JVC 21:9 format

Philips was the first manufacturer to introduce a 21:9 TV in the extra-wide cinematic aspect ratio. JVC apparently also believes in the 21:9 format and has now exhibited their own 21:9 TV. According to a JVC spokesman the TV will be available later in 2011.

Philips unveiled their Cinema 21:9 in 2009 and a 3D Cinema 21:9 in 2010. At CES Vizio introduced two 21:9 format TVs and it seems that JVC will be the next supporter of the extra wide 21:9 format.

But why 21:1? Well, today most cinematic movies are produced in the 21:9 aspect ratio. That’s why Blu-ray movies have black bars at the top and bottom on your regular TV.

JVC has demonstrated a 50-inch TV in 21:9. The TV has a full HD resolution and also shows 3D. JVC mentions that the TV might launch in different sizes, unlike the Philips TV that only exists in 58 inches. An Internet platform was also mentioned.

The TV that you see in the pictures is still as prototype but JVC says that they plan to introduce their 21:9 TVs on the US market in the third quarter of 2011. The most interesting fact right now is that more and more manufacturers seem to support the 21:9 format.
