JVC Projector Firmware Update Delivers Significantly Upgraded HDR Performance

New Frame Adapt HDR analyzes HDR10 content frame by frame and automatically optimizes brightness.

LONG BEACH, Calif, September 5, 2019 – Underscoring its commitment to offer the best possible home theater experience, JVC today announced a firmware update for its line of Native 4K D-ILA projectors that delivers a significant advancement in HDR performance. JVC will demonstrate this feature at the 2019 CEDIA Expo, September 12 - 14 in Denver at booth 2536.

This feature forward update adds JVC’s new Frame Adapt HDR function, which dynamically analyzes HDR10 picture level frame by frame and automatically adjusts the brightness & color to optimize HDR performance for each frame.

Because content brightness varies, a fixed setting cannot deliver optimum image quality. JVC’s new Frame Adapt HDR solves this by instantly analyzing the peak brightness of each frame or scene using a proprietary JVC algorithm, and adjusting dynamic range to provide the best possible HDR image. Frame Adapt HDR works with any HDR10 content, even content that does not contain brightness metadata (Max CLL/Max FALL).

MAIN FEATURES

1. Delivers images closer to reality

Dynamic range is adjusted in real time for optimal image projection. At the same time, saturation, hue, and brightness is analyzed and optimal corrections are made, which reduces color loss.

As a result, even within a single program, darker scenes have deeper blacks with enhanced color. Bright scenes have higher peak brightness without color loss while maintaining black level. All content is reproduced closer to what the human eye can see.

2. Compatible with all HDR10 content

Frame Adapt HDR adjustments are based on analysis of the input HDR10 signal. Therefore, it is effective on content with or without mastering information. As a result, all HDR10 content can be enjoyed with greater dynamic range and image quality than ever before.

3. Smooth gradation with 18-bit level gamma accuracy

The gamma processing accuracy, which in the past was based on 12-bit equivalent, has been improved to 18-bit and as a result gradation performance is dramatically improved. In any given scene, it reduces the banding effect in the bright portions and the crushing of dark portions. This provides accurate, smooth gradation along with higher average peak level brightness and increased color saturation, which has previously been a challenge with HDR content.

Other Improvements

* Support for 16x9 content when using a Panamorph Paladin DCR lens (adds Anamorphic D). It is now possible to leave a Paladin DCR lens in position and view both ultra-wide and 16x9 content correctly.
* Auto Calibration support for Spyder X sensor.
* Adds new presets to screen adjustment function.

The firmware will be available for download at no charge in October for the DLA-NX9, DLA-NX7 and DLA-NX5 as well as the DLA-RS3000, DLA-RS2000 and DLA-RS1000.

Sounds awesome.

Guess JVC owners won't need the new madVR ENVY hardware now for HDR.

Mark thank you for posting this this seems like an angel coming down from heaven to give projector owners truly transforming HDR. Now just to get that second job so I can afford a JVC NX7. It will be worth it.

Wow this is massive news.

Can anybody say Nail in coffin?
Let's hold that eulogy for a couple days. We don't know what the Epson projector is going to do tomorrow. I know it's probably not going to come true but maybe JVC did this because they know the new Epson projector is going to have Dynamic tone mapping, a laser with 3000 lumens and Native 4K all for $8,000

Maybe their processing capabilities aren't up to the task, or just a matter of development resources? Not sure.
Correct. Do not know yet if the 4500 will even be able to do this. Anything before these new models does not have the horsepower, from my understanding.

Honestly it should be possible in the RS4500. It is already doing frame by frame measurements to manage the dynamic laser dimming and gamma adjustments with the dimming. The HDR tone mapping is basically the same thing - it just uses the same measured data to adjust the gamma on the fly. This should be possible on the RS4500. More likely it's a memory issue that some other feature may need to be removed to make space on the flash chip.

Will this be the official thread for this update? So that interested people can just follow a single thread instead of trying to keep up with xxxxx many threads?

I don’t see why not. Since it’s first, duplicate threads will be merged with it.

There were already a number of posts about this topic on the "Official" thread for these projectors. So this is not really the "first". Now this makes an extra one that I have to keep up with. I'd rather have it all in that thread.

Oh well OK. Not sure what to tell ya. This thread will be tied to a homepage post so it’s not going anywhere. ;)

This is the first official thread dedicated to just the upcoming firmware update. It makes sense to have just a JVC 4K projector Firmware thread since it is easier to read reviews of the update here once it happens than searching through that voluminous owner's thread. Since the posts here should hopefully just be about the firmware update it will be extremely narrow in scope. Thanks again Mark.

Thank you Mark Henninger AVS forum Editor. This thread is exactly where it should be. Should be a nice quick easy way to obtain info about the firmware updates instead of searching in the rather intimidating owner's thread.

I agree that they should be able to add the DTM, but JVC may not be able to add the anamorphic D mode.
