JVC debuts giant 110-inch projector TV

JVC 110-inch DLP TV

JVC finished its week this morning by introducing the largest rear-projection set ever. The HD110-MH80 is also likely the largest consumer TV to date and promises a 110-inch diagonal viewing area, eclipsing both Panasonic's 103-inch plasma screen as well as Sharp's 108-inch LCD. The size is manageable in part due to the set's processing hardware, JVC says. Its internally developed D-ILA technology scales the native 1080p resolution to enhance its detail even at the large size and also boosts contrast to a practical 5,000:1. The TV maker's current Genessa processor also helps remove jagged edges or noise and fine-tunes color output with 14-bit precision. A bright 110W lamp keeps the image visible in brighter environments.

Input for the set is provided through dual HDMI output for full HD signals; component, VGA, and Japan's D4 format provide analog HD, while S-video and four separate RCA inputs cover standard-definition video. JVC further sets out the TV as a stand-alone device with two integrated 10W speakers, analog and digital TV tuners, and dual i.Link (FireWire) ports for watching home movies directly from a video camera.

Pre-orders for the HD110-MH80 begin in July, but actual shipments of the display will take place in October. Pricing for the main set is likely to reach an equivalent of $52,787 but will also require special accommodations in the house itself, the company says: at 728 pounds, the set must have a strong supporting floor and may need extra reinforcement depending on the house.
