The Skinny: Bolstering the company’s line of projection solutions, JVC’s Visual Systems has announced its BLU-Escent line of laser-hybrid projectors.
The Specs: JVC Pro explains the laser-hybrid products are designed for rigorous applications and provide users a choice of solutions that requires less maintenance than traditional lamp-based projector products.
“The simulation and training industry has been eager to see projection solutions that offer exceptionable image quality with long life and a reasonable price point,” says Jack Faiman, senior vice president, JVC Visual Systems Division. “We think the DLA-VS2500 and DLA-VS2300 perfectly hit this sweet spot.”
The line includes four models:
- DLA-VS2300G fixed lens
- DLA-VS2300ZG zoom lens
- DLA-VS2500G e-Shift optional fixed lens
- DLA-VS2500ZG e-Shift zoom lens
JVC Pro says the DLA-VS2500 and DLA-VS2300 use three, 0.7-inch 1920×1080 D-ILA chips. The VS2500 comes equipped with JVC’s e-Shift technology that shifts the image by a half pixel in the diagonal direction at 120Hz to provide a 3840 x 2160 (UltraHD) resolution.
Solutions: The DLA-VS2500 and DLA-VS2300 are said to be the first three-chip laser hybrid projectors specifically designed for simulation, and JVC Pro points out the products have been designed to meet FAA Level D and ICAO regulatory requirements.
