JVC’s new D-ILA Budget Projector Due Next Month

JVC’s new entry-level D-ILA home theatre projector will go on sale next month for $5,499.

Despite being JVC’s budget model, the DLA-HD250B boasts the core technologies and many of the features that distinguished earlier D-ILA projectors.

Chief among these is its industry-leading native contrast ratio of 25,000:1. It achieves this without use of an auto iris through JVC’s proprietary 0.7-inch full HD D-ILA devices and the company’s wire-grid optical engine that delivers precise light polarisation without light leakage for true black level reproduction.

It also has a three-step fixed aperture that’s meant to stop extraneous light from reducing contrast levels (and aids brightness adjustment), and an HQV Reon-VX video processor to maximise image reproduction with precision I/P conversion and scaling.

The  high-performance 2x zoom lens with motorised focus, zoom and shift features a large diameter, all-glass lens system with 17 elements in 15 groups that includes an ED lens to project a full HD image with exceptional depth.

There’s also a unique automatic lens cover that opens when the projector is powered up and closes when powered down to protect against dust.

Customised on-screen gamma control allows you to tweak luminance levels by either increasing contrast in scenes that are too dark or dimming washed-out scenes to optimal brightness. (Up to three settings can be adjusted and stored for future use.)

The ±80 percent vertical and ±34 percent horizontal motorised lens shift function moves the projected picture horizontally or vertically by remote control, and a more efficient cooling system has cut fan noise to 19dB.
