JVC launches HDTVs with built-in iPod docks

JVC iPod HDTVs

JVC today launched a major update to its HDTV lineup that includes four of the first full-size HDTVs to include their own iPod docks. The LCD P-series incorporates a cradle for the Apple player in its base that not only plays music, photos, and videos directly from the device but integrates with the TV as though it were a native device. A special menu appears to control the iPod's content using the remote; users can also fine-tune playback and adapt video either to expand the video to fit the set at each clip's native aspect ratio or use a special "small mode" that maintains the pixel resolution of the source. The dock will also charge any connected iPod whether or not the TV is switched on.

With the exception of the 720p-native, 32-inch LT-32P679 model, most of the P-series (available in 42-, 47-, and 52-inch versions) runs at a native 1080p and includes a USB connection for viewing photos from cameras or flash drives. Three HDMI and two component inputs provide HD signals while analog audio out lets users route audio from the iPod or the set itself to a separate sound system. The 32- and 42-inch (LT-42P789) screens ship in March while the 47-inch version (LT-47P789) ships in April; shipments of the 52-inch LT-52P789 will take place over the summer. Prices will be set closer to the actual release date.
