JVC Debuts Native 4K D-ILA Projector Aimed at the Simulation Market

jvc-dla-1116JVC Visual Systems today announced the DLA-VS4500 Visualization Series projector, which combines native 4K resolution and JVC’s BLU-Escent illumination system that’s specifically for the simulation market.

With three native 4K DCI (4096×2160) D-ILA imagers, the DLA-VS4500 is capable of displaying 12-bit color, is spec’d at 3,000 ANSI lumens and supports 120Hz refresh rates. A full range of high MTF fixed and zoom lens options will be available to meet various throw ratio requirements.

JVC’s BLU-Escent laser/phosphor technology is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional lamp-based illumination. JVC says it is ideally suited for the simulation market because it provides high reliability over extended operating hours, maintains stable brightness and color, delivers very high contrast and dynamic range and allows flexible mounting orientations. The DLA-VS4500 has an estimated 20,000-hour light source life, utilizing JVC’s second generation BLU-Escent technology.

The DLA-VS4500 will be available in spring 2017 but no price has been set yet. Here are the specs.
