When I've seen the JVCs I felt the motion handling wasn't as good as the Sony (all processing turned off), and I think a few others feel the same, from what I've read.I'm not sure what you mean by JVC catching up with Sony in terms of motion handling, they both use variations of LCoS, so the native motion handling is essentially the same.
LOL, the Sony HW range have looked the same for the last 5 years at least, the VW range the same for the last 4 years and Epson TW and BenQ DLPs all look the same since time began. Have to say I'm more interested in the performance on screen, than how the case/chassis looks.Same boring boring JVC, Yawn! At least change the look... I predict them doing a "Panasonic" within 3 years
The Sony HW chassis dates back to the HW10 of late 2008, so 7 years and countingLOL, the Sony HW range have looked the same for the last 5 years at least, the VW range the same for the last 4 years and Epson TW and BenQ DLPs all look the same since time began.

Aye, I get that.HDR technically doesn't need to be 4K. They could release BD versions in 1080 HDR if they wanted to. But, they won't and it will be available with 4K only. The JVC projectors are 1080p native machines and they accept 4K/HDR signals.
The accessible way into the UHD market is with a UHD TV. Given the low penetration of projector ownership, even among forum members, it was always going to be a slow burn and premium priced to begin with unfortunately.Aye, I get that.
I think what I mean is that I might get a UHD player, and I might buy some of my favourite films on UHD disc, but I can't afford a 4K projector.
From what I can see it wouldn't be that expensive to add HDR functionality to the next generation of 1080p projectors - maybe something like a HDR-Sony HW40 for £2k or not much more.
That'd be a fairly accessible way to enter the UHD market. As it is, for projection systems, it's a complete waste of time unless you have £4k or £5K minimum to splash out on a new unit.
Yes and it was quite encouraging to read in cine4home's preview of the new lineup that the pj he tested measured right around the 1,700 lumen spec, calibrated @ D65. He did not specify but I assume this was at shortest throw.Good point Kelvin. Though in the past reviewers measuring the various models have generally validated the brightness/contrast differences spec'd by JVC between models.
