The folks at JVC have revealed an imposingly simple looking line of televisions this week intent on making the world understand that they're clear on consumer wishes for an absolute lack of bezel. The hero in this line is an LED-LCD TV with a 47-inch display ringing in at 1080p with Edge-lit technology. This machine is also internet ready with streaming services aplenty.

The JVC BlackSapphire SL works with JVC I.C.E., that's Internet Connected Experience, coming in with Netflix, SlingPlayer, Vudy, and Pandora right out of the box. This massive television works to out-do the slightly less expensive JVC SP (Sapphire) series with passive 3D abilities working with four pairs of glasses that come in the box.

This set is controlled with a "flippable" QWERTY remote control with a dedicated Netflix shortcut button. You'll be able to connect with three HDMI inputs, USB media port, and a series of composite video inputs. For those users wishing to conserve power and desire only the audio abilities of this machine (however strange that may seem), there's also a 3.5mm so-called "music port" for use with an Audio Only mode included with the setup.

This television series also comes in a 42-inch iteration, while both versions work with a 120Hz processing engine to back up their adaptive backlight abilities under the hood. The smaller television JVC SL42B-C will ring in at $799 USD while the larger JVC SL47B-C will cost you a cool $899.

Both televisions in this series will be coming in the summer of 2013, and the whole lot will be created with Taiwanese company Amtran. You'll have a difficult time finding a series of televisions with a look that's more daunting!
