JVC projectors, HDTVs

JVC launched three new HDTV sets at the CEDIA Expo -- the 37-inch LT-37X898, the 42-inch LT-42X898 and the 47-inch LT-47X898. The sets include Clear Motion Drive II, designed specifically for full HD (1920 x 1080) displays, purportedly improving motion detection fivefold compared to the original high speed driver. CMD II uses a frame doubling driver (120Hz) and motion interpolation. It also uses a 10 bit IPS LCD panel, which renders more than one billion colors. Other specifications include a contrast ratio of 2000:1, 4.5msec response rate, 500cd/m2 brightness, and a 178-degree viewing angle. The 37-inch LT-37X898, the 42-inch LT-42X898 and the 47-inch LT-47X898 will sell for about $2,100, $2,600 and $3,300, respectively. The company also dropped two new 1080p home theater projectors that deliver a native contrast ratio of 30,000:1 without inflationary tactics like a dynamic iris.

The projectors use a 0.7-inch full HD D-ILA, with three separate D-ILA devices: one each for red, green and blue. The projectors also offer HDMI 1.3, improved color rendition by broadening the color space, a motorized Fujinon 2x zoom lens, and customized on-screen gamma control. The projectors offer a 1920 x 1080 resolution. The 2x zoom lens made by Fujinon Corporation features a large-diameter, all-glass lens assembly with 16 elements in 13 groups. The projectors also feature 80 percent vertical and 34 percent horizontal lens shift and manual adjustment of gamma via the remote control and an on-screen display.

Both projectors also offer a V-Stretch function for the projection of extra wide screen anamorphic movies. The DLA-RS2 will be available through JVC Professional Products Company in November for less than $8,000. The DLA-HD100 will be available through JVC Company of America in November, also for less than $8,000.
