JVC Kenwood has jumped on the 4K bandwagon with three new Ultra HD LCD TVs at the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The 55-inch DM55UXA ($1,899.99), 65-inch DM65UXA ($2,499.99) and the largest JVC TV to date, the 85-inch DM85UXA ($9,999.99), are made for the JVC brand by AmTRAN Video Corp., an Irvine, Calif.-based LCD TV maker.
The new lineup has direct LED backlight and 10-bit color capabilities in the 3840 x 2160 resolution. The UHD TVs all feature a total of four HDMI inputs: two HDMI 1.4 ports and two HDMI 2.0 ports with HDCP 2.2 content protection. The units also have ClearMotion 240Hz processing and 50 million-to-one dynamic contrast ratio.
All three JVC 4K Ultra HD displays feature XinemaSound 3D, a proprietary suite of acoustic and digital signal processing technologies designed to elevate the audio performance from built-in TV speakers.
The models are built with Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) capabilities – a feature that allows end-users to easily control as many as 15 CEC compatible HDMI devices. The displays are also highlighted by a smart TV platform that delivers access to streaming audio, video, games, and multimedia services. The displays also come with a sleek remote with a full QWERTY keyboard.
“We keep hearing that consumers are looking for a compelling reason to make the leap to Ultra HD,” says Drew Pragliola, senior vice president of sales and marketing at AmTRAN Video Corp. “With our new UHD displays, I think we’ve given them three compelling reasons, with a feature-packed lineup of high performance, next-generation TVs, in a wide-ranging selection of screen sizes perfect for virtually any environment.
This almost sounds better than the new Vizio's!
