8K Projectors

There sure is a lack of 8K projectors in the world today, but that will change over the next couple of years. Look for the Olympics to be broadcast in Japan and other places in 8K! We’ve seen 8K demonstrations at trade shows. Digital Projection (a high end projector company) has shown a native 8K projector for over a year now. It is interesting in that it really is for 4K projectors in one to achieve “native 8K” and that is legit. JVC is now shipping a native 4K projector that will support 8K content, in the same fashion that many native 1080p projectors support 4K.

8K will be a major challenge for projector manufacturers. It means packing far higher pixel density into each chip/panel. For this reason, for the next few years, expect most 8K capable projectors to be pixel shifting 4K projectors, rather than native 8K. No matter. The promise of 8K on the screen is another game-changer. There is no reason why you can't sit four or 5 feet back from a 150-inch screen. Talk about full immersion! Unfortunately as of today, the least expensive 8K capable projector is still cost-prohibitive. That will change, however. We could've said that about 4K just five years ago, and now 4K capable projectors are now available below $1000 for the most entry-level models.

In September 2021, JVC announced a new series of 8K D-ILA home theater projectors. While the units still utilize native their 4K DiLA panels they employ an improved version of JVC's pixel-shifting technology called 8K e-shiftX to deliver 8K onscreen resolution. Unlike the previous 8K e-shift model, the RS3000, also include 48Gbps HDMI 2.1 inputs so the new models can accept and display 8K/60p and 4K/120p material.

Hopefully, other projector manufacturers will soon follow JVC’s lead and begin to offer 8K models (either native or pixel shifting) by the time that there is more 8K content available.
