What is the point with the 990?

Is not the assumption it would have a bigger bulb and more lumens?

Perhaps some facts are mixed up?

Really disappointing if true.


This seems to say that the 550 and 950 will be just like the 350 and 750, respectively, except for frame interpolation.


The 990 will have a bump in contrast over the 750/950, but that appears to be it.


I was hoping for a lot more out of this "higher end" model.

Well, it looks like I'll hold on to a projector for more than a year then. No upgrade for me unless some company other than JVC has something surprising.

Well I think all you RS20 should upgrade.
As for me I will use my RS20 for a little while longer

And you call yourself a salesman!!??



Seriously, it's clear we've not yet seen some important specs for this projector. Something significant has to justify the price differential.

Am I missing something or is the contrast spec lower than the 950's? I thought they were stating the 950 was 80K:1, while this looks like about 70K:1, which is more than a 10% reduction.


If they are charging about 1K more, it may be the lens. Guess we'll find out soon enough!

that depends if the 80k:1 for the 950 was a real figure or if it was gleaned from a pixie

The latest announcement has the CR and brightness spec's on the 550/950 the same as the 350/750.

Seems like they downregulated the HD950 and HD550 specs to 50k:1 and 30k:1 respectively.


My guess is that they will get upregulated again in time for CEDIA
, this is what happened last year, wasn't it? (HD750 at 30k:1 first and later -> 50k:1?)

Well we know that since JVC added the manual iris there quoted on/off contrast # is the iris in it's fully closed position. The Lumens are quoted in the iris fully open position. If the 990 could do 70,000:1 on/off @ 900 lumens, then JVC would have another winner on there hands. The 950 is probably around 50,000:1 with the iris open @ 1000 lumens.

It's probably more likely that the quoted numbers are extremes just like with the current gen JVC's - you can have either 900 lumens or 50,000:1 on the 950, but certainly not both at the same time. I'd like to imagine that the new models will be able to produce usable lumen levels at their max contrast settings, but the realist in me expects to see incremental increases in max lumens and CR, with the only major difference between the two generations being the 120Hz frame creation.


I'd like to think that, as others have speculated, that the 990 will offer a higher quality, improved optical path over the 550/950. If that's the case, could we also see an improvement in the 990's ANSI contrast or are the two unrelated in this instance?

Hi Mark. Here you go:

Quote:
You promised, here is a little more detail on the new generation of projectors D-ILA JVC.


In total, the range of Japanese consists of five models including two that you already know, the DLA-HD350 and DLA-HD750, two that you slowly start to discover (DLA-HD550 and DLA-HD950) and the flagship that Now you'll find under the name DLA-HD990.


So what is new?


The Clear Motion Drive is finally emerging. If you know the TV group, the technology you are not unknown. To answer including Epson and Sony, JVC includes a 100/120Hz treatment on the three new references (HD550 / HD950 and HD990).


ISF certification already on the HD750 will also be attributed to the DLA-HD950 and DLA-HD990


The Cinema 1 mode has supposedly been improved further to a refund even more natural and true to reality. Appears as a Cinema 3. (For the three models)


A fashion "Screen correction" will allow you to optimize your images on the canvas that you used. It remains a bit vague .. but the explanation will ...


No details on possible improvement of the device for the "alignment" of matrices.


In terms of specifications, I must admit that this is not the big slap and hopefully a notable visual changes will go.


HD550 : Take our good HD350 (1000 Lumens, 30 000:1 ,...) and add the news you mentioned above. (Except ISF, THX and CMS)


HD950 : The same thing, but with the HD750 (900 lumens, 000:1 ,...) with 50, I prefer to confirm, ISF, THX and the Color Management System


HD990 : A little change from the HD950 because it amounts to 000:1 and 70 wins a year warranty (so 3 against 2 ships).



Price level:


DLA-HD550 : 4999 € Black or White for mid September

DLA-HD950 : 6999 € Black mid September

DLA-HD990 : 8999 € Black mid October


While a small detail, this information may still be amended before the output.
