42” and 47” JVC-brand BlackSapphire™ Razor-Edge E-LED HDTVs Feature Edge-to-Edge Cinematic SplendorNew SL42B-C and SL47B-C edge-lit BlackSapphire LED TVs, delivering incredible 3D video, I.C.E.™ Smart TV apps, and more screen real estate than ever before
IRVINE, CA, July 11, 2013 - AmTRAN Video Corp. today announced the introduction of the new JVC-brand 42" SL42B-C and 47" SL47B-C BlackSapphire™ Razor-Edge E-LED HDTVs, two fully featured, high-performance models that boast a nearly borderless image, along with the other heralded benefits of the BlackSapphire line, including XinemaSound™ 3D audio, built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi, I.C.E.™ Smart TV apps and a QWERTY keypad remote control.
Within gorgeous imagery that virtually floats in the air thanks to the Razor-Edge, virtually bezel-free design, both the SL42B-C (pictured left) and SL47B-C deliver an utterly immersive image, enhanced by the same sort of passive, battery-free 3D experience that viewers are accustomed to seeing at commercial cinemas. Both models also ship with four free pairs of XinemaView 3D™, so the entire family can join in on the stereoscopic experience. In addition, both models are further enhanced by 120Hz CrystalMotion™ frame rates, adaptive edge LED backlighting, 20-million: 1 contrast ratio with dynamic processing for truly eye popping depth of imagery, and CrystalColor™ Enhancement.
"In addition to introducing our new Razor-Edge design, which removes the bezel from the picture and delivers an image that almost looks like a window into another world, the SL42B-C and SL47B-C also introduce two new screen sizes for the BlackSapphire line," said Drew Pragliola, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at AmTran Video Corp. "42- and 47-inch screens continue to be amongst the most popular screen sizes among consumers, and when you combine that with the awesome 3D capabilities of these two sets, not to mention their rich streaming app capabilities, these two new models may have the broadest appeal of any displays we've introduced to date."
With the acclaimed Internet Connected Experience (I.C.E.™) platform onboard, both the SL42B-C and SL47B-C offer viewers a rich ecosystem of connected content, with preloaded apps including Netflix, Vudu, and Pandora. Built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi access and a 10/100 Ethernet connection also ensure that connectivity is never an issue, and the TVs' IR remote, complete with integrated QWERTY-style keyboard on the flipside, make navigation easy and intuitive.
For those who prefer a more direct connection to their personal pictures, music, and video collections, the SL42B-C and SL47B-C also include a USB media port for quick and easy access to your personal music, as well as three HDMI inputs with CEC (one with Audio Return Channel compatibility), an antenna input, component and composite video inputs, and a music port, as well as an Audio Only mode to conserve energy while you're just listening to music. Other energy-saving features include Auto Power Off and full Energy Star certification. Both models also feature V-Chip 2.0 parental control and an interactive setup guide deigned to simplify installation.
Like all BlackSapphire models, the SL42B-C and SL47B-C also benefit from onboard Dolby Digital decoding and XinemaSound™ 3D, a rich digital signal processing platform. By employing the same sort of crosstalk elimination technology used in high-end soundbars, XinemaSound 3D delivers crisp, clean stereo separation and an engrossing cinematic soundfield. Equal Loudness Contours also ensure that bass remains rich and perceptually balanced at any volume, and Clear Dialog processing keeps voices front, center, and wholly intelligible at any listening level.
