Home theater projectors have been developing at a tremendous rate over the last few years. Now, JVC have released a ground breaking 4K home theater projector, and it has been receiving some rave reviews from people who have already purchased and used the projector in their home. This is why we thought we would take a look at the projector and analyze whether in fact it is worth the investment or not.
Taking a Closer Look at the JVC DLAX500R Home Theater Projector
Because of the premium price of the projector, you would expect some premium features, and this is what the projector offers in spades. It has a 60,000:1 Native Contrast Ratio Intelligent Lens Aperture for Dynamic Contrast Ratio of 600,000:1, which offers the best possible picture quality for users. There is “Clear Black Processing”, which has been designed to vastly improve the local area contrast of the images produced.
We noticed that the Multi Pixel Control (MPC) with New Auto Mode MPC was able to improve 2K images up to 4K up-conversion. Very few projectors are able to do this, so this is one of the main advantages of the JVC DLAX500R Home Theater Projector.
The projector is able to support 3D content and display using “Active Shutter 3D”. This allows the projector to accept Frame Sequential, Side-by-Side, and Top-Bottom 3D Anamorphic images. It also has capable 3D Crosstalk Cancellation technology, with a 2D to 3D Conversion System, which we found to work very well.
It also makes use of 3D Parallax Adjustment, with optional RF Active Shutter. The projector comes with two pairs of 3D Glasses (PK-AG3G) and a RF 3D Emitter (PK-EM2G) to make 3D possible in your home.
For ease of control and use, it is possible to download a smartphone app to help you to control the setup of the projector. It is possible to make minor image adjustments, allowing you to set the image to just the way you like it. There are also five user adjustable presets. We loved the motorized 2X Zoom Lens (1.4:1 – 2.8:1), which really offers fantastic images. The Real Color Imaging Technology and the 7-Axis Color Management System (R,G,B,C,M,Y,Orange) take the images produced to the next level.
