Here at Roy Jowett AV we sell hundreds of home cinema projectors every year, and this is growing all the time. The sheer thrill of a bright, colourful, vivid large projector screen is quite simply an experience to remember. This is available to you in a simple to use, easy to set up, small and discrete package. It's easy to see why home cinema projectors are being used in homes up and down the UK more than ever before.
With our hot deal pricing, you are able to purchase an award winning, feature packed projector with a screen, that will thrill and delight, for less than £1000. The same hot deal pricing applies to all our home cinema projectors. So, if you really must have the latest feature packed projector, you can expect a truly breathtaking performance, previously not seen in other than the domain of professional screening rooms.
A tale of three technologies.
Home cinema projectors fall roughly into three categories: DLP, LCD and LCOS. These all provide stunning results, but each has a slightly different style of image
Projector brands using liquid crystal display technology include: Mitsubishi, Epson and Panasonic.
Simply put, LCD projectors work by splitting light from a projector bulb into three beams and passing this light through 3 LCD panels, red, green and blue. The LCD panels contain crystals which behave differently when an electric charge is applied, allowing for adjustment of the colours. This light is then directed out of the projector and onto the screen thus creating the image.
LCD home cinema projectors provide extremely cost effective, high resolution, visually stunning images. Some of the best selling examples include the Epson EW-TW5500 the Panasonic PTAE4000 Projectors and the Epson EW-TW4400.
Projector brands using digital light processing display technology include: Mitsubishi, Optoma, Themescene, InFocus, Sim2 .
DLP home cinema projectors work by utilising a digital mirror device (DMD). It's quite a simple concept really, a chip containing tiny mirrors (how many depends on the resolution of the projector) has a voltage applied to each individual mirror, making them 'tilt'. Light is reflected from these mirrors through a spinning 'colour wheel' (the number of segments in the colour wheel depends on the individual machine) and there you have it! It's not actually that simple but you get the idea!
DLP home cinema projectors give really 'top notch' performance, with a very smooth, 'filmic' picture quality. Best sellers include the Optoma Themescene HD20.
Projector brands using liquid crystal on silicon display technology include: JVC and Sony.
LCOS technology can best be described as a hybrid between LCD and DLP technology. LCD technology uses liquid crystals, which light passes through to generate the colours in the image; DLP reflects light off tiny mirrors, one for each pixel. LCOS combines these two methods by applying liquid crystals to a mirror substrate. As the liquid crystals open and close, the light is either reflected from the mirror below, or blocked. This modulates the light and creates the image.
The main advantages of LCOS technology are high resolution and an almost non-existent pixel structure (the visible lines-the pixel grid). This gives a very smooth and natural looking image, giving a cinematic feel. Plus, the LCOS technology doesn't use a spinning colour wheel like DLP.
There are variations of the LCOS technology, for example JVC's D-ILA, uses the same basic principals as LCOS but does not use organic material, which can decay over time, giving the projector a greater lifespan. The D-ILA technology also allows for greatly improved contrast, much like a DLP projector.
Typically, all our projectors now include high performance connections such as HDMI and can generally support a 1080p/24fps high definition input. The JVC DLA X7, Themescene HD87 and Mitsubishi HC4000 are three examples of full high definition projectors. One of the UK's favourite projector is the fabulous Panasonic PTAE4000 which has asserted itself as the most popular 1080p/24fps projector around.
As technology does not stand still for very long, JVC, Panasonic, Mitsubishi, Sim2 and Themescene have worked to support full high definition, 24fps and 'XVColor' technologies. They are now providing projectors at new ground breaking prices.
Another new exciting technology to hit the market is LED projection. The new Sim2 Multimedia Mico 50 LED Projector uses LED as a light array system - a brand new concept that promises a much higher lifespan than standard lamp projectors. With an estimated running time of approximately 50,0000 hours of LED lamp usage, you can be prepared for years of entermainment.

Panasonic PT-AE4000 (PTAE4000)
The PT-AE4000 projector demonstrates Panasonics ability to maximise the latest technology. Having perfected plasma and LCD television, Panasonic have now done the same with home cinema projector. The predecessor to the PTAE4000, the PTAE3000, was a superb projector in its own right, but now with the AE4000's subtle tweaks to the colour balance and improvements in the contrast and black level, makes this projector all the more irresistible. We have long felt that the Panasonic full HD, 1080p projectors are untouchable at around the £2k price bracket. This PTAE4000 hasn't changed our mind, it produces detail with colour and black levels capable of holding their own against much more expensive projectors. Throw in a super-easy menu system plus seemingly limitless flexibility and you have a projector that suits most, if not all situations. To read more about this offical press release on the Panasonic PTAE4000 please select here!
The PT-AE3000 full-HD 1080p LCD projector promises fantastic contrast, with a spec sheet performance rating of 60,000:1. A newly designed state-of-the-art optic system combined with advanced video processing technologies enables the PT-AE3000 to reproduce beautifully clear, sharp and immensely detailed images bursting with life. Lens memory facilities allow you to switch between 16:9 and 2.35:1 formats at the touch of a button, enhancing the home cinema experience to never-before seen heights from Panasonic's impressive 1080p range.
If you are looking for a sub £1k 720p projector then the Panasonic PT-AX200 seems like a 'no-brainer'. We had the PT-AX200 set up in our demo room on a permanent basis and we love it! Our customers love it! But why? Well, the PT-AX200 is bright, (in fact, it's one of the brightest 720p projector in our demo room!) but the black levels are not squashed. The black levels are very impressive considering the brightness, giving a real punch to the image. Sci-Fi fans will not be let down seeing the opening dark scenes of Star Wars for the first time on a 94" screen! The Panasonic PT-AX200 also caters for the growing popularity of big screen gaming, with its own separate 'game' mode. This impressive feature quickens the refresh rate giving a more fast paced and exciting gaming experience. The Panasonic PT-AX200's multiple awards speak volumes. This is one budget projector that should be on the shortlist of anyone looking to spend less that £1000 on a projector. Now Discontinued.

