Any bets on JVC ... LED or 4K announcement ?

I think it will be a tough sales year if JVC doesn't do either real 4K or LED

I would think LED would help the most, since these awful bulbs should have gone bye-bye years ago

any odds ??? ... opinions ??? ... of something big being announced in next 3 weeks

They won't do LEDs because they are a step backwards in light output. There are no other major benefits other than longevity to the LEDs. My guess is laser, 4K native chips or a simple refresh of their 1080p eshift line. Most current JVC owners will not buy a new unit if this is just a refresh year.

I'd love a pj with a different light source as long as the contrast ratio and everything else stays the same or improves. Bulb based is annoying. I'll take a different light source over true 4k without hesitation.

give me the led/laser light source, that delivers the same native contrast as the x35(or better), and instead of a DI, use dynamic dimming to get the same results without the noise or delay of shutting a physical iris.


4k will be nice, when I have 4k content. until then, instant on/off, no dimming over time, and fades to black that actually fade all the way to 'off' will give be a lot more enjoyment than upscaling my blurays into a non-native resolution

Maybe for you, Craig. I have a bunch of stuff I have to do till next weekend. That will leave me with just a couple of days before the show. Heck, I still don't have a hotel yet.

My new favorite game is Save The Titanic

Sales guys can't wait. August is a slow time in the HT industry for projector MSRP $3000 and above sales. Cheaper projectors do sell in anticipation of the fall sports schedule. After Cedia, preorders and orders (depending on projected shipping dates) start pouring in.

Since I plan on buying a new PJ once a year, I would prefer more lumens to a 4K upgrade. A new light source could mean that. When 4 k movies become widely available, 4k will be welcome in my house.

According to Ron Jones, JVC is not holding a Cedia press conference this year. Although there are a variety of reasons that could be possible for why they are not doing it this year, Ron's best guess is that they are not introducing a native UHD chip machine this year nor any alternative to bulb light source machine. Modest improvements over last year's machines are expected though.

Blee ( a friend) thinks the JVC machines are already GREAT and that implicitly its OK to maintain the status quo. If there are no significant improvements, flip sales will be hurt immensely severely impacting sales by JVC and their resellers.
