SALT LAKE CITY, July 31, 2014 – Smartphones might be the best choice for shooting family videos, but when it comes to capturing outdoor adventures, it’s best to stow that fragile phone and instead go for a JVC weatherproof camcorder that’s waterproof, shock proof, freeze proof and dust proof.
JVC is here at Outdoor Retailer, the largest gathering of the outdoor industry, demonstrating its full line of rugged, all-weather camcorders, including conventional full-featured models and a wearable point-of-view cam. The company’s new Everio camcorders feature JVC’s “Quad-Proof” structure – waterproof to a depth of 5 meters/16.4 feet, the ability to withstand a drop from 1.5 meters/4.9 feet, freeze-proof down to –10˚C/14˚F and dust proof – packaged in a familiar camcorder form factor. Rounding out their all-weather versatility, they float. And for extending outings on the water, the internal battery can provide 4.5 hours of recording.
The new Everio line’s Quad-Poof technologies were first offered in JVC’s Adixxion action camera, designed for shooting point-of-view action video. The Adixxion GC-XA2 offers the same weather-protection specs, but it can withstand a drop from 2 meters/6.5 feet. It features a built-in LCD monitor and Wi-Fi for streaming video to a smartphone, uploading to YouTube and still image transfer.
JVC’s Quad-Proof Everio camcorders offer a combination of performance capabilities and innovative features for those who want to take their videos beyond what a smartphone or other camcorders can deliver. In addition to their weather- and shock-proof attributes, JVC’s new Everio camcorders feature a KONICA MINOLTA HD LENS with 40x optical zoom, 2.5 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS image sensor, audio technology that reduces wind noise, and compatibility with third-party editing software, including iMovie and Final Cut Pro X.
ORLANDO, FL, July 15, 2014 – Smartphones might be the best choice for shooting family videos, but when it comes to capturing sportfishing and other outdoor adventures, it’s best to stow that fragile phone and instead go for a JVC weatherproof camcorder that’s waterproof, shock proof, freeze proof and dust proof.
WAYNE, NJ, May 14, 2014 – New JVC headphones designed specifically for children offer a comfortable, fun and safe alternative to adult-sized headphones for kids who want to enjoy their music, games and videos. The new JVC HA-KD6 headphones are an on-the-ear design, sized for kids and feature a volume limiter to prevent hearing damage. They’re available in four different bright color combinations and come with stickers so kids can personalize their headphones.
The HA-KD6 headphones are designed to fit children ages three and older. They come with a 2.62-foot (0.8m) cord, an ideal length for use with portable devices. A volume limiter prevents output volume from exceeding 85dB to prevent damage to young ears.
Soft ear pads make the headphones comfortable to wear for extended periods. The wide headband also contributes to comfort and can be decorated with the included stickers or a child’s own stickers. No painted parts are used, another feature that makes them safe for use by children.
The HA-KD6 headphones come in four color combinations: pink/purple, red/yellow, purple/green and yellow/blue. They will be available in April 2014 for $29.95.
