I am not a reporter and there are other organisations reporting on the CES but just had to mention a demo that JVC gave that I was able to attend.

It was in 3 parts.

1. Their high end 1080P DILA front projector. The IQ on what looked like a 120" screen was amazing - no pixel structure and incredible blacks

2. Their top end 4K projector!  This is 4120x2400 image and was projected on a 16:9 screen which seemed to be about 150" wide. The image recorded from a 4K JVC video camera was astounding - much better than film that I have seen in the local Wellingto mutiplexes

and the piece de resistance

3. 4K 3D - we were asked to put on some pretty cheap cardboard 3D glasses and treated to a 4K 3D image courtesy of 2 of the projectors shown in 2. The image was from an upcoming 65mm iMax 3D movie about to be released. Words can't describe how realistic that was - much better IMHO than what I saw in Avatar 3D iMax which I saw recently here.

Clearly we can't afford 2. and 3. but 1. is in the ballpark for some geekzoners I guess (though not me alas)

Do you know if the 1080p projector is their current top end (hd990/rs35) or a new one?

I think it was the HD990 from I recall. Wish I could afford one of those!
