JVC 8K Projector to Ship in Japan, Double the 4K Fun
According to Engadget, the 8K Super Hi-Vision projector will soon start selling in Japan, under the name DLA-VS4800.
The DLA-VS4800 uses JVC’s e-Shift pixel technology, as well as a D-ILA display panel that projects two images. That’s what gives it the 8K label, but without actually increasing the pixel count. (It’s listed with a 4,096-by-2,400 resolution.)
Of course, there’s currently no content to test it out. The broadcasters have some time, though. Right now, JVC only has plans to sell the unit in Japan, limiting the audience even further with its 25 million yen ($261,000) price tag.
