JVC is known for its D-ILA (Direct Drive Image Light Amplifier) projectors, but today the manufacturer introduces its first 4K projector based on DLP technology. The JVC LX-UH1 is an affordable 4K projector with HDR support.
The LX-UH1 uses TRP (tilt and roll pixels) developed by Texas Instruments. Simply put, this technique ensures that the pixels of a full hd (1080p) image quickly move back and forth to fill two positive on the screen. This results in a resolution that is just below the resolution of Ultra HD but higher than full hd.
Furthermore, the projector comes with a peak brightness of 2000 lumens, a contrast ratio of 100.000: 1 and a RGBRGB color wheel with which 100 percent of the BT.709 standard can be achieved. The LX-UH1 is also compatible with HDR10 and HLG. One of the two HDMI inputs supports the full 2.0 bandwidth (18Gbps) and can therefore process 4K / 60p HDR signals.
The focus, zoom and lens shift of the projector are manual. The lens shift is 60% vertical and 23% horizontal, while the zoom range is 1.36 to 2.18: 1. The beauty of all this is that the price is at 2,500 US dollars, which makes it an affordable projector. The price in euros has not yet been announced.
