JVC D-ILA 4K Chip

JVC this morning revealed a new breakthrough for its D-ILA projection technology that could make greater-than-HD video a reality in home theater. A smaller 6.8-micron pixel pitch and a smaller 0.25-micron gap lets the Japanese firm create a chip less than 1.3 inches across that can still deliver a full 4096x2400 resolution -- offering 4K resolution at a physical size small enough for projectors beyond the industrial-scale units often seen today. The use of new liquid crystals also cuts out wasted light and delivers an exceptional 20,000:1 contrast ratio, according to JVC.

At the present, JVC expects the new D-ILA invention to find its way into professional projectors such as those for computer 3D modeling and simulators. As the technique is based on the same technology as its home theater projector and TV sets, however, the company hopes to bring a resolution four times that of 1080p to more compact projectors that may ultimately involve home theater units once movies and TV venture beyond current standards.
