JVC's upcoming 55-inch set uses passive 3D glasses, gets Wi-Fi and apps

JVC this week announced an upcoming 3D HDTV it's due to release later this month, the 55-inch JLE55SP4000. Its 1080p, 120Hz panel uses passive 3D technology and the set ships with four pairs of the required, lightweight, and battery-free glasses. The HDTV also has Wi-Fi and supports Internet apps, with the process made easier thanks to an included remote that has a QWERTY keyboard.

Preloaded apps include Netflix, YouTube, Vudu, and Pandora. It also gets a Slingbox Player, making it the first TV with the out-of-the-box ability to stream content from a Slingbox in another room.

The panel uses edge LED backlighting for better image quality and low power usage. It has a dynamic contrast ratio of 20 million to 1. The XinemaSound 3D branded sound portion includes two 15W full-range speakers and a 15W subwoofer.

Connections include two USB ports, four HDMI inputs, one component, one composite and one antenna input.

The set is due to ship later in October for just $1,300.
