The SL Series is one of JVC's premier entries into the LCD television market for 2008 focusing entirely on a slim profile featuring a maximum depth of 2.9 inches and providing a 1080p native resolution. Using similar technology as Hitachi and LG-Philips for their slim offerings, the panel itself measures 1.5 inches thick with most of the circuitry located in the center of the back of the unit. Other benefits to the slim profile is decreased weight (26.4 lbs) and reduced power consumption (145 watts). The SL series is a step up from the P-Series and X-Series featuring similar specs, but in a much thinner frame. Located above the SL Series is the flagship Procision series which contains the next generation GENESSA processor and is available in limited quantities.

GENESSA Chip - traditional television manufacturers house different image processing functions on different chips. JVC uses their GENESSA chip which is similar to a general purpose 32-bit CPU to handle all the image processing demans. JVC claims the integrated nature of their technology allows for clearer and more vibrant images.
The naming convention of the SL Series takes the form of: JVC LT-__SL89, where the __ are replaced by the display size.
