JVC announced the release of two rear projection HDTVs based on the company's original D-ILA high-resolution microdisplay device.
The new sets are available in 52-inch (HD-52MD60) and 61-inch (HD-61MD60) sizes, support terrestrial, broadcast satellite and 110-degree CS digital high-definition broadcasts and feature Genessa "Image Intelligence".
JVC will market the rear projection HDTVs using D-ILA device as the Big Screen EXE series. The company has positioned the new sets as the third JVC option for large-screen flat panel televisions, in addition to the company's existing plasma and LCD television offerings. These products are designed to meet the rapidly growing demand for large-screen televisions in Japan, which has been driven by the widespread availability of terrestrial and broadcast satellite digital television broadcasts.
I. D-ILA high-resolution reflective liquid crystal device in a three-chip design
- Uniformly bright, smooth large-screen images:
The new sets use 1280 x 720 pixels, diagonal 0.7-inch D-ILA high-resolution device. The technology results in uniformly bright images. The wide viewing angle minimizes color variations when viewed from the sides.
- Three-chip design for naturally exquisite color reproduction:
The three-chip design uses D-ILA device dedicated to each of the red (R), green (G) and blue (B) components, which are combined using a high-efficiency optical engine for full color image projection. The three-chip design results in naturally exquisite color reproduction.
II. Genessa "image intelligence" high quality image reproduction technology
The image processing device, which determines image quality factors such as brightness and color reproduction, uses an integrated 32-bit CPU for image processing. JVC's original high-resolution imaging technologies have been refined over many years to delivery realistic and exciting high-resolution images. Exclusive technologies include Intelligent Gamma Technology for optimized gradient correction, and Color Creation Technology for vivid memory color reproduction.
III. 198-watt reduced power consumption, outperforming a 32-inch CRT television or 40-inch LCD television
IV. Flat design with less depth than a 21-inch CRT television, enabling compact placement in living room corners
The 61-inch (HD-61MD60) model has a depth of just 47 cm, which is less than the 48.2 cm depth of JVC's 21-inch CRT television. The side frame and rear design form a compact trapezoid, enabling the unit to fit in the same corner space as a 36-inch CRT television. The 61-inch model weighs just 46.3 kg, which is less than the 48.5 kg weight of JVC's 29-inch CRT television.
