The JVC DLA-X3 Full HD Projector could be a winner for anyone with a soft spot for 3D and massive screen sizes.
Want to blast 3D images onto a screen in your living room and watch your 3D Blu Ray discs like you’re at the cinema?
Well, perhaps this will tickle your fancy… the DLA-X3 from JVC is based on their D-ILA optical engine and can do Full HD (1080p, 1920 x 1080) resolution with a projection throw of 60-inches to 200-inches and a contrast ratio of 50,000:1. So now you have alternative to the 72-inch LED LZ9700 3D TV for enormous 3D images!
Of course, new kit like this usually comes with a hefty price tag and the DLA-X3 is no exception. It costs in the region of £3,500 which may sound a lot, but it’s about half the price of other 3D projectors.
But, hey, when we’re talking about cool gadgets and 3D gizmos, what’s a little price tag between friends? If your Blu Ray player of choice is a PS3, you could presumably spin a game disc and have fun shooting aliens to pieces in 3D on a screen size of up to 16 FEET in diameter!
The connection on the projector is for HDMI 1.4a, so I’m not sure if the PS3’s HDMI would suffice, but I expect so.
Also available in the range are the DLA-X7 (approx £6,500) and DLA-X9 (approx £9,500), which are both THX certified. The DLA-X7 boasts a contrast ratio of 70,000:1 and the DLA-X9 has contrast ratio of 100,000:1
The projectors are compatible with JVC’s PK-AG1 active shutter glasses and PK-EM1 3D signal emitter which keeps the 3D image projection in synch with the glasses.
