D-ILA Projector Series
Ultimate High Dynamic Range
8K. LASER. HDR
Enhanced Industry-leading HDR Performance with the Latest Signal Formats including HDR10 Plus
HDR (High Dynamic Range) drastically improves expressive power of images
When it comes to reproducing the rich video information of HDR content, including the extended brightness range, BT.2020 wide colour gamut and 10-bit gradation, rely on one of the new D-ILA projectors. New models support all HDR formats including HDR10 for Blu-ray and streaming, HLG for broadcasting, and the latest HDR10+ signal format with dynamic metadata compatibility.
Support for two dynamic tone mappings
JVC projectors are compatible with the two dynamic tone mappings of HDR10+ and Frame Adapt HDR. HDR10+ contains the metadata of the producer’s intentions for each scene, and with such data, the projector is able to automatically reproduce images as the creator had planned. Frame Adapt HDR instantly analyses the peak brightness in HDR10 content using an original algorithm, and adjusts to the optimal dynamic range for image projection. Even content without mastering information can be analysed based on the input signal, so all kinds of HDR10 content can be viewed with optimal picture quality.
In HDR10, the basic standard for reproducing HDR content, there are only two pieces of information: MaxCLL, which represents the maximum brightness of the content, and MaxFALL, which represents the average maximum brightness. However with HDR10+, the luminance information for each scene is embedded in the content as metadata, which allows for scene-specific tone mapping and faithfully reproduces the HDR image intended by the creator.
As described in the graph, HDR10 only contains static metadata, which can cause certain scenes to be too bright or too dark. On the contrary, HDR10+ contains dynamic metadata, specifically peak luminance information for each scene, making it possible to control the optimal brightness according to the scene and display the content with optimal brightness.
Frame Adapt HDR
Theater Optimizer for optimal reproduction of HDR content suitable to each environment
Brightness of the projector screen varies depending on the screen size, gain, frequency of use, and set tings. JVC projectors intelligently adjust tone mapping so that the content can be viewed at the appropriate brightness by automatically analysing the environment in which the projector is used, simply by entering the screen size and gain information under Theater Optimizer in the Frame Adapt HDR picture mode. This ensures reference picture quality at the appropriate brightness, suitable to each custom home theatre environment.
JVC projectors featuring Frame Adapt HDR and Theater Optimizer can express HDR/HDR10+ content at optimum brightness and darkness in each scene as the creator intended.
