JVC lightweight HDTV set

JVC is due to show off the world's lightest HDTV set at the CES show on Wednesday, with the that tips the scales at just over 11lbs. While not the thinnest 32-inch HDTV, it's near the top with a near 0.28-inch (7mm) profile. The company promises technology used for the prototype 1080p-capable TV will be made commercially available before the end of 2009.

JVC claims the set's low weight allows it to be hung from ceilings like so many plants, leaving walls clutter-free and adding to the layout options of a room. The unnamed set also uses up about 50 percent less materials for a low carbon footprint. The LED backlight is also brighter than those used in conventional models while using less mercury in its construction.
JVC was not any more specific in terms of a release date or pricing information for the prototype HDTV. [via Impress]
