JVC Showcases Breakthrough Display Products


New Shallow-Cabinet Projection HDTV, 1080p Home Theater Front Projector
And High-Speed LCD Technology Unveiled

LAS VEGAS, January 7, 2007 — JVC will launch a series of breakthrough display products this year in the front projection, microdisplay rear projection and flat panel categories. The introductions will include new products based on the company’s renowned LCOS-based D-ILA technology and LCD TVs that feature the latest iteration of JVC’s Clear Motion Drive high speed LCD technology.

In D-ILA products, the company this month will begin selling the first of two new shallow-cabinet projection high definition televisions in its HD-ILA series. The new shallow cabinet is made possible by the development of a new optical engine, and will be offered in two new HD-ILA televisions — the 58-inch HD-58S998, due this month, and the 65-inch HD-65S998, available in March, with cabinet depths of 10.7 and 11.6 inches, respectively. In front projectors, JVC has announced a new full HD home theater front projection, the DLA-HD1, with a native contrast ratio of 15,000:1 — the industry’s highest. Both the new slim HD-ILA sets and the DLA-HD1 use JVC’s proprietary D-ILA technology — three-chip LCOS (liquid crystal on silicon) technology that is renowned for its close pixel spacing and delivers a smooth, bright, high contrast image.

In LCD, JVC will follow up last year’s introduction of a 720p 120Hz model with an updated version of this high speed technology for use with full HD (1920 x 1080) LCD TVs. These sets will be available later in 2007.

JVC’s new slim HD-ILA TVs feature side heat dissipation, side connectors and a completely flat back, allowing them to be placed flush against a wall or even hung on the wall for further placement and decor flexibility. Each uses three JVC D-ILA devices and a new JVC-developed optical engine that combines a new concave mirror with the refracting lens to provide a wider projection angle, thus reducing the projection distance and allowing JVC to slim down the set considerably. The 58-inch HD-58S998 will sell for about $3,300 and the 65-inch HD-65S998 will sell for about $4,200.

The new JVC DLA-HD1 uses a new 0.7-inch full HD (1920 x 1080) D-ILA device and a new optical engine that together deliver a native contrast ratio of 15,000:1 — a level that ensures outstanding black reproduction without the sacrifice in brightness that the use of an iris would entail. Expected to sell for about $6,300, the DLA-HD1 targets the home theater enthusiast who might not have considered a front projector in the past because of cost.

To enhance LCD performance, JVC’s 120Hz Clear Motion Drive technology uses a frame doubling driver and a motion interpolation technique to quadruple resolution compared to a 1366 x 768 HD LCD TV, improve motion detection precision fivefold and realizes 10-bit processing for richer color reproduction of 1 billion colors. As a result, the technology produces 1080p/1080i images with far smoother movement. JVC will announce LCD TVs that use this technology in the second half of 2007.
