I agree, and it is quite a departure from the company whose marketing plan routinely boasted the highest native
contrast to incorporate this technology. But my point was that if you already have an existing JVC projector, it would probably be best to wait another year to see what has improved from a hardware perspective inside the projector rather than relying on new tech on current 1.4 HDMI / 1920x1080 hardware before spending another $5k, $8k or $12k.
And even if you are in the market for a new projector, I would personally caution against overspending on the best available 2k projector technology when we are at the precipice of what is likely to be a major industry conversion to a new native hardware platform. Even if my own theater was finished today, I'd be a complete bottom-feeder on projector, preamp and Bluray for something that would "get me by" at an acceptable quality level until all the new native 4K hardware with HDMI 2.0 spec will certainly be available by this time next year.
I guess the best way to describe it in the current market is that if you are looking at an upscale projector, would you rather spend $12k on JVC's best or $15k on Sony VPL-VW600ES which is a native 4K projector with HDMI 2.0? Smart money says the latter if you are looking to "settle down" with a projector for a number of years before upgrading.Edited by TMcG - 9/30/13 at 4:58am
