JVC Announces New D-ILA Home Theatre Projectors

JVCKENWOOD Canada has announced four new high-end D-ILA home projectors with model numbers DLA-NZ900/DLA-RS4200 and DLA-NZ800/DLA-RS3200. All new projectors are capable of inputting and displaying 8K60p resolution images with higher native contrast and brightness.

The JVC DLA-NZ900 features a native contrast ratio of 150,000:1.

Each model features JVC’s new 4K D-ILA motor that have been further refined to the third generation to achieve a 1.5 times higher native contrast ratio when compared to a conventional device.  JVC’s new proprietary BLU-Escent Laser light engine also increases brightness and luminosity with the new models. Users can experience higher definition images through the vastly improved performance of these projectors, achieved through 8K input and display, and the expansion of dynamic range by improving contrast and brightness.

Over the past few years, how video content is watched has evolved, and this change has led to making 4K/HDR content the norm. Video content has progressed from content led by movie companies and TV stations to those offered by subscription and streaming services. At the same time, the format has shifted from conventional disc media such as Blu-ray and Ultra HD Blu-ray to streaming and subscriptions. Furthermore, 8K video content is expected to increase with the launch of 8K streaming services like YouTube and the release of 8K-compatible game titles with the development of enhanced graphic cards in the gaming industry. 

JVC has historically released D-ILA projectors focused on targeting full-scale theatre rooms for customers who truly enjoy the home theatre experience. Although the content being viewed is changing, the customer’s desire to enjoy the highest quality image on a large screen remains unchanged and the new models accommodate the variety of content platforms available to the customer.


DLA-NZ900/DLA-RS4200 are capable of achieving a native contrast ratio of 150,000:1 (100,000:1 for the DLA-NZ800/DLA-RS3200) with an 18-element, 16-group 100-mm all-glass lens featuring a full aluminum lens barrel. To project high-resolution 8K images to every corner of the screen while securing wide shift ranges of 100% vertically and 43% horizontally.  The projector also incorporates five extra-low dispersion lenses calibrated for differences in the R/G/B refractive index to reduce chromatic aberration and colour fringing when lens shift kicks in to deliver precise reproduction of 4K or 8K resolution. 

Sherpa Technology Group are the Eastern Canadian distributor for JVC Projectors. The new projectors will commence shipping July 2024.
