JVC is back­ing 4K DLP tech­nol­ogy, with a UHD HDR pro­jec­tor de­signed for home cin­ema. The LX-UH1 is a sin­gle chip pro­jec­tor which uses a 0.47-inch TRP dig­i­tal mi­cromir­ror de­vice (DMD) and RGBRGB colour wheel. Bright­ness is quoted at 2,000 lu­mens, and a dy­namic con­trast ra­tio of 100,000:1.

The LX-UH1 cov­ers 100 per cent of the Rec.709 colour space, and down­scales wider colour gamuts. It’s com­pat­i­ble with both HDR10 and HLG HDR for­mats. When used with HDR con­tent, users have an op­tion to en­gage a two-po­si­tion au­to­matic aper­ture to cast the most dy­namic of im­ages.

The pro­jec­tor of­fers a wide ver­ti­cal and hor­i­zon­tal lens shift, specif­i­cally ±60 per cent ver­ti­cal and ±23 per cent hor­i­zon­tal. The LX-UH1 has a 1.6x wide zoom lens. There is also an RS232C in­ter­face and a 12-volt screen trig­ger out­put. The pro­jec­tor in­cludes two HDMI in­puts, one of which is HDCP 2.2 com­pat­i­ble.

The adop­tion of 4K DLP tech­nol­ogy for the LX-UH1 would seem to con­firm that JVC is un­able to de­velop an af­ford­able UHD pro­jec­tor us­ing its much-lauded D-ILA pro­jec­tion tech­nol­ogy. To date, the only na­tive 4K pro­jec­tor from the brand has been the DLA-Z1.
