JVC RS4500 (native 4K laser projector)

JVC RS4500 (native 4K laser projector)
« on: October 22, 2016, 08:16:16 AM »
At CEDIA JVC introduced a native 4K projector. Interest in this projector was very high. People have been waiting and wanting a JVC native 4K projector for several years. On top of that this projector has high lumen output.

10/22/16 additional information.
The RS4500 will let you do the following:
· Three power mode settings (33%/66%/100%). You have this in conjunction with the manual iris. This should give you a huge range of light output adjustment.
· Two Dynamic Laser Dimming modes (pure Laser, or Laser with gain) that will work with all content including UHD/HDR.

The dimming feature has not been functional at any demo so far.

All previous models could only switch to Gamma D when an HDR signal was present. The RS4500 will instead switch to a full HDR preset which can include BT2020, Gamma D, specific laser/lens settings and a variety of other picture parameters. This is what we have been looking for. Once set up, this should be our plug and play mode for 4K.

The RS4500 does not have any form of E-shift.

It's a long wait for this projector to come out, considering the anticipation !!  :)

JVC is reporting the projector is still on track for the us. I also checked on the Chief mount for this product. Chief is reporting mid to late December for the custom mount. Chief does have a current mount that will work. It is the VCMU: http://www.chiefmfg.com/Products/VCMU

It is rated for 250 pounds, so 90 pounds will not even make it break a sweat. :)

I'd love to try and calculate how future-proof this projector might be, especially not having to buy bulbs.  If I think I might keep it for ~15 years (I had my last projector for almost 10 years...buying a new bulb every year), I just might justify the cost!

What I don't like is that when the life expectancy of the bulb is reached...it is not replaceable. I don't want to buy a disposable projector. :(

Why is it disposable? While you can't replace the light source like you can with a lamp based projector, you could send the projector back to JVC and have them replace the light source. Beside, by the time you wore out the light source, the projector would be so obsolete that it would be long past time to replace it.

I didn't know that, I was told in the past that the LED projectors did not have the option of having the light source repaired by the factory...that changes my opinion 100%. Are all LED projectors the same (major manufacturers), or is it just the high end models? I run 2000-5000 hours per year on my projectors currently...if the light engines are replaceable then it makes this a possiblity for my next projector as long as the lumens are enough. :)

The light source is replaceable, just not user replaceable, on the JVC.

On other forums, people are thinking they are seeing the finished product. That is not the case. Hardware wise, I am sure it is the finished product, but changes/improvements to the RS4500 software/firmware will be ongoing, right up to ship. This is no different than it is for any other new model JVC brings out.

I am hearing that sync times may be a little better with the RS4500 compared to the existing RS600/500/400, but we will have to wait until there are production models available to confirm.
