Online translators sometimes warp meanings. Here's the gist:
There are 4 new models: DLA-X35, DLA-X55, DLA-X75 et DLA-X95.
The DLA-X55 is new and fills the hole between the previous X30 at 2999€ and the X70 at 6999€ from last year.
First whispers/rumours talk about an increase of contrast ratio from 50 to 60,000:1 for the low end model (I'm assuming X35) and 80 to 100,000:1 for the higher models (I'm assuming X75 - the X95 will go higher I assume as the X90 was 120,000:1)
Slightly higher light output is also rumoured. 3D system is switching from IR to RF. JVC hopes for better 3D with a minimum of defects.
E-shift will be available from the X55 model upwards. (So now there are 3 models with e-shift instead of 2).
Not yet confirmed but pricing is expected at 2999, 4999, 6999 et 9999€. Should be available in November.
Most of the content on the French page is a rehash of what e-shift is.
Probably the most interesting thing to note here is that it's possible that people will be able to get into X70 type performance as far as e-shift and contrast ratio is concerned in the new X55 model. Should save some people some money. The X70 had an MSRP of $7995 USD. The new X55 is rumoured to be 4999€ which is around $6165 USD. Time will tell.
