IFA 2009: JVCs super slim LCD-TV official

25 Sep 2009 | Rasmus Larsen |

JVC has been talking about their super-thin TV for a long time not and on IFA 2009 it has – finally - become an official product of JVC’ss XIVIEW series. The TV is called LT-32WX50 and is only 6.4 mm thick!

JVC’s super slim LCD TV has been exhibited as a prototype many times but JVC has been hesitant to market it. JVC has now announced that the TV will become available under the model name of LT-32WX50 in a 32-inch model.

The secret behind the very slim frame is LEDs, like on the Samsung LED-TV. JVC uses Edge LED where you put the LEDs along the edge of the panel. This allows for an extremely thin profile.

TV is only 6.4 mm thick at its thinnest part. At the lower bottom one will find a controller box, however, where inputs and outputs have been located as well. The TV weighs only 5.7 kg and it is possible - according to JVC – to wall-mount the set on a wall using only a magnetic rail.

Technical specifications: 4000:1 contrast ratio and a colour gamute of 90 % of the AdobeRGB spectrum (although in practice this may lead to inaccurate colours). JVC also says that LT-32WX50 has a Full HD panel and 100 Hz Clear Motion Drive III. Finally, it handles 1080p24 signals.

The power supply is external; a necessity of the thin design. It also means that the cable to the screen is very small.

JVC XIVIEW will be avaiable in 32 inches (LT-32WX50) at first. A 40-inch model (LT-40WX50) will be launched within 6 months.
