JVC develops smallest ever 4K2K D-ILA chipset

June 25th, 2007 · No Comments

JVC has developed the smallest 4K2K D-ILA device yet. 43 per cent smaller than previous LCOS-based 4K2Kchipsets yet offering a 20,000:1 contrast ratio, this next generation Direct-Drive Image Light Amplifier offers 4096 x 2400 resolution (more than four times the number for Full HD and a perfect match for 4K digital cinema projection) in a 1.27-inch form factor. The device also boasts a pixel aperture of 93 per cent, which means virtually zero visible grid structure.
The company also says that by using new liquid crystals, plus an innovative crystal orientation technology, it’s been able to eliminate scattered and diffracted light, which in turn contributes to the enormous contrast ratio. JVC says that the unit incorporates technologies derived from its lauded DLA-HD1 D-ILA home cinema projector. The 4K2K D-ILA chipset was unveiled at the Infocom 2007 international audiovisual trade show at Anaheim, California. No products employing the device have yet been announced.
JVCs D-ILA project began in 1996. The company developed the first 7.86-megapixel (3840 X 2048 pixels) 4K2K D-ILA device in 2000 and began supplying projectors for research applications in March 2001.
