Bring home big entertainment thrills with this top-of-the-line TV from JVC! Like other models in JVC's advanced I'Art line, the AV-36F802 features Real Flat™ flat-screen technology, plenty of inputs to accommodate today's multi-source A/V systems, plus an upscale silver finish. And with a 36" screen, this flagship TV gives you 25% more screen to look at than a 32" model — get ready to be impressed!

Flat picture tubes cost more to manufacture, but the benefits are obvious at first glance: perfect image focus from corner to corner and reduced glare from room lights and daylight. The AV-36F802 features JVC's Digital 4 Mega 3D digital comb filter. This cutting-edge 10-bit design packs a 4 Megabit memory for more accurate sampling between video frames, which helps eliminate dot crawl and cross color interference.

For hookup versatility, you get a total of 4 A/V inputs, including 2 component video inputs. Conveniences include an illuminated multibrand remote with DVD/VCR/cable box/DBS control, plus the channel-surfing ease of 2-tuner picture-in-picture.

Real Flat Picture Tube: This television incorporates a Real Flat Picture Tube, which provides a more natural-looking picture, one free of distortions from corner to corner. The flat tube also helps reduce ambient light reflections to produce crystal-clear images.

Hyper Deflection Yoke: JVC's Hyper Deflection Yoke increases image resolution across the screen by improving the accuracy of the electron beam gun. Better overall image resolution is achieved by increasing the scanning precision and decreasing any image distortion and color shifting of the image.

Real Color Creation and Real Detail Creation: JVC's Real Color and Real Detail Creation ensure the picture you see on your flat TV has the best color and detail reproduction possible. This baseband tint circuitry maximizes the CRT color level so that any incoming signal is as rich, vibrant, and has as much detail as the original programming.

Velocity Scan Modulation: The velocity scan modulation circuitry varies the electron beam's horizontal scanning speed to help accentuate the differences in picture brightness to sharpen the edges of images, creating a vibrant and clear picture.

10-Bit 3D Y/C Digital Comb Filter: The 10-Bit 3D Y/C Digital Comb Filter provides better sampling between frames to eliminate dot crawl and cross-color interference than standard 3D Y/C Digital Comb Filters. The result is a smoother and more natural picture.

Invar Shadow Mask: JVC's Invar Shadow Mask makes use of a special alloy that resists thermal distortion and provides bright, detailed pictures and the truest, purest colors under even the most demanding conditions.

Dynamic Focus: Dynamic Focus utilizes a beam gun with Double Quadrapole lenses to correct beam-spot distortion at the screen edges. The result is uniformly sharp focus across the entire screen and improved focus precision from corner to corner.

Noise Clear Circuitry: JVC's Noise Clear Circuitry, also known as video noise reduction circuitry, detects and reduces noise, giving you a crisper, clearer picture.

Apacon: Apacon is a circuit that enhances picture sharpness by sharpening and speeding up the transitions between dark and bright. Apacon ensures that details are enhanced, so the picture is always clear and sharp.

Advanced Dual Tuner Picture-in-Picture: Two tuners eliminate the need for a second video source for picture-in-picture. You can swap the inset picture with the main screen, move the inset to any corner of the screen, even freeze the inset image to catch a phone number.

On-Screen Menus: The on-screen menus can be displayed in English, French, or Spanish.

BBE High Definition Audio: BBE High Definition Audio gives the television a natural, clear sound. BBE compensates for the inevitable phase and amplitude distortions that prevent sound from being its purest.

Hyper Surround Sound: Hyper Surround Sound adds a three-dimensional sound to stereo programs.

Parental Control: V-Chip technology allows you to block unsuitable programming for younger viewers. Blocked programs are protected by a 4-digit password.

Sleep Timer: The sleep timer switches the television off after a specified amount of time. The sleep timer can be set to 15, 30, 45, 60, 75, 90, 105, 120, 135, 150, 165 or 180 minutes.

On/Off Timer: The On/Off timer allows you to program the television to turn itself on and off. You can use the timer as an alarm to wake up, to help you remember important programs, or as a decoy when you're not home. If the television is on when a timer event is about to start, a Timer Preview window will appear. The Timer Preview window will appear in the lower right corner of the screen seven seconds before the timer is programmed to begin. When the timer activates, the preview picture will become the main picture.

Remote Control

RM-C301G Remote: The supplied remote is pre-programmed to operate this unit and a number of functions on other brands of A/V components, including DVD players, VCRs, cable boxes, and satellite receivers. A glow-in-the-dark "Light" button allows you to illuminate the channel and volume buttons for five seconds, making for easy operation in the dark.
