JVC announces 2nd generation Clear Motion Drive high-speed LCD television technology

JVC today announced its second generation Clear Motion Drive (CMD) high-speed LCD television technology that delivers crisp fast action images, typically a weakness in LCD performance. JVC’s new Clear Motion Drive II technology features a refresh rate of 120 frames per second (120Hz), double the typical rate. JVC CMD II has been designed specifically for full HD (1920 x 1080) displays and improves motion detection fivefold compared to the original high speed driver. To reduce blurring of moving images, JVC’s CMD II uses a frame doubling driver (120Hz) and motion interpolation. To get the most out of the double-speed full HD panels, JVC will use its fifth generation D.I.S.T. (Digital Image Scaling Technology) engine on the JVC-exclusive 32-bit Genessa chip. JVC’s 10-bit panel with the Genessa chip also renders more than one billion colors for rich, natural color reproduction. Also, with a 10-bit panel the reproducible color gamut is 102 percent based on the NTSC standard, displaying full edge-to-edge color of an NTSC picture. And finally, the single-chip processing ensures superior detection, analysis and control of the signal in real time.

JVC will launch its new High Speed 2 line this fall, comprised of three sets featuring Clear Motion Drive II – the 47-inch LT-47X898, the 42-inch LT-42X898 and the 37-inch LT-37X898. Each will offer three HDMI (1.3) compatible inputs. They will also feature a new cabinet that pushes JVC’s design mantra of “maximum screen, minimum cabinet” farther than previous models, with a bezel that measures less than 1.5 inches all the way around and a cabinet that is shorter and narrower than previous models in the same screen size.
