content, each projector includes two HDMI 1.4a ports and supports side-by-side (broadcast), frame packing (Blu-ray Disc), and above-below 3D transmissions. The new flagship Procision projector, the DLA-X9, is built using hand-selected, hand-tested components and provides a 100,000:1 native contrast ratio. For 3D display, it comes with two pairs of 3D glasses along with a PK-EM1 3D Signal Emitter.
Both projectors also have a three-year warranty. The DLA-X7 offers 70,000:1 native contrast ratio, comes with a two-year warranty and is compatible with JVC’s PK-AG1 Active Shutter 3D Glasses and the PK-EM1 3D Signal Emitter (sold separately) for 3D presentations. The new JVC D-ILA projectors are available now at the following prices: DLA-RS60/DLA-X9 for $11,995 and DLA-RS50/DLA-X7 for $7,995.
