JVC has pulled the wraps off a new 3-D HDTV that uses passive 3-D glasses. The TV is a 55-inch JLE55SP4000 3D HDTV and features XinemaView 3D technology. The TV ships with four pairs of battery free passive 3-D glasses and supports Internet apps.
The TV offers innovative Wi-Fi to support those Internet applications and has 120 Hz refresh rate. To make accessing applications and typing using the TV easier it ships with a remote control that has a QWERTY keypad. The TV has a thin bezel that's less than half an inch thick and supports full HD resolution.
The TV uses edge LED backlit technology for better picture quality and reduced power consumption. JVC also says that the TV stands out from similar models thanks to superior sound quality. JVC says that the sound system has 45 W of total speaker output power, including an integrated woofer and support for XienmaSound 3D technology.
That technology allows the TV to create a virtual surround sound experience without needing additional speakers. The TV comes preloaded with apps for Netflix, YouTube, Vudu, and Pandora. The TV also has a pair of USB ports allowing users to watch home movies, view photos, and listen to music. The TV also has four HDMI inputs, one antenna input, component, and composite video inputs. The screen promises a contrast ratio of 20,000,000 to 1 dynamic. One of the most impressive features of this TV is the price. It will ship this month for $1299.99.
