4K e-shift 4 technology

JVC's Extreme 4K Image Quality

Experience absolute presence as images seem to float in mid-air, and you forget the existence of the screen. Be totally immersed in the world that is portrayed, as images envelop you. Beyond 2K is a new world of moving experiences that only 4K can deliver.
JVC's e-shift 4 technology is able to reproduce the finest nuances and unique tone of every visual work, enabling you to enjoy a 4K-resolution* image with extreme realism and presence in your home theatre environment.

Original 4K e-shift Technology continues to evolve

JVC’s e-shift technology shifts sub-frames by 0.5 pixels both vertically and horizontally to achieve 4 times the pixel density of the original content. The latest e-shift 4 Technology is capable of inputting full-spec 4K video signals including 4K60P 4:4:4 thanks to the optimised engine and the newly adopted high power lamp. These improvements result in an even higher definition picture with more precision.

New Multiple Pixel Control

JVC’s original high-performance image processing technology, Multiple Pixel Control, has been improved to match the trend towards higher resolution. Through adoption of a new analysis algorithm, the MPC is now capable of more accurate diagonal detection between frames for both full HD and full 4K resolution signals, delivering a thoroughly immersive high-definition 4K image.

Clear Motion Drive with High-speed LSI

Further improvement has been applied to JVC’s original Clear Motion Drive. It now is compatible with 4K60P 4:4:4 signals for reproducing moving images without ghosting or afterimage issues.

New Motion Enhance

In addition to the improved Clear Motion Drive, the new D-ILA projectors are equipped with originally developed Motion Enhance technology. By optimally controlling the driving performance of D-ILA devices by image characteristics, residual images and blurring that are often found in fast-moving images are reduced. JVC’s original Clear Motion Drive and Motion Enhance technologies will help to reproduce a variety of crisp and smooth moving images.

JVC Developed Proprietary D-ILA Device

The exceptional picture quality of JVC projectors is achieved by the precision technology behind the company's original D-ILA devices. The latest device, which has an even narrower gap between pixels and is planarised, achieves brighter images rich with contrast. The device is optimally designed to complement ultra-high 4K resolution for precision image expression with virtually no screen-door effect.

Wide-range picture element detection

Wider signal range can be detected within a frame thanks to a 10-fold increase in image component detection range from a conventional 6 x 6 pixels to 21 x 21 pixels. This improvement helps to detect even minute details to achieve more natural and realistic video reproduction.

High-performance filtering

Detection-range segmentation has been improved from a conventional 2 bands* to 8 bands to perform high-precision filtering. This helps to achieve highly detailed image reproduction for a broader range of bandwidths.

Pixel Analyser (analysis screen)

Pixel Analyser is an analysis screen that allows the user to achieve high-definition video that matches the individual characteristics of the image. Video signals pass through a multi-band filter for analysis and are then colour-separated by frequency bands, which can be viewed on the screen. User-preferred, effective results can be achieved by selecting parameters that match the image. Additionally, new direct buttons on the remote controller enable you to see the effective adjustment area easily.

Adjustment Point

In order to achieve images with superior expression and dimensionality, four adjustment points are provided. By turning of the 4K e-shift off, it is possible to adjust in the original 2K resolution.

Item Setting Range Description
Enhance 0-10 Enhances the sharpness of the image.
Dynamic Contrast 0-10 Enhances the contrast of the image.
Smoothing 0-10 Enhances the blurriness of the image for a softer effect.
NR (Noise Reduction) 0-10 Reduce the noise of the image.

Comparison of before/after adjustment image

When using the MPC adjustment and color management, you can easily check the image before and after adjustments by pushing the "HIDE" button on the remote controller.
