To further enhance performance, JVC's CMD II TVs use a 10 bit IPS LCD panel, which renders more than one billion colors for rich, natural color reproduction, provides natural gray scaling and provides 64 times smoother gradation than does an 8 bit panel. To get the most out of the advanced 10 bit 120Hz panel, JVC's high-speed LCDs feature the company's fifth generation D.I.S.T. (Digital Image Scaling Technology) engine on the JVC-exclusive 32-bit Genessa chip, which combines all core image processing circuits together in a single chip that allows for faster communication among circuits. What's more, the panel features IPS (In Plane Switching) technology for a wide 178-degreee viewing angle.
Specifications include a contrast ratio of 2000:1, 4.5msec response rate, 500cd/m2 brightness, and a 178-degree viewing angle.
All three JVC LCD TVs include three HDMI v1.3 inputs, one RS-232 interface, one PC input, one Smart Video input, two component inputs, one S-Video input, three AV inputs, one optical digital audio output and one fixed audio output.
Each set's sound package includes MaxxAudio, a suite of five psychoacoustic DSP technologies that compensate for the limitations of small speakers. The sound package also includes a 20-watt amplifier, JVC's Twin Oblique Cone speakers, Advanced Hyper Surround Plus, and JVC's Smart Sound, which maintains a constant volume level as content changes (such as from program material to commercial).
A universal remote control is included with each set, offering direct selection of five different video inputs.
JVC's new Clear Motion Drive II LCD TVs will be available this month as part of JVC's new Procision series of premium-level products to be sold through a select group of dealers. 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.
