Establishing a new category in flat panel TV design, JVC today announced an LCD TV system that includes a super slim monitor that features a color space that is wider than a typical HDTV’s.

The new JVC LT-42WX70 is a 42-inch class (42.02 inches diagonal) full HD LCD TV monitor that targets digital imaging professionals and enthusiasts using high-end digital SLR cameras, allowing them for the first time to see the subtle colors, details and textures of their images faithfully reproduced. The monitor features expanded color space capacity encompassing 100 percent of HDTV broadcasting’s (sRGB.904) color space and a coverage rate of 96 percent for Adobe RGB — a color space for still photographs taken on high-definition digital SLR cameras — to provide accurate reproduction of both video and still photographs. The LT-42WX70 also features 52 picture-quality adjustment properties for tweaking both still and video images source-by-source to the exact colors and tones the user prefers. In addition, JVC’s GENESSA Picture Engine produces video images without blur, color bleed or noise for clear images with smooth movement.

In addition to its advanced display technology, the LT-42WX70 offers JVC’s groundbreaking design. The super slim TV is supported by an elegant, curved pedestal-style stand, into which the separately available tuner can be docked. Alternatively, the sleek, low-profile tuner can be separated from the monitor and placed horizontally or stood vertically on a tabletop, or hung on the wall. The two components are sold separately, so those with a set-top box and no need for a tuner can purchase just the monitor. The monitor is extremely light, enhancing placement possibilities. With an ENERGY STAR 3.0 rating, it draws very little power when operating.

The LT-42WX70’s matching HD digital/analog tuner box – TU-CX100 (not available in certain markets) – links to the monitor with an HDMI cable and can be used to connect the set to more devices or for receiving different broadcasting systems including HD digital terrestrial and cable. It is designed to dock below the monitor with cables hidden behind the unit to give the TV a clean single-unit look. Installation possibilities expand even further when positioning the tuner box and display separately. The tuner box can be positioned horizontally or vertically on a table or even hung from the wall. Touch sensor operation buttons on the tuner box are designed to rotate in the correct orientation depending on how the box is positioned. The tuner box is sold separately as many households already own digital set-top boxes for receiving broadcasting.
Pricing and release date are still open.
