great while it lasted


We had the set for about 8 months when the picture quickly became so dark that it was unwatchable. The company we bought it from sent out a technician who determined that it needed a new lamp. I was given appox. a date for the lamp to arrive (a week), ...

Great HD picture, very little glare on the screen.

I will never purchase another JVC product again!!!

Product Specifications

The HD-56G786 is a 56" widescreen television with 3-chip D-ILA technology. JVC's exclusive three color (1280 x 720) chip technology provides a superior high contrast, flicker-free image. D-ILA is also brighter and more natural than other micro display technologies. JVC's 4th generation D.I.S.T. detects and seamlessly up-scales any video source to display at 720p. New Genessa, the world's 1st CPU dedicated to image processing, provides 32bit "turbo" powered picture processing. The Genessa chip insures faster and more efficient sampling that drastically reduces jagged edges and increases the resolution of any video source. A built-in ATSC tuner allows you to receive over-the-air digital terrestrial broadcasts. The CableCARD slot eliminates the need for a set top box to descramble local cable programming (depending upon cable operator availability). By examining the brightness level of incoming image sources, new Smart Picture technology compensates for scenes, frame by frame, to insure they are displayed at the perfect brightness level without sacrificing contrast and detail.
