JVC TV to Feature a Total of 17 Displays at Videogame History Exhibit, SXSW 2015

IRVINE, CA, March 10, 2015 – AmTRAN Video Corp., a leader in HD and Ultra HD TV design and manufacturing that licenses the JVC TV brand for the North American market, is following up news of its sponsorship of the Videogame History Museum exhibit at the 2015 SXSW Gaming Conference and Expo in Austin, Texas with details about the extensive number of JVC TVs that will be featured on-site. In addition, the brand will feature its products in the MVPindex Lounge at SXsports.

Scheduled to be held from Friday, March 13 through Sunday, March 15, the Videogame History Museum exhibit will include a total of 17 JVC TV displays, including the brand’s largest screen to date – the 85” DM85UXR Ultra HDTV. Other models include the 65” DM65USR Ultra HDTV (2) and 40”

EM40NF5 HDTV (14). The displays will be prominently featured in Room 1 of the Palmer Events Center at 900 Barton Springs Road. The exhibit will be open to the public with free Guest Pass wristbands (see for details) from 12:00-8:00 PM daily.

“We’re heading to SXSW with both guns blazing,” said Drew Pragliola, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at AmTRAN Video Corp.  “JVC TV will feature our latest and greatest in a forum where only the best quality displays are considered acceptable.”

The 85” DM85UXR Ultra HD (4K) display incorporates direct LED backlight and 10-bit color, an innovation that greatly enhances dynamic contrast, delivering the most precise color reproduction on the market. This is made possible by an unrivaled 64 zones of local dimming, which dynamically adjusts backlighting scene-by-scene to assure the deep blacks and brilliant details of today’s digital content. Even the most devoted HDTV fans are continually astounded by UHD’s 3840 x 2160 resolution and incomparable picture quality. And the DM85UXR has a number of other valuable innovations to maximize the user/viewer experience. These include built-in Wi-Fi for seamless web surfing, XinemaSound 3D for audio that rivals leading soundbars, and a handy double-sided remote with full QWERTY keypad, enabling much faster text searches than common virtual keypads.

MVPindex Lounge at SXsports

Also taking place at SXSW, JVC TV is partnering with MVPindex by featuring three screens at the popular MVPindex Lounge at SXsports, March 13 – 15.

JVC TV’s 65” DM65USR and 55” EM55FTR (2) will adorn the Lounge, located in the SXsports portion of SXSW. This marks the second year that the MVPindex Lounge will be available to Interactive badge holders, giving them a place to relax, network, enjoy refreshments and charge their gear.

“The JVC TV screens are going to look amazing in our lounge this year,”

said Lauren Allison, Production Director, MVPindex. “We know we can count on the quality and clarity of JVC TVs to make our content look great, so we can effectively entertain and engage festival-goers throughout the weekend.”
