All JVC 4k e-shift3 projectors feature a native 4K input.
The Native 4K sources provide a significant boost in picture quality. From the original 4K data JVC creates an A frame and a B frame. There is no interpolation. Through a proprietary process, the correct pixels are selected for each frame. The projector works at double the conventional speed. Then, the 4K e-shift3 mechanism takes each B frame and shifts it down and over a pixel. This creates four 4K sub-pixels in the space of one conventional HD pixel. The viewers eyes and brain combine the A frame and B frame to create the projected 4K e-shift3 image which is seen on the screen.
Compatible 4K signals include:
- 2160P (3840) 23.98hz
- 2160P (3840) 24hz
- 2160P (4096) 23.98hz

Full HD Signals Are Scaled to 4K with JVCs exclusive Multi Pixel Control, and a new auto mode simplifies operation. The projector detects the original resolution, then analyzes the data frame by frame & pixel by pixel. Detail enhancement, dynamic contrast and smoothing are selectively applied in the process of scaling the content to 4K. From that data, individual A frames and B frames are created, which are displayed using the 4K e-shift3 process. (See diagram above)

Three Chip D-ILA
All 4K e-shift3 models feature JVCs 6th Generation D-ILA design with a 40% narrower pixel gap, an improved wire grid, improved brightness and higher native contrast.
D-ILA (Direct Drive Image Light Amplifier) was invented by JVC, and introduced in 1998. Through constant refinement, it has become the ultimate display technology for high-end, high definition home theater. D-ILA is a proprietary form of Liquid Crystal on Silicon. Because it is reflective, D-ILA is highly efficient, offering excellent brightness for today's most demanding sources, including 3D.
For a true cinema experience a darkened room is always best, but it's no longer mandatory. The combination of our latest generation optical engine, a new 230W Super High Pressure lamp and the highly reflective surface of the D-ILA device provide a remarkable picture with ample contrast even in a room with ambient light. JVC's exclusive 3-Chip D-ILA light engine provides the highest resolution and the best picture detail. Improved pixel alignment with negligible space between pixels ensures the greatest contrast and the highest light efficiency. JVC's unique polarized wire grid system further improves contrast and reduces light leakage.
D-ILA Procision projectors are characterized by natural pixel-free film-like images with smooth gray scale and rich, highly accurate colors, thanks to tightly-spaced pixels and liquid crystal blending. What's more, D-ILA chips have no spatial dithering that causes noise in the low black levels.
Native Contrast/Intelligent Lens Aperture
Contrast ratio - a specification that describes a device's ability to reproduce deep blacks and bright whites - is widely recognized as a key performance parameter for home theater display products.
JVC offers the highest Native Contrast in the industry. Nothing else even comes close. Every new JVC 4K e-shift3 model D-ILA offers a substantial improvement in Native Contrast compared to the equivalent model in the previous linean astounding 150,000:1 for the DLA-X900RKT.
Native contrast has been the defining feature for JVC D-ILA projectors for years, and it creates an amazing picture. If thats the way you would like to continue to use your JVC, then we encourage you to do so. What has changed in 2014, is that JVC now offers the option of an Intelligent Lens Aperture. When engaged, the Intelligent Lens Aperture opens or closes to provide deeper blacks or brighter whites, as needed for a particular scene. Intelligent Lens Aperture is unique in that it offers a level of performance that would not be possible without the outstanding Native Contrast that JVC offers as a foundation. There are two auto modes: One regulates the aperture. The other regulates both aperture and gamma. Using the Intelligent Lens Aperture, Dynamic Contrast is increased1,500,000:1 for the DLA-X900RKT.
JVC has a long history of innovation in 3D. Today, JVC studio monitors are used in movie production and broadcast quality JVC processors are the defacto standard for advanced 2D-3D conversion.
All JVC Procision X-Series models are 3D enabled. JVC uses a Frame Sequential Method that provides a full 1920 x 1080 resolution to each eye without crosstalk and flicker. Images are so realistic and so natural-looking that it's like being pulled into the scene. With the frame sequential method, separate left-eye and right-eye images are alternated and require active shutter glasses to perceive the image correctly. Two pairs of RF active shutter glasses and an RF emitter are included with the DLA-X900RKT.
3D is an immersive experience. To truly appreciate it, a large screen is required. JVC D-ILA Procision projectors are the best way to enjoy 3D without compromise. These projectors make it possible to enjoy 3D with an engaging cinematic size that even the largest flat panel TV just can't match. JVC Procision projectors deliver a 3D experience that far exceeds what a movie theater can offer.
All JVC 4K e-shift3 projectors offer outstanding 3D performance with minimal 3D ghosting & crosstalk. For 2014 it is now possible to use high speed Clear Motion Drive when watching 3D.

