JVC DLA-X500R Projector

4K Home Theater Projector
Calculate Throw Distance

From JVC —   The DLA-X500R delivers stunning picture detail at an unprecedented value thanks to JVC's exclusive 4K e-shift3 technology which accepts Native 4K 60P through the 4K enabled HDMI inputs and up-converts existing 1080P sources to 4K. The three discrete DILA devices in the DLA-X500R produce a stable image with no flicker and a class leading 60,000:1 Native Contrast Ratio for peak whites and deep blacks. For 2014, JVC adds an Intelligent Lens Aperture which results in a Dynamic Contrast Ratio of 600,000:1. While the DLA-X500R looks fantastic right out of the box, you can optimize it to your room by using the on-screen gamma control, 7-Axis Color Management System, High Precision Pixel Alignment and more.

  • Dynamic contrast ratio: 600,000:1
  • Native contrast ratio: 60,000:1
  • Brightness: 1,300 lumens

ANSI LUMENS  is the most commonly accepted industry standard brightness measurement. The ANSI lumen rating measures the brightest white that a projector can produce by averaging nine light meter measurements taken across the projected image.

Manufacturer Cited Brightness:

BUYER BEWARE   Either this projector's brightness specification does not cite an industry-accepted unit of measurement, or according to our calculations it seems unlikely that this projector is capable of producing the manufacturer's cited brightness specification.
