JVC has launched a cutting edge app that allows owners of their D-ILA video projectors to control the devices from their iPhones or iPads.

The app is available through the iTunes store and allows anyone with an iOS device – including the iPod Touch – to use the device as a remote control for the projector.

Via the app, the users will not only be able to operate basic remote functions, such as input selection, but it will also allow them to perform more advanced actions, including colour selection, operation of the 3D setting and making adjustments to the viewing distance calculations.

The app is compatible with the DLA-RS46, DLA-RS48, DLA-RS4810, DLA-RS56, and DLA-RS66 Reference Series projectors.

Grant Clauser, the technology and web editor at industry resource, Electronic House, said that they believe the app is the first of its kind but will likely make a very big and valuable difference for its users. He said, “The new app does more than just turn the projector on and off. It allows for deep menu adjustments and calibration control.”

JVC has said that the app provides user friendly sample pictures and flexible control when the user is within range of a WiFi network.
