JVC has quite a reputation to uphold when it comes to projectors. The 2016 lineup features the 4th generation of their famous e-shift technology. What about a native contrast of 150.000:1? Or an even impressive 1.900 Lumens brightness? I’m getting scared of the dynamic contrast of 1.500.000:1! Built with hand-selected and hand-tested components, the JVC DLA-X950R produces exquisite quality images. It accepts native 4K 60P (4:4:4) content through Full Speed 18Gbps HDMI/HDCP 2.2 compatible inputs. Three discrete D-ILA devices produce a flicker free image with 4K precision. The JVC DLA-X950R is THX Certified and meets or exceeds their high standards. For 2016, JVC projectors include HDR content compatibility and an improved Clear Motion Drive for unmatched picture quality, as well as a newly developed high power lamp. Talking about lamps…when used in ‘low mode’, you get 21dB of fan noise.
