Wayne, N.J. - JVC said it will
begin shipping this month new TeleDock LCD televisions in the 2010 model
Models in the line continue to include the company's popular integrated
iPod dock, which the company initiated several years ago. Models this year
feature iPhone support and 120Hz refresh rates for better picture quality.
The new three-model JVC TeleDock series is comprised of the
32-inch class LT-32P510 ($699 suggested retail), the 42-inch class LT-42P510 ($999)
and the 46-inch class LT-46P510 ($1,199).
The 32-inch model ships this month followed by the 42- and
46-inch models in May, JVC said.
In each case the iPod docks flip down at the base of the set to
enable a fast connection to the iPod to playback through the TV stored music
The docked iPod can be controlled from the TV's remote, which
includes a circular keypad with a control scheme that mimics the iPod's control
wheel. The dock also charges the iPod, when placed in the cradle, with the
set's power on or off.
During music playback, song title, artist, album and genre are
all displayed on the TV screen. Music stored on the iPod can be played through
the TV while watching TV programming, and the TV program or other video source
can be changed while the music is playing, JVC said.
In addition, the sound can be swapped between the iPod and the TV
program sound. Also, with music playing from the iPod, photos stored on the
iPod or photos stored on an external device connected to the set's USB port can
be viewed on the TV.
Other features in the line include the following: 1080 24p/30p HD
resolution, digital noise reduction, 120Hz Clear Motion
Drive for smooth-motion images and dynamic backlight. Connections
include three HDMI inputs, one component input, two S-Video inputs, PC input
(D-sub) and an analog video output.
The sound package delivers 10 watts per channel to each speaker.
