True 1080p Full HD Widescreen W-XGA (1920 x 1080) LCD
This panel provides high brightness, a wide viewing angle, and a flicker-free high resolution picture that scales all video sources to display at 1080p.
5 Point color Management
Because of our exclusive 5 Point Color Management System, JVC LCD televisions produce color that is realistic and pure no matter what you are watching.
By anticipating which colors typically interfere with others and proactively preventing them from doing so, JVC color is simply superb.
Superior Gamma Controlling & Detailing
Another key reason behind JVC's superior imagery is that the gamma control is far better than that which typically goes into an LCD TV. This circuit actively detects areas of darker data, even in motion, and preserves the tonal details and gradations with those areas so that they remain rich with detail and never appear muddied.
Superior Picture Reproduction Overall
A central challenge to any High Definition TV is noise reduction because noise is an inherent part of broadcasts and videos, especially on older sources. Noise reduction is an area where the LT-42X579 excels because it incorporate special filters and circuits to take care of every kind of noise.
Digital Video Noise Reduction detects and stabilizes digital video noise to reduce any graininess. Its "real time" detection of noise provides for intelligent control and improved noise reduction for an overall smoother image. An added adaptive processor for the DVD input insures that all your video sources are noise free.
A 3D Y/C Digital Comb Filter w/Cross Color Eliminator detects and reduces embedded dot and color interference from digital broadcast and component signals for crystal clear images.
Natural Progressive Technology is an I/P scaling technology that smooths images. Natural Progressive works by insuring total focus in areas that normally blur, such as where fast movement and where skewed lines exist, so images are always smooth.
Natural Cinema (3-2 Pull Down) Technology is an edge smoothing circuit that samples and compensates for the jagged edges commonly found in videos that were converted from film. This filter is especially helpful with movies on DVD

Broadcasts vary and so do people's preferences as to how their shows look best on the screen. Some individuals don't mind black bars, others find them annoying. JVC gives viewers the power to refill the screen eight different ways:
Convenient Direct Video Inputs
The new remote control, controls your TV and lets you easily navigate the menu system.
Direct access buttons to some of the most commonly used menu features such as SOUND, VIDEO STATUS, and the SLEEP TIMER make it quick and easy to change your settings.
Best of all, new direct input buttons for each of your five video inputs are a great convenience, too.
USB Photo Viewer
The USB photo viewer enables you to turn your television into a slideshow! Connect your JVC Everio Digital Media Recorder or other compatible device and show your recent JPEG photos to your entire audience
Complete Sound Package
Hi-def imagery deserves hi-def audio. To achieve a rich 3d-like sound field, the 1080p uses the dynamics of sound to recreate a surround sound feel straight from the TV speakers.
It's a scientific fact- sound bounces around a room. The shape and location of the speakers take full advantage of this. The result is built-in speakers that produce home audio system quality- ready to take on the most demanding soundtrack.
With 20W total audio power, every LCD 1080p model generates superb sound. JVC's original bass-reflex oblique cone speakers situated on the bottom of the TV deliver sound upwards from their off-centered voice coil to reduce distortion and optimize sound quality for anyone sitting in front of the television.
