JVC Xiview Photo TV Ships

JVC today shipped an LCD TV it bills as the first specifically geared towards digital SLR photography. The Xiview LT42WX70 emphasizes color accuracy first and covers both all of the sRGB color gamut used for HDTV but 96 percent of the Adobe RGB space as well; the trick promises a relatively accurate display that can be used for quick photo proofing or just as a means of viewing images at a large size. About 52 different visual settings, as well as consistent 2.2 gamma, help calibrate the display to achieve its intended effect.

The 42-inch set is also one of JVC's thinnest at just over 1.6 inches deep and has a 120Hz panel to help preserve detail in fast-motion video. The company prefers connecting cameras through HDMI but also has a VGA port for PC input. Adding the improved color performance brings the price of the Xiview up to $2,400.
