JVC’s cutting-edge technologies for
realising pristine 4K-resolution images

  • native 4K D-ILA device
  • BLU-Escent laser light source

The Newly developed 0.69” native 4K D-ILA device, the smallest in the worldThe Newly developed 0.69” native 4K D-ILA device, the smallest in the world

The newly developed D-ILA device, with a pixel pitch of 3.8 μm, occupies an area that is 31% smaller compared to previous devices※2. The native 4K device for projection is the smallest in the world※1 at 0.69”, and allows the projector to achieve a high-definition display at 4K resolution (4096 × 2160 pixels). Furthermore, vertical orientation and planarization technologies reduce defects such as light scattering and diffraction, enhancing contrast. The result is a smooth, highdefinition image free of visible pixelation, even when projecting on large screens.

High brightness level and long life with the BLU-Escent laser light sourceHigh brightness level and long life with the BLU-Escent laser light source

The projector’s light source is based on JVC’s proprietary BLU-Escent laser projection technology, which uses blue laser diodes to offer both a brightness level of 3,000 lm and 20,000 hours of operational life. Improvements in brightness allow for a beautiful image on large screens. Moreover, the massive increase in peak brightness, when projecting HDR and dynamic control of laser output according to the brightness of the image, work together to create a contrast ratio of ∞:1, creating a stunning home theatre experience that expresses a greater range than ever before.



The full performance of 4K on display, via a newly
developed high-definition lens and optical engine

  • New high-resolution lens optimized for 4K
  • New optical engine

In conjunction with the new 4K D-ILA device, a new 18-element, 16-group all-glass lens with a full aluminium lens barrel was also designed. A new 100 mm diameter lens is used to project 4K-resolution images to every corner of the screen. This compares to the 65 mm diameter used in other projectors※4. The new lens offers an expanded lens shift of ±100% vertically and ±43% horizontally※3. In addition, by adopting five ED lenses that take into account differences in R/G/B refractive index, the projector is able to reduce chromatic aberration and colour fringing to deliver a precise reproduction of 4K-resolution images.

A new optical engine optimized for 4KA new optical engine optimized for 4K

The optical engine has been overhauled through the use of the 4K D-ILA device and the laser light source BLU-Escent. By changing the F value from the 3.2 of previous models※5 to 2.6, the projector features a layout that uses light much more efficiently, achieving a high brightness level of 3,000 lm. A wire grid increases accuracy of polarization, preventing light from dissipating back towards the lens and lowering contrast. In addition, the rigid chassis minimises vibrations from the fans housed in the unit, allowing you to enjoy a stable 4K projection with excellent picture quality.

High-quality image technologies for
realism that will take your breath away

  • Wide Colour Gamut
  • Support for HDR

Reproduction of vivid images through a wide range of coloursReproduction of vivid images through a wide range of colours

Through use of its laser light sour ce and a ne w cinema filter, the projector achieves 100% coverage of the DCI-P3 display range used in film pr oduction. The unit furthermore achieves a minimum 80% c overage of the BT.2020 colour range, used for UHD Blu-ray Discs and 4K and 8K broadcasting. These technologies allow for more accurate reproduction of the natural gradations in images of the sky and the sea, which has presented difficulties in the past. Also improved are differences in the colour contrast between subjects such as flowers of a deep crimson or rose colour, or the different shades of green on tree leaves.


Support for the next-generation high-image-quality technology, HDR (high dynamic range)Support for the next-generation high-image-quality technology, HDR (high dynamic range)

HDR (high dynamic r ange) content, such as that av ailable on UHD Blu-ray Discs, offers an extended brightness range, 10-bit gradation and a wide BT.2020 colour gamut. With its high c ontrast ratio, 80% BT.2020 coverage, dynamic light sour ce control, and a peak brightness of 3,000 lm, the projector offers optimal reproduction of HDR content. Moreover, in addition to HDR picture modes that are easy to set up when viewing HDR content, the projector also offers support for Hybrid Log-Gamma, a ne w technology that is e xpected to be used widely in future broadcasting.



Realizing 4K Picture
with Astonishing Quality

  • Super Resolution Technology Multiple Pixel Control
  • Blur Reduction Technology Clear Motion Drive

Multiple Pixel Control, JVC’s proprietary technology for high-quality images Multiple Pixel Control, JVC’s proprietary technology for high-quality images

Based on a new analytical algorithm optimised for 4K devices, Multiple Pixel Control technology achieves a more realistic presentation by detecting the images across the high bandwidth of 4K and enhancing them with both a greater sense of clarity and a softness of focus to backgrounds. In addition, Full HD video can be upscaled to high-definition 4K to allow viewers to enjoy the beautiful, realistic imagery that 4K provides.


Proprietary video processing technology enables smooth motion Proprietary video processing technology enables smooth motion

The projector features two video processing technologies, the blur-reduction technology Clear Motion Drive, which is compatible with 4K60p (4:4:4), and Motion Enhance, which minimises motion blur by optimising the D-ILA driver. These two original technologies, working together, result in a smooth and detailed reproduction of any kind of video by reducing the afterimages that are often seen around quickly moving objects. Enhance the power of your experience when watching sporting events, as well as action and sci-fi movies.



Technologies taking 4K
to its Highest Quality

  • THX 4K Display
  • Supports 4K at 18Gbps and HDCP2.2
  • Screen Adjustment Modes
  • Auto-calibration Function
  • Low Latency Mode

THX Certified 4K Display (Pending Final Test)THX Certified 4K Display (Pending Final Test)

The projector is the first in the world to be recognised as a THX Certified 4K Display, a standard introduced by THX Ltd※. The purpose of this c ertification is to identify displays that possess the means to faithfully reproduce video as it was intended to appear by the director, in not only 2K resolution but also 4K. Qualifying displays must clear over 400 strict tests of image quality, such as accuracy in colour reproduction, viewing angles, and video processing. Displays that can satisfy all of these criteria earn the distinction of being truly top class and high quality.


Supports HDCP 2.2 for stable playback of 4K at 18 Gbps Supports HDCP 2.2 for stable playback of 4K at 18 Gbps

The projector supports the latest HDMI standards, and accepts input from full-spec 4K video sources, such as 4K/60p/4:4:4, 4K/60p/4:2:2/36-bit, and 4K/24p/4:4:4 /36- bit, at a bandwidth of 1 Furthermore, the projector’s support of the HDCP 2.2 s tandard enables playback of copyrighted content from video streaming services or UHD Blu-ray discs, and allows you to connect the projector to other devices that support copy protection for 4K content.


Screen Adjustment ModesScreen Adjustment Modes

The projector selects the best mode to match the screen being used for images with natural colour balance. The modes are compatible with the latest models offered by the world's major screen manufacturers.※6

※6:Refer to JVC website for a comparison of primary screens and adjustment modes.


Auto-calibration FunctionAuto-calibration Function

Using an optical sensor, precise calibration can be performed in just a few easy steps to match the changes in optical characteristics caused by installation situation of the projector. Auto-Calibration optimises all essential elements found in the image, including colour balance, gamma characteristics, colour space, and colour tracking.


Low Latency ModeLow Latency Mode

Latency time can be made shorter for contents which require split-second reactions like PC signals or games.

*Some function will be restricted when Low Latency Mode is ON.
