Press release from Well Above

SMPTE 2009 sees JVC Professional launch one of its most unique and innovative product ranges – full HD 3D LCD monitors for professional use.


The 46-inch GD-463D10 is only 1-1/2 inches (39mm) thick and uses JVC’s unique high-quality 3D visual engine to deliver a natural, flicker-free visual experience.  JVC plans to produce 2,000 units of the GD-463D10 a year for the global market.

The GD-463D10 provides flicker-free 3D images by adopting the Xpol ® polarizing filter method and battery-free passive-type circular polarizing filter glasses. Video input is compatible with industry standard line-by-line and side-by-side 3D formats. JVC’s unique 3D decoder circuit translates images into the optimal Xpol display format and demonstrates the ability to accommodate subtle gradations and shades of color.

Primary Features of JVC’s GD-463D10:

1. At 46 inches, the GD-463D10 is a large 3D LCD monitor for professional use. JVC’s unique high-quality 3D visual engine reproduces high-quality images befitting this new era of wide, high-resolution displays. The compact 1-1/2 inches (39mm) depth allows for greater flexibility in the layout of 3D visual environments.

2. The GD-463D10 is compatible with the industry standard line-by-line and side-by-side 3D video formats.

3. The Xpol polarizing filter method moves beyond the shutter method to provide a stable, flicker-free visual experience. Whereas the left eye and right eye information switches back and forth on a shutter glass display, the GD-463D10 always displays left and right images on the screen to offer clean, stable 3D images. The GD-463D10 includes two pairs of battery-free, light polarizing glasses.

4. The GD-463D10’s three HDMI input terminals are compatible with standard HD video signals, including 1080/24p, 50p, 60p, 50i and 60i. Input signals in line-by-line or side-by-side format can be displayed as 3D images (50i and 60i for side-by-side format only).

Development Background
Full HD digital broadcasting and blu-ray content are emerging as mainstays in the household visual environment while wide-screen and high-resolution images are more popular than ever. In such an environment, 3D content is now being looked upon as the next wave in visual entertainment. This is especially true in Hollywood, where the movie industry is planning more than twenty 3D movies in 2009 following the establishment of several full-scale 3D movie production and distribution companies in 2008. Clearly, demand for 3D monitors used in movie production, promotion and broadcasting test events is positioned to grow.

JVC Professional Australia/NZ National Sales and Marketing Manager Noel Oakes said, “Although JVC has developed the GD-463D10 to meet content producer requirements for a monitor capable of providing a rich 3D visual environment, the future is not just about entertainment. In fact, JVC sees opportunities for enterprise-use 3D monitors in fields that rely heavily on simulation, including the fields of scientific research and medical education.”

JVC Professional will be at SMPTE 2009 on stand A23.
