Posted by at 6:48 pm on January 7, 2009

JVC TeleDock LCD televisions, the first to offer an integrated iPod dock, are all-new for 2009 and feature enhanced iPod compatibility and more versatility. The new line includes five models, including two that feature JVC’s 120Hz Clear Motion Drive III technology, offering a powerful combination of performance and convenience.  

The new five-model JVC TeleDock series is comprised of the 32-inch class LT-32P300 (31.5-inch diagonal), the 42-inch class LT-42P300 (42-inch diagonal), the 46-inch class LT-46P300 (45.9-inch diagonal), and the two Clear Motion Drive models -“ the 42-inch class LT-42P500 (42-inch diagonal) and the 46-inch class LT-46P500 (45.9-inch diagonal).  

For 2009, JVC TeleDock televisions offer improved iPod compatibility. Each model includes a flip-down iPod dock at the base of the set, providing a direct connection for playback through the TV. Video files are easily played back on the television, music files can be played through the TV’s sound system, and photos stored on an iPod can be viewed on the TV. The docked iPod can be controlled from the TV’s remote, which includes a circular keypad with a control scheme that mimics the iPod’s control wheel. In addition, the iPod charges while docked whether the TV’s power is on or off.  

When an iPod is docked, a menu appears on the TV screen. Second generation TeleDock sets display a comprehensive iPod-like menu that allows selection of music or video playback and also supports music search. During video playback, low resolution files, such as internet videos, can be displayed in a small screen mode. Higher resolution video can be shown in nine aspect modes at full screen.  

For 2009, the TeleDock line offers the following enhancements:

  • During music playback, song title, artist, album and genre are all displayed on the TV screen;
  • With a PC connected to the TV (by PC and USB and HDMI (or D-Sub) connections ), iTunes can be displayed on the TV and synched with the docked iPod;
  • When a PC is connected to a TeleDock TV, powering up the PC will automatically power-up the television;
  • Music stored on the iPod can be played through the TV while watching TV programming, and the TV program or other video source can be changed while the music is playing; in addition, the sound can be swapped between the iPod and the TV program sound;
  • With music playing from the iPod, photos stored on the iPod or photos stored on an external device connected to the set’s USB port can be viewed on the TV;
  • During video playback, pushing the Display button will display on-screen the video title

Besides the iPod dock and playback features, JVC’s new P-Series LCD TVs are full 1080P HD (1920 x 1080), full featured high definition displays. Highlights include digital noise reduction, dynamic backlight and 1080 24p/30p output. Each features a universal remote with direct input access, a side-mounted USB photo viewer, and ATSC/QAM tuning.  

Connections include three HDMI inputs, two component inputs, two S-video inputs, PC input (D-sub) and an analog video output.  

The sound package delivers 10 watts per channel to a pair of JVC’s exclusive oblique cone speakers.  

All five models feature will ship in April with a gloss black finish including the base and a new light “diffuser” front illumination. The P300 models radiate blue light while the P500 series models feature a white light radiating from the front panel. The diffuser is made of frosted acrylic and distributes the light across the bottom panel of the sets. The illumination is dimmable and defeatable in the menu.

  1. well its really nice to see ipod dock for tv.i can see my ipod videos on my TV.i have dought that what about the audio quality ?would it be nice?

  2. Thanks for the post.

    I have not use the JVC units. But with my Touch and 3G Nano I have found the video look almost as good as DVD on both SD TV and LCD HD TVs.

    So will a Blu-ray bet the video output? Yes, since the video coming out all current iPod is SD. Only the AppleTV does HD, then only at 720P.
