JVC DLA-HD1 1080p Front Projector

January 27, 2007

I wanted to catch up on some CES news that was just too important to let slip by. JVC’s much lauded DLA-HD10K and DLA-HD2K projectors aren’t alone in JVC’s D-ILA stable any longer. I’m sure by now many of you have heard about JVC’s

Earlier today a co-worker and I attended a demonstration of Sim2’s 3-chip, 1080p HT5000 projector; the 1-chip, 1080p HT3000; and their 3-chip, 720p Grand Cinema C3X LITE.
