JVC 8K Projector Tech

JVC on Friday boasted that it has developed one of the highest-resolution video devices possible that could lead to advanced front projectors or DLP sets. A new D-ILA device is capable of generating an 8K picture, or 8192x4320, at speeds high enough for video. The sharpness amounts to 35 megapixels and is crisp enough to be 17 times sharper than the 1080p resolution used by Blu-Ray or other full HD sources; the resolution is also four times more detailed than the 4K used by very high-end projectors and cameras, and is even larger than Japan's experimental Super Hi-Vision, making it possible to display the 7680x3420 picture without multiple processors for the first time.

Despite the sheer increase in complexity, the device is said to be as good or better than most other projector systems in other categories. The device measures just 1.75 inches across but generates a high 20,000:1 contrast ratio and minimizes ghosting with a 4.5ms pixel response time.

The technology is still in a prototype stage and at its current size is most likely to use it for theater-level and otherwise very high end digital movie projectors; it will also be used to help develop 3D video and for more practical purposes such as medical research. [via Akihabara]
