JVC 120Hz LCD Televisions

JVC on Monday released a trio of new LCD TVs designed for fast video response without a cost premium. The 42-inch LT-42LC95, 37-inch LT-37LC95, and 32-inch LT-32LC95 all use a new processing engine that refreshes the screen at 120Hz, double the minimum for HDTV sets. The extra speed helps with fast motion -- especially 1080i scenes, JVC said. Each TV is equipped with only one HDMI port but also ships with three of Japan's D4 digital inputs and comes with a hybrid analog and digital TV tuner for receiving over-the-air broadcasts. Individual component and VGA inputs are available for high-resolution analog sources, and a 20-watt speaker system are common for every set.

The smaller 32- and 37-inch sets are due to launch in Japan as of February for prices of $2,247 and $2,395 respectively; the higher-end 42-inch is due last in March for $3,060. All three are likely for a North American launch soon afterwards with component and HDMI connectors expected to replace the D4 ports.
