JVC Goes All 15,000:1 contrast ratio With DLA-RS1 Home Cinema Projector

Think you’ve got the best home-theater projector? WRONG! JVC introduced the DLA-RS1 projector today, which among other technological profundities, hits “a previously unattainable native 15,000:1 contrast ratio without the need for dynamic iris or other artificial means of contrast enhancement.”

It’s part of the company’s Reference Series and uses a 0.7-inch full HD (so up to 1080p) D-ILA (Direct Drive Image Light Amplifier) chip technology in a design that eliminates the need for a mechanical spinning wheel, stamping out any possibility of a rainbow effect.

Some other product highlights:
* Wide Lens Shift Range (V: 80%, H: 34%)
* Zoom Lens with 2x Throw Ratio (1.4:1-2.8:1)
* Various Input Signals (2xHDMI, Composite, S-Video, Component)
* Fan Noise (27dB)
* RS-232C

It won’t be available till Q1 2007 at an MSRP of $6,295, so you’ll just need to chill for a month or two with that unwatchable 10,000:1 projector you’ve been using.
