How in the world did this slip by everybody's radar? I was loking for info on the new HDTV D-VHS deck on JVC's website, and lookie what I found: JVC INTRODUCES THE FIRST I'ART PRO HDTV MONITOR (AV 36P902) AT CEDIA 2001


Anybody know anything more about this set than what's in the press release? The price looks good, but I'm sure the anti-DVI/HDCP folks will jump all over this set...

Here is info about a Standard Def cousin with some shared features:
http://store.hamptonimage.com/av36f802.html


Also, this quote from the site you mentioned:


"JVC's 4.77 Million Pixel Natural Progressive technology

doubles the image data in each field and uses advanced

3D interpolation to display a solid image without any

noticeable scanning lines on-screen and eliminates

jagged edge noise and image trails."


sounds interesting.


4.77 Millions pixels is more than double 1920x1080...

I wonder what that 4.77 million actually means.

I am sure the display cannot show anywhere near

that much detail so maybe they have a huge "internal"

framestore used for processing an interpolation?


Thanks for the link...

Digital camera manufacturers frequently count red, green, and blue as separate "pixels", effectively tripling the number of advertised pixels. Sketchy, but that's what the marketing people are for, I guess.

It looks to me like it's 4:3 with a manual 16:9 mode.

This is true, I've worked on developing digital cameras before. Still cameras have a single monochrome CCD or CMOS sensor in them. They then apply a color filter to the sensor which results in individual R, G, and B pixels. This forms what is called to be a "bayer" pattern. You get something like this, each character represents a pixel:


R G R G R G

G B G B G B

R G R G R G

G B G B G B


The "missing" color elements (ie the G and B component on a R pixel) are interpolated from their neighbors. The reason that there are more real G pixels than R or B is because the eye is most sensivite to green.

Not 16:9? I wonder why JVC thinks it's worth $2500 Oh, well, thanks for clearing that up.
