JVC DLA-HD100 projector

The Japanese division of JVC has announced a new cinema projector, built to offer some of the highest specifications possible. The DLA-HD100 is 1080p24/50/60 capable, and can also be used to display in standard PC resolutions up to SXGA. Inputs include two HDMI ports plus component, S-Video and composite connections; control can be managed via RS-232C. The greatest feature however is its extremely high contrast, rated at 30,000:1, where many other top-end projectors rarely surpass 15,000:1.

The lamp in the HD100 emits 600 lumens, and is powerful enough to help the system cover a 100-inch screen from up to 20 feet away, or as close as 10 feet. Noise pollution is said to be 24dB. The performance of the system comes at a significant cost, however: when it ships to Japan in November, the price is expected to be 840,000 yen ($7,336). [via Akihabara News]
