It's cut in half. So there is still a delay, but much less. Well worth it for the picture quality these units put out. Neither the Epson or the Sony will have a better picture regardless of the sync times they have.
You can't compare an old 2K projector with a 4K projector using HDMI 2.0 and 18Gb/s.
The delay for my JVC macro is set to 6 secs for my rs2000, vs 20 secs with my rs500.
I've set the delay in the JVC macro to 6 secs to make sure it doesn't miss a single sync as it can vary depending on source, resolution etc. The actual sync time without this safety headroom is closer to 5 secs, so I consider it fixed. It's the same time my LG 4K monitor takes to sync.
Sure, instant sync would be great, but coming from 20 secs, I'm happy that my JVC projectors doesn't take longer to sync than my LG 4K Monitor.
I have a complex chain with a Maestro and an AVR between the source and the PJ, so it might even be faster in some situations.
HDMI 2.1 might improve this a bit further, but that will take a couple of years and will mean replacing the whole chain, not just the PJ. Until then, I'd say it's as good as it gets on a 4K projector. Well done JVC!
Thanks Guys!Sync delay will never be like it was with your RS-1. So if waiting until it gets there, will be a forever wait.
You are making me spend money. Hopefully after the HT reno is finished I can then plan on a new NX5 or 7.
I already made provisions for the much larger projector.
