Last month, we’ve blogged about the DLA-HD250/250Pro high-end projectors JVC introduced on the American market. In Japan, home theater freaks will soon [JP] be able to lay their hands on two D-ILA branded projectors that both can produce 3D images and feature full HD resolution, the DLA-X7 (in black) and the DLA-X3 (in black or white).
The main difference between both models is that the X7 boasts 70,000:1 native contrast ratio while that of the X3 stands at 50,000:1. The X7 (pictured again below) also has LAN and a number of analogue PC ports the other model doesn’t have.
Both projectors feature 1,300 lumens brightness, come with two HDMI (CEC) interfaces and a 220W lamp that lasts 3,000 hours, according to JVC. 3D glasses have to be bought separately.
The company plans to start selling the projectors in Japan in December. And quality has its price, namely $10,400 for the X-7 and $6,050 for the X-3.
As reader ohotos points out in the comments, both projectors have been announced by JVC in the US already (sorry about that). Available in late November, the X7 will have a list price of $7,995, while the X3 will be sold for $4,995.
JVC’s PK-AG1 3D glasses ($179) and the PK-EM1 3D signal emitter ($79) that are compatible with the projectors will go on sale at the same time.
