JVC LX-NZ30 4K GAMING PROJECTOR ANNOUNCED AT CES 2023
With the announcement of the JVC LX-NZ30 laser gaming projector, video gamers and movie lovers can come together around one fantastic projector. This new 4K JVC projector brings to the table the low latency and high frame rate support of a gaming projector with the picture quality and details of a home theater projector.
We had our fingers crossed that JVC would be announcing a UST. Alas we'll need to keep waiting for a JVC ultra short throw projector.
The 2023 JVC LX-NZ30 is the upgraded version of the JVC LX-NZ3. And there is a lot to get excited for over this new projector.
JVC LX-NZ30 Features
While it doesn't have the 8K quality of the JVC NZ7, the brand new JVC NZ30 has the specs to perform beautifully in a variety of environments.
Bright Laser Light Source
With a 3300 lumen laser single laser light source, the high brightness of this projector allows you to use it rooms with higher levels of ambient light, especially when paired with an ambient light rejecting projector screen. It also increases the peak brightness during HDR projection giving users a wider dynamic range to enjoy. This is 300 lumens more than the previous model.
The JVC NZ30 uses a new 105W blue laser diode assembly which replaces the previous 95W design, making it possible to achieve higher brightness. The proprietary BLU-Escent laser light source powers this model. This JVC laser projector is rated at having a 20,000 hour long lamp life.
Incredible Picture Quality
This 4K projector offers an superbly detailed image with over 8 million individual pixels to create a sharp, beautiful picture on your screen. It utilizes the 0.47" DMD chip and four-way e-shift to create the projected image.
The new JVC LX-NZ30 projects HDR content with sharp, higher-quality, dynamic images. In addition to HDR 10 used in the ULTRA HD Blu-ray format, the projector supports HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) used in broadcasting.
The laser light source controls the light output instantaneously, providing dynamic brightness adjustment with less delay compared to a mechanical aperture. By controlling the output of the laser according to the brightness of the scene, the JVC LX-NZ30 is able to produce fantastically deep black levels.
Lightning Fast Lag Time For Gaming
The new projector supports up to 1080P/240Hz input with latency as low as 6.25ms. This would make it one of the fastest gaming projectors available. This helps the JVC NZ30 deliver the absolute smoothest motion on the largest projection screens.
This bright, laser projector should be a top choice for the new Xbox and PS5 consoles.
We would have liked to see a 2.1 HDMI port for 4K/120Hz gaming, but even without it the LX-NZ30 is fantastic for gamers.
Ease Of Installation And Connectivity
One of the great things about the 2023 JVC NZ30 is the ease of installation. The super bright light source makes it easier to deal with ambient light in well-lit rooms. So this projector isn't relegated to a dark basement.
With a lens shift of ± 60 percent vertical, ± 23 percent horizontal, and 1.6X zoom for installation flexibility. The extensive geometric correction options make this projector even easier to install.
In addition to dual HDMI Inputs (HDCP 2.3, the LX-NZ30 offers a variety of new connectivity options:
· The DisplayPort 1.2a input terminal allows direct connection from a PC equipped with that terminal and supports a wide range of resolutions and refresh rates
· USB* Direct Connect
· Both RS232C and LAN Control Ports
· 12V Trigger Port.
The JVC projector’s compact size (15 7/8 inches wide, 13 1/16 inches deep) making it easier to install and gives it an extra level of portability. It also comes in two colors allowing you to pick the color that best matches your room's aesthetic. The JVC LX-NZ30W which is white and the JVC LX-NZ30B which is black.
How Much Will The JVC NZ30 Cost?
The JVC LX-NZ30 will retail for $3,499. This is a very reasonable price given the features of this 4K gaming projector, especially when you consider it will the same price as the older JVC-NZ3. If you're looking for a high quality projector on a budget, this would be a great choice.
