JVC DLA-RS2 Shadow Details 6

This image of the resort at night looks great, but when you click on the image below, you’ll see a significantly overexposed version. Look to the bushes, and most importantly the building’s roof. I can tell you that only the JVC so far, has done better (very slightly) on that roof. Perfectly good projectors like the Panasonic, Sanyo and Optoma HD8000 try hard, but the roof detail is virtually non-existent. Watching any of those, and you would likely think it’s a flat roof that you can’t see.

This next image is off of the DTS demo disc. This scene from a bazaar, offers rich colors, high contrast, with plenty of dark areas, as well as very bright ones. The same image is found in most reviews done in 2007.

Bottom line: The JVC exhibits excellent shadow detail. Although no one expects it to reveal more in the darkest areas than the Sony, they are more different, than better or worse. In real life viewing though, the blacker blacks of the JVC do make for a better, more striking image.
