The 579 X-Series is JVC's least expensive line of LCD televisions that falls in the mid-range of other manufacturers with a 1080p native resolution. JVC differentiates their televisions by using their own proprietary image processing technology on their "GENESSA" chip. The 2008 X-Series televisions succeed the 2007 versions, though the difference in specifications is minor. The most notable change over the 2007 models is a redesign of the cabinet for a slimmer profile and making the speakers bottomfiring. Sitting above the X-Series of televisions is the P-Series which add a built-in iPod docking station.
