It’s not going to win any beauty pageants, nor will the boring model number stick in your head, but the new DLA-SH7NL projector from JVC will make you wish you had $15,000 to blow on a new toy. It uses a set of 330W ultra-high-pressure mercury lamps to kick out 5,000 lumens of brightness, with a 10,000:1 contrast ratio. And as for resolution, the DLA-SH7NL is capable of projecting a 10 megapixel or 4,096×2,400 image, but since most people don’t have a 4K source, it can also simultaneously project two or four HD images (1,920 x 1,200) thanks to its four DVI input connections.
It’s also equipped with a network connection allowing you to adjust the projector’s settings from a web browser, and it can even email you maintenance notifications like when it’s time to replace the lamps or important error messages. And that $15,000 price tag? Just keep in mind that doesn’t include the DLA-SH7NL’s short-focus or telescopic lenses which are both sold separately.
