New JVC 1080p D-ILA Projectors

This site has moved to

JVC's new 1080p D-ILA Projector is looking very similar to Sony Qualia VPL-VW100 with one difference: it is made has a aluminum enclosure. The projector system comes in two incarnations:
DLA-HD11K with audio hub (or a cheaper video processor as I understand) and DLA-HD12K that is packaged with a video processor. The price difference between these two is some $5000. That makes me believe that the video processor does make a difference. Although, given that "lower-end" DLA-HD11K model costs only $15000 one would expect the greatest picture quality.
Ok, now some specs: both models are 1080p natively with 3 LCD panels. Processor boxes feature 4 HDMI inputs along with line of regular analog inputs. Input format varies from 480i to 1080i which processors scale up to 1080p/60Hz to feed the projector.
I should also add that each projector also can be purchased with a long or short throw lense to match your room dimensions and there is no extra charge for one type or another. Projectors with short throw lense are going to be available at the end of November and long throw DLA-HD11KL and DLA-HD12KL will hit the stores just before the end of 2005.
