With wider color space, 42-inch class super slim, lightweight Full HD monitor faithfully reproduces the colors, detail and texture of high resolution still photos made by digital SLR cameras.
LAS VEGAS, January 7, 2009 – Establishing a new category in flat panel TV design, JVC today announced an LCD TV system that includes a super slim monitor that features a color space that is wider than a typical HDTV’s.
The new JVC LT-42WX70 is a 42-inch class (42.02 inches diagonal) full HD LCD TV monitor that targets digital imaging professionals and enthusiasts using high-end digital SLR cameras, allowing them for the first time to see the subtle colors, details and textures of their images faithfully reproduced.
The monitor features expanded color space capacity encompassing 100 percent of HDTV broadcasting’s (sRGB.904) color space and a coverage rate of 96 percent for Adobe RGB — a color space for still photographs taken on high-definition digital SLR cameras — to provide accurate reproduction of both video and still photographs. The LT-42WX70 also features 52 picture-quality adjustment properties for tweaking both still and video images source-by-source to the exact colors and tones the user prefers. In addition, JVC’s GENESSA Picture Engine produces video images without blur, color bleed or noise for clear images with smooth movement.
In addition to its advanced display technology, the LT-42WX70 offers JVC’s groundbreaking design. The super slim TV is supported by an elegant, curved pedestal-style stand, into which the separately available tuner can be docked. Alternatively, the sleek, low-profile tuner can be separated from the monitor and placed horizontally or stood vertically on a tabletop, or hung on the wall. The two components are sold separately, so those with a set-top box and no need for a tuner can purchase just the monitor. The monitor is extremely light, enhancing placement possibilities. With an ENERGY STAR 3.0 rating, it draws very little power when operating.
Flexible High Technology from JVC
Depending on the source signal – video or stills – the user selects a color mode from among Wide (the TV’s color space), Normal (ITU-R BT.709; HDTV standards), x.v.Color (xvYCC extended gamut), sRGB (same primaries as HDTV) and Adobe RGB. sRGB and Adobe RGB color spaces are exclusive for viewing digital still images. Digital photos taken using the Adobe RGB colors space and displayed on the LT-42WX70 in the Adobe RGB mode will be reproduced with colors faithful to the original.
The monitor encompasses 100 percent of the sRGB (which is equivalent to HDTV for video signals) color space and a coverage rate of 96 percent for Adobe RGB, allowing the LT-42WX70 to fully reproduce the deeper reds and bluish greens that are a characteristic of Adobe RGB color.
To fine-tune the color for different sources, the LT-42WX70 features 52 on-screen image-quality adjustment properties that allow fine-tuning of colors, tint, gamma, and more, which can be memorized per source for future use. For example, individual color management settings of red, yellow, green, cyan tints and colors, as well as skin tone tint can be adjusted on-screen using the supplied remote controller.
JVC’s Individual Gamma Adjust System calibrates each panel’s grayscale tones to gamma 2.2 to ensure displaying consistent and faithful colors regardless of the set or manufactured lot. This extra effort is put in because color consistency between the source and display are essential when reproducing photos that are taken on digital SLR cameras or video from different sources.
Breaking new ground in performance for both moving as well as still images
To further ensure the best possible video quality, the set uses JVC’s new high-quality GENESSA Picture Engine with 12-bit (x RGB = 36-bit) for truly accurate and natural colors. The Real Bit Driver processes in 12-bit, and so up-converts 8-bit HD broadcasting and DVD signals or 10-bit Blu-ray signals into 12-bit Deep Color signals, regardless of the quality of the source signal, to achieve videos with smoother gradation.
To compensate for color bleed and color drift caused by the gap in the source color format and the LCD’s color space, the Chromaticity Point Conversion Circuit in the engine matches the colors so they are deep, natural and accurate.
120HzClear Motion Drive III (100Hz for PAL video signals) in the engine reduces blurring on LCD TV, helping to make images with rapid movement clearer and smoother using a high-precision interpolation algorithm. The 3D real time, motion-estimated Hadamard noise reduction is applied to eliminate noise while suppressing blur. Picture signal frequencies are also divided into 16 sections and noise reduction performed per section to produce images without noise while maintaining the realism and sharpness of the original picture.
Slim and lightweight, the LT-42WX70 features a stylish black leather-like texture on its slim bezel that also helps to reduce glare. The flat rear panel is completely finished in metallic silver without any visible assembly screws or vents, providing a clean, attractive design and allowing for greater placement flexibility.*2 To support the monitor, the supplied stand has a centre pillar that curves toward the front of the panel. The stand features a three-step height adjustment to further broaden installation possibilities and the TV can be easily removed from the stand for hanging from a ceiling or wall. In addition, the monitor comes equipped with a slim detachable stereo speaker that runs along the bottom of the panel. If an external sound source is to be used, the speaker module can be removed, giving the monitor an even sleeker, cleaner appearance. The simple and solid yet clearly distinctive design of the LT-42WX70 blends naturally with any given space.
An intuitive graphical on-screen display is easy to use via the included remote, and touch-panel operation makes essential TV operations available at the front panel. The remote can control other devices connected to the display via HDMI CEC.
