The Frame Adapt HDR technology, which uses a proprietary algorithm to instantaneously analyze the maximum brightness of HDR10 content per frame and adjust the dynamic range in real time to the optimum range for video projection on projectors, has evolved into the second generation. As the culmination of the HDR image processing technology that we have cultivated up to now, we have completely reexamined the tone mapping algorithm in accordance with the scene and frame, and have achieved HDR images with higher definition and full of three-dimensional feeling by suppressing the whiteness especially in the high brightness area.
Light source control by Gauge
Laser light source adjustment function that can be finely adjusted according to the environment and preference. After the update from the previous 3 steps, fine adjustment of 0 -100 steps is possible, and adjustment based on the brightness on the screen and flexible setting according to the use environment are possible.
USB backup function that can save and write all settings at once.
This function saves the settings on the main unit menu to a commercially available USB flash drive. Professional adjustments can be saved or backed up in advance to undo unintended adjustments by children or family members.
World’s first home projector capable of
inputting 8K60p/4K120p signals
These projectors adopt LSI's developed with the latest technology to process the vast amount of 8K input data, and an up converter to bring any source up to high definition 8K resolution. As a result, more beautiful and realistic video images full of contrast and reality can be enjoyed regardless of the source, from video streaming to 4K UHD-BD videos.
Newly developed 8K/e-shiftX technology to achieve
Significant progress has been made to our proprietary 8K/e-shift technology – which combines “e-shift” high-resolution display technology, that doubles the resolution by shifting a pixel by 0.5 pixels, and 0.69-inch native 4K D-ILA device. Shift direction has increased from the conventional two diagonal directions to four directions of up, down, left, and right, to enable display of 8K signal information in its entirety.
The result is an 8K resolution, enhancing the sense of three-dimensionality and immersion.
4K120p input ideal for Low Latency Mode
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.
Essential all-glass lens to depict all the data in the 8K/4K images
The DLA-NZ8 is equipped with an 17-element, 15-group all-glass lens featuring a full aluminum lens barrel. To project high resolution 8K images to every corner of the screen.
Ultra-High Contrast Optics with 4K D-ILA device
High-resolution image projection is reliant on the device and the optical system. The refined 0.69-inch 4K D-ILA device has doubled the speed required, to display images from 120 Hz to 240 Hz-equivalent. The new Ultra-High Contrast Optics featured on the DLAｰNZ8 contribute to achieve optical brightness as high as 2,500 lumens, and the new optics has dramatically improved the image quality by thoroughly suppressing the return of unnecessary light to the projection screen.
Reliability-proved BLU-Escent Laser Diode for exceptional brightness and longevity
The light source for these projectors is the latest blue laser diode BLU-Escent, which is featured in JVC projectors. BLUEscent technology has been adopted for home theatre projectors to achieve exceptional brightness and longevity of 20,000 hours*. Laser diode allows dynamic control of brightness to reproduce images that are closer to human perception. Combining the latest BLU-Escent package with the D-ILA device achieves detailed, smooth, powerful video expression.
*In theory, this amounts to 20 years or more while watching a 2.5-hour movie every day.
Unparalleled black level achieved through high contrast ratio and high luminance
The 0.69-inch 4K D-ILA device and the optical engine employing a wire grid alone realize a native contrast of 80,000:1 on the DLA-NZ8. But on top of that, in combination with the dynamic light source control that automatically controls the output of the laser light source by analyzing 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.
New algorithm on the laser dynamic control
Laser Dynamic Dimming control was previously based on the average luminance of the entire scene. With the new mode, adjustment is based on peak luminance. This results in images with increased dynamic range. In particular, the new mode improves reproduction of content such as stars twinkling in pitch blackness and nightscapes. In addition, even images with low peak luminance can be enjoyed with a greater sense of contrast.
*The feature supports software version v2.00 and later versions.
Vivid color images achieved with DCI-P3-equivalent wide color gamut
The use of a laser light source and cinema filters enables a wide color gamut equivalent to DCI-P3, not to mention BT.709. HDR content, as typified by UHD Blu-rays, uses a much wider color gamut than ever. When such content is projected on the DLA-NZ9 or the NZ8 with a wide color gamut, it is possible to richly reproduce colors that were difficult to reproduce until now, such as the gradations of the sky and ocean, the contrast of red roses or a row of fresh green trees.
HDR10+ Support allows a choice for two dynamic
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.
Improvements to Frame Adapt HDR
●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.
FILMMAKER MODE™ that faithfully recreates the creator’s intentions
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.
