What’s hot for JVC in 2009?

JVC’s annual Key Dealer Meeting (KDM) offers the first chance to check out the maker’s latest products and see what’s in the pipeline for the future. The 2009 KDM was no exception, with JVC showing off its latest wares, including a re-vamped Everio camcorder line-up and its new Blu-ray developments.

The highlight of JVC’s 2009 line-up was its new TV range, including the flagship LT-42WX70 super slim panel – the first product in the maker’s new Xiview series. The full HD 42in panel measures just 43mm deep and weighs in at just 13kg. It will be available with a separate tuner box and optional speakers. It also boasts a Photo Mode designed to display images from a Digital-SLR camera.

What’s more, models in the slimline full HD DV1 range of TVs, available in 37, 42 and 47in screen sizes, incorporate the HandClap functionality which JVC debuted as a concept at last year’s KDM.

Other new TV models include the HD-ready DE1 range which is available in 19, 26 and 32in sizes, all of which incorporate 160GB hard disk drives.

After displaying prototype models for several years, JVC introduced its first standalone Blu-ray player. The XV-BP1 is Profile 2.0 compatible enabling access to all of the latest BD-Live features when used with USB memory. Further expanding its hi-def portfolio, JVC is adding two more Blu-ray surround sound systems to its existing NX-BD3 model. Forming part of the Sophisti home cinema range, the new systems will be available in August with the NX-BD5B sporting 2.1-channel sound and the NX-BD7B featuring a 5.1-channel system.

Everio updated

JVC has also updated its popular Everio camcorder range with its line-up for 2009 including the world’s first dual SD card slot models enabling seamless recording from one card to the next. The whole range, including several new HD Everio models, also features one-touch uploading to YouTube or iTunes. The new range has also been slimmed down, with the HD models matching the size of the standard-def versions for the first time. More models now offer colour options, while the Laser Touch Operation has also been updated.

The manufacturer’s best-selling Gumy in-ear headphones will feature in the 2009 product line-up, available in nine new colours designed to coordinate with the iPod Nano and fourth-generation Shuffle. These will join its Marshmallow range, along with the new Gumy Air and foldable Flats lightweight headphones.

JVC also unveiled an updated audio range with many of the products boasting the ‘Made for iPod’ badge.

The future room

As in previous years, JVC gave a sneak peek of a host of technologies that may go into production in its ‘future room’.

The highlight was a 3D LCD panel which produces three-dimensional images when watched with special polarised 3D glasses. Also on show was JVC’s next-generation super-thin 32in LCD panel measuring just 7mm thick and weighing in at a lightweight 5kg. According to the manufacturer, the new panel uses approximately 50% less material resources and 10% fewer LCD module parts than current comparable JVC models.

Other innovations unveiled in the future room included wireless 1080p HDTV and an LED backlight LCD panel.
