Victor Company of Japan, Ltd. (JVC) has developed a 110-inch rear projection TV that will be the world's largest. The screen measures 243.5 x 137 cm. The display device employed in this system is JVC's proprietary reflective liquid crystal panel "D-ILA" featuring the so-called "full HD" (1920 x 1080p) resolution. The specifications of the optical system and light source used in the TV are similar to those of 50- and 60-inch commercial products. Power consumption is 220 W.

The screen is not produced by combining several parts together but developed as a single component by Toppan Printing Co., Ltd. "Given Toppan Printing's recent technology that can manufacture a screen of this size, we made this prototype as a starter," says a JVC spokesperson. The commercialization of this rear projection TV has not yet been determined.
