Established in Yokohama, Japan in 1927 as the Japanese subsidiary of the U.S. firm, Victor Talking Machine Company, JVC is a company that manufactured phonographs and pressed the first record in Japan. JVC’s outstanding offering of both hardware and software production capability is what made this brand strong and still developing in this current market. Subsequently, as evidenced by the production of the world’s first VHS video deck, JVC developed into a leading technological innovator in the audio/video industry, creating new products that are a step ahead of the times for an international audience.
In 1926, the “father of TV” Kenjiro Takayanagi, who became the first in the world to successfully project an image onto a cathode ray tube, joined JVC after World War II. Involved in the commercialization of colour TVs and the development of the two-head helical scan system, his legacy later became the foundation for JVC’s videocassette recorders.
The world’s first VHS format video recorder developed by JVC and introduced in 1976, eventually became the de facto world standard for video, and spawned an entirely new cultural phenomenon based on visual communication. JVC innovations in video continued, with the introduction in 1984 of the world’s first single unit video camera/recorder and in 1995 with the introduction of the world’s first pocket-sized digital video camcorder.
JVC Americas Corp and Kenwood USA Corporation merged operations in 2014, forming a single subsidiary in the United States, JVCKENWOOD USA Corporation. Today, JVC continues its record of innovation, with its 4K e-shift D-ILA home theatre projectors, rugged HD Everio camcorders and a wide range of premium quality headphones, JVC is definitely not a brand to miss when it comes to audio and visual entertainment.

D-ILA, or Direct-Drive Image Light Amplification, is JVC-developed technology that delivers unmatched performance, with natural colour reproduction. Images produced with this technology is so smooth that it rivals film, and does justice to the most demanding program material. Since JVC launched its first D-ILA projector 1997, the technology has been employed in the creation of the cleanest, sharpest, most accurate image of today. Currently, some of the industry’s most sophisticated projectors from the most respected manufacturers are using this D-ILA technology licensed from JVC.
A type of liquid crystal technology, D-ILA is very different from the liquid crystal display (LCD) technology found in many products today. D-ILA is what’s called liquid crystal on silicon, or LCOS, but JVC made several improvements to basic LCOS technology to develop D-ILA. At its heart is the D-ILA device, or chip, designed and manufactured by JVC. Every JVC D-ILA projector uses three D-ILA devices, one each for red, green and blue – the three colours that are combined to create the full colour palette. This in order creates ‘film-like images’, as well as ‘screen door effect’ (a shadowing image on the image caused by the spaces between the pixels) that looks as if you’re looking at the image through a screen door. JVC’s D-ILA is often used in traffic tower controller training, airline pilot training, night vision simulation, large venue screening, Hollywood post production screening rooms, high-end 4K and 2K video projections.
JVC uses its expertise in audio and visual development in its product making which becomes the set of tools that are used for professional video recording and filming.
