No, I assume the images were taken like for like.  Yes, you are right that any image manipulation like what you described will definitely change the outcome but it will also render the comparison moot! :)

Top picture one softer (likely upscaled).

Bottom picture clearer, details intact, and subtitle text looks original computer generated (my guess is 1080 source direct)

Good point! Let's just say that there is no manipulating or photography tricks at work here. What you see is what you get. Still your answer is the same - i.e. top image is 1080p (source direct) and not 4K upscale?

This experiment highlights that we will not notice the difference when watching a movie.

Yes and no...yes, the difference may be negligible in certain respect. More importantly is how big and far away from the display you are looking at. The ability to "resolve" the pixels and resolution is less critical as the viewing distance becomes further away from the screen.

The image comparison is to showcase the ability of the new JVC N series projector's capability of doing source direct vs 4K upscaling of 1080p content to near 4K quality w/o the use of their renowned "e-Shift 4K" technology. This is something that many existing JVC X series users would like to know...While I may not release my review but I'll let picture speaks for themselves.

Hint: If you have sharp eye, there are at least 3 spots you can spot the difference. I will circle them for you to make comparison with the other image later. If those who cannot spot, then 4K projector with upscaling capability may just be a gimmick for you. For those who can spot more than 4 "spots", then this JVC native 4K projector may just worth your time. :P

To prove that the 2 images are outputting different resolutions. See the info panes for details.


At 4K upscale from a 1080p source


At 1080p Source Direct - outputting 1080p
