World’s first home projector capable of inputting 8K60p/4K120p signals
It is equipped with a new 8K/e-shiftX proprietary technology to reproduce 8K-quality images. The projector is driven by three native 4K D-ILA devices, high-quality 100 mm glass lens, and Ultra-High Brightness of 3,000 lumens. The BLU-Escent laser diode light source also contributes to project images that come close to reality.

JVCs proprietary 8K/e-shiftX technology with 4-direction shift reproduces 8K-quality image
0.69-inch 4K D-ILA (4096 x 2160) device x 3
17-element, 15-group all-glass 65 mm diameter high-quality lens
Ultra-High Contrast Optics with BLU-Escent laser light source contributes for optical brightness of 2,500 lumens and longevity of 20,000 hours
Multiple Pixel Control image processor accurately reproduces images closer to the original
Infinity:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio; 80,000:1 Native Contrast Ratio
Cinema Filter (DCI-P3) creates saturated, beautiful images that come to life
Compatible with the two dynamic tone mappings of HDR10+ content and Frame Adapt HDR with Theatre Optimiser*; together, the projector expresses HDR/HDR10+ content at optimum brightness and darkness in each scene as the creator intended.
The projector automatically reproduces HDR10+ content based on the metadata of the producer’s intentions for each scene.
Frame Adapt HDR with Theatre Optimiser performs tone mapping according to the input signal of the content, as well as the installation environment and/or usage conditions of the projector.
Installation Mode with 10 Memories centrally manage nine settings related to installation to enjoy video best suited for each environment
Eight settings of Installation Mode include Lens Control, Pixel Adjustment, Mask, Anamorphic on or off, Screen Setting, Installation Style, Keystone, and Aspect; stored installation modes for various environments can be called up.
Compensation accuracy of Clear Motion Drive improved in the periphery of objects. Added with Motion Enhance technology, the projector can reproduce much smoother moving 4K images (function disabled when inputting 4K120p signals).
Low Latency Mode suppresses display delay for faster response when receiving signals from PC and game consoles
Colour Management System with 6-axis Matrix
Auto-Calibration Function using an optical sensor** is capable of optimising essential elements in the image, including colour balance, gamma characteristics, colour space and colour tracking
ISF C3 (Certified Calibration Controls) mode*** to reproduce excellent picture quality optimised for specific environments.
Wireless transmission options for 3D viewing: RF (radio frequency) system transmission with PK-AG3 3D Glasses for 100H continuous operation and PK-EM2 3D Synchro Emitter
HDR10+ Support allows a choice for two dynamic tone mappings
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.
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 DLANZ9 and NZ8 contribute to achieve optical brightness as high as 3,000 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. BLU-Escent 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.
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.
Newly developed 8K/e-shiftX technology to achieve 8K resolution
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.
