I remember when I was a child, and my father said that he was going to give our family a huge surprise. Of course, I thought we were going on a vacation, maybe a new car – or could it be – a new pet? However, all of these previous thoughts were shot down when I came home from school and saw that we didn’t have a new car sitting in our driveway, nor did we have the sound of new dog’s paws on our floor. As I went downstairs, hoping that my father would be holding plane tickets to a remote destination that we have only seen on the television, it was then that I saw our true surprise — it was a brand new big-screen projection television. This was over a decade ago now, how time flies, and that television was absolutely massive.
I swear, it was about three feet deep and weighed over a metric ton! But, I do remember the quality of the picture, and it was amazing. Well, projection televisions are still around, however, they are a far cry from their ancestors. Our TV was a JVC, and they are still pumping out amazing projection Televisions. One of their newest is the JVC 56″ 1080p Rear-Projection HD-ILA HDTV, Model: HD56FN97.
This amazing television set has one amazing feature that truly sets it apart from all other projection televisions. And that is that it has utilized the D-ILA micro display technology, which will give you an absolutely breathtaking picture resolution of 1080p, which means that on this massive screen, you will actually think that you are in the TV. Another great feature, is that this television has a built-in HDTV Tuner, as well as it is digital cable ready.
If you were to ad a HD-capable antenna, than you can receive any high-definition broadcasts that are in your area. Also, you can ad a CableCARD to watch one-way digital cable. Both of these features make owning a HDTV extremely easy and will actually show you how fun it is to have these types of viewing options.
This television comes with a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9, which will make you feel like you are actually in the movie. There is a 3 chip HD-ILA, which means a Direct Drive Image Light Amplifier that has a TrueHD engine, which will give you a crystal-clear picture, and will eliminate the pesky “rainbow” and “screen-door effect” that is common with micro displays, which is the only problem that my old projection television set had. If you were to sit in a awkward viewing position to the TV, than you would get a very hazed and discolored image. However, JVC has now solved that problem, making every seat in your living room a perfect seat.
Some other features that this television has put into play that makes the picture quality amazing is the digital five-point color management system, as well as the fifth generation GENESSA Digital Image Scaling Technology, also known as DIST. There is also a Motion Adaptive Dynamic Gamma Control, which gives you clear pictures even when the screen is dark. You will no longer have to guess what is happening on the TV set when the image lighting dims.
Wondering how this television sounds? Well, the answer is – amazing! This JVC rear-projection television comes with two built-in 10W oblique cone speakers, as well as having advanced tone correction with voice enhancement. This acts a volume stabilizer, which will allow you freedom from having to switch the volume from louder to softer depending on what is going on in the movie or TV show. There are even two IEEE 1394 interfaces, which let you communicate with other IEEE 1394 devices, like DVD recorders and digital camcorders. Basically, IEEE is a FireWire, thus the possibilities are becoming endless. You can even connect your PC through the PC video input, which allows you to use your television set as a computer monitor.
This television set is absolutely amazing, and it has the quality of JVC to back it up. I remember my television lasted for over a decade, and that was an extremely old model. So, I can only imagine how long JVC’s newer models will last. If you are in the market for a new TV, than this one is absolutely for you!
