THX 4K HDR Certification

So, when we heard the latest news from projector extraordinaires, JVC, that two of their recently introduced home theatre projectors had received THX 4K HDR certification, we knew that we had to share it with our customers.

What is unique about the certification, is that these projectors, the JVC Procision Series DLA-NX9 and the Reference Series DLA-RS3000 are the first display products ever, that’s right, ever, to achieve the nod.

The World’s First 8K

The JVC Procision Series DLA-NX9 and the Reference Series DLA-RS3000 both feature JVC’s newest native 4K D-ILA device and the company’s 8K e-shift technology to produce a formidable 8K image on the screen. A substantial improvement in image quality is achieved through the HDR content’s expanded luminance range, wide color gamut, 10-bit gradation, and other such enhancements.

The THX 4K HDR certification is the most demanding specification that a display product can achieve, and its awarding ensures that these displays achieve all that HDR can deliver to provide the most true-to-life video images. In order to achieve the certification, products must pass hundreds of tests – they are evaluated for color and moiré artefacts, and images must match the color, luminance, black levels and gamma seen in the filmmaker’s studio. The certification ensures customers that their JVC projector can, and will, deliver the best possible HDR performance for a truly extraordinary viewing experience. The THX HDR test suite also ensures that even in scenes with multiple sized objects, white levels are produced that meet those expected by editors and colorists in production suites.

Automatic Tone Mapping

A key feature of the new JVC projectors is the Auto Tone Mapping function, which automatically adjusts settings for the optimum HDR10 image. The HDR10 mastering information varies greatly depending on content. Therefore, in order to achieve the best HDR10 experience, it is necessary to set the appropriate brightness settings for each piece of programming. The new Auto Tone Mapping function automatically adjusts settings based on the mastering information. Various HDR images with different brightness can be viewed optimally without manual adjustment of the settings.

The certification underscores JVC’s commitment to delivering the best Home Theatre experience possible, a commitment shared by our Sound Xperience team.
