JVC Procision LT-47X898 LCD HDTV
The Basics: JVC’s Procision line represents the company’s highest-end offerings in both the TV and projector markets. These products were developed for the custom-installation and high-end consumer channels, and they feature JVC’s most advanced technologies. First and foremost, in the case of this 47-inch 1080p model, is the inclusion of Clear Motion Drive II 120Hz technology, which doubles the TV’s frame rate from 60 to 120Hz to reduce motion blur. The TV also uses JVC’s 32-bit Genessa processing chip and a 10-bit panel, and features a number of advanced picture controls.  The Theater Pro II menu offers advanced color, detail, noise-reduction and gamma controls. The energy-saver control is actually an adjustable backlight. Smart Picture adjusts the image’s brightness, based on the average picture level of the content, while the Smart Sensor adjusts the image’s brightness based on your room’s lighting conditions. ...

JVC HD-65S998 HD-ILA HDTV
The Basics: We’re not sure if JVC plans to add any new models to their line of HD-ILA rear-projection televisions, which are based on LCOS technology, so the HD-65S998 and its little brother, the 58-inch HD-58S998, could represent your last chance to get a big-screen JVC RPTV. This 65-inch, 1080p model includes a number of advanced features and technologies, including JVC’s 32-bit Genessa processing chip with Digital Image Scaling Technology and a five-point color management system. The TV uses three native 1080p D-ILA devices and a new optical engine designed to reduce cabinet depth and improve image contrast. The company’s “HD Range 150 MHz Digital Super Detail” is a focusing technology designed minimized motion blur and thus improve detail in faster-moving scenes. This rear-pro has an adjustable iris to lower the light output, and Smart Picture adjusts the image’s brightness based ...

title: John Landis On The Sound Of "An American Werewolf In London" category: Feature Article review date: October 2001 reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein John Landis On The Sound Of "An American Werewolf In London" "An American Werewolf in London" broke all kinds of conventions when it was released theatrically in 1981 – it had makeup effects so good that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences had to instate a new category to honor it and it forever changed the way comedy and horror were allowed to combine onscreen. The collector’s edition DVD issued as "Werewolf" turns 20 continues the movie’s unconventional bent. It’s one of the few films to have its director/writer – John Landis – actively involved in the full sound remix and it’s also one of the few films originally made in mono sound that actually sounds better (not just broader) when adapted for the new 5.1 technology.

JVC LT-42X788 LCD HDTV
Introduction It’s time to buy a new HDTV and, after much deliberation, you’ve decided on a 42-inch flat panel. Little did you realize that your decision would inspire so many new questions. Needless to say, there are a few flat-panel models to choose from in the 42-inch category. As you walk that crowded retail floor, I want you to stop for a minute, take a good long look at yourself in that reflective plasma screen or glossy LCD frame, and ask yourself this: Do I really need 1080p in my new 42-inch TV? It’s an important question, one that will ultimately dictate how much you spend on the TV. Choosing 1080p over 720p can add from $500 to $1,000 to the bottom line; yet, purely from a resolution standpoint, 1080p’s benefits in a 42-inch or smaller panel are questionable. At an average seating distance, you probably won’t be able to see the extra resolution compared ...

JVC DLA-RS1 HD-ILA (LCoS) Video Projector
Introduction If you cruise the A/V forums, it seems that JVC’s latest DLA-RS1 D-ILA (LCoS) projector is the hottest 1080p front projector on the market at this time. At under $7,000 the RS1 competes neck and neck with the Sony VPL-VW100 also nicknamed the Ruby. The feature package on the RS1 is comprehensive, and there are some unique set-up features that will aid in the ease of set-up and optimization of the picture. Rated at a very conservative 700 ANSI lumens, the RS1’s 200-watt UHP lamp has enough light output to drive screen sizes up to about 100 inches wide, depending on the screen material used. Sleek and elegant-looking, the RS1 will easily integrate into family rooms, living rooms, and of course will easily disappear on the ceiling of a dedicated home theater. While not completely perfect, the RS1 does have much to recommend it in terms of picture quality. Design The RS1 is one ...
