JVC is awarded 5 Stars after reviewing our DLA-NP5 4K projector.
“The DLA-NP5 is JVC’s most affordable D-ILA projector for 2022 – and with JVC’s cheapest laser D-ILA models setting you back well into five figures, we have a funny feeling that interest in the lamp-based NP5 could be seriously high. Especially now that the ‘Covid years’ have given us all a whole new appreciation of the value of a high-quality home entertainment system.” JVC DLA-NP5, What Hi-Fi?, 07/2022
4K Native Resolution
Equipped with refined 0.69″ native 4K D-ILA device and newly developed digital driver LSI for native 4K resolution.
D-ILA projectors continue to evolve for the better. The latest three models feature an original native 0.69″ 4K D-ILA devices, which were first adopted on model DLA-Z1; this device has been improved with process refinements on planarization and reflection efficiency to achieve higher contrast and brightness. Additionally, a dedicated driver LSI was also enhanced to simultaneously drive each of the three (R/G/B) native 4K D-ILA devices at high-speed 120fps. As a result, precise and smooth image projection unique to 4K native can be achieved with the combination of a new device and new driver LSI.
Renowned JVC Lens
Impressively, the new JVC NP5 uses the same renowned lens you’ll find in the JVC NZ8 and NZ7. Featuring a motorized focus with 2x optical zoom and motorized lens shift capabilities of 80% vertical lens shift and 34% horizontal. The JVC NP5 can produce an image size between 60 to 200 inches, suitable to create the big home theater picture.
High-quality, Clear Picture with Brightness
The JVC-NP5 offers a 1900 ANSI lumen output creating an incredibly bright image suitable for home theatre systems.
Images Full of Presence with D-ILA’s High Contrast
An outstanding 400,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio is featured on the JVC-NP5.

JVC'S High-Speed LSI
The JVC NP5 features High-Speed LSI for 4K/120p input and video processing. This makes the NP5 ideal as a gaming projector.
HDMI 2.1 Input
The JVC NP5 is equipped with two HDMI 2.1 inputs. The HDMI 2.1 inputs include HDCP 2.3 and 48Gbps bandwidth capable of 4K/120Hz signals and low latency mode, ideal for gamers.
High Dynamic Range (HDR)
Support for HDR (High Dynamic Range)
HDR (high dynamic range) content contains more data including an extended brightness range, 10-bit gradation and a wide BT.2020 colour gamut. For this reason, high basic performance is required for precise reproduction by the projector. With D-ILA projectors, HDR content are optimally reproduced with “high-brightness, high contrast, and wide gamut” to enjoy high quality HDR content as you’ve never experienced in the past. Moreover, in addition to HDR10 content, which is found on UHD Blu-ray Discs, the projector automatically detects the Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) signal, a technology used widely in broadcasting, allowing the user to view it in an optimum picture mode.
The latest JVC NP5 is HDR10+ compliant, reproducing images as close to the creator’s intent as possible, creating an image like never seen before. The JVC NP5 also takes full advantage of JVC’s Frame Adapt HDR. This technology adds dynamic tone mapping to each scene.
