Audio visual industry experts have heaped high praise on the latest projector offering from JVC, declaring that the company is continuing to have the Midas touch when it comes to projectors.

The Japanese electronics giant's latest model is the DLA-HD550 – the little brother model to the much-lauded DLA HD950 that was released in January. Reviewers for tech site,, said everything about the projector was worth recommending.

"Set-up is ingeniously simple thanks to motorised lens, shift and zoom controls that let you get the picture in place within seconds, all using the remote control," they said.

"And the HD550’s picture is, frankly, amazing: the signal is served up in a style unrivalled in this class."

The image provides plenty of insight, boring deep into facial expressions and background details, and shows particular attention to both bright colours and dark hues, ensuring that there’s no shortage of texture and nuance to whatever image you are watching.

It does not falter at fast movement, delivering both depth and detail, even in light environments, where bright whites combine with a crisp, sharp picture construction to create brilliantly realistic images.

The projector comes with two HDMI inputs, along with all the other necessary connections, lurking on the side. It works on JVC's Direct Drive Image-Light Amplification technology, using three D-ILA chips in every projector, which offer 1080p resolution, to deliver the maximum brightness possible.
