Barco, a global innovator and industry leader in digital visualization, is pleased to announce its cooperation with professional electronics company JVC on the implementation of JVC‘s D-ILA technology. The offspring of this deal is Barco‘s recently launched LX-5 projector, which was showcased at recent Integrated Systems Europe in Amsterdam in January.
“The use of JVC‘s D-ILA technology enables the LX-5 to have a supreme 10 megapixel resolution and unrivaled color accuracy, thanks to the display technology‘s high contrast (10,000:1) capabilities,” explains Peter De Meerleer, Director of Product Management at Barco, “This allows true, natural black levels and an enhanced color gradience, and helps the LX-5 to create an image quality so natural that it rivals human perception of reality. The LX-5 is bound to become the projector of choice for ultra high-resolution applications.”
“We were very pleased to team up with Barco,” adds Keiichiro Doi, JVC‘s chief technology officer, “because we knew that Barco is a historically established top performance projector manufacturer with the right know-how to leverage our 10 megapixel D-ILA technology, and the right savvy to make this high resolution concept a success. The time is now for LCoS technology to conquer the market, and thanks to the partnership with Barco, we can make it happen.”
The LX-5 is already fully available for sales. Visit www.barco.com for more information.
