JVC have announced their “Super-Slim” LCD HDTV, which they are claiming to the the worlds thinest (with an internal tuner, Hitachi 1.5 LCD is only 1.5-Inches max) at just 1.5 inches deep with a maximum depth of just 2.9-inches (74mm) at the center.
The new super-slim design will be available in two sizes in the US. As the 42-inch JVC LT-42SL89, or the 46-inch JVC LT-46SL89, both offering a full 1080p HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The slim design was possible through a 40% smaller backlight than conventional models, cutting the weight of the sets to just 26.4 lbs (12kg), and also consume less power.
Unfortunately JVC have not released any other specifications or features, and will announce the price nearer than release date in the summer.
