JVC DLA-RS10 Projector Review

First, here are the color temperature measurements for the Cinema 1 “best” mode.

These are the measurements, taken “right out of the box”:
30 IRE (dark gray) 6387K
50 IRE (medium gray) 6357K
80 IRE (light gray) 6293K
100 IRE (white) 6181K

Those numbers are not too far below the ideal 6500K, however, a quick adjust of the color offset setting for red, to -2, and blue, to -1 improves that notably, our post calibration settings much further improve the image.

With Red offset at -2, Blue offset at -1
30 IRE (dark gray) 6476K
50 IRE (medium gray) 6493K
80 IRE (light gray) 6372K
100 IRE (white) 6196K

For those interested, here are the color temperature measurement for white (100 IRE), for each of the five preset modes

Cinema 1 6181K
Cinema 2 5176K
Natural 6209K
Stage 7288K
Dynamic 8179K

JVC DLA-RS10 Basic Settings

In addition to calibrating Red Green and Blue for a correct grayscale balance (6500K), there are a number of other settings that come into play. Typically Contrast and Brightness (white balance and black balance), need to be done first. Color saturation and gamma also need adjustment.

Our final settings (the default settings for Brightness, Contrast, Saturation and Tint are all 0, in all modes). Mike made adjustments to these, and the Color Temp settings for each of the seven modes:

Cinema1 Cinema2 Natural Stage Dynamic
Contrast = (0) -2 -4 0 -2 -3
Brightness = (0) 1 2 2 4 1
Color Sat. = (0) -3 -3 0 0 10
Tint = (0) -3 -3 0 0 0
Color Temp 6500 5800 6500 7500 High Bright
Gamma Normal A Normal C C

Lamp Mode=High (unless noted otherwise)
Iris fully open: 3
All other settings at default (untouched)

 

 

Zoom set at mid-point for all measurements

Note, the JVC does not have User savable settings (you can customize all modes).

You can put in the settings you want, but there is no “Save function” that can be recalled, after changed. Thus, if you have customized, Cinema 1, for example, then decide to change it’s color temp, it will remember the new setting but it will forget the old settings you had put in. Be sure to jot down all of your settings as you customize a mode, or use a User mode. Otherwise, you might try adjusting something, not like the result, and not be able to remember what the old setting was.

You can also use the 3 User modes to keep settings in, so you could, for example “duplicate” the settings you end up with for Cinema 1, in User 1. Then you can tweak all you want in Cinema 1, knowing that you can recall your initial adjustments when needed.
