This issue is that some thing has to be drastically new and then be able to be improved gradually over say the next four years without a platform change. That or JVC dies.
A true 4K chip machine that is reworked in a year or so to handle the coming 4K blu ray standard etc etc. then adding e shift to bring it to fake 8K. The possibilities are endless.
A laser hybrid machine. These off the shelf modules would require the platform to be substantially revised for the blue laser pathway. These modules are very bright easily putting out 4000 lumens. that many lumens and your contrast goes to 20,000. so the trick is to reduce its output to say 1800 lumens and use existing II technology to give consumer something they will accept.
The third option is an LED machine of normal lumens. LED light because of a variety of factors appears brighten than the standard lumens. And it is brighter if measured correctly.
One of these things is going to happen with JVC. My bet is the third option.