JVC took the front projector world by storm when they released the highly regarded and highly rated DLA-HD1 projector. They used D-ILA technology which delivered all the benefits of LCD and DLP, without any of the drawbacks. LCD projectors are bright and offer plenty of flexibility but struggle to reach the black levels and image depth of DLP projectors. DLP projectors are capable of creating very cinematic images, thanks mainly to the high contrast and deep black levels however they are generally a little more difficult to set up, as many lack lens shift.

JVC DLA HD550 Home High Definition Home Cinema Projector
Introducing the JVC DLA HD550 full high definition projector. JVC have had a difficult job to improve upon the multi award winning JVC DLA HD350. But they have successfully achieved this. The HD550 carries the same cosmetic looks as the JVC HD350, but this is where the similarity ends.
JVC have included an array of features and improvements on the HD550, which we can easily say makes takes this projector to a new level over the HD350.
When comparing the difference between the HD350 and the HD550 in our demonstration room it was easy see the differences. The colour pallet we felt was the most striking difference to the HD550, which in our minds even bettered that of the HD750 in some cases. The HD550 was able to create a pure white, which leads this projector to offer a real contrast boost over the HD550. The black levels are something special, which the HD550 also excels at, leading to a visually stunning black to grey pallet. JVC D-ILA projectors are renowned for their black level performance and shadow detail, the HD550 solidifies their reputation. The overall shaprness of the image is another area where JVC have paid attention to, with more detail being plucked from the source material than perviously seen from a D-ILA projector at thie price point.
We must congratulate JVC on their achievements on the DLA HD550. A truly remarkable projector with the high end performance to keep even the most demanding viewer entertained. Feel free to contact us on 01282 864048 for any further info.
JVC DLA HD950 THX Certified HD Home Theatre Projector
This JVC DLA-HD950 D-ILA projector represents a leap forward in projector technology. Offering picture performance you would usually associate with projectors costing much, much more, this JVC HD950 is the projector enthusiasts dream come true.
This projector boasts an exceptional contrast of 50,000:1 (native) and a deceivingly high brightness of 900 ASNI Lumens. These combine to give a life-like punch to the image that few projectors can muster. One of this projectors party trick, like all of D-ILA projectors, is its black level performance. This D-LIA projector is up there with the very best as far as blacks are concerned, but unlike lower quality projectors this projection unit can reproduces much detail in shadow areas, as opposed to projecting a black 'blob' on screen.
You can expect some of the sharpest and cleanest images available. Detail is plucked out of every last crevice and the HQV Reon-VX video processing does a remarkable job with SD material. We rarely see standard definition looking as good as it does with this projector. But we all know what this projector is really about it's full HD! It's quite obvious that this projector is 1080p, and it's 24p support allows you to maximise Blu-ray's potential.
Any techies' will be glad to know that this JVC DLA HD950 features on board RGB gamma adjustment, and the overall colour saturation-even out of the box-is leaps and bounds ahead of previous models.

It also an ideal candidate for professional calibration with an in-depth menu allowing you to achieve the perfect image.
With a smaller casing than its predecessors, the HD100 and HD1, the HD750 is more room-friendly! The HD750 looks good on paper, and we are happy to report that this has crossed over to real world performance that is hard to beat. The DLA-HD750's huge contrast ratio allows for VERY deep black levels, but the best part is that brightness isn't compromised; the high contrast and brightness giving a certain punch and cinematic appeal to the image which is comparable to only the best projectors in the price bracket. TXH certification is a testament to the consistently high quality image.

The DLA-RS1 is without a doubt the finest projector JVC has ever made for the consumer marketplace." When talking about the JVC DLA HD1's contrast, projector central said: "Few industry observers would ever have guessed that a D-ILA product from JVC would be the first product in the marketplace to achieve a genuine 15,000:1 contrast, without the fudge factor of a dynamic iris no less. And the RS1 (DLA HD1) is indeed capable of producing black levels rivaling the best in the business". Moving on to the sharpness of the JVC HD1, they had this to say: "In the final analysis, the JVC RS1 surpasses all of the 1080p competition when its natural, filmlike characteristics are taken into consideration. This has always been the latent strength of JVC's D-ILA technology, and it shows itself in spades on this projector. For our taste, JVC has achieved the perfect balance between image sharpness and a natural, lifelike quality." The JVC DLA-HD1 has well and truly met the approval of there trusted reviewers and many other industry experts. (Note: The DLA-HD1 is marketed in the US as the DLA-RS1)
