JVC Home Theater Systems Introduced


DVD, CD, USB, iPod and DivX — JVC’s HD Home Cineplex Line Handles Them All.

LAS VEGAS January 7, 2007 — JVC’s new HD Home Cineplex line makes it easier than ever to enjoy the impact of a great home theater system thanks to easy set-up and playback compatibility with the wide range of digital home entertainment sources available today.

The two systems in the line, the TH-D60 and TH-D50, are 5.1-channel systems comprised of a DVD receiver, five speakers and powered subwoofer. They offer the option of a front surround set-up and feature Made for iPod compliance, iPod dock, USB Host, DivX Ultra playback and HDMI connectivity with upconversion.

Both systems are designed to complement the latest generation of sleekly styled rear projection and flat panel TVs. The black low-profile receiver has illuminated touch panel controls, while the speakers are likewise slim designs. As for playback options, JVC’s HD Home Cineplex systems easily accommodate both the old and the new, combining DVD/CD and AM/FM playback with the ability to handle digital audio and video files from a wide variety of sources.
For iPod fans, both the TH-D60 and TH-D50 offer Made for iPod compliance, with a provided dock that allows the system to control play, pause and skip functions and routes video from an iPod though the system and to a connected display. What’s more, the iPod charges while connected.
Both systems also offer USB Host, allowing easy connection and playback of music, movie and picture files from external USB mass storage devices, including flash audio players, card readers, USB memory drives and digital still cameras. Supported file formats include MP3, WMA, JPEG, DivX and MPEG-4 ASF. For playing back video files, JVC’s HD Home Cineplex systems are DivX Ultra certified, so they can play back DivX Ultra files, the latest version of the popular video compression technology. DivX files can be played back through a device connected via USB Host or from a DVD.

Recognizing that not all consumers have a room that can accommodate rear channel speakers behind the listening area, the TH-D60 and TH-D50 offer JVC’s Front Surround technology. Consumers have the option of a conventional 5.1-channel set up, or the surround left and surround right speakers can be set up front, flanking the center channel speaker and the Front Surround mode selected. This creates virtual surround left and right channels, creating a surround effect without the need for rear speakers.
