The True Black HD1 brings full-HD to your home with the industrys highest native contrast ratio: 15,000:1. The native means that it does not rely on an iris mechanism to maximize contrast depending on the average brightness of one scene. This technical slight of hand, employed on other projectors, effectively changes overall luminosity, so that blacks are slightly bleached in bright scenes, while light colours appear duller in dark scenes.
There is neither iris mechanism nor compromise in the True Black HD1 projector. D-ILA is a mature technology, perfected by JVC, which can reproduce the brightest, most vivid colours simultaneously with the subtlest shadows, down to the deepest, truest blacks. Only D-ILA can reproduce in full the rich image information contained in a high-definition source, be it broadcast or optical disc.
Setting up a home theatre system may sound daunting, and in the past it may have been. But JVC has incorporated into the design of the True Black HD1 projector several ingenious features that make setup flexible and easy. Take, for example, the lens shift function. Its generous ±80% vertical range means you can install the projector on a table, the floor or the ceiling, and still position the picture just where you want it. The same intelligent projection system offers a ±34% horizontal shift, so you do not have to have the projector directly in front of the screen either.
Installing a projector on the ceiling has usually been problematic because of the top cooling vents, but JVC has put both air intake and exhaust vents on the front of the unit. You can thus place the True Black HD1 projector right up against a wall, or even tabletop.
