What is the JVC Z1?
Over the last decade JVC have been quietly carving out a niche for themselves in the projector market with a range of machines that are famous for delivering the best black levels and contrast ratios around. The DLA-X7000 is a good example of how far JVC have pushed their bulb-based projectors with eShift to add a higher resolution experience from 4K sources, a wider colour gamut and even support for High Dynamic Range (HDR). However until now none of JVC’s projectors have actually been native 4K, leaving that area of the market exclusively to Sony and models like their VPL-VW550ES. That is until now because with the arrival of the DLA-Z1 JVC now have a native 4K projector of their own.
If that wasn’t enough it also uses a blue laser light source which promises increased brightness, longer life and greater consistency compared to the traditional bulb. The new projector also includes active shutter 3D, a very wide colour gamut and support for HDR 10 and Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) which means it should be able to handle whatever content you’re watching apart from Dolby Vision.
