The JVC DLA-X7000 is the first unit to come out of the company’s anticipated new range of “D-ILA” projectors. It has taken the firm two years for the range to come out into the market. Instead of delivering the devices as just a refresh, it does make one think as to what the company’s engineers would have improved upon their new line of projectors, especially when it is known that JVC does make quality beamers. For this particular unit, it adds high dynamic range (HDR) support to the already high contrast image quality, as well as the “e-shift” technology.
The JVC DLA-X7000 Brings in HDR Support
In a design standpoint, the JVC DLA-X7000 has remained consistent with the company’s other beamers, however, it doesn’t mean that everything’s the same. For instance, there the addition of extra cooling fan vents that are used to accommodate the even-brighter lamps. But it still comes with the usual glossy black finish, a central-mounted lens, and a slightly elliptical body. This is not the most glamorous design that you can find on the market, but there’s a pleasing aesthetic look about it. For its external looks, it brings about a certain kind of seriousness, like a device that wants you to know that it can handle a lot of stuff.
Connectivity-wise, it has a fairly amazing set of connections. Even though JVC does include the usual two HDMI ports, of which both are the latest HDMI 2.0a specification, they do offer the capability of handling 18Gbps of video data. Furthermore, both of these ports on the DLA-X7000 are compatible with the HDCP 2.2 4K/UHD anti-piracy protocol, as well as having support for 10-bit, 4K/60fps, and HDR footage. To put things into a simple perspective, there is nothing within the AV world that can currently throw at this projector that it cannot handle.
Standard picture quality is visually stunning, and it is an absolute joy to watch your favorite TV shows and movies on a larger screen format while making use of this unit. At its price point, the X7000 gives you the “bang for your buck” advantage. Take in the additional advantage of it having a Low lamp mode and you will enjoy a practically quiet experience.
While the JVC DLA-X7000 does have support for HDR, it doesn’t mean that it can cast perfect images with it. There are some HDR picture quality issues, and what’s more is that there is practically no way to turn that feature off. Therefore, if you’re not a big fan of pictures having too much “pop” in them, then you might find this bit as an annoyance.