The LT-42WX70 features an array of connectors for video and still image viewing, including three HDMI CEC terminals, D-Sub 15pin with component video, and an audio input jack. What’s more, the TV tuner comes supplied with 15-pin/component/composite, audio and HDMI cables. This allows the user to easily perform various operations such as checking images by connecting directly to an SLR camera compatible with HDMI or component connector, editing stills on the large 42-inch screen by connecting it to a PC via a D-sub 15-pin, or even do a round of on-screen checks in accurate colors prior to outputting images to a high-resolution digital photo printer and thus save on expenses.
The LT-42WX70’s matching HD digital/analog tuner box – TU-CX100 (not available in certain markets) – links to the monitor with an HDMI cable and can be used to connect the set to more devices or for receiving different broadcasting systems including HD digital terrestrial and cable. It is designed to dock below the monitor with cables hidden behind the unit to give the TV a clean single-unit looks. Installation possibilities expand even further when positioning the tuner box and display separately. The tuner box can be positioned horizontally or vertically on a table or even hung from the wall. Touch sensor operation buttons on the tuner box are designed to rotate in the correct orientation depending on how the box is positioned. The tuner box is sold separately as many households already own digital set-top boxes for receiving broadcasting.

JVC Original Panel with Wider Colour Space
The LT-42WX70 features a colour space that is wider than an HDTV and depending on the source signal ― video or stills ― the user can select from a colour mode of Wide (the TV's colour space), Normal (ITU-R BT.709, HDTV standards), x.v.Colour (xvYCC extended gamut), sRGB (same primaries as HDTV) and Adobe RGB. The sRGB and Adobe RGB colour spaces are exclusively used for viewing digital still images and if the photographer takes the shot by selecting the Adobe RGB setup, then the same Adobe RGB mode should be set on the monitor to ensure that the image is reproduced faithfully to its original colours. The monitor also encompasses 100% of sRGB colour space (which is equivalent to HDTV for the video signal) as well as a coverage rate of 96% for Adobe RGB. The LT-42WX70 can accurately reproduce deeper reds and blues as well as more vibrant greens, which are typical characteristics of the Adobe RGB colour range.
Differences between coverage and area
Looking at the diagram, if we take the blue triangle as Adobe RGB and the yellow triangle as a TV's colour space, the areas of both triangles are the same, so 100%. However because the yellow one doesn't cover the entire blue space, overlapping area is only about 90% coverage. The LT-42WX70 has an area ratio of 117% for sRGB and 100% for Adobe RGB
Individual Gamma Curve Adjustment Prior to Shipping
JVC's original Individual Gamma Adjust System calibrates each panel's grayscale tones to gamma 2.2, ensuring the display of consistent and faithful colour reproduction regardless of the set or manufactured lot. This extra benefit was incorporated because colour consistency between the source and display is essential when reproducing photos that are taken on digital SLR cameras or video from different sources.
“Photo Pro” Preset ― Optimally Designed for Displaying digital SLR Photographs
The LT-42WX70 features six presets that can store user-preference picture modes to ensure higher picture quality for both movies and stills. Of the six presets, “Photo Pro” Preset is designed for displaying digital SLR camera images to enable the faithful and accurate reproduction of the source image.
New DynaPix HD Picture Engine
Natural colours and smoother tone (12-bit x 3 = 36-bit)
The new DynaPix HD Picture Engine has been further refined to guarantee the reproduction of accurate and natural colours. The Real Bit Driver offers 12-bit (x RGB=36bit) processing performance, enabling up-converting of 8-bit HD broadcasting and DVD signals to 12-bit Deep Colour signals, ensuring smoother gradation regardless of the quality of the original source signal.
To compensate for colour bleed and colour drift that can be caused by gaps in the source colour format and the LCD's colour space, the Chromaticity Point Conversion Circuit in the engine matches colours so that they come out deeper, more natural, and accurate to the original source.
Intelligent Clear NR
Newly developed algorithm emulates the way people naturally raise visual sensitivity for those colours in an object that catches their attention. Intelligent colour Management analyzes the colour distribution in each frame of the input signal in real time to perform high-level processing for those areas that catch the attention. This creates images with more realistic colours and textures, adding a more dimensional feel.
100Hz/120Hz Clear Motion Drive III*
The 100Hz/120Hz* Clear Motion Drive III in the engine reduces blurring on LCD TVs, helping to make images with rapid movement clearer and smoother via a high-precision interpolation algorithm. What's more, a 3D real time, motion-estimated Hadamard noise reduction system of the Intelligent Clear NR is applied to further eliminate noise while suppressing blurriness. Picture signal frequencies are also divided into 16 sections to achieve effective noise reduction per section to create images without noise while maintaining the realism and sharpness of the original picture.
Displaying colours in their original set of tones
To achieve preferred colours of the connected sources individually, the LT-42WX70 features 52 on-screen image-quality adjustment properties, just as much as high-end front projectors would offer, that allow the fine-tuning of colours, tint, gamma, and more ― all of which can be memorized per source for future recall. For example, individual Colour Management Settings of tints and colours such as red, yellow, green, and cyan as well as skin tone tint can be adjusted on-screen using the supplied remote controller.
