JVC develops 4K resolution projector JVC Victor, the Japanese division of JVC, has developed a new D-ILA projector that is capable of displaying ultra-high resolutions images. The DLA-SH4K can produce images up to a large resolution of 4096x2400. This size is currently referred to simply as "4K", and is already in use with some special video recording equipment. It is likely it may also eventually replace the current standard of full HDTV, 1080p.
Along with the insanely high resolution of the JVC DLA-SH4K, the projector can also produce an impressive 3,500 lumens of brightness with a 10:000:1 contrast ratio. It sports 4 dual-link DVI-D inputs allowing for simultaneous displays from separate video sources at the same time. It does not have a HDMI input.

However, if you are already contemplating Googling up details on how you can buy one of these projectors when they are released in January, don't even bother unless you are filthy rich. The projector reportedly has a ridiculously high price of 15 million yen ($136,293). It also consumes just below 1.5kW of power.

These 4K projectors aren't meant for household use at this time. They're meant for movie theaters and large conference venues. One of our local AMC multiplexes has one of these 4K displays from Sony being installed.

I have the JVC D-ILA 1080P projector (DLA-RS1) on a 110 inch screen and it's great for HD DVD and BluRay. Their 4K product should be a good performer as well for any movie theater.
