While others bring 1080p throughout their lineup, JVC has just announced several new 720p 768p LCDs. With a native resolution of 1366x768, the new TVs are available in sizes of 32-, 37- and 42- inches and feature a new scaler designed to improve performance over composite signals. While that might come in handy for PS3 owners having trouble with backwards compatibility, most of us will be taking advantage of the two pairs of HDMI and component inputs. The LT-32E478, LT-37E478 and LT-42E478 are all slated to ship in March with prices of $1,100, $1,500 and $1,700, respectively. The E488 series sets will follow the next month in the same sizes and prices, but with a black cabinet. Hopefully by then we'll have an idea of what contrast ratio and refresh rate are included in these sets, but it's not like you'd still be caught dead buying anything less than 1080p in the year 2007, would you?
