New DLA-Z1 native 4K D-ILA laser projector
JVC’s DLA-Z1 4K D-ILA projector is the first in the world to be recognised as a THX Certified 4K Display. The native 4K HDR laser projector combines our newly developed 4096x2160 D-ILA devices and new BLU-Escent laser phosphor light source, delivering exquisite native 4K high dynamic range (HDR) images, at peak brightness of 3,000 lumens, that fills every inch of a massive screen.
- Newly developed Native 4K “D-ILA “ device
JVC first developed its Native 4K D-ILA device in the year 2000. Since then JVC has continuously developed this technology, 1.7inch device in 2004, 1.27inch device in 2007, being one of the leading companies in the high definition video field. The new D-ILA device developed this time has narrowed the pixel gap by 31% against former devices to 3.8㎛, realising high quality 4K (4096x2160 pixel) picture with the World’s smallest 0.69inch device. Further, by using both vertical orientation technology and planarization technique, unnecessary scattering and diffraction of light has been decreased to realize high contrast ratio. DLA-Z1 uses three of these 4K D-ILA devices, each device dedicated for the colours Red, Green and Blue. As a result a smooth, detailed picture without the lattice being seen, can be produced even when using large screen sizes
- High brightness and Long life brought by Laser light source “Blu-Escent”
The light source will be JVC original Laser technology “Blu-Escent” using a Blue Laser diode. This will mean high brightness of 3,000lm and 20,000 hours long life can coexist. The improvement of brightness will make compatibility to large size screens over 200inches, and raise the peak brightness on HDR picture, which will bring depth to the picture like you have never experienced on home theatres before.
- High definition, ∞:1 contrast ratio realized by Dynamic Light Source Control
Using the Laser Diode as the light source, light output can be controlled instantly. This means brightness control can be made without delays compared to the conventional mechanical adjustment (lens aperture). DLA-Z1 can control the laser output accordingly to the scene’s brightness, which creates picture that is close to the human perception. Also by controlling the laser output when switching scenes or during signal identifications, contrast ratio of ∞:1 has been realized.
- Vivid Images created from wide Colour Gamut
The combination of Laser light source and new Cinema Filter can obtain wide colour gamut of 100% DCI P3 and over 80% coverage of BT.2020. The gradation of sky or sea, the crimson red of a rose, the fresh green of trees can be reproduced vividly like never before. It can realize a beautiful picture even when compared to movie theatres for UHD Blu-ray contents, by expressing the various colours contained in the content utilizing the wide colour gamut.
- New High Resolution Lens dedicated for 4K
Together with the “4K D-ILA” devices, a new 16 group 18 sheets all glass lens and full aluminum lens barrel has been developed. The diameter of the lens is 100mm compared to conventional 65mm, in order to project the 4K resolution to every corner of the screen whilst keeping a wide shift range of 100% vertical, 43% horizontal shift.  In addition, adopting five anomalous dispersion lenses in accordance to the different refractive index of R/G/B light, the chromatic aberration and color fringing when shifted can be minimized, resulting in precise projection of 4K resolution graphics.
- HDR (High Dynamic Range) Compatibility
HDR contents like UHD Blu-ray, are contents with extended brightness range, 10bit gradation, wide BT.2020 colour gamut, which demand high specifications to the display equipment. The DLA-Z1, having high contrast ratio with 80% BT.2020 coverage, and dynamic light source control together with high brightness, can let you enjoy the full merit of HDR images
- New Design intended for Top-end model
Symmetrical design body with high quality, hairline finished aluminum centre part to put accent. Matt black paint is applied to reduce reflections in pitch black theatre rooms. Inside the lens ring, that accentuates the large diameter lens, is a gold alunite ring which adds casual luxury to the model. Not only that, the rear intake/front exhaust can flexibly adapt to the various environments of installations, and further to ensure long term usages, it employs professional level air filter which can withstand sever conditions.
