Though it is mostly famous for the camcorders, JVC did make a comeback during 2011 with completely latest range of the televisions with help of Amtran, the Taiwanese company. Its latest series of SL does look very update with slimline look, ultra thin bezels, as well as unique stand of half-pipe.
Apart from stand, the other unusual thing happens to be that the flagship of JVC stops at the size of 47-inch, though according to Amtran representatives, the larger models would be available on some future date.
TV does feature an LED arrangement that’s edge-lit with the “adaptive backlight”. Also, it’s backed by one processing engine of 120Hz.
The company did go to immense pains for emphasizing these sets’ audio quality at the demonstration, though given that fake XinemaSound 3D -surround system was enabled, this was hard for gauging the audio quality.
As unlike cheaper (Sapphire) SP series, (BlackSapphire) SL features 3D (passive) along with pairs of the glasses in box.
JVC does come with the onboard wireless; the apps do include Pandora, Netflix, Slingbox client and Vudu. The TV does come with flippable remote of QWERTY that comes with the dedicated shortcut of Netflix.
Some further connectivity does come in form of 3 HDMI inputs, one media port for USB, and the component as well as the composite inputs of video. Uniquely, SL series do feature one “music port” of 3.5mm along with a mode of Audio Only for conserving energy while one is just listening music.
JVC SL42B-C at $799 as well as JVC SL47B-C at $899 would be available during summer 2013.
