4K has quickly become the high definition standard of choice for serious home cinema fanatics, but the choice of screening options for those who prefer a projector has been frustratingly sparse. That’s why we’re excited to see JVC launch the DLA-Z1, billed as the word’s smallest native “D-ILA” device.
Available in the UK from November, the JVC DLA-Z1 is all about the quality of the image. JVC’s previous efforts reportedly suffered from poor brightness and the “Blu-Escent" laser light source built into this projector is said to get around the problem.
4K is clearly he future of home entertainment, but until recently, home cinema fans had limited choice in terms of content and screens. With the number of 4K Blu-Ray discs on the increase, and streaming services such as Sky Q and Netflix HD offering the ultra-high definition service via broadcast, the content side is looking very healthy. JVC launching a projector of this quality opens up the option for those home cinema lovers who don’t want a TV, and will hopefully signal the start of a flood of comparative kit that will improve the quality and price point for those in the market for a 4K projector.
