JVC 4K2K To Cost You $15,000 JVC Super Projector Costs Five-Digits, Features 4x Full HD Resolution
ever. The JVC 4K2K D-ILA will be a professional-grade projector that
will cost $15,000. JVC is aiming the device at planetariums, museums and
simulators, as well as other enterprise applications. JVC has promised
'unsurpassed high quality imaging' for the five-digit projector.
The 4K2K is powered by dual 330W ultra-high-pressure mercury lamps
(read: not eco-friendly) which provide a total of 5,000 lumens of
brightness. The projector can be switched to a single-lamp mode, which
will consumer less power and extend the operating life of the projector.
Each lamp has a life of 1,500 hours, so theoretically, if you used one
lamp all the time, you could squeeze 3,000 hours out of it. In its
default dual-lamp mode, the 4K2K consumes 1.1kW of power.
JVC's wire-grid optical engine provides a 10,000:1 native contrast
ratio. The projector will bring you 10-megapixels of high-resolution
imagery. It has four DVI ports on the back and you can actually have up
to four separate WUXGA (1,920 x 1,200) screens on the projected image at
once. They've included an Ethernet port, and you can configure the
projector via a web browser, similar to a wireless router, if you're
familiar with that. The maximum resolution on this bad boy is 4,096 x 2,400.
Without a lens, it weighs 'only' (as said in the press release) 50kg (or
110 pounds). It's modular design lets you configure the projector in
interesting ways. JVC even says that if you stack two projectors
together, you can configure them for 3D use.
The 4K2K projector will be shipping in mid-March for the low, low price
of $15,000.Read | Or scroll down for further on topic reading.
