We know that JVC has modded their projectors with lasers. Both a 1080p demo a long time ago and a 4k demo that you can see on youtube. Do you think JVC could "steal" the first laser home theater projector from Sony?

JVC always try to beat the competition to something. Like they did with the 3D projectors, then the e-shift. Hopefully, they got something new for CEDIA

I am sure they will have something new and improved, that is their business model. Will it be laser? I doubt it but JVC will play it close to the vest until the day of the show for whatever reason they employ that strategy.

JVC is coming out with a laser projector for the successor of the VS2200 which is the same chassis as the consumer lines with a target date of early 2015.

Interesting to note that the VS2200 has a contrast ratio of 18k to 1 and the laser light one has a contrast ratio exceeding 20K to 1. Doesn't seem like contrast takes a hit, but improves a little bit.

Lumen output seems similar to current models at around 1200 lumens.


It's safe to say we wont see it for 2015 but should see it by 2016 for consumers.
