JVC DLA-RS3000 Projector Review – Picture Quality 2: 4K SDR and 4K HDR, HDTV and Sports.
While most Blu-ray UHD content is available in HDR10, a lot of 4K streaming material is still only 4K SDR. The DLA-RS3000 had no problems delivering sharp, detailed 4K imagery. While pixel shifting models do a very nice job emulating the original 4K content, when you do a side-by-side comparison with a true 4K projector, the resolution difference is truly noticeable.
The JVC DLA-RS3000 delivered one of the best HDR pictures I have seen from a projector. In most situations, the Adaptive HDR tone mapping feature combined with the Theater Optimizer did a great job balancing the need to deliver respectable full screen brightness while still producing bright highlight detail.
4K upscaling continues to be critically important because most TV shows and live broadcasts will continue to be produced in HD for at least several more years. The JVC 4K upscaling was excellent. Whether I was watching 720P sports form ESPN or 1080p Blu-ray Disc content, it looked very good. Most 4K movies do not have enough fine detail for a noticeable difference while watching 4K SR and HD. You can even fine-tune the amount of detail displayed using the Multiple Pixel Control settings, but I usually depended on the Natural modes default settings.
