JVC has developed what it claims is the industry's highest pixel density projection chip that will enable future 4K2K projectors to be smaller, lighter and more affordable.

The 4K2K D-ILA chip will deliver images that are more than four times the resolution of high definition. The 1.27-inch (approximately 43 percent area reduction) 4K2K D-ILA device chip expands on technologies used in the DLA-HD10/RS1 D-ILA Reference Series home cinema projectors that deliver 15,000:1 native contrast ratio.

The 4K2K D-ILA device offers about 4,096 x 2,400 and a high 20,000:1 contrast ratio.

"Introduction of a 4K2K device this small is truly a breakthrough in the industry and a much needed technology," said Jack Faiman, VP of display division, JVC. "An extremely high contrast ratio provides the stability and resolution needed in crucial applications such as flight simulators and robotic surgery."

Applications that will benefit from 4K2K projectors featuring JVC's new D-ILA technology consist of simulation, computer modeling and CAD and medical viewing systems.

"Smaller 4K projectors will allow development of more realistic motion based flight simulatorsespecially training systems for the new jumbo airliners that have large pilot windows. A combination of the extremely high contrast ratio and 4K2K resolution provides pilots with the most realistic simulation experience possible," said Faiman.

With respect to computer modeling, computer design systems can now present designers with four times the detail of present HD-based systems, particularly important in automotive and airframe design.

In the medical device industry, the high native contrast, accurate grayscale gradations and unmatched resolution of JVC's 4K2K D-ILA technology, will allow systems that have been traditionally film-based to migrate to digital technology.

JVC's family of high-definition, ultra high-resolution home theater projection systems feature its proprietary three-chip Direct Drive Image Light Amplifier (D-ILA) technology, an advanced form of liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS) that is capable of greater pixel density than competing technologies such as DLP or LCD.
