JVC will not announce anything early, but I would not be surprised if JVC did have a true 4K projector at CEDIA. Question is, what price point?
If they have the 4K projector and the same price point as current models I will be floored. In my opinion they would be shooting themselves in the foot especially with the gains made with the RS500/600 models .If they do introduce a 4K at the lower price point, Sony will be floored and so they should. My guess is if JVC does bring a 4K to the table and that is the only gain over the RS series I would expect it to be between the price point of the RS series and possibly lower than the VW665ES. If Sony wasn't there at this high mark I'd guess JVC would be up there themselves. It's all a guessing game until the fall, will be interesting for sure .