Lens memory makes it possible to maintain a constant viewing height with various aspect ratios. Movies can be viewed at the same height as network programming, but with an expanded width for a more engaging experience-the way Hollywood intended.
JVC has enhanced Lens Memory on all 4K e-shift3 projectors with increased precision. The DLA-X900RKT offers 10 Lens Memories to support the widest range of formats.
All JVC Procision projectors use a premium lens that offers both the highest resolution and the easiest installation.
Many home theaters have obstructions or other installation challenges. With a 100" wide screen, a 2X Zoom makes it possible to set up the projector as close as 11 feet or as far away as 23 feet. The 80% vertical and 34% horizontal lens shift enables far more flexibility in setting up the projector, as it allows the projected picture to be easily moved horizontally or vertically. As a result, the projector does not need to be perfectly centered with the screen. Motorized control of the zoom, focus and lens shift permits adjustment from the remote for easiest operation.
The DLA-X900RKT features a motorized lens cover that opens and closes in synchronization with power on/off to protect against dust. Even if the projector is installed on the ceiling, you are assured of easy, trouble-free operation via the remote control.
The DLA-X900RKT is licensed with the ISF C 3 (Certified Calibration Controls) mode, enabling trained professionals to calibrate the projector to specific screen surfaces, lighting environments and video sources. These precise settings are then stored in the projector to ensure reproduction of film or video content faithful to the source with excellent picture quality in all viewing situations.
The DLA-X900RKT offers THX 3D Display Certification. During the THX 3D certification process more than 400 laboratory tests are conducted. These tests evaluate color accuracy, cross-talk, viewing angles and video processing to ensure the high quality 3D and 2D display performance that home theater enthusiasts demand.
THX 3D displays offer a simple one-button solution for optimized playback of 3D and 2D movies - simply press the THX button on the remote. THX Cinema Mode is automatically selected with 2D sources to ensure that color reproduction, luminance, blacks, gamma and video processing matches what the filmmaker intended.
THX 3D Cinema Mode is automatically selected with 3D sources, which extends this same level of accuracy for 3D. THX 3D Cinema Mode is designed to deliver highly accurate color in 3D, while minimizing sources of cross-talk and flicker. For further fine-tuning, all THX Modes can be accessed by THX Professional Calibrators.
Color Management System
All 4K e-shift3 models feature a 7-Axis Color Management System. In addition to the ordinary 6-axis matrix of red, green, blue, cyan, magenta and yellow; a seventh matrix for orange is included. The CMS provides for precise adjustment of hue, saturation and brightness for each color to allow accurate calibration of the projector's color gamut.
The addition of the orange axis also helps pinpoint the color spectrum for skin tones. For improved operability, only the color being adjusted is shown on the screen while the others are displayed in black and white.
Advanced Convergence Adjustment
All JVC 4K e-shift3 projectors offer excellent alignment of the imaging devices as they ship from the factory. For the ultimate in alignment, installers and advanced hobbyists can utilize an advanced convergence adjustment that can be applied in increments of 1/16th of a pixel to any of 121 different zones across the screen.
JVC D-ILA projectors provide a range of predefined color profiles that offer faithful image quality with a wide variety of content.
Profiles were developed after analysis of film prints from major Hollywood filmmakers and other content, such as live concerts, animation, sports and music videos.
Screen Adjustment Modes
The quality of projected images varies depending on the type of screen and its RGB reflective characteristics. JVC D-ILA Procision projectors have screen adjustment modes that enable users to select the optimum mode to match those screen characteristics for more natural and balanced color reproduction. Users may select from up to 105 modes to match their specific screen characteristics. A current list of projection screens and their specific modes is available on from this link:Screen Model Chart
Clear Motion Drive 3
Clear Motion Drive 3 is the JVC 120hz high speed display process which is designed to improve video with rapid movement. For 2014, it has been dramatically improved and can now be used in 4K and 3D as well as Full HD. JVC has further enhanced its detection interpolation technology through high precision algorithms. Two modes are available to smooth motion in a wider range of video content.
