JVC’s new boomboxes with touch control, iPod integration

Posted in JVC by Conner Flynn on January 11th, 2009

JVC’s new boomboxes with touch control, iPod integrationJVC was feeling nostalgic, so it has upgraded that most classic of urban audio fixtures, the boombox. Make no mistake, this ain’t your grandaddy’s boombox. This is a boombox for the 21st century. How do I know this? Because it boasts an iPod dock and touchscreen of course.

Even the way that you wake the device from standby mode is futuristic. You wake it up from standby mode by waving a hand in front of the system, which illuminates all of the controls and the LED display. That’s not all, there’s a bunch of gestures and motions you can apply to the touchscreen to do stuff like control the sound.

New JVC HDTV targets digital SLR lovers

Posted in HDTV by Nino Marchetti on January 7th, 2009


JVC is introducing at CES 2009 what it calls a new category of flat panel television design – a super slim monitor said to feature a color space wider than typical HDTVs. It is called the LT-42WX70 and no pricing or release information is known as of yet.

The LT-42WX70, said JVC, was designed to reproduce the colors, detail and “texture” of high resolution images captured on digital SLR cameras. It, in fact, is designed to target digital imaging professionals and others into using high end digital cameras, though it is fully functional as well as a home television. It sports a 42-inch display in a slim body design.

JVC’s Blu-ray products come to America

Posted in JVC by Conner Flynn on January 7th, 2009

JVC’s Blu-ray products come to AmericaIn the US, JVC fans have had to watch with envy as the rest of the world gets all of the JVC Blu-ray products. Not anymore. Today JVC announced a stand-alone Blu-ray player and a 3.1 home theater in a box. The XV-PB1 Blu-ray player will be available in March for $299. It will support BD Live content and also playback AVCHD videos that you create on your HD camcorder.

The new TH-SB100 is likely just the US version of the NX-BD3 previously available in Europe, which is a BD Live player. There’s no mention of any support for DTS-HD or Dolby TrueHD. It will be available in April for $699.

JVC’s 32-7mm thin LCD is the lightest in the world

Posted in JVC by Conner Flynn on January 5th, 2009

JVC’s 32-7mm thin LCD is the lightest in the worldFor a while there, manufacturers were concentrating on large sizes, now it’s depth that is all important. TVs are big and you can get one up to 150 inches if you’re rich and bored, but how thin are they? Chances are they are not thin enough to match your wall art. That’s all about to change as companies race to put out the first super-thin LCD TVs.

JVC is about to show off a new prototype of a 32-inch LCD HDTV at CES this week. It’s unique because it’s a mere 7mm thick and weighs in at just 11 pounds, which thinner and lighter than your TV. Most laptops no longer weigh that. Since it’s a prototype, it won’t be showing up on store shelves anytime soon, but with everyone racing to get them to consumers, it won’t be a long wait.

Both models feature 42x optical zoom with image stabilization. The GZ-MG840 will retail for about $757, while the GZ-MG860 will go for about $811.

JVC’s Sound Garden concept is a modular speaker systemJVC’s Sound Garden concept blends tree-hugging with design. It’s a full hi-fi speaker system with bass-reflex ports and little pot areas for your plants. (Which don’t have that much room.) And it’s all made of some wonder material called “eco-plastic”. If you want, you can connect a whole bunch together for massive sound and massive plant life. Just a concept right now, but rest assured they are working on more music/plant tech as I type this.

JVC NX-PN7 dual iPod docking station clock radioToday JVC finally officially launched that dual iPod docking station we saw earlier this year at CES which has the ability to dock two iPods at the same time. The NX-PN7 stands out from the crowd of endless iPod accessories since it can hold not one but two iPods, or an iPod and an iPhone, charging and playing from either of them.

The dual iPod dock also features an AM/FM clock radio and video out to output your video media to a television. And don’t forget that bit of “flare” they added to the device with the illuminated strips that can show one of nine colors. JVC appropriately has set the retail price of the NX-PN7 to about double the price of a single iPod dock, at $149.95.

JVC Everio GZ-MS100There are lots of people from all walks of life that use YouTube for sharing videos for personal and business needs. The problem for many is that uploading and sizing videos for the service can be a pain and the dedicated YouTube camcorders are often junk.

JVC 8K4K D-ILA projector LCD
JVC just rolled out their 1.75″ 8K4K D-ILA (Direct-Drive Image Light Amplifier) which is capable of outputting 17x full, 1080p high definition from a projector.

That’s the equivalent of a 35-megapixel image at a stunning 8,192 x 4,320 resolution. JVC managed to increase the ratio of area per pixel by 50% over its predecessor’s 4,096 x 2,400 LCD panel that was developed in June last year. That’s pretty damn impressive. I guess JVC now holds the title of World’s first real Super Hi-Vision definition device. The commercial release is set for sometime in January next year. It will likely be expensive, but you never know.

JVC GZ-HD6JVC offered up earlier this week for consumer consumption some new high definition hard disk camcorders which deliver 1920×1080 recording. These are the JVC GZ-HD6 and GZ-HD5, priced at around $1,400 and $1,200 respectively.

CES 2008

JVC rolls out new Everio HDD camcorders

Posted in Camcorders,CES 2008,JVC by Darrin Olson on January 8th, 2008

JVC Everio GZ-MG730 HDD CamcorderAt the CES show this year JVC is launching a new line of their Everio hard disk camcoders, ranging in features, hard drive capacities and even coming in four different colors. JVC is also touting this new lineup to currently be the worlds smallest HDD camcorders available at around 20 percent smaller than the previous models.

All these camcorders utilize a hard disk drive to store video and pictures, ridding the need for discs or tapes, and they come with HDD capacities of either 30GB or 60GB and with or without docks depending on the model. They all also feature an SD card slot, 2.7-inch widescreen LCD and a new touch-sensitive scroll bar to the right of the LCD screen for navigating the menus and selecting videos. This sounds like it would be nice since it still allows easy touch navigation but lets JVC use a better display and avoid finger prints all over it, as what happens when using an actual touch screen.

JVC dual iPod dock, clock radio

Posted in CES 2008,Clocks,Dock,iPod Accessories,JVC by Darrin Olson on January 8th, 2008

JVC NX-PN7 dual ipod dockWith so many iPod accessories on the market today it’s tough to make one stand out from the others, especially with clock radio docks. JVC is making an attempt to stand out this year and unveiling this clock radio at the Consumer Electronics Show which that docks not just one but two iPods, making it twice as good, right?

The JVC NX-PN7 dock features a clock and timer and we’re making an assumption that it has an alarm that will play music from the iPod, but JVC did not mention that specifically. It would also be nice if this clock radio was a dual alarm that would play a different iPod with the different alarm, but unfortunately there was no mention of that either.

JVC to launch wooden ear buds

Posted in Earbuds,JVC by Darrin Olson on December 26th, 2007

JVC HP-FX500 Victor ear buds made of woodJVC has some new ear buds set to launch sometime early in February that employ a little more natural materials than most with the housing made out of real wood. Birch wood, to be exact, was the material of choice for the designers of these $130+ ear buds. After all, real wood wood works well to encase larger speakers so why not use it for really tiny ones too?

The HP-FX500 ear buds don’t skimp on performance either, according to JVC. The buds use hybrid drivers, a damping gel inside to reduce jittering and help with noise cancellation, and they have a sound range from 8Hz up to 25kHz. Also, like most ear buds, they come packaged with a carrying case and multiple sized rubber tips to fit different sized ears.
