JVC reveals a trio of high-definition plasma display monitors at IBC (17/9/2004)

Making their debut at IBC are two new 42-inch models, the GD-V422PCE and GM-V42E and one 50-inch model, the GM-X50EA. Trevor Bilcock, UK General Sales Manager (AV and Professional Video Products) at JVC Professional Europe Ltd comments, "our new plasmas offer the highest resolution images possible coupled with sleek, refined styling that sets the standard for broadcast, production, business and professional users."

The GD-V422PCE

The GD-V422PCE is a 42-inch plasma monitor which produces over 1.07 billion colours to display rich definition and subtle colour differences. JVC brings flexible dynamic contrast ratios to this monitor, enabling the display of images with a high contrast of 4000:1 for areas that are dark and a low 160:1 for areas that are bright, so producing more realistic and sharper pictures.

Advanced signal processing features include scaling, de-interlacing and a 2:3 pull-down menu to select all video sources for HDTV and NTSC / PAL video monitoring as well as XGA presentation display (1024 x 760 pixels). The plasma supports a wide range of cinema and HDTV formats including 720, 50/60p, 1080 50/60i, 1080 24p and 1080 24pSF.

Dual display, side-by-side and picture-by-picture display can be generated from two video sources. For multi-display and video wall applications, a digital zoom feature is available. This plasma colour monitor has discrete IR commands and an 8W x 8W audio amplifier output for optional speakers.

It is supplied in a very attractive chassis which is a mere 3.5 inches deep, with a stylish silver bezel and removable carrying handles. Built-in screensavers can be programmed to eliminate potential burn-in.

The GM-V42E

This plasma colour monitor combines sharpness, with a contrast ratio of 3000:1 and brightness of 1000cd/m2 to produce images and pictures that provide the user with exceptional video qualities. The advanced gamma enables image reproduction with natural contrast at any luminance level. It preserves tonal subtleties in the dark areas (without increasing the noise) and enhances image brightness.

There is an on/off timer which minimises phosphor burn-in. Integrated into the monitor are 2W x 2W speakers. S-VGA/XGA compatibility is provided and viewing of HD images is also possible (1080i). The plasma monitor can even be linked directly up to JVC's JY-HD10 high definition camcorder. For customisation, the bezel is easily removable for colour respraying.

The GM-X50EA

The new 50-inch plasma, model GM-X50EA provides large screen imaging solutions for high-visibility applications such as exhibitions and retail showrooms.

The plasma has a contrast ratio of 2000:1 and a set brightness of 400cd/m2 or 1000cd/m2 panel brightness. The digital enhancement circuitry defines edges to the image by adjusting the sharpness control and it uses JVC's specially developed gamma control for optimum image reproduction and natural contrast. The front bezel can be removed for customisation.

Other products showing at IBC from JVC's presentation range is the DLA-HD2K high definition (D-ILA) projector.
