JVC Unveils RSVP2 Video Processor With HDMI 1.3 Compatibility, ISF, And THX Video Certification

[The following is a release from JVC Professional]

JVC enhances its ReferenceSeries home theater line with its RSVP2 video processor, to meet the most demanding professional audio/visual and home theater applications. The RSVP2 features four HDMI 1.3 inputs that process up to 1080p-24/25/50/60 and is THX Video Certified.

The RSVP2 converts standard definition, high definition and PC signals from a DVD player, Blu-ray Disc player, HD DVR, game console, or PC to any output resolution up to 1080p. The RSVP2 serves as your complete A/V hub, providing audio/video switching that simultaneously ensures A/V lip sync and allows a one wire connection to display for all your video needs.

“JVC’s RSVP2 video processor delivers the highest performance and sharpest HD images possible by utilizing features such as true 1080p HD that allows us to provide our customers with the highest quality home theater experience at an affordable price,” said Carl Mandelbaum, National Marketing Manager, Display Products, JVC Professional Products Company.

A feature unique to the RSVP2 is a “Color Gamut” menu with options for Wide, RS1, or RS2. This enables the operator to easily shift the output color space of the processor to match the SMPTE-C broadcast and telecine mastering standards most commonly used in production today. Color space is remapped inside the processor with a 3x3 “Look Up Table” (LUT) through a series of complex algorithms utilizing 14-bit processing. This ensures accurate color reproduction on either the DLA-RS1X or DLA-RS2 without additional contouring in the image.

This announcement follows the September launch of the DLA-RS2, the industry’s first home theater projector with a 30,000:1 native contrast ratio. The DLA-RS2 features proprietary JVC’s patented 3-chip D-ILA technology.

Key features of the RSVP2 video processor include ISF CCC adjustments with ISF Day and ISF Night modes to provide users with optimal settings, two programmable 12V Trigger inputs, upgradeable SD/HD-SDI dual input module, analog HD transcoding and processing and flexible input and output aspect ratio controls.

The following are the key video processing capabilities of the RSVP2:

* Display profiles for multiple display, frame rate and 10 image shift configurations
* 10-bit, 300 MHz instrumentation quality DACs (2x Oversampling for 1080p)
* Full-frame timebase correction
* High performance, multi-standard video decoder (10-bit: 480i/576i; 12-bit: 480p/576p/720p/1080i)
* Flexible digital and analog audio switching and routing - 4 HDMI audio/video inputs, 5 assignable audio inputs (4 digital, 1 analog) with 1 HDMI audio/video output and 2 active digital audio output
* High-quality super-adaptive comb filter with 2D Y/C separation

The suggested list price for the RSVP2 video processor is $3,695. The RSVP2 will be available in April. For more information about JVC’s D-ILA projectors and technology visit

Reason #85 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:

Well, I've always been attracted by the world of pleasures that we can get from good hi-fi systems and more recently by good home theatre equipments. I was only 20 years old (23 years ago) when I bought a pair of Kef 105.4 reference series loudspeakers at $2,000. At that time, I earned only $6,000 a year, and my mother thought I was really crazy to spend so much money. But I have never regretted it and it is the same for all I have bought since then (over $25,000...). More recently, I have discovered your Web Site on the net, and I must tell you that I was very impressed by this incredible DVD search engine. It was not long before I subscribed to your magazine. I have sent your Web Site address to many friends who share my love for home theatre. I'm happy to tell you that they are also very enthusiastic about it. There is nothing that comes close to it. I’m also impressed by the quality of the reviews; in particular the very detailed commentary about sound and picture. I store on my Pocket PC the Picture, DD, DTS and critics rating for all my DVDs (close to 300...). Now, I'm hooked on your magazine (as well as the Web Site), and I can say that I read from cover to cover. I was also impressed with the way you push forward HDTV and in particular, D-VHS. I MUST TELL YOU THAT WE NEED YOU AS MUCH AS YOU NEED US... I appreciate that you are not just doing your job. I can tell that you are really passionate about it, as I am. In fact, if I lived near you, I would love to be part of your team. So, if I had to summarize my thought about why I read Widescreen Review, I would say first that with your magazine and Web Site, I'm much better informed, so I can make smarter equipment and software purchases for my hard-earned money and second but not least, I feel that I am in a modest way, helping you do the work that is important to push forward (faster and better) the wonderful world of home theatre. Keep up the good work. I am a fan from Longueuil (near Montreal.
