JVC LX-UH1 Brochure Link

JVC Launches Cost Effective 4K/UHD DLP Projector

JVC has announced a new 4K HDR DLP projector that extends the brand's reputation for stunning image quality to a wider audience of home theater enthusiasts.

The new JVC LX-UH1 is a 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) projector that uses the newly developed TRP DMD technology to deliver 4K images, and offers HDR support, 2,000 lumens, and vertical and horizontal lens shift.

The new 0.47-inch TRP digital micromirror device (DMD) is a 4K UHD DLP chipset that in combination with the LX-UH1's high quality optical system delivers crisp 4K (3840 x 2160) video. With four times the resolution of 1080p, 2000 lumens, and an RGBRGB color wheel, the new projector delivers bright, high-contrast images for a thrilling home theater experience, with a dynamic contrast ratio of 100,000:1.

The LX-UH1 supports 100% of Rec. 709 color space (BT.2020 compatible) and displays HDR content with outstanding brightness, contrast and color. The projector supports both HDR10 and Hybrid Log Gamma, an HDR Gamma mode for broadcasts and streaming services. When viewing HDR content users have the option to engage the two-position automatic aperture to get the best possible image quality.

The projector includes two HDMI inputs, including one that features the full speed/full spec HDMI/HDCP2.2 standard and capable of handling data transfer rates up to 18Gbps. There is also an RS-232C interface and a 12-volt screen trigger output.

To accommodate a wide range of installation situations the LX-UH1 provides a ±60% vertical lens shift and ±23% horizontal lens shift. In combination with the projector's 1.6x wide zoom lens, this enhanced versatility makes it easy to install the projector in most any home environment. MSRP CAN$2999

 

Go Farther with Copper HDMI Cables.

Our award-winning Velox Active HDMI Cables allow integrators to go up to 30 meters / 98 feet with 4K/HDR at 18Gbps using copper!

 

4K/HDR 18GBPS Reference Guide

Velox ULTRA HIGH SPEED ACTIVE HDMI Cables

Velox is the first-to-market cable line to combine evolutionary design and engineering techniques to support the new generation 4K/HDR video applications. Velox cables deliver a verified 18Gbps HD signal for higher resolutions, frame rates and colors over HD interconnects thanks to the patented Titan Chip.

High Speed Performance and Cutting Edge Technology
Velox active cables OPERATE WITH THE ENTIRE 18Gbps envelope and are DPL Laboratories certified. They incorporate an innovative new version of a symmetrical HDCP and EDID rise time accelerator for both the data and clock lines on the I2C bus (the Display Data Channel). This eliminates EDID errors because this repair is bidirectional, ensures that the HDCP handshaking occurs reliably.

Guaranteeing signal integrity and synchronization, Velox active cables incorporate clock amplification and intra-pair skew correction necessary for delivering the latest video and audio formats reliably. Additionally, a 100-millisecond delay on the Hot Plug Detect signal assures that the HDMI® source device receives the EDID information correctly from the sync.

Digital Performance Labs (DPL) Tested
These cables are DPL Labs (www.dpllabs.com) certified to ensure long term usability and performance. DPL testing clears away the “smoke and mirrors” common in the HDMI® cable business by creating a fair but tough comparative standard against which all HDMI® products can be tested.

24K Gold Plated Contact Connectors
It is certainly worth noting that not only do these cables look great, they are also designed with the best materials and tested for heavy duty use to deliver stunning picture, sound and control year after year. We use 24k gold contacts to ensure the highest possible connectivity for the best signal integrity. They are also corrosion resistant and provide maximum signal transfer over the life of your system.

Multi-Layer Shielding
Multiple layers of shielding prevent electromagnetic interference to maximize noise isolation as well as protecting the other components from HDMI® high speed emanations.

Audio Return Channel (ARC)
The incorporated audio return channel provides the ability to send multi-channel audio from the display back to the surround processor (dependent on the equipment being ARC enabled), reducing cable clutter.

