High-end flatpanel monitors aren’t just for video. JVC Tuesday said it has a super-slim LCD TV monitor with a color space that is wider than a typical HDTV’s, and it’s aimed at users of high-end SLR cameras, giving royal treatment to those digital images.
JVC Xiview LT-42WX70
The new JVC Xiview LT-42WX70 is a 42-inch diagonal 120Hz 1080p LCD TV 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. It also has 52 picture-quality adjustment properties for tweaking both still and video images source-by-source to preferred colors and tones the user prefers. It uses JVC’s Genessa picture engine for video images.
It’s just 1-5/8 inches deep and is supported by a curved pedestal-style stand. The rear of the monitor is finished in metallic silver without any visible vents or assembly screws.
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).
The monitor measures 39 by 28-1/4 by 1-5/8 inches and weighs 26.4 pounds. Mounted on its stand, the total weight is 41.8 pounds and depth is 6-3/4 inches.
The JVC LT-42WX70 is available now and is priced at $2,399.95.
