At CEDIA this past fall, JVC announced (and has subsequently released) a new firmware update for its current generation 4K projectors, bringing with it a massive improvement in HDR performance through real-time, frame-by-frame, DTM (dynamic tonemapping) software. While there, I was able to demo a beta version of this software through the company’s $18,000 DLA-NX9 projector (also sold as the DLA-RS3000 depending on geo-location and market). To say the least, I was very impressed.
Those who’ve been to trade shows know that demos are rarely given under ideal lighting. While JVC did a commendable job removing as many setup issues as possible, the demo left me wanting to see how this projector would look under more controlled conditions in my own theater.
