JVC PROFESSIONAL EXPANDS D-ILA SYSTEM LINE-UP RESTRUCTURES PRICING ON POPULAR HOME THEATER MODELS

Systems to Offer High Performance DVDO® Processor
Orlando, FL (June 7, 2006) — At InfoComm 2006, JVC Professional Products Company announced new, more flexible and more economical D-ILA projector systems, along with a price restructuring of all of its popular front projection models. Three new systems are being introduced, in partnership with Anchor Bay Technologies, developer of the DVDO high performance video processor. JVC continues to offer its 1080p models with a state-of-the-art processor co-developed in conjunction with Faroudja. This brings to 10, the total D-ILA front projector packages offered by the company, priced from $6,995 to $21,995.

"This new pricing gives JVC a competitive position in the market, while providing our customers an affordable home theater option with the best picture quality. Our popular DLA-HD2K model is now available with DVDO processor for under $12,000 retail," said Carl Mandelbaum, National Marketing Manager, Display Products, JVC Professional Products Company. "We're known in the marketplace for providing the highest quality home theater projection systems. Joining forces with DVDO further strengthens our mission to provide the most affordable, high quality projection solutions available."

"With the addition of the DVDO processors to our line-up, we now provide a more economical, well rounded home theater system line-up," said Carl Mandelbaum, display products national marketing manager for JVC.

JVC's renowned DLA-HD2K projector was one of the first models in the industry to feature native 1920 x 1080 chips. Since its introduction 2 years ago, the projector has become a favorite in Hollywood screening rooms because of its silky smooth film-like reproduction. This past year, JVC introduced the DLA-HD10K, available with both long throw and short throw lens options as well as improved contrast ratio and greater color accuracy. With restructured pricing on the HD2K, and with more flexible processor options, both models are expected to gain popularity in the highly competitive home theater marketplace.

"Our innovative DVDO processor technology is the perfect complement to JVC's D-ILA projectors," said Gary Chappell, Senior Director, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, DVDO. "We're honored that JVC chose our processor to be implemented in their DLA-HD10K and DLA-HD2K projectors, both companies are sure to set a new precedent for providing high quality HD video performance at a price that is affordable."

In addition to the new pricing on the DLA-HD2K and DLA-HD10K, JVC has also lowered the price of its popular DLA-HX2U from $8,995 to $6,995.
