    High-quality, Clear Picture with Brightness

    The maximum brightness of 1,800 lumens can be achieved with the combination of the 265 W ultra high-pressure mercury lamp and a highly efficient optical engine. Also, combining with the D-ILA device that features a narrow gap between pixels for optimum use of light, a powerful yet finely detailed and smooth image projection can be achieved.

    Realizing Images Full of Presence with D-ILA’s High Contrast

    JVC’s original D-ILA projector combined with an optical engine equipped with a wire grid results in a high native contrast ratio of 40,000:1. Input signals are analysed with an original algorithm that is combined with Intelligent Lens Aperture, which automatically controls the black level of the image to achieve a dynamic contrast ratio of 400,000:1. The synergetic effect based on the dynamic range stemming from high-brightness delivers sensational 4K video full of reality.

    Refined 0.69" Native 4K D-ILA Image Processing

    D-ILA projectors continue to evolve and the projection device is the heart of the projector. Like the DLA-NX9B, the DLA-N5 features an original native 0.69" 4K D-ILA device, which has been improved with process refinements on planarization and reflection efficiency to achieve higher brightness & contrast. Additionally, a dedicated driver LSI was also enhanced to simultaneously drive each of the three (RGB) native 4K D-ILA devices at high-speed 120fps. This ultra-high-speed driving is enabled by adopting the latest high bandwidth memory (HBM) technology and uses a silicon interposer to process a large amount of data. Furthermore, stable high-quality image projection can be achieved by equipping the new driver LSI with an original frame rate converter and various device correction functions. As a result, precise and smooth image projection unique to 4K native can be achieved with the combination of a new device and new driver LSI.

    A 6-axis matrix of red, green, blue, cyan, magenta, and yellow enables the precise adjustment of hue, saturation, and intensity. Only the colour that is being adjusted will be shown in colour while the others are grey-toned, making operation more intuitive.

    Equipped with All-glass, Wide-diameter, High-resolution Lens

    The DLA-N5 is equipped with a 17-element, 15-group all-glass lens featuring a full aluminium lens barrel. The DLA-N5 projects fully focused 4K native resolution images to every corner of the screen with the 65 mm diameter lens offering a wide lens shift of ±80% vertically and ±34% horizontally.

    Stately Form that Matches the New Generation Model

    Adopting the legendary centre panelling of the JVC D-ILA projectors, the new form has no decorative lines but only features simplicity for the pursuit of its functionality. The symmetrical design centred on the lens that is set in the core conveys a stately form with a sharp impression that fits the new generation models.

    Clear Motion Drive for Exceptional Motion Image Processing

    Motion Enhance technology optimally controls the driving performance of D-ILA drives by image characteristics, the projector is capable of reproducing much smoother moving 4K images. The custom interpolation algorithm reduces ghosting and has been overhauled to improve compensation accuracy in the periphery of intersecting objects. The improved algorithm now refers to more frames to increase the precision of motion prediction and also reduces frame latency. Additionally, when Clear Motion Drive is set to low, it recreates the natural 24fps signal processing adopted on films, while pursuing an effect like de-juddering without a sense of discomfort.

    Low Latency Mode Excellent for Projecting PC Content and Games

    An increasing number of new generation game consoles capable of outputting high-spec 4K game images are now available, which leads to increased demand among users who want to play 4K/HDR games on a BIG screen. The DLA-N5 D-ILA projector features an improved Low Latency Mode that ensures faster response with PC and game console content.

    High Dynamic Range (HDR)

    HDR (High Dynamic Range) content contains more data including an extended brightness range, 10-bit gradation, and a wide BT.2020 colour gamut. To precisely reproduce this content, the DLA-N5 has high-performance at its very core. With D-ILA projectors, HDR content is optimally reproduced with “high-brightness, high contrast, and wide gamut” to enjoy high-quality HDR content as you’ve never experienced in the past. Moreover, in addition to HDR10 content, which is found on UHD Blu-ray Discs, the projector automatically detects the Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) signal, a technology used widely in broadcasting, allowing the user to view it in an optimum picture mode.

    The Auto Tone Mapping function featured on the latest models automatically adjusts each content based on the values in the mastering data, such as Max CLL and Max FALL, which indicate the brightness of the HDR content. Image quality is automatically adjusted for optimal viewing of various HDR images with different brightness.

    Frame Adapt HDR

    The JVC DLA-N7 instantly analyzes the peak brightness for each scene and frame of content and automatically adjusts the dynamic range.

    1. Realizes images closest to the reality seen by our eyes

    The maximum brightness of each frame of HDR10 content is analyzed instantaneously by a unique algorithm, and the dynamic range is adjusted in real-time for optimal image projection. At the same time, it analyzes the saturation, hue, and brightness of the video data and performs optimal correction which reduces colour loss. As a result, even in the same content, darker scenes have deeper blacks, and bright scenes have higher peak brightness without losing colour, reproducing images close to the reality seen by the human eye, which has been difficult for conventional projectors.

    2. Compatible with any HDR 10 content

    The “Frame Adapt HDR” function makes adjustments based on analysis of the input HDR10 signal. Therefore, it can be effective not only for content with mastering information but also for content without. As a result, you can enjoy your HDR10 content with the most dynamic and high-quality image you have ever seen.

    3. Smooth gradation with 18-bit level gamma accuracy

    The gamma processing accuracy, which has been done in the past for 12-bit equivalent, has been improved to 18-bit and the gradation performance has dramatically improved. This reduces the banding effect in the bright part and the crushing of the dark part, reproducing accurate, smooth gradation which has been a task for HDR content.

    Multi Pixel Control

    All JVC D-ILA projectors feature the proprietary high-performance image processing technology, Multi Pixel Control (MPC) that detects blurring present in images taken from 4K cameras. An original algorithm analyses and corrects the image. The MPC is capable of accurate reproduction closer to the original. Compared to conventional band processing, MPC achieves a far greater depth of clarity from the 4K image by detecting and processing images in a higher frequency range to achieve exceptional presence and bokeh, creating an almost 3D feeling.

    Installation Mode

    The JVC DLA-N5 is equipped with "Installation Mode" that allows you to centrally manage settings related to installation in order to enjoy projected video best suited for your unique viewing environment. Nine settings for Lens Control, Pixel Adjustment, Mask, Anamorphic on or off, Screen Adjust, Installation Style, Keystone, Pincushion, and Aspect can be adjusted. Additionally, ten different mode settings can be stored in memory that can be named as desired and can be called up immediately.

    This model is licensed with the ISF C3 (Certified Calibration Controls) mode, enabling trained dealers to professionally calibrate the projector to desired screen surfaces, lighting environments and video sources, and then securely store these precise settings into the projector.