Colour Coded Cable Management
Velox active cables feature an interchangeable colour-coding scheme for easy cable identification and management. Each cable comes with 6 sets of color coded nubs - making cable management a snap!

Available in 10 to 30 meter lengths.

Airplay 2 Update

 

Marantz & Denon announce Airplay 2 Update

Marantz and Denon have announced current receiver and sound bar models that will be firmware upgradable to Apple’s forthcoming 
AirPlay 2 whole home streaming technology.

AirPlay 2 is Apple’s response to Amazon Alexa and Google, who have made tremendous inroads with music streaming platforms like Sonos, Heos, and MusicCast.  With AirPlay 2, you’ll be able to control all AirPlay 2-enabled speakers from a single app and use Siri voice commands to play songs in particular rooms.

Apple made a big splash by announcing AirPlay 2 compatible products. Unfortunately, when it comes to Marantz’s and Denon’s AV receivers, Apple published an incorrect and incomplete list of current products that will support AirPlay 2.

Deliver the Best 4K / HDR Content Without Running New Cables

 

HDM-GA1 Video Presentation

HDMI® 4K/60, HDR EXTENDER Upgrade Passive HDMI® Cables to 8Gbps,4K/60 HDR Capability.

The HDM-GA1 allows the installer to utilize existing in-wall passive HDMI cables up to 15 meters in length to upgrade and support the full 4K/60, 4:4:4, HDR signal soon to be available in many video products. We know that there are a lot of systems already installed in the real world that have quality passive HDMI cables in them and we also know that as an integrator you must build into the job the best possible avenue for future technology expansion. Again the HDM-GA1 is the solution, why beat your head against the wall with worry about will a given format support what is coming when we already have the answer.

Here is what the HDM-GA1 will do for you.

  1. It will take an existing passive HDMI cable up to 15 meters in length and allow it to support every single option that HDMI 2.0A can provide. That means 4/60, 4:4:4 Color, 3D, all available Multi-Channel Audio Codecs and (most importantly) High Dynamic Resolution [HDR].
  2. When (not if) technology exceeds the HDMI 2.0A bandwidth all that you will need to do is replace the HDM-GA1 with the newer, higher bandwidth model.

An easy 4K/HDR upgrade solution. It. Just. Works.

SONY VPL-VW385


SONY vs JVC Shootout - Two Top Projectors Go Head to Head!

Review excerpt:

So, while the Sony has true 4K resolution at $US5K and $US8K price points, the JVC at almost the same price points has a wider color gamut and deeper contrast - plus will accept a 4:4:4 60P 4K HDR signal, which the Sony will not. This is due to the fact that the JVC models will all accept 18 Gbps inputs, while the Sony units are limited to 13.5 Gbps.

Link for the complete review by The Screening Room AV

It's one thing to compare the published specs of two different high performance projectors like the Sony VPL-VW385 and a JVC DLA-RS640 on paper, but it's another to actually compare both products in person, side by side. Fortunately we have both projectors on display in our showroom, which made the comparison easy to achieve. On October 30th we spent an entire day pitting the two against each other at our demo theater here in Colorado Springs. 

Before we get to the results, it's worth noting that the Sony VPL-VW385 is essentially the same projector as the Sony VPL-VW285, only with the benefit of an automatic iris to bump up dynamic picture contrast. Native contrast on the VW285 and VW385 are the same, so we thought the VW385 was an ideal test candidate since it is essentially two projectors in one. :)

Similarly, the JVC DLA-RS640 used during our test is practically the same unit as the JVC DLA-RS540, only with hand-selected optics and DILA chips for the ultimate "tweaked" performance. However, as you can tell by clicking on the links, the RS640 and RS540 have almost identical specs and feature sets. Much like the Sony VW385 served as a stand in for the VW285, the RS640 serves as a stand in for the RS540.
