Jvc HD-Ila Rear Projection Televisions Slim Down

If you’ve been intrigued by the excellent image quality of LCOS (liquid crystal on silicon) rear projection TVs, but don’t care for the depth of these screens when compared to LCD and plasma sets, you’re in luck.

JVC Slim HD-ILA Rear Projection HDTV

Up until now, most LCOS rear projection sets have been around 19- or 20-inches deep. JVC’s new line of slim “HD-ILA” 1080p sets (Sony LCOS sets are called “SXRD” – you say po-tayto, I say po-tahto) are both under 12-inches deep. The 58-inch HD-58S998 (10.7-inches deep) and the 65-inch HD-65S998 (11.6-inches deep) are designed for installation inside of cabinets or even for wall mounting. By completely overhauling the traditional RPTV mirror and lens system, JVC has been able to substantially reduce the depth required to project an image.

The sets tout a 10,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and native 1080p resolution, as well as Genessa image processing circuitry which is said to provide high-quality image upscaling. They also include an on-board ATSC/DRC/QAM/NTSC tuner, so the sets are ready to receive high-def content right out of the box. The 58-inch model ($3299 USD) will hit shelves in January 2007 and the 65-inch model ($4199 USD) is expected in March 2007.

Keep in mind that past sets that have slimmed down in this way have had some issues with image distortion, so you’ll want to wait for the early reviews before you plunk down your hard-earned cash.
